How could you do such a thing Phil haha glad I'm not as far north as some... all I need is a little leather to keep me moving, never snows in SC well maybe one day in 3yrs so I guess some are just luckier then others when it comes to weather

Yeah, unfortunately in Maine it will be snowing quite regularly in the near future. We've had great weather for awhile now, but the temp doesn't get much higher 40. So unless I get some heated gear its tough to go much more than a few miles.

I wonder what the penalty "will be" for me leaving the house on Thanksgiving (after eating of course!) and going for a 2 hour ride? (wx man says 70*F for that day).

I can not believe this weather, Went for a ride this afternoon temps in the low 50s. I am getting a bit anxious to start skiing.

Yesterday I took the nomad out for one last ride, changed the oil, cleaned it up & prepared myself to put it away for the season. Got the bike on October 1st, and have put about 1500 miles on it through yesterday, & it would've been more had it not been for some sub-freezing mornings, which is normal for this part of the country. At some point next weekend it will go into storage until the spring, can't wait until its warm enough to ride again!

Changed the oil and filter (Amsoil synthetic) and cleaned and oiled the air filter. Then went on a ride. Upper 60's in Louisville today - can't complain about that.
