The temperatures are getting cold in the morning. My front tire was slipping a little bit on a fun right hander right near my house. The list of repairs on my bike is pretty long already, I'd hate to add to it.

Be careful guys out there, and always be wary of cold tires!

Hopefully like last years...not bad at all! I rode at least 1 time every month for all 12 months in 2005. It was great. I couldn't believe we were riding in Nov, Dec, Jan & Feb in NY!

Hey get out of here you West Coast bastid - lol. Yeah I wish we had your weather all year round.

On a side note...becareful in the morning and at night. I just came back from a ride and my tires stepped out a few times even after I thought they would have heated up enough for a bit more aggressive riding.

would this be a bad time to complain about the 90 degree heat we had today?

seriously though, one small trick to keeping your tires from being EXTREMELY cold in the morning:

If you park in the garage, keep the bike up on stands. Keeping it off the freezing cold concrete in the winter should help keep the rubber slightly warmer since the ambient temps are usually not as cold as the concrete. :beer:

You Fockers are complaining already?!? HOLY ****!!!!! This is BEAUTIFUL riding weather!!! Pretty much perfect for Leathers! So put away those textile and/or Mesh Jackets and put on a real one! You think this is bad??? This is nothing!!!

Try riding in the snow!!!! Then you'll appreciate what you have now!
