hibernation: riders in the north prepare to sleep for 5 months.

what are your guys plans for the off season? assuming we dont have another mild winter in the north, many of us are gonna be off our bikes for months at a time.

Personally im sure i'll start whoring up the forum until i can get my mind off my bike by partaking in winter sports (binge drinking and snowboarding... not necessarily at the same time. well, half the time) and start a long process of getting my bike back up to 100% in time for april, when i can (legaly) ride again.

Once I can't ride anymore,
-I started throwing darts again.
Other things on the list are
-get new house unpacked/organized
-shop for the best deal on my new bike
-keep eye open for good deal on snowmobile (if we get snow)
-shop ATV's
-start singing karoke again
-brush up on Xbox360 and PS2 skills

That's about what I got planned, and then whatever comes my way as well.

It completely depends on what happens. Mild winter, sans snow and ice = less sand on the roads. So far here we have had seriously above normal temps and consistently. It isn't unusual to get some warm weather in late September, maybe a day or two in October but to come into the end of October in the 70's and 80's - crazy.
