Guess I'll have to get a gas can to top off the tanks, and let 'em idle in the shop

Yeah that too.

A lot of the recent winters here haven't had too much snow... just cold and dry... no reason not to ride then, just gotta gear up

I ride year around as long as there isn't snow or ice on the road. Although it does get a little nippy below 40.

40? psshh
If you have decent gloves, 40 is nothing. Throw on a turtle neck on under my jacket and I'm set to 20. I'm still missing the gloves though.

Yeah- turtleneck is nice there. Just pull the top into the bottom of your lid, and it's great. But when you get where your going, that tall collar can be a drag. I've been looking for an Underarmour shirt with a tall enough collar with a zipper. That chit's expensive!

No snow yet, but it's supposed to tomorrow, and it's rainy and windy as all hell today.
