My bike has been stored since Oct. We had some warm weather that I could have ridden but my bike is stored in my cabin 1.5 hrs away.

Oh well, March will be here soon...

Some snow here too. But only two more days and the days start getting longer. I see one package under the Christmas tree that had a Victory label on it before they hid it. Maybe a t-shirt but if it is I know I'll love it.

The last 2 weeks have been rough; mother nature has been spitting enough snow in the morning to scare me away from riding. I don't mind the cold but I refuse to ride on snow or black ice.

It's been beautiful here in so cal. I just haven't had the time to go out for a ride, but I did go to the gym on my bike last night because parking at the gym sucks but if you have a bike you get the best spot.

my bike is away in the manger (aka, asleep in the shed) until March.
Around these parts, winter means very sandy roads and people that don't expect bikes to be out in the dead of winter.

Instead, every two weeks I take a big cup of coffee, go out to the shed, plug in the battery tender, and read my bike a story.
