Hello, I am a female rider, originally from Newfoundland Canada but now live on Prince Edward Island. I have been riding for 5 years now and I recently purchased a 2010 victory cross country. I am counting the days here for another month or so to pass so I can actually ride it, because sadly we still have snow on the ground here.

Depending on temperatures it can be white soggy wet and heavy or white fluffy crap. Either way it sucks to shovel it and makes riding impossible. ��

Point of order ma'am.
I get no kick from winter cruising but on principle I contend that snow is a challenge, ice is a nightmare and salt is a tragedy.
Pop diligently avoids putting impossible and riding in the same sentence.

Welcome. You are lucky to live in one of the finest motorcycling destinations in this hemisphere.

I agree, the salt and ice is bad for the bike. Better weather will get here soon I hope.
