I went for my last ride on the Valkyrie for this year and I ended up at the same place as last week, the tree has lost a few leaves.
I will be riding my F6B till it snows.

The fall colors are over here is the same tree with a different bike.
The Valkyrie is stored for the winter.
The weather forecast is showing 50-60's next week which is great because Oct was 15 degrees below average for most of the month.

Wow, you lost your leaves early! We still have a ton to fall before they're gone here in Virginia.


People ask me all the time if my bike is "stored for the winter". I never consider it stored for winter. I've been known to ride in sub-zero weather and am more than happy to take the mouthed "YOU ARE F*&KING CRAZY!" looks from people in their cars. If the streets are clear, it's potentially a riding day to me. I used to look over my motorcycle policy which at one time had a winter "sunny day" benefit, just to make sure there was no minimum temperature at which you could ride. These days I'm a bit more sane and likely won't ever ride in below freezing temps, but my bike is always a possible ride no matter what the time of year. You're lucky to have both a Valk and an F6B!


Thanks for the pic!

We get too much snow to kept to the bike ready to go. Too much salt on the streets and it's cold.
When I worked I would ride my bike to work in cold weather but 25 degrees was my cut off temperature it was a 10 mile ride my legs would be cold for about an hour.
