It's getting cold in Wisconsin and riding season is close to ending.
The forecast doesn't look good but yesterday it was 50 and sunny so I went for a little ride to enjoy some of the fall colors.

Beautiful! We need more people to post their bike pics, and now is a great time to do it. Nice shot!

Awesome photo, Jack. What a difference in perspective. Trees are just beginning to change here in TX and the serious riding season has begun, where it's finally cool enough to wear a riding jacket. I'll get some photos of our midget trees that might look more like bushes to you:D

Here in central Mississippi, we ride all year long. The weather has indeed been perfect. I understand weather is an issue for many of you and do feel regret but always glad to see your continued attempts to ride. This is a great picture!

Rode close to 400 miles today, including a visit to historic Fort Griffin from 1867 to 1881, NE of Abilene, TX

Your seeing Valkyries in your dreams, LOL. Only 3 this time, + some latest generation GoldWings, a couple Harleys, an Indian, and older GoldWings.

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.

Depending on the North Texas weather next week, today might have been the last Fall ride for 6 of us. 240 miles including Eagle Mountain Lake, Hwy 4 and this monster (OK, they modestly call it ‘Large’) chicken fried steak at Mary’s in Strawn. It is actually 3 large steaks on a platter instead of a plate, so the potatoes or fries have to be served in another dish, and then another huge bowl of gravy that wouldn’t fit in the picture, note the fork as a size reference. The temps were definitely on the crisp side, but as you can see, we still have plenty of color in the trees.

Snow is here in Wisconsin and the temperature is starting to drop.
Bikes and car are under cover for the next few? months.

Good time to get projects done before your riding season blooms again or maybe sit back turn on the heat and put on a few pounds?
