maybe last nice ride of the mn season?

Went for a ride with a couple friends tonight to lake Mille Lacs.
Was pretty nice. Definitely good to get out for a bit and give the bike a good run.

Beautiful scenery up there man. Wait, did my buddy from Iowa run up there?

Please tell me you're a year round(when possible) rider...don't let the F'ed up Minnesota take you down!
Us northwest riders finally got the weather we are familiar with and with half of my bike missing do to the previous owner eating shit, it's a constant battle to keep it going, BUT!!! There is one crazy bastard in this county that is braving the weather when no others will, AND doing it on a fuckin GSXR! (eat shit ferris)...don't let the weather dictate your riding, I'm sure you're more than capable of controlling that Honda in crappy weather, just be careful of wet leaves and Fir needles if you have them

Below freezing is no riding for me. Frost and ice aren't worth it.
But otherwise, I ride. Have to cage sometimes to bring the little one to school though.

And about the ducati, a friend bought that this summer. Lives here in Brainerd.

Garage
Was it a conscious decision to park the bikes in all the bird crap for the picture?

But seriously, it looks like you guys had fun. Lots of good riding up there, just watch out for deer.

Yeah, the bird crap was everywhere. We gave up on finding a clean spot. I was wondering how long until someone noticed it.
Weirdly, no deer yesterday. Thanks though!

Couple mornings in the low 40s here so far. Haven't seen frost yet. Either way, just layer up, grin and bear it. I should probably get smart some year and get some actual cold weather gear. I really think a balaclava, or even a scarf, would make a big difference.

Just wait until I can justify a proper winter-bike...

Not me.

I delivered newspapers year round, in the rain, in the cold, in the snow on a CL100 Honda when I was 14 & 15. Rode my V65 Magna to Daytona Beach raining the whole way. Foul weather riding is not fun IMO.
