For me personally, motorcycling is neither a sport nor a hobby. It's a form of transportation that I use during the months of April through November. Currently, I only ride on the street. When those streets become cold, slippery and/or snowy, then it's time to store the motorcycles for the season.
Good Luck and Happy Riding, DM635. May you ride safe and may your family be worry free. Any time you're on the road, whether it be in 4 wheels or on 2, there are risks involved, everyone knows that. The issue is that, on 2 wheels, the results of a problem can be much more devastating. It's not where ANY of us ever want to be.
