You might have better luck that time of year staying south and riding west. February is one of the colder months in New England. Here in Vermont it's typically single digits or teens above zero (F) with nights below zero. Typically the first motorcycles seen on the road around here are dual sports, and they are rarely seen before mid-March.
I got a sidecar to travel with my dog. He never complains, is delighted to be with me, approves of my dietary choices, is a social butterfly who helps me meet folks, appreciates a good beer, snuggles better than my wife, and hangs on my every word as if it's the most profound thing he's ever heard.
