Will happen. But so what? Then you'll have another bike for spring.

Yeah, it is pretty nice. I don't get to punt all the humans and canines out of here until 5.

Those are all the 'classic' model with spoke wheels and leather covered bags. I desire the standard model with the alloy wheels and painted sidecases.

Try again.

c) buy now while prices are low, get caught up on maintenance and add any necessary accessories over the winter.

Yes. Well, that is good advice.

Give me a shout if you want to ride the TMAT Cental south from the cities and the TMAT East back tomorrow. Might be cold and wet but we've all been there.

I thought about PB as well. The wx is making me think one day on the bike may be better than 2 days with a night on the (cold wet) ground in between.

Looking to get a wr250 by April-ish.

If I get it now I could run it on the frozen lakes and ride up north if the snow isnt to deep. I usually use my 4wheeler but I think a bike could be fun and I wouldint give up ALL my riding due to winter.

so...
a.) buy now and play with it in the snow.

b.)Wait till April because I will be disappointed in snow riding and now have another bike to store in winter.

let me know what you'all think....drunks...
Buy now, get some studded tires for it and run it on the ice. Skip the snow - ice with studded tires is way better. Use the thaw to set it up just right for spring.
