I walk a block and a half to work, so my KLR only gets out for the recreational runs (which don't exist in January).

Nope. Rode the bike to work this morning. Just snapped this pic as I'm getting to to go for another ride in just a bit. Is it warmed up yet outside? lol



Update: Nope, colder now than this morning, but good ride nonetheless

I know what ya mean. Mine sits out in an unheated garage all night and was pretty reluctant to start this morning even. I'll most likely will be driving the cage to work in the morning probably.

Are those just street tires or am I missing something? Did you have any snow down there? I'm not worried about the cold, but the snow is nicely packed into an ice sheet on the roads here. I'm not talented enough to keep the ol' KLR upright on that stuff.

Glad to hear somebody is still getting some road time! I'll break mine out again as soon as the roads are de-iced. Ice on me is a whole other issue, and not a show stopper.

Yep, those are just Avon Venom street tires. They stick like glue on hot pavement but suck on the cold stuff. IMHO anyways... We haven't got much snow down this direction. Just freezing cold for the most part. They were still laying the salt to the roads though. You can see it dripping off the tires in the pics. Yesterday, for the ride in, I had fairly clean roads right up until about 1/2 mile from work. Then it got a little hairy from there. Unfortunately, I have some errands to run before I get to work this morning and have to drive the cage today. Somehow, I don't think that even if I roll all the windows down and plug the heated riding gear into the cigarette lighter, it's just not gonna be the same.

Late night ride....

Does tooling around the yard and neighborhood on the XT600 last night around 10 pm count for a winter ride?

~ Our house dog got loose, so (for the kids) my oldest daughter and I rode around looking for him.

Short of becoming spam here, let's just say that I have been blessed enough to be able to work in the same arena that we all enjoy playing in.
