  • How do the rest of you guys do it??

    It's only been a little over a week since my dowel pin made a break for it and i'm jonesing for a ride! I'd love to take off right now spend the day darting in and out of the redwoods and a long the Pacific coast, but I'm stuck here. How do you guys who "store" your bike for the winter months do it? I think i'd loose my mind. ...What's left of it. ...So what are you're distractions to keep your mind of the fact you're not riding? Under water basket weaving? 100,000 piece puzzles? Canning eggs? Philately? What's your secret? ...Enquiring minds want to know.







    ...Maybe I should switch to Sanka.

    Work on my bikes, my everyday rides, fixing/upgrading. Also work on bikes I am restoring. Never a dull moment.

      youtube bike videos, forums, upgrading bikes, bike shops, This is probably the reason why I end up switching bikes so often. Watching the Ol'lady work out is also nice too.
      Winter storage sucks!
      the first thing you need to do is have a back up bike, that way if one is down you can ride the other. I keep one set-up for colder rides and one for warmer rides.
      Cleaning out from between the couch cushions, crayons and a coloring book and get you lost for hours. Popping bubble wrap, watching the trees grow, shoveling snow, polishing the toilet,... winter time us just so much fun.
      Hope you are back up and in the wind soon.
      owning a motorcycle is not a matter of life or death, it is much more important than that

        Today I'm cleaning up and detailing my Indian. Seeing Cikes beautiful Chieftain reminded me I have neglected my Indian. I have been spending so much time building the roadstar

          This is my personal basement layout. I also play guitar and like any house projects.

            That's really cool Shores, you did a hell of a job on that.

          Awesome, Shores! I collect old Marx trains and restore them.

          Also, dabble in RC sailboat, fixed wing and rotary aircraft, and anything else I can find to mess up.

              Winter lay-up is time to get in touch with your feminine side...watch movies, paint, eat bon-bons and go starl raving nucking futs listening to you guys in the South talk about how you went for a ride today...cause it was 70 and sunny.

                Hunt, fish, shoot a pile of ammo then reload it. Try to chase the wife around the house but either she's getting faster or I'm getting slower.

                    You might enquire, or ask about, the difference between the words enquire and "inquire." Good question. The answer is, not much. They are the same word with different spellings. Typically the British prefer the "e"
                    version, but both are correct.

                    Some of us work on or spelling. Enquiring minds?
                    ...work on or spelling. Really?

                      hibernation......it is easy to store the bike. with the ice that resides on my driveway in the winter, well i cant imagine trying to ride my bike over it. i have a hard enough time walking.

                        Well, I have 3 R*s... I go and look at them longingly often... and, I have a finished basement, and one is always inside over the winter for extensive, ah, messaging! This year, the bobber got the wires through the handlebar mod... and, interesting how that when you bob R* fenders, the rear will develop cracks you didn't think were possible! I devised a unique (incredibly cheap) way of dealing with that matter, and I'm trusting I put an end to that forever, as well! When you can't ride... You wrench!!!

                              Unless is raining, I ride. It gets a little cold sometimes here in Myrtle Beach but, not enough to keep me from riding. I use a snowmobile suit when it gets too cold.

                                Currently waiting for the ice and snow to leave my lane so i can get on the road. Might have to wait longer as they road crew sprayed brine again today.

                                  I restore antique tractors and antique shop equipment. Any day in my shop is a good day.

                                    Any particular color of tractor you restore? I enjoy old iron but I'm color neutral.
