    I don't know if this belongs here but woke up this morning and there was frost on the bike. Summer is over.
    I know there will more good days left but the frost was a harsh reality that ridding days are numbered!

    Cheer up! frost is not snow and it kills the bugs, just think, no more cleaning after every ride.

    I agree - and I'm "old school" when it comes to this topic - I have no heated gear but I layer with new material stuff like Under Armour and I'm good to ride as long as the roads are dry!

    It gets a bit hard to ride in 30mph winds and blizzard snow. We here in Wisconsin do not have much more riding time. although I do love the fall, bike runs awesome.

    Umm sorry to hear winter is closing in on you Mat. You should try to get some sort of small shed to put that good looking Fat Boy in though. I can't imagine leaving my bike out each night the way I do my truck. My Truck hates my bike.

    I'm From Canada about 100 miles north of Toronto. The fall colours are just starting.
    My Girl and I have about a two hour ride tonight to go to a weding.
    We usauly have snow for the first week of November that stays. I know we still have some time left, but the frost kinda through me for a loop and made me realize that ridding days are numbered.
    Evrey body enjoy the fall colours and no bugs lol.
    Regards Fisher King
