In these parts riding into November is a risky proposition. You never know what the weather is going to be like, the roads are often covered with wet (and slippery) leaves, and patches of ice lurk here and there when the temps approach freezing. But every year I hold off putting the bikes away in the unlikely event that there will be one.more.ride.
I’m already feeling the effects of PMS as I don’t even remember the last time I was on two wheels. We were away for a couple of weeks and since returning have suffered through a steady stream of colder than normal, wet, rainy days. And that pattern appears to have settled in for the next couple of weeks at least.
Last week I put everything away but the Harley, and now it’s time to face reality and get her ready for bed as well. It’s going to be a l-o-n-g winter.
