Gettin the itch

Man it's only December and I need a ride. Hoping for some decent weather so I can get a ride in but the low today is 15. Only been riding 3 years and I am having withdrawals. Can't wait for spring/summer. Thinking about moving south with all you all year riders!!

I hear ya bro! I put our bikes up for the winter, back in Oct.! I am trying really hard not to get the itch. lol so, what I am doing, is making plans for rides for next year! also, right now things are kind of busy with the Holidays and all. so I don't really have time for a ride, let alone time to think about riding. lol now, next month, all I will be doing is thinking about riding!

as for moving south? we are so there with ya! we plan on doing that too. it just won't be anytime soon though. BLAST!

if it goes vroom or boom, I LIKE IT!

Lol, you got the itch early man. I understand though. Sometimes the itch never leaves for the off season Maybe you'll get your wish and have a string of days that will let you scratch.

Well, I saw a rider out here in sunny southern Alberta one day last week, just a day or so before a nasty snow storm we had. I didn`t get a real good look at him in the city traffic, but I think he was astride a larger dual sport bike. He must have been out scratching his itch.
