Motorcycle Season?

Wondering when the season opens up for two wheeling? Just left Kansas where I was able to ride up until a few weeks ago and recall it safe enough around March/April.

An interesting thing in the C/S area is the diversity of the weather in areas just a few miles apart. In late fall/early spring, it can be nice in town and snowing where I live in Peyton, about 30 miles northeast. Of course, it can be the other way around, it can be nice here and freezing rain or snow closer in to the mountains. There are a number of guys I know that ride virtually year round, generally only put off by any solid ice coverage of the roads. I usually start riding in April and can ride well into October, but the last 8 miles to the house are gravel and the county maintenance work is really crappy. don

Man I hate to ride my street bikes on gravel roads. They get dirty and don't act like a trail bike does. I grew up on trail bikes so slipping and sliding isn't a problem but chipped paint on my street bikes t's me off.

In the summertime, beautiful weather, there's always a lot of bikes at work (we seem to have a lot of HD and Victory riders) and everyone's checking out everybody's bike, you know how it is. They'll be looking at my bike and making cracks about it being dirty! I'm thinking...well, probably shouldn't put that in print...LOL! Anyway, when it's wet, and these roads get really bad with any moisture on them, I don't ride to work...I get the usual "Hey, where's your bike? How come you aren't riding?" I usually just tell them to "ride on out to the house and we'll go for a ride, from there!" Tends to stop the BS!! And, it really is hard on the tin. I'm thinking about some paint work this year, the old Fatboy has earned it! (I'm referring to the motorcycle!)
