    Used mine a couple of times this week for the first time this year. It's come out of it's Winter Hibernation with no problems. Time to start arranging it's spring service now.

    You warm weather riders! I've been riding all day, every day throughout this mild winter season.... But it is much more fun when the roads are drying out and the sun is shining. Roll on 4.30pm!

    Guilty as charged! I used to ride during Winters years ago, but really don't enjoy it so don't.

    You got it just in time, some lovely weather is starting to appear, I guarantee you won't want to use your van at all now my car feels a little left out nowadays, since I started riding last year there's only been 4 weeks where I haven't ridden it to work....winter weather can be interesting :P

    Ride safe

    I keep saying (pretty much every year) "This will be the year when I take my bike test" .. I wanted a bike when I first got wheels, but I needed a car because I'm a musician and I have a big flipping keyboard and stuff to carry about .. and just never got around to it since ..

    90 miles a day round trip makes coming to work so enjoyable! Riding a Yamaha FZS600 Fazer which is very economical and occasionally I bring out the Suzuki GSF1200S Bandit. What do you guys ride?
