After only 500 blissful miles since I bought her, today I brought my 2010 into the dealership for winter storage. I could not seem to get myself to leave the place. I am told I can visit her when I feel the need. Going to have to do just that and frequently (would that be weird?), or move from Minnesota so I can ride year round.

Winter Storage -

Hey Frosty, I'm sure that there are several members in a warmer climate who would be glad to take care of your bike this winter for you. If you weren't so far from Texas I'd volunteer to store it - shoot I'd even ride it a couple of times a week to keep fresh gas in her.....:)

Those 1800's are nice bikes - I made the mistake of taking one out for a test ride and I've had the up-grade bug ever since.

I feel your pain. Mine has been in the garage since Sandy came through. Looks like that is where she will stay until spring.

Thank God for Texas. I feel awful if she sets for two or three days at any time though the year. 105 degrees I will take and ride in it in place of putting her up for the winter. Wow, can't imagine having to do that, and I was raised in Michigan. Lol

So sad and I understand your pain. I grew up in Michigan and my first bike spent the winters in the basement with my roommates bikes. (Three of us) We had them out before the snow was gone.

I've been down here in Mississippi for almost 31 years and do enjoy taking the bike out year round. If it helps we don't mind y'all snow bound living vicariously through us Southern riders.

That's very kind of you, Mark. Hey, you know what would be REALLY nice and fitting to the Christmas season? For all of you in warm US climes to make us chilly willies a magnanimous offer: "Get anywhere near my home and you can borrow my Wing for 3 days!"

Now THAT would REALLY nice!:eek::p:D




Don't think I'll hold my breath!......:)

Well, if it's riding weather then I'll be on mine and I doubt you want to be on the back. But if you do get down here I'll bet I can find a bike to borrow. I've got a friend whose second bike is a Victory and I'll bet he would lend it out as it hardly ever gets ridden. So come on down!

I live at 5400 feet of elevation in Colorado. I ride all year unless there is ice on the road. I do have a nice garaqge for Lil Red to keep her warm and dry so I can spend the snow days making her pretty.

I refuse to put her into storage. Days like today and tomorrow lets you get her out and gallop down the road. even in dead of winter we dont get enough snow to put her away. I put my Gerbings gear on and go as long as there is no salt, snow or ice on the roads.

Well, you'd think not, but I left the last of my self-esteem in Sturgis in August, when I rode the full length of Lazelle Street TWICE on the back of my brother-in-law's Valkerie while picking up a replacement solenoid for Tatanka!:eek:

While wearing a rainbow dew rag....

On the other hand, I sure met a lot of friendly fellas who wanted to buy me drinks....

I had to explain to them that I don't drink....:eek::p
