It's fall.  Lets Ride!

It’s hard to believe that we are on the backside of September and that fall is only a few days away.  For many of us the days are getting shorter and the weather is getting colder and I’m seeing fewer and fewer motorcycles on the road.  So for all you fair weather riders out there who’ve put your bikes away read up.

Fall can be one of the best times of the year to ride.  First, many of the morons on the road have retreated to their villages to concentrate on work and getting their kids back to school.  In other words, fewer cars on the road and fewer idiots too.  Second, the colors that come out this time of year and the crisp feel and smell of the air is absolutely stimulating. 

What about the cold?  Well, for those out there who would rather stay warm then endure a little drop in temperature to go riding, there are ways to stay warm on those crisp fall days.  First, invest in heated grips.  For all the aftermarket “stuff” I’ve purchased over the years, heated grips are by far the most useful I’ve purchased.  For under $200.00 you get a product that will keep your hands warm.  It’s a bit odd, but when your hands are warm, the rest of the body feels warm.  Second, invest in an inexpensive, two piece rain suite.  The rain gear keeps the wind from getting through as well as it does the rain.  This will keep you warm, provided you wear warm cloths under the suite.  If you have the means, there are electric vests and gloves that can also be added and for those who really have the means, heated seats are out there too.

So get your motorcycle out of the garage, get warm and go riding.  I guarantee you’ll get hooked on riding in the fall.
