Wow, didn't realize how long it's been since I posted in here. well, despite that length of time, not much to say. I rode as often as I could and tried to get as much experience possible. Managed to get some rides in the rain as well as some longer distance rides in. It was nice to get some of those under my belt, especially the rain. It freaked me out the first time, but after awhile I realized that if I just took my time and payed attention it would be just fine.
I finally parked the bike in late Oct, early Nov. Once it got below 50 during the overnight then it was time for me to park it. That's just a little too cold for me, I'm a baby. Not to mention I usually used it to commute and it didn't justify bundling up for a 5 minute ride to work.
It got really cold in Dec so I didn't miss the bike too much. Not to mention how busy I became once the Holidays rolled around. It snowed 6 inches today. As I grabbed the shovel to hit the driveway I was looking at my bike and longing for summer again. I caught myself driving a rural backroad on the way home today and thinking about how fun it is on my bike. Here's hoping for a quick end to winter.
