Last winter was the stinker of all time. At least this year I've already done hundreds of miles of riding. Last winter, zip!

Nice thing about rain is that as long as it's above freezing you know there won't be frost on the roads. I scared the hell out of myself going down an unfamiliar side road off OR-30 early one bright winter morn, and about a quarter mile along suddenly realized there was no relationship between my throttle and ground speed because I was riding on unmarked new frost that I'd been mistaking for ordinary grayish road surface and my rear tire had all the traction of the Exxon Valdez in its moment of glory. Thankfully it was on the straight and level. I managed to get slowed down and turned around and made my way carefully back at about 1mph, my rear tire making those whizzing spinning-on-nothing sounds and me shamelessly boot-dragging on both sides.

And yeah, winter. I have been tempted to ride a few times, but the salt spray they are laying down all the time and the early darkness have really killed the urge.
Have you ridden one yet? If not, u should test ride one. They are amazing. Last week I was riding behind a Porsche Cayman S, which is a 0-60 in 3.6 seconds car. The guy punched it so I opened my throttle in 4th gear and I am happy to say that the FZ-09 was faster!

I will take some pics next week and upload them. I have tweaked the looks a bit too.

it dump a good 3-5" here, was fun to watch people trying to drive up the mountain on the way home from work, had a guy think he was hot shit and fly past me then make it maybe 100-200 yards before he spun out and was in the ditch.. also passed 2 priuses off the side of the road and a couple little SUV's stuck as well.... yet i made it in the lil chevy spark on eco tires..... some people just have no clue how to drive in "bad" weather
