For those of us who love to ride motorcycles but also unfortunately live in the midwest or the east coast of the USA, winter is a time of restless impatience. The walls of our offices seem smaller than ever. The wind feels colder. The sky is even more gray. We obsessively watch the 10-day weather projections desperate for more temperate conditions on the horizon. There\’s an itch on our backsides that only a motorcycle in motion can scratch.
