Default What are your winter hobbies?

I am currently dreading the day when i have to put the bike away... but its getting cold.

What do you guys do to pass the time in winter?

I go snowmobiling sometimes, and practice archery, but winter pretty much sucks... not excited.

I packed up the bike on Thursday. I get about a month of fishing now before the lakes freeze over and then it's snowboarding for a couple of months... 5 more months and I can put the bike back on the road hopefully...

It finally cool enough (80's) to ride my motorcycle, I make it a habit to do an x-mas ride and post pics here. Not to be a dick, but to give inspiration to my weatherbound brothers. I also mountain bike quite a bit and hike some as well.

But seriously, the tradeoff is I have to live in vegas and its not worth it. This will likely be my last winter in the desert. I'm actually looking forward to going somewhere with snow, Boulder CO is the current target.

www.sportbikes.net is my winter hobby, and possibly sex and making snow angels.

Given that my summer hobbies have included skydiving - heading for the earth headfirst from great heights....

And motorcycling - hurtling around primarily head first...

My winter addiction should come as no great surprise...




Hmmm. No youtube linking here eh....

YouTube - Skeleton 1

Winter really does not effect my riding to much, but since it won't be an oven in my garage I hope to get alot done on my Cobra.
