The bugs are very bad this way also. I have not bothered to wash the bike in the last month it is filthy. I will give her a nice bath and wax before winter so she will be nice and clean for the first ride of the year.

I am still riding the bike I won't put it away until it starts snowing. I went a bought a pair of chaps to take the chill out of my legs and they work great. I am not a big fan of chaps but if they let me ride longer I am all for them.

I have a pair of Ballistic 5.0 pants that I wear. Since they are waterproof they are good at keeping my legs warm. When it gets real cold, I'll wear a pair of sweats over my jeans. I'll ride in upper 30's...

10 day forecast on the weather channel has all highs near 70 so i think we're good for october!

I am winterizing my bikes November 4th no matter what because I'll be back at my parents that weekend. They have a three car garage and give me one bay in the winter.

i'm going for my first ride since my accident this coming Saturday! :woot i'm pretty excited and nervous all at once. one of my friends is letting me ride his gs500, so at least i won't be dealing with a different bike :lol

i got a job as a part-time photographer at the college i'm attending, so i'm pretty stoked about that too. :D now that i've got a foot in the door, i'm hoping i can do well enough to advance up within the department.

riding wasn't too bad. this has been the coldest i've rode with the 650 so far, and the wind protection is alot better. i didn't hardly even get a chill during any of my riding this weekend. the wind does hit me in the neck though, which feels good for a little, but cold after a while. i'm probably getting a double bubble or something for it this winter.

i picked up a tank protector and i need to order some Stomp Grip pads. being so short i find myself sitting right at the tank the whole time, so i was getting some marks on it. i like keeping my stuff pretty, so i had to get something.

2,5xx miles on it now!

Tie a bandanna around your neck and it will keep the chill off your neck. I do this in the morning when I am going to work.

this weekend was my "fall break". i didn't have class thursday or friday, but the weather was pretty shitty. i sold my lil Ninja, though, so i'm pretty happy about that.

i've rode up to East Brady a few times. AMAZING view!
my new windscreen showed up a couple days ago so i'm going to put it on this weekend and maybe go take some new pics of the bike. i got some stomp grip pads on the way too, hopefully they'll be waiting for me when i get home.
