If you dodge the sand and gravel, you may not go down... but the roads are still covered with salt, and it WILL eat your aluminum frame. My bike is staying parked until it rains for a few days.

Last winter I got my bike out fairly often for quick rides. This year, not one ride. I moved, and my bike is garaged 1/2 hour away at my old place, so it's a pain to go over there just to ride for an hour or so.

I still have to get my aftermarket exhaust put on before the m/c shop gets too busy.

Mine took me 10 minutes to put on.

It's supposedly a pain in the balls to get fitted right. Reading the VFR forum, it's definitely not a 10 minute job. It's the Lazer exhaust, 4 pipes(2 on each side) into 1. I don't have the tools, time, or patience.
