Are you still riding this time of year????
« on: December 22, 2017, 10:33:00 AM »
Hi all,

So how many of us are still riding this time of the year?

I'm still commuting into work (London) on my Duke.

Its been incredibly mild for this time of the year, however my bike is absolutely filthy from the wet roads and muck being thrown up by all the cages  :003:

I've had to stop my journey a number of times to wipe and clean my visor!!! Horrible time of the year for us bikers, but I need my bike fix or I get grumpy!

Time to get the SDoc100 out tomorrow and give the bike a really thorough wash. Hoping Santa delivers more motorcycle cleaner for me this Christmas... I certainly need it!

Merry Christmas all!

Sometimes you need a really crooked road to get your head straight

Oh yes, just about to go out now. As you say, very mucky out there but at least there's no salt left on the roads.

Yes still riding had XCP  Rust Blocker treatment which allows the bike to clean up quicker whilst giving good protection.

Thinking about getting some heated gloves though as I suffer from cold hands by the end of my 1hr 30mins commute. Any suggestions?

Merry Christmas everyone!
