Season ending

As the 2007 riding season is winding down to an end, I thought it would be a good time for a poll.

I wouldn't say winding down to the end. I don't ever stop riding. I don't ride as much during the winter. I never completely store my bike, you never know when that nice day shows up during the winter.

I thought about those same options AFTER I posted the poll.

The fun part of the season has ended for me. I ran out of bike money two months ago. I must stop riding so I can save money, to prevent my bike or house from being repoed.

When I say stop riding, I mean riding for fun. I will still be commuting to work on my bike, since my car does not run and I cant afford to fix it.

I am getting a new bike come spring, so who knows the fate of the 955i. I spent less than I thought I would this year, but did not plan on buying two bikes this year.

Fer me this winter is all about getting the Duc ready for sale in the spring and getting ready to start track day riding in 08' (trailer, good leathers, widgets, tools, etc, stuff like that).
