You are not so far from me and have the same winter weather. Got my first bike in 1965 in Kansas when working Radar Repair in the Air Force. I am in Upstate NY about 25 miles south of Rochester out in the country. About a mile from US20 near the Finger Lakes region with lots of nice roads and hills for riding through some pine forest and vineyards. It is my R&R these days. Sold an original Venture when the cancer came that had 115,000 miles on it. I have grandkids in Tulsa, OK and Oakland, CA and USAF friends all the way so have been across the country a few times. No more of that now, but still riding and that is the best therapy for my wife (of 45 years) and I. Up here we have had some frost and so it is starting to think of putting the V Star in it's winter place and tuning up the snow thrower. It is always close and on a battery tender just in case. I do think of my friends in the south that ride all year round, but I like the seasons.
