Just put a deposit on an '01 Suzuki SV650S today. I'm going to be picking it up in a couple weeks.

If there isn't snow on the ground I will be on the bike. I got a good deal on it so I couldn't pass it up.

I believe that Sept/October is the best time to buy a bike.

All I know is January is a horrible time to buy a bike, especially when its a long winter. I don't think I got to ride that bike until mid April.

02 Vstar 650 classic. Just took a 2100 mile solo trip around the UP and lake Michigan. Even did a lot of seasonal roads, some were a bad idea.

I usually get a few rides in per month every month of the year. That year there was snow on the ground from december to april. I don't mind cold, but riding in snow makes me nervous.

I'm with you. I ride most of the year, but ice is bad. Good gear can make up for cold though.

The pic of the bike on the side stand in the loose sand makes me nervous as hell. Road bikes are too heavy and not zippy enough for loose sand, I've proven that a time or two, and road sand tastes like shit. Somebody got lucky, and the bike didn't fall over in the loose pack.

Yeah, that turn was a mistake. I had just passed a couple seasonal roads that were gravel and had a little parking area by the water. The one I went on quickly turned to sand and went directly to the beach. I carry a little kickstand block that I was using in that picture so it wouldn't sink. Turning it around right there took some work.
Another picture from behind, the water was maybe 30 ft in front of the bike.
