I too just completed my first full winter of riding. It was great. Average temp was about -15C (5F). There was about a two week period of -30C (-22F), those were tough. The only missed days were from snow storms and there were less than five days that I couldn't do it. I've never had this many kms in this early in the year. Investing in proper clothing and lighting was the best thing I did. It sure is hard the machine though. Had it in a few times for repairs. The constant darkness was hard to deal with also. Motorist were more unbearable and more impatient. I'll tell you this, I am definately a better person for it. For those who say stuff like "idiot", "moron", (%$%&&^%$#*), suck it up. My personal favorite was "I hope you get hit so I can enjoy the hot buffet at your funeral", real nice. There's my rant, and here's to another great year on the bike.
