What do you guys do to keep you sane when not riding ??

Got a hell of a deal on new 1200s, only to have to store it for the winter, now I find myself binging on youtube videos and laundry list of upgrades I want to do.

Lots of youporn

Kidding aside I watch a shit load of YouTube videos. Life at Lean, 44 teeth, motogp videos anything to get my fix. Also whenever we get a decent day I'll take out my bike. Very rare but it happens. I rode on Christmas 2 years ago.

As I drive a car down the road I imagine what its like riding the same road but on a bike. Leaning in every turn and corner, throttle in the straights, wow was that girl I passed smiling at me? and then a loud horn from behind because the light has changed and Ive been day dreaming.

Dirtbikes for the super rainy transition months. Snowmobiles and downhill skiing for the frozen tundra months up here in Central Oregon. I typically can still sneak out rides once or twice a month but they are sketchy from all the gravel on the roads.

My favorite day to ride is Superbowl Sunday while the game is going on. Almost nobody on the roads out of town and 1/2 the time it is a clear day and warm. The other half it is snowing like hell and I'm skiing or riding the sled.

I always take the winter months to do some type of large upgrade to my bike. I had planned Ducabike Rearsets on my M821 and already have them in the box, but now I'm trading it in and upgrading to the 25th Anniversary and the rearsets don't fit so I'll just be drooling and polishing the new beauty till I can get in some rides.
