And done...

It seems early, really early, for me to be putting the bike away. In truth, it is. I could conceivably get another month out of the season, possibly more, but I'd be really risking it. If we did happen to get a big snowfall that stuck around, I wouldn't have a way to get my bike to storage. Considering my storage area is now about 30 minutes away through back roads, riding there once the snow sticks is out of the question.

Last stop of the season.

A friend and fellow riding buddy was nice enough to offer me winter parking if I couldn't find anything better. So now she is squirreled away in a shed sharing lots of space with a Harley dresser.

Once parked, it was time for a comparison.

Pulled out of storage March 4th, 2011.
Stored November 26th, 2011.

So yeah, crappy season over all. 3254 km for this riding season, very disappointing.. I was really hoping to roll fifty thousand this summer, but I guess I'll have to wait until after winter is done with us again.

And that's it, it's a wrap. She's covered, stored and the battery is out. It was hard to put her away, but it's nice to have somewhere for her to sleep.
