Add me in-ridden to work every day for the past 12 years, Rain, Shine, Tropical Storms, Heavy Winds, 'Frigid' 55 degree Hawaiian winter mornings. Makes it an easier choice since I sold off my last cager 12 years ago, and feel wierd having the wife drop me off and pick me up. Sorry, no pics...
I just dont ride in, I ride all day and get paid.
No picture proof but I ride the Zuma to work almost every day. It was 3° on Thursday and after several kicks she fired up and away I went, insulated coveralls, ninja mask under my helmet and all. I do need to upgrade my winter gloves though. I admit it's only a 10 minute ride each way
2015 FZ09 (The Fuzz)
2004 Suzuki Hayabusa (Tango)
2003 Yamaha Zuma (no name...my everyday wheels)
Not bad for the wet side of the rain shadow.
Who else is riding to work?
I ride almost every day. I avoid rain since I carry a passenger in the mornings, plus california drivers can't seem to handle wet roads.
I also get paid time + $.50/mi to ride out to house calls a couple times a week.
You can't have everything. Where would you put it?
Uh, 30F now heading to upper 20's by quittin' time. Possible icy patches by then. Need to get groceries on way home. There IS salt on the road; corrosion you know. That rear tire really should be replaced. Uh...I'll try to think of more convincing excuses/ whining while at work.
I did ride for a bit Monday afternoon. That Penske 8900E works pretty good on bumpy dirty roads. Bike was much more stable and predictable.
