Well you have four months to the wait for the parts.. That when ordered... the parts guy will say " Be here on a Tuesday " ;) and a additional 30 days to work on it.. You'll be good as new for the spring.:thumb:
Come on now. What about the Blue Mountains? ;) ---I guess no trials or enduro up there then.
I picked potatoes out there in the wintertime (Narrandera, NSW) and even picked a few navels. It's not exactly paradise that time of year. Then again, the climate may be different down there than where you're from. Where are you from?
I guess the guys like me that ride year round don't pipe up around here during these conversations, because I only see complaints. I guess 'cuz it's colder north of Nebraska. ;)
I ride 12 mo./yr, but winters aren't too bad here. Lots of snow, which makes it better. More snow than tracks anyway.
I'll tell you what sucks about riding all year around. You can't give your bike the yearly "once over " because every weekend it usualy pretty nice to ride :confused: I had my pick I would break the bike down when it's 105 degrees out with no cloud cover and has not rained it about 2 months. Winter time around here is prime riding season. I can dress up for 20 degress, but its harder to dress for the heat.
