    I know it's not camping but it is riding. I am not sure I am up to winter camping.

    It has been good here all week,but I haven't been riding it to work. I leave the house at 5:15 am the last few weeks and it is deer season here as well . The deer is heavily populated here and on the move. When the hunters go to the woods the deer move to the road even more than they already do. I hit one a few years ago on my goldwing,no damage to wife and I or the bike ,but the deer didn't fair so well, it was laying in the road not moving.

    Re: 12/1/17 bike ride

    I think Maggie's done riding but I like getting out riding when the weather is decent. I have to look for excuses to get out and go somewhere like running errands. Not much time during the day for long rides, don't like riding after dark and try to avoid rush hours other wise riding becomes sitting.

    Dusty, I agree with others, that sure is a nice looking bike.
