    Hi everyone.

    It was good summer, but my riding is over for this year. All 16 210 km was fun and pleasure. But i have a litle thing to take care....my new bike. It is IZ 56, year 1960.

    That means ill be playing a Mafia Wars Social Games - Zynga in facebook and taking care of IZ.

    Probably i but up some pictures in my photos - how it looks in some stages of work.

    In november i go to EICMA 2009 in Milano, mayby i see a new viffer there.



    :thumbsup: And how about your winter plans?

    Enjoy the Winter project.
    For me the weather is just getting into good temps for riding. The summer of 35C is way too hot for long rides. This month it wll be down to 25C. Perfect.

    Winter shut down tips anyone?

    OK - outside its now snowing hard here in the Alps and for the first time this winter its settling. The VFR is now tucked up in the garage for winter. So apart from keeping the bike on a battery tender, what should I do to make sure it fires up next Spring?

    Yeesh! End of September brings me to my favourite time of year to ride. Nothing like a fall ride with red & golden leaves.

    Nessus, when does your riding season begin?

    Wow...you guys get about 2 - 3 months less riding per year than where I live. I shouldn't complain about our winters, I suppose.

    I suppose that means that Finnish motorcycle riders must be a particularly enthusiastic bunch, determined to soak up every riding day that's available!
