Snow has started to fall in and around Fairbanks, a nice sheet of ice has formed on the roads, and for the first time since I've started riding I've had to put my bike up for the winter. Or at least until I can get studded knobbies...

She's been sitting since late september, with the temps getting into the negative teens overnight the last couple weeks, thoroughly cold soaked. Went out to change the oil for winter and run some stabil through her, and she started right up like nothing. Dang I love this tough old girl...

If anyone is interested in a set of stock X wheels, let me know if you're interested. I'm pretty well decided on swapping back to dirt wheels come spring, as well as getting a second bike.
