Ugh!!!! the worst accessory I've had to buy

Recommended Posts

I love living in the murder mitten but it has forced me to buy the worst accessory.....a Battery Tender Jr. nothing against the brand or anything just means my riding season is over due to weather and cold.

I feel your pain. Living in the mitten is brutal for 6 months. Hooked mine up to the dreadful Tender Jr this week as well.

Hey!! The mitten state is warm and fuzzy... I just put my batteries inside... these winters give us a chance  to upgrade without taking away downtime during riding months...

But I just finished my upgrades... this fall has been terrible. From summer to winter again. 
Oh well, I ha e to have my 3rd surgery on my collar bone anyway so there wouldn’t be any riding for a while as it is.

CAR-T therapy filled early September and well into October.  I just got cleared to drive last week, need a better immune system before doing anything social.  Probably late December before I can ride.  There's a traditional trip to Tortilla Flats January 1st...

Stay strong and you will be riding in no time! 
Since it’s supposed to be a balmy 40 tomorrow I may go for a quick ride and see how the new and improved forks feel. Can’t pass up such a beautiful day.

Went for a very short ride yesterday because it was freezing! Tires were so slick I couldn’t push the new forks at all. It is now officially over till spring as it is supposed to pile up 6-8”’s of this crap today.

Another Mitten guy (in the Thumb) lamenting the rapidly approaching winter storm. It's no fun riding in the snow.

This summer I bought a toy hauler and will be taking both my BMW and FZ-07 on some camping trips down South and out West. I'm retired so I can go for extended trips. Looking forward to seeing how much I like living in a camper for extended periods. No need to winterize my bikes this year.

This is more like it. Sitting in 85 degree weather in Belize. Just what the doctor ordered. Going to rent a bike Monday and head of into the mountains for a daylong ride.
