Flint here, just got an '82 920 barn find on the road. Looking forward to heading up north on it soon.

Got some sage advice from an old biker long ago. "Is your bike still running OK?" "Yeah but....." "Pull your helmet strap tighter so you can't hear it"

Well, starting to cool off in Grand Rapids. I figured it had to happen eventually.

I'm curious, how late into the year do ya'll ride? Also, do you pull your bike insurance during the winter, or leave it on? My State Farm agent tells me I'll have to pay a bunch of penalties if I pull it. Something about how the policies are 6-month policies, and you can't cancel early.

Time to look for different insurance. I have a one year policy through Markel out of Wisconsin that I cancel at the end of the riding season. They send me a prorated refund for the insurance I didn't use, no penalties!
