    snow doesn't stay long this time of year. Last year we got 10 inches October 29. Made hunting season really wet. Took off for Florida Dec. 15 for the winter. The old body works better when it is warm. Went for wild boars twice and managed to get one each time.. No riding down there because too many crazies out on the road. They like to kill people. Have good sledding season.

    Hi Earthling,
    I live down here in the bottom part of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. I've ridden around Lake Superior 3 times. The Ontario side of the Lake is beautiful. Roads are great and prop;e are friendly. My wife and I spend most of our time riding around the Upper Peninsula, as well as Wisconsin, and Minnesota. Thanks for getting back about the batteries. In my 56 years of riding motorcycles, I've been through all types. I do carry an antigravity emergency starting battery which works great plus it is small and packs easily.
    Good riding to you. I just put mine away as we just got our first snow of the season.
