I choose "I live in Paradise". I really live in Las Vegas but that's close enough.

You don't know "Paradise" till you've lived in the Ozarks. The roads here rival any in the world for motorcycles (and Corvetts).

I live in Northwest Ohio, and try to get out at least once per week, weather permitting. If I can't due to weather, then I'll pull it out of garage and let it idle for 15-20 minutes at least weekly.

I ride year round basically as long as it isn't raining. I've never ridden yet in rain. But I have ridden in cold down to 25degF. That's the high desert for you.

Well, rode to work Thursday & friday here in Omaha... 22 miles round trip, 4 miles at 60+.
It was nicer Thursday morn- around 50 degrees.
Today... colder but only noticed it in my hands w/ non-cycling HD leather gloves, & under my chin.

Still getting used to motorcycling again so am being cautious on turns, manhole covers & anywhere NEAR drivers blindspots. We've had no snow yest so the roads are clear of sand. I need to get some safe experience on sand & dirt.

Ordered 2 books for myself for my Christmas stocking:
Amazon.com items:
1 Clymer's manual- Kawasaki: Ex500, Gpz500s a... $23.43 1 $23.43
1 Sport Riding Techniques: H... $16.47 1 $16.47 Bart
