I'm from Worcester, MA. The cold sucks, and I hate riding in it. That's why I'm considering purchasing an '05 ST4s.Duc Huntin said:I live up in New England and I never put my bike away for the winter. While I don't ride if there's snow on the ground, I've taken some long freeway rides when it's 22 degrees out and it's not an issue with the right clothes. Bike runs and starts extremely well even in the coldest weather.
