Use it all year for safer riding

My advice to aid the skills of becoming a better rider would be to ride all year round and not to mothball the machine as soon as the nights begin to close in.

With the exception of icy roads riding during the winter hones your skills and builds up your confidence to cope during changeable and unexpected weather conditions. Riding throughout the year rather than just during the summer months could be the reason why so many accidents occur during the spring season because too many riders have lost there edge from a long winter break!

Use it, don't mothball it!
