For some of you, over the past 11 years years I have announced when I am pulling the motorcycle battery out of my motorcycle and then would winterize it for the upcoming winter.  I traditionally do this as late as possible in the season, and will be making my mind up Tuesday October 13, 2009.... there isn't much I see in the next 7-10 days to get our temperatures much above 55 degrees. (I am a wimp.. about 45 is the coldest I like to comfortably ride!)  LOL

What are your thoughts on fall (even winter-like) conditions?  Are you excited for it?  Not?
