Motards + winter = suck - December 30, 2009, 10:36 AM

These bikes have no wind protection. You can't just tuck in behind the windshield. They also don't seem to get as warm and toasty from the engine as sportbikes. The combination of these two facts makes them way worse to ride in the winter. Way worse.

Also, it takes a loooong time to heat up singles. It sucks.

Anyway, for some reason I thought sm's would be better in the winter riding around town and this is proving to be false.

The more I ride them, the more I find they are only good for one thing.

Just like woman. Well the ones I've dealt with anyways. I'm sure there are some real catches out there.

Witold......wat chu talkin bout willis!!!!
Who tucks behind their sport bike windscreen!?! Sissy's! lol I'm upright holding on with one hand on bar at 80mph even at super low temps.
We don't need no stinking tucking.
Though sport bikes do offer a bit more wind protection. Every bit counts at 15 degrees.

Try taping up your rad a bit. Maybe just one piece to start with. And yes the wind hits you right in the chest.

You're kept warm by your sense of self-entitlement and the fact that you are a FLAMING homosexual.

This is from the guy who rode in jeans, a leather jacket with a t-shirt underneath, and leather gauntlet gloves on the Honey Pig night. It was what, 28 degrees that night?

The only thing I've noticed is that there is very little to hide behind. Otherwise, I pefer the riding position as I feel it allows me to react more quickly and gingerly to cold weather road conditions. I got a heated grip kit for Christmas so I'm gonna be even better off once that's installed.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

My boy have a 2001 DZR400 with a 2006 motor in it that needs some work...ive been toying with the idea of getting it from him to fix and ride then see if i like it and buying it for cheap....

If i rode id have a winter suit for sure...

Heaterd vests and grips would help a lot. You can probably mount a small windscreen pretty easily. I know you can get a screen for under $10 for the wr250
