Winter is approaching?

Not much new around here. Been working mostly 6 days a week so not much riding activity. Have tried to ride one of the bikes each weekend as time allows. We took a ride to Belgrade MT. on Labor Day with the intention of attending an Airhead Tech Day, but rode into torrential rain coming into Bozeman. We had a motel reservation so checked in and never got over to the Tech Day location. The following day brought more unsettled weather so we headed back to Billings. Originally planned on a trip through Yellowstone Park but the weather did not agree with that plan. Some areas in and around the Park had snow.
Took a 200 mile sidehack ride around Yellowstone / Big Horn Counties a couple weeks back.

Winter is drawing nearer so I anticipate my work will end in the next 2 - 3 weeks. We'll  pack up and head for Arizona when work slows / weather deteriorates. The Montana weather has been surprisingly warm this Fall, still having 60 - 70 degree temperatures. That will come to a screeching halt before too long.

 We have 3 or 4 motorcycle trips planned as usual for this Winter.
My main Winter focus is a long list of RV repairs and upgrades which are due. Also need to diagnose & repair the old Goldwing as it has been "dead" for the past few months.

Looks like great riding weather. In the last photo, is that tank bag as huge as it looks? It almost looks "top box" sized.

Hey Richard, good to hear from you!
The tank bag is actually a smaller, non-expandable one...the photo angle makes it look bigger. It is a cheapo bag I bought over 20 years ago but has outlasted some "quality" bags I've owned. I have two other bags which are larger. One, I mount to the rear fender rack on the bike.
