When winter arrives in New England, it can be a depressing time for many people. After the holiday season passes, the cold temperatures and darker commutes home until late March can be tough. Don’t get us wrong, freshly fallen snow can be mesmerizing, but riders have a distaste for winter for another reason: Their motorcycles go into storage. If you’re already missing your bike, what can you do to ease the separation anxiety?
We offer 4 winter activities to try instead.
Sledding or Snowtubing
There is no feeling quite like riding a motorcycle on a warm day, but sledding down a steep hill can be another exhilarating adventure. Maybe you haven’t broken out the sled or snow tube since you were a kid; winter is your opportunity to relive those old memories and have fun while off your bike.
Skiing or Snowboarding
Riding a motorcycle requires more skill than driving a car, much like skiing or snowboarding is more complex than walking. If you like a challenge, learn one of these two sports this winter! Skiing is easier for most people to learn, so you could pick it up early in the season. Snowboarding for the first time can be more difficult, but daredevils will get a kick out of learning some of the cool moves they see watching the X Games.
