We’re entering the period of moto-hibernation, when, with a wag of her finger, Mother Nature says to many motorcyclists to put away their toys until Spring. And just when we most need a distraction to keep cabin fever at bay MotoGP, WSBK and pretty much all forms of motorcycle racing competed in their season finales. Seems that if someone were to begin some kind of winter racing series it’d be successful simply from a lack of competition.

So what’s a poor motorcyclist to do? Watch hockey, basketball or some other stick-and-ball sport? I’ve tried but they fail to capture my attention the way 200+ horsepower motorcycles swapping fairing paint at ridiculous lean angles do. So here are some mostly moto-specific activities with which to keep yourself entertained until motorcycle racing returns in 2016.

    Tom, us Aussies sympathise – honest we do! We don’t hibernate in winter nor suffer cabin fever as our winters are mild. But if you and your readers can organise a trip this winter to Australia and New Zealand, it’ll be summer over here. You’re all welcome.

    What the hell is that #1 thing? Is it… a wheelie machine?..
    I bet Duke can use it for daily commuting. One wheel is all one needs.

    2. Prepare To Go Racing Next Year … at speeds that are generally not life-threatening.

    Is it my imagination, or does that look like the type of dust cloud caused when someone hits the kitty litter? (see the last two bikes)

    I plan on watching Roller Derby. I really dig this concept of an enforcer helping his country man… I mean team mate win.

    Come to India, we are going on a Rajasthan tour this winter. Just need a few more people to make it happen. Here’ s a link to our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Built2Ride-Royal-Enfield-153276814731779/?ref=hl
