I guess for the motorcycle enthusiast, that phrase could be debatable. Let’s face it, winter has begun her cool descent over Ohio. The days of suntans and windblown hair is coming to a close. Soon, white glistening snowflakes will cover the ground and long sunny days are getting shorter and shorter. So, we winterize our iron horses, connect the battery tenders and start looking forward to an early spring.
But don’t lose heart! We do not have to feel trapped inside. Once you have finished your basic winter maintenance, why not consider adding on some modifications. Winter is the perfect time to schedule a custom paint job and add additional accessories. Perhaps you want to add some ink of your own. Let Studio What? in Berlin design your custom tattoo. There are several indoor activities to fight the winter blues. Looking ahead, the Cleveland Motorcycle Show and Progressive International Motorcycle Show will be coming to the Cleveland I-X Center on Jan 25. Come see us there in the Thunder Roads Ohio booth.

The Rubik’s Cube is still a very popular puzzle toy. The fact is that it’s even more popular than in the 80’s.
