It's important for you to check the weather prior to a motorcycle ride in the winter. This can help you avoid frost in the morning, fog, rain, snow, ice and high winds that accompany the winter season along the Northeast. You don't want to get stuck in inclement weather when on a motorcycle.

Make sure you have the right gear for a ride in the winter. You don't want to get stuck on the road if the temperatures suddenly drop. Be sure you have an all-weather jacket that keeps you warm. Also, be sure to have gloves, long underwear and boots.

Prepare your motorcycle for the winter by cleaning it thoroughly and spraying it with an anti-corrosion spray. Riding in the winter can be brutal for your bike, so be sure it is ready to take a pounding from the weather.

You need to clean your helmet's visor daily if you like to ride in the winter. Misting is a common issue for motorcyclists in the winter. Spray the visor daily or wipe it down to remove the mist.

Don't be afraid to avoid riding in the winter. If the road conditions or forecast isn't favorable, there's no reason to risk injury or death for a motorcycle ride.
