5) Windows into other worlds:
When you're ready to come back inside, there are more ways to keep yourself entertained: Museums, Movie Theaters, Art Exhibits are all ways to expand on your experiences.
Of course we'll have Winter Events at Freedom Road Harley!! So, stay tuned to our Events Page and/or Sign-Up for our Weekly E-Newsletter
Staying at home? We still have ways to ride - it's just through others in print or on screen! Reading books like Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, your Harley's The Enthusiast Magazine, and other motorcycle books & magazines allows us to escape through our mind's eye.
There's also television series, documentaries and movies that provide a nice break. I recommend Harley and the Davidsons, Why We Ride, and Wild Hogs. If we can't ride, then at least we can watch other people riding!
6) Bottom Line: Enjoy It!
So, how can you enjoy winter when it’s cold and dark out there? We’ve heard a lot in recent years about a Positive Mindset: use the inspiration from a million Pinterest photos of fuzzy socks and hot chocolate, embracing Winter is more of a feeling rather than a physical concept. Think of a warm, cozy atmosphere, and enjoying the good things in life with others.
You can either see the winter as a special time of year full of opportunities for enjoyment and fulfillment or as a limiting, cold time of year to dread. Certainly the former sounds much more appealing!! In fact, research has found that a positive wintertime mind-set is associated with improved well-being, including greater life satisfaction and more positive emotions.
