UB the world is made up of two kinds of dogs; outdoor and indoor and a dog is happiest when he know just what he is. In my case I know I'm an indoor dog.

Drew, you're the man for holding out this long. A couple of months ago I started to focus more on sealing up the cabin, and getting the heaters working. There's no way I'm tough enough to run topless in this weather.

I put my hardtop on sometime in October for the :princess: (and myself) on the Spooky Night Run. I must be getting old, not too interested in getting snowed on without a hard top/hard doors/heat (even if marginal) these days...

I put mine on friday before Thanksgiving, but only because that's the first I could find.

Really, my commute to work isn't that bad, but trying to drive up to the mountains is a different story.

No hard top for me! I still have my pakistan top on though. I am going to paint my hard top this winter, so it won't be going on at all. I still haven't tried my new bimini top from Ehsan yet either, so maybe I'll pop that sucker on for the snow run.

I put my hardtop on in the fall. Five years ago. Took it off shortly thereafter and it has lived on sawhorses since.

wimp.
