I am liking at heated gear but not sure how I feel about being wired to my bike...so what are some of your winter riding tips?

Move to Alaska for your winters, and see how the Pro's do it.

I almost got on my loop Thursday BUT had to take the pup for the 3 year rabies! Already made the appointment then noticed that Thurs was the day after one day of no rain. Not freezing on top of mt. ham. I'm thinking, 'alright, I can do the loop as the road will be fairly dry.' But the vet thing. Better to take him on a dry day has he hates crated in the van to go anywhere. (translation: this pup is the first I've had that fights going anywhere. Not the crate as he has two inside the house. Just hates whatever. lol)

Well Bummer... My Australian Collie loves everything...

Smartest, most well behaved, most eager to please, and great looking dog I've seen...Can't say enough about him...

Oh one more thing... This dog (the Australian Collie) is such a Chic Magnet...

that similar to border collie? If so you get the nice high energy factor. Malinois don't generate a chic factor. Even the wife is scared of them but she is also scared of GSD's. Oddly, they all love her. Regular people probably won't go for the malinois. Shutzhund trainers don't like them, either. Ring guys like them but I have no ring clubs close. So, I do it all myself which we all like. lol

Right now you're talkin riding in the most dangerous place (public road) in sketchy conditions, on a seriously touchy bike.

So wild guess... Your not ready for it.
there is no history in dirt mud or sand for a street bike. I've owned dirt bike in the past and I've got plenty of experience in that as well.

come November i find my self the only motorcyclist on the interstate on the kc area. As long as the roads are dry.
