I ride all year round. So far my coldest morning here in DE was about 17F (if I recall correctly). The only weather I will not ride in is snow, sleet or hail. Otherwise I'm riding
Good man!!! I too, will ride in whatever weather or cold there may be. The only exception, is that I won't ever ride in the snow again. EVER.

I prefer cooler weather, 100F is a bit warm right now. Look forward to March in Perth for the best.

Today was probably one of the nicest mornings I have had in quite some time. The road was a little damp still, but at 45f it was awesome... especially compared to the 30f+/- I've been dealing with. I even made sure I got up early so I could take advantage of it. Took some nice back roads and my normal 25 min. ride took about 45. (Practiced up shifting without using the clutch, a lot easier than I had anticipated). So far a great morning and with an expected 60f when I get off work... today is gonna be awesome... thanks to my 12r.

Well Mine is tax'd all year.
But like others too cold , too wet . it stays home

not to long ago the rain washed the road from salt and the sun cam out was about 7'C but was a nice ride out.

Just waiting till the salt is gone and I'm out there.

dont like using it for work when its dark at 5am as I ride across the chase and soooo many deer about at that time in the morning.

it would be nice if temp was in the 20's Deg C
