I have a saying here in Florida, it goes something like this, if it's too hot to wear gear, it's too hot to ride! But you know what, where still ridin!

I thought from prior post that most of you that lived in the cold ran all year long, from reading your post Iam finding that not to be so true.

We do ride all year. But ice and snow are...well...ice and snow. Can't do much about that.

I second BrowningBAR's comment. I do ride all year long. Temps are not the limiting factor, nor is rain. The prob we've been having here along the eastern seaboard is rain (lots of rain) with plummiting overnight temps. You wake up and there are ICE puddles everywhere.

As a matter of fact, I was driving to work yesterday. A construction truck (water tanker) had been leaking, leaving a trail of water on the road that had frozen, leaving a winding trail of ice a mile long. I kept thinking, "Man I'm glad I didn't ride today!"

Why are we still discussing this? No one needs to justify a decision not to ride motorcycles in icy conditions. The people who do ride in icy conditions are the ones who still haven't justified their behavior properly.
