Poll: Are You a Fair Weather Rider?

Does a little rain shower dampen your plans?

Not everyone is blessed with the good fortune of having year round mild temperatures that are conducive to riding. Others simply do not have a choice and are forced to ride their motorcycle in rain, cold and snow. Which category would you put yourself in?

    I had a lady pull out in front of me when it was raining and 40 degrees. Getting field stripped on the ground in a cold rain sucks. Plus a couple of ice avoidance incidents has made me less likely to ride in a cold rain or when there is a chance of icing.

    Rode year-round in the mid-west for 10 years when young; CB750 most of the year, SL100 when snow/ice on the streets. Wife had our only car. Finally got a second car in 1975 and the only times I've ridden in the snow since then is when caught out in the mountains. Rain is no problem; got rained on 2 out of every 3 days on my month-long solo camping ride to Alaska and drying the tent was more hassle than 40 degree rain.
