I've got a balmy -14D on the thermometer and -26 with the windchill currently. You guys living in the south have it made riding your pigs. I tried riding mine a mile to the gas station last week and froze my arse off. You suck!!

Well, I was born in the South (Virginia),, but now living in Southern Cali (two totally different kinds of south). Kinda hard to believe that I work for a ski resort, and Ive put about 100+ miles on my pig the last two days, just riding from the house, awesome singletrack and desert trails, even exploring a few fire roads along the way. Probably upper 60's yesterday, and about mid 70's today when I left the house. Its nice when you can ride in early February and not have to wear anything under your jersey.

fog, cold, rainy typical Pacific NW... ride only if your a real badass or think you are or if you simply like to get cold and wet. Woods riding is ok.

SE Texas has been inundated for the last two months. I don't mind riding in the rain, but can't handle both cold and rain.

Ride on fellas, its good to here your out and about on your bikes. We should have the snowmobiles out here but theres only 3" of snow on the ground. Another 15 years of global warming and I'll be out riding this time of year too.

Pay back is in the summer when it's comfortable up here, and hot as hell down there. :censored:

In St. George Utah, been riding all winter, but the past few weeks have been great...mid 60's, but I agree, Northerners will be comfortable in August when it is 112 here.

Like NavyNuke says. We get up really early to ride in the summer. We are home by 8-9 AM. The big differance being that we still can ride year round if we choose to ride that early. My Jeep also sits alot during the summer and is a nice choice this time of year. We can also go 1-2 hours and ride in the cool mountains.

I agree, that arizona heat can be a killer. I was picking up cars in phoenix for the first time two summers ago. I thought I was gonna fall over on the blacktop and lay there and cook.
