Hey every one. I have read this thread it is great. I live in Vermont it is cold as hell. and ice and snow. had two months of optimum riding whether this last year. It has been one long winter this year. I do know how the heat is, like riding in a sauna. but when you have eight months of bad whether two short months of riding between rain storms. then winter returns. this environment is not for the motorcycle enthusiast. it seems for since 2000 ish we could start riding at march to April. and ride til December. but it is like arctic vile now days. I hear Arizona great. I find that area calling me. I could ride to the pacific coast highway.

The temp topped out at 77 and I just got back from my hour ride.....Florida...hard to beat.....not too many curves, well, unless you go to the beaches....and they abound there.

It was in the upper 50s down here this morning for the ride in, should be 80 for the ride home. No fog for a change.

Nice again this morning, fog free. Rain tomorrow and turning cooler for a few days it seems. Great riding weather here for a while looking at the March forecast.

Next month for us down here is 80's and 70's. When the sun aint shining. It's raining.

Sigh. Gotta finish the shade port.

Never too hot to ride for this old coot. I usually grin when test rides are done in primo up north weather conditions < cool air on air cooled motor >

No wonder they run primo. Run a long time. Try WOT on a 120 F day. On a regular basis.
The guys in AZ and Nev know what I mean.
