Flathead, you are right about the rain. I go to school in Platteville and all we have got so far is rain. But at home (which is where my bike is) there is snow, and along with snow comes the salt on the roads. So even if it is a nice day, I would hate to get that in all the nooks and crannies of my bike.

That and I just plain hate being cold

Ummm... One of my office mates had 8 feet in 30 hours last year, I live 20 miles south west of him though (thankfully), I only got about a foot that day
