still riding?

just curious how many of you are still riding versus how many are painfully waiting for the next riding season.

For all the negatives with living in Southern California, the weather is some consolation. Clear skies and about 72 degrees. I'm out riding now...just stopped for lunch. I truly feel for all who are locked down until spring...that sucks!

Really depends on the weather. Got 12+ inches of snow over the past weekend but was riding in the low 60s just a week or so ago.

Commuting daily in Houston, Texas. It was 50 and raining on way home. Took two hours to get home, really suck, but on bike I can take HOV for free. Saved some time. (:

Houston

I remember those rainy days in Houston. From 1975,1987 I went thru 4 Honda's. 3-250 dual sports
and one 500 dual sport. I was in Galveston last summer and IF YOU RIDE in Houston on a
motorcycle now you have big,big, & big kahuna .

I rode briefly a week and a half ago, yet it's just been too cold and rainy. This time of year for us, it's either mildly warm and rainy, or very cold and clear. So my pms will linger for a couple of more months at least.

With this warm weather, I have been able to ride at least 1 day a week. This week I will get 2 days in. I usually ride when the weather is above 35 deg and no moisture on the road (especially ice).
