Up here the riding season is short, too short. I bought my bike last November and put on about 100 rather chilly miles before I had to park it. Last winter felt very long and with all the snow it made riding season feel even further away. I took it out on a couple of days in March when it was above freezing and the roads were dry, but again, not a lot of fun. It wasn't until May until we started having a few days in the mid teens Celsius (around 55 - 60 F). The weather finally warmed up in June and since then I've been riding every day that it isn't raining (my truck is feeling very neglected, I'm sure). Got almost 6000 miles on her so far this season. June, July, August, and most of September are prime riding months here. I expect I'll be parking it again in October, maybe into November if the weather holds.
So, to answer your question, overall, the season is too short and now that I've had the summer to ride and really get used to my bike and get back into riding I know this winter is going to be even longer. If I were younger I'd consider moving to a warmer clime...lol.
