How many months of riding can you get @ your area.

I usually can get 8 months (April- November if lucky) in New England, with another in Florida ( 3 visits). I am sure that HawaiiBusa has us all beat?

I live in Georgia and I can ride pretty much year round except for when cold fronts come through in the middle of winter.

I'd say 8-9 months of serious regular riding Mar-Nov. Other than that its spotty. Lots of really rainy and windy days here in winter. Not too cold, but kinda miserable to ride for fun.

I never have to pack the bike in for the winter, but Nov-Mar is pretty sparse. Maybe once every two weeks?

12 months. Not all of them entirely enjoyable and frost-bite free, but 12 months, nonetheless.

Well, the price I pay for living in "God's country" is this - if the seasons hold, we can get in 6 months riding. Everything else is iffy. Can put on insulated gear and put on a few miles when its <50, but it ain't pretty (its only when you're desparate to ride - like last Friday night after reading the newest mags, etc.!!!

I ride year round (even in the snow, we don't get much) but the 'Busa about 8 months (April - November but I rode it into December last year and it came out again in March due to the mild winter.

At least most of us are starting the ridding season. I hope we all are? It was 90 here last week and Monday they are predicting possible snow. ShhiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiT!!

Only reason i don't ride the 'Busa in the winter is I don't fancy getting home from work and sending a couple of hours cleaning it in the dark.
The salt on the roads just makes bikes look poop.
