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'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?

In Melbourne, Australia about 9mths with 3 of them being t-shirt weather. I do plan one day to move 1000 miles up north to the Gold Coast where i'ts 12mths all t-shirt and not too much rain and a few miles inland is subtropical rainforest full of twisties with a coast ride of pure surf beach.

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 shit.
