I have much respect for others that their bike is their main transportation. It's a much different lifestyle!
TRU DAT! I ride because I have to and when I want to and it's always a pleasure.....

Anywhere between 70-118 degrees is good for me. 2-wheelers are supposed to be fun. Freezing with rain are dangerous conditions for a CAR, to say nothing about a 2-wheeler with no cage, seatbelt or airbags... not fun! LV residents are lucky to have excellent weather year-round and hardly any rain or snow, but to me this is a safety issue.

Ride safe.

I'll watch out for you if you pass me in the rain in my sedan (with the radio, wipers and heated seats on).

Yes, we are blessed with year round weather. But what's wrong with 65 degrees? Your riding range is from 70-118? Riding in 110 plus degree heat becomes a safety issue before 50 or 60 degrees. I still ride in the heat, even 110 plus but I make sure my rides are short and drink plenty of fluids before and after my ride regardless if I'm thirsty or not.

Used to be all weather when my R6 was my only vehicle
did that for 4 years
coldest day was about 28 degrees and hottest over 100

Now a days I have several vehicles and commute to work according to the weather/seasons

Mainly from end of March thru mid Oct commute on my bike when temps start dropping into the 50's I commute in my car or truck.

Prepping to ride in cold or wet weather takes much longer for me with the extra thermals, turtleneck and balcava and rain gear, then feeling big and restricted by all that extra stuff. these days for me its more of a convineince to drive rather than ride on cold or wet days



Plus I dont think that Power Race or Power One tires do to good in rain


I Will and have ridden for pleasure any day regardless of weather

My 'comfortable' riding range is about 50 - 105

Any colder than 50 means I have to bundle up too much, and hotter than 105 means its starting to get too hot for my gear, which means its getting too hot too ride.

So that means I dont ride a whole lot in december - january and then july - august. But the other 8 months are great.

The only time I ride in bad weather is if it happens during a ride otherwise I try to avoid it. The best bad weather ride for me was in panguich when it was raining.

Now this is a more of a realistic riding range that probably most people can relate to. But a clear cold day in the 40's & even in the 30's with my heated vest, I'm nice and warm.
