ill ride when its nice out. but if i had cold weather, heated stuff, i wouldn't mind riding in the winter. same with rain, i would ride in it if i had the proper gear to do so. but since i have the gear to ride in nice weather, that's when i ride.

For fun only. I have the pleasure of sitting my butt on heated or cooled leather in a climate controlled environment on my way to and from work.

I have a car, had to use it before I got my new bike. Now It collects dust, snow, rain, what ever the hell the weather is. I will ride it until the wheels fall off. I didn't get it to look at it! LOL

Born and raised around bikes. It was mine and dads thing, now that he is gone, I find myself closer to him when I ride! So I would ride all day and night if I could.

See you out there!

Fair weather!

For 3 reasons: 1. I don't want to lose the joy of riding 2. I have a car 3. I have a kid

My bike truly is a leisure mode of transportation, not a necessity. I want it to stay that way and riding when it's super windy or raining just isn't enjoyable to me.

All weather baby! Come June, it will have been 3 years of 2 wheels.

I'd say it's cause I'm hardcore or some crap, but if I ever get the rest of my identity back and enough money for a car... I imagine there will be days where I just don't feel like creatively packing my bike to get something mundane accomplished. Only with the bike do I get random free Starbucks tho...

Hot or cold I ride, but if it is raining I will drive the truck. Riding in the rain doesn't bother me. It is the idiots that drive that scare the hell out of me. Everytime I have been riding in the rain and get hung up at a red light some asshole comes sliding to a stop behind me. Have actually had one care sliding in behind me and when it came to a stop the bumper actually tapped my back tire. For those of you that only have your bike for primary transportation, be safe and stay clear of the the four wheeled F***ers.

Not that I endorse this type of riding here in Vegas, but for the reason mentioned above, about the vehicles sliding to a stop, I filter right up to the front of the intersection during a red light. Plus, this way, I stay ahead of the wash, giving me better visibility.

You do what you got to do.

That is a good idea, but if you are first to the light you are at the mercy of everyone behind you. I have alot of respect for those with only a bike for primary. Only time I use my truck is when it rains, otherwise the wife has it and I ride to work everyday and as much as I can on weekends. Speaking of weekends, since the wife goes out of town next weekend I have 3 full days and nights to be on the road.
