I consider myself a all weather rider I have several vehicles to drive but my preferred means of transport is on my motorcycle. It does not bother me when it is cold or that one day a year it rains here.

I might chane my mind if I lived some where when there is 3 foot of snow on
the ground

but here in Vegas I like riding all year round

I too ride year round as my motorcycle is the only transportation I own. The 2 or 3 days a year it rains means rainsuit riding. You can dress warm for cold it's a little harder to dress cool for the 115 degree summers, but you do what ya gotta do.

Welp considering my bike is my main mode of trans, i have to ride in whatever comes at me...

But If I have the choice, I do not ride chance it and ride in /rain/snow..If I had a reliable second vehicle that would probably change. And it isnt so much worrying about me crashing. I can handle my self.. Its the idiotic, fucking unbelievable assholes we have behind the wheels here. Rain? snow? It dont matter, everyone instantly becomes brainless, 10mph operating non spacing death on wheels armada.

I ride whenever convenient. Most of the time for me, riding the bike is too much of an inconvenience as opposed to driving.

edit: to address the specific question... I do ride in all conditions.
