I'll ride until the first major snowfall. Living in the snowbelt, as soon as the snow flies they dump a ton of salt and sand on the roads. Not only does it make every curve dangerous, it's rough on the bike.

Once it gets consistently in the 30's I give up. Try to get one day that is warm enough to wash the bike and get it filled with fuel and put it to bed until Spring. That, unfortunately is about 3 weeks away.. BUT, the good news is Spring is only 4 1/2 month away.

My bike has been in hibernation mode for a couple weeks now. There are a few die hards still out in the afternoons but for my tastes it just isn't worth it. I wish our spring came as early as yours Two Wheel, we've got usually well into April before the riding season starts around here, what with the salt and sand on the roads left over from the snows & ice. A solid six months of winter weather makes you appreciate the riding when it does come though.;)

Lately, it seems that way around here also. By the time everything clears and roads are fixed it's usually the beginning of April. But one can still dream for an early spring....
