Default Re: Winter Riding

Yes if a bike is good part of the time it is probably good all of the time that transportation is worth doing. I don't drive my car in a thunder storm or dust storm or blizzard. Those are the extremes I think I want to avoid. Like I said I have ridden in below freezing temperatures and up to 122 degrees. You just need to use your intelligence and body to monitor things and be safe. Drinking water is important in either extreme as dehydration will hurt you bad and quickly if hot or cold. Who else was crazy enough to ride in Arizona when we hit 122 degrees back in 1990? I also commuted every other day to Casa Grande from Mesa about 90 miles round trip in the summer heats more like 115, back in mid 1980's. Extremes are doable if you want but certainly not necessary.
