There is no such thing as "too hot to ride" as I live in Las Vegas and have ridden with full gear in 115 plus degrees. Yes, the sun is so powerful that you need a dark tinted visor to keep your face from scorching, and you can litterally feel your pants scorch as well sitting at a red light. You also sweat like a pig, but I still ride with full gear. Samething as there is no such thing as "too cold to ride" as you can always bundle up.Bryan, I voted for \\"seasonal\\" and \\"year-round\\" categories. :thumbup:
What constitutes a \\"season\\" is always a topic of debate at the BMW MOA forum each year. Their mileage contest runs April 15 to Oct 15. While those who live in the north are happy with this, those of us who live in the deep south and southwest end up with somewhat less than a 6 months' contest. Here in Houston it's too hot to ride in July and Aug, even well into Sept.
But who sais that someone who lives in the sunbelt has to be grouped into the year round category. You either ride year round or you don't.
If your seasonal, you should be able to choose when to start your riding season, as long as the start and end are in consecutive months for the number of months that is ever decided. I think 6 months would be a good number for the seasonal riders, 1/2 of what the year round riders would be. So one seasonal rider may start at the beginning of March, and another may start their season at the beggininng of May. But they would both log six consecutive months.
So in Agmom's case, you could start your seasonal riding season on Jan 1 and log thru June, then you're done.
