Here in Michigan, we don't let a little snow stop us.
I used to have a co-worker who rode his motorcycle to work year-round. Not on those heavy snow days, but a little dusting never stopped him from riding.

I'm not that hard-core. For me, once it gets down into the mid 50's, I'm pretty much done riding. But it's not uncommon here in Michigan to see motorcycles out on dry, winter days when the temps are below freezing.

The last snow fall has melted here but roads are a mess with sand, gravel and salt. Waiting for a good hard rain to clean things up. Of course there will probably be a few snow falls to go before it's over.

It's getting close, I can smell it! Like @Ramie , the roads are clear and dry here, but the sand and salt left behind is keeping me from riding yet. A good rainfall or 2 will take care of that.

My part of Virginia was chilly this morning, but will be in the upper 50's this evening. It's going to be a great week!

The Ground Hog was pretty much dead on this year, and then some. A foot of snow has melted, and then there is another foot to go. Then we need a couple of heavy rain storms as mentioned before. If I can be back in the saddle by early April I'll be happy, but April has been known to be rainy in the NE. LOL. Why do I live here again?

Intellicast is forecasting 5-8" next Sunday here in Rexford, NY. Hope they're way off and it's all rain. I've already had the ACE out of the shed during that warm spell in February, and had to tuck her back in. Not happy being teased like that.
