Default What do you like best?

Bundling up for the cold OR fighting the heat? 72 is not always an option...

I love them both . . . nothing like that cool, crisp air in the Fall after battling a hot summer. Spring also feels great after a long, cold winter - funny how 50 degrees in the Spring feels sooooo much warmer than 50 degrees in the Fall.

Once I found the right clothes for me the cold isn't that bad. As far as the heat goes, I bought a mesh Hi vis jacket for the heat but I'm in western NY so when I say heat I mean like 85 ish. But i see people riding in shorts and tank tops, I think that's crazy but to each his (or hers) own.

heat any time. Just pull the liner out of the jacket, wear my summer gloves and away i go. I love pulling up next to a car on a hot day with a beautiful woman in a sun dress driving.

It's been a few decades since I fought the summer heat, but I can only remember one time that the heat was just too much. Overall, I love a 55-60 degree day the most.

I don't like the cold but I'll ride in it. People who don't ride think you're insane if you ride in the 40's. I layer up and I only feel it around the neck. Long answer but I prefer the heat.

That depends on what you call heat. Over 100 is no fun at all. I would rather ride in cold weather, with the right heated clothes you can stay warm, but in the heat, over 100 there is no way to stay cool, and the only breeze you get when riding is a HOT breeze.
