Year round rider ....

Hi Catenaccio,

First of all, thank you for your welcome message.

In answer to your question, "yes" I am an all year rider. I use my bike predominantly for commuting and get to ride it out for fun at the weekends. The summers here in Arizona (as I am sure you are aware) can be brutal (112+ degrees F), but using a fully vented jacket and helmet goes a long way to make the high summer manageable.

We don't really get that much of a Winter here and I don't usually take the bike out in the wet. Mainly because of all the oil deposits on the road and not the rain itself. Although I have done my fair share of wet riding, coming from the UK.

Best Regards
