I ride year round, but on the older Yamahas that get rusty. I pick my days.
The mint XS1100, the Trophy and the SV1000 get the winter months off. The brine mix on the roads is 23.3% salt.
I ride on my Island, Vancouver Island, and a bit South of Vancouver BC.

I ride all winter, usually around 5 months of winter here. Average winter temp isn't that bad (-10c) , studded tires work wonders. It's where I live, might as well make the most of it.

Yesterday was the coldest I've ridden in - 32*F (0*C). It wasn't bad. Today felt worse and it was 36*F (2*C).

Usually, below 40*F, I don't ride, but I'm enjoying her too much.

"Most people just get swept along with life, they don't work for what they want. Think of every person you know who spends all their leisure time watching TV or getting drunk. These people don't know they're living 'till they're on their death bed."

In CenTX riding season is nearly year-round but you have to be pretty hardcore to ride in the afternoons during July and August when it's >100F out. OTOH this is primo riding season here. I'll be riding all winter but I limit the length when it's under 50F the whole time just because I don't have cold weather gear and prolonged 40s F riding with perforated leather jacket and gloves alone gets pretty frosty for me, but fortunately this is only a couple of days a year. Average December highs here are 63F. That's perfect riding weather.
