Yep totally agree, I have a couple of police motorcycle mates, and they hate it in spring, they have to deal with a lot more bike accidents as soon as the weather warms up. And all the Rossi and pedrosa wannabees come out of hibernation.
I donâ€™t know about anyone else but if I havenâ€™t ridden my bike for a couple of weeks usually due to work commitments rather than the weather, I feel really rusty and ride very cautiously for a while until I feel ok, its a bit like having a sixth sense that just needs warming up.
So if your off the road for 6 months it must take ages to get back into the rythem, and I drive for a living!
I also didnâ€™t pass my car test until I was 22 (1982), but I passed my bike test in 1978,I rode 30 miles to work every day in deep snow, and ***** weather, on everything from a garrelli tiger cross (50cc) to a CB750. Because I had to, but it was good experience for later life, and I went on to ride motocross, and cbr600 superstox.
But now I ride for pleasure not for pain, I ride because I choose to, if you want every ride to be a endurance test, thatâ€™s fine, also if you want to go out and enjoy the scenery, and not have to concentrate like mad on the road conditions, thatâ€™s fine as well.
We are all have different views, thatâ€™s what makes biking fun.
