I'm gearing up, I try to hit it hard during the color change in the midwest. Some of the best riding in my opinion, no bugs either after the first hard frost.

Soon enough it will be time for Arctic Cat green. That's me on the left, you can tell by the eyes!

Extra special bonus points for whoever can tell me where this is. Hint!!!! It snows there a lot. Plus there is another clue over on the left.

THE BEST TIME IS NOW!!

This is a midwest riders favorite time. For me anyhow. Cool days, Cooler nights. Bugs are low. I ride into the winter if there's no snow on the roads.
I enjoy not sweating my balls off sitting at a corner.
Ramp it UP!

In Oklahoma I ride all winter. Opportunities get a ittle sparse in January and February but I stil make it out a couple of times a month. I have ridden down to about 30 degrees after that it just gets too miserable... too much leather too much gear... you look like a leather clad snowman. But it's still fun... until you can't feel anything anymore.

Yup, In OK you can ride pretty much all year round. But when it gets cold...its EFFING COLD haha!!

Most months you will still have some weekends in the 60's and last December we had some 70's and even 80's in the state lol!!

I prefer this time of year and spring to just about any. Summer here is so miserable. I feel for the Florida and South TX Riders!!

If I can't enjoy the ride, I don't ride. It gets into the 40's or less I become a wuss and would rather not bundle up so much that I feel like I can barely move or not bundle enough that I spend the entire time shivering.
Fortunately, here in Georgia the riding season is long!:D:D

I love fall riding. Cool mornings and evenings, mild days, not many bugs. I pack my jacket liner in case it's needed but that's all the extra gear I take.

Gearing up here in the North East too. Fall riding is the best as far as I'm concerned. 55-65 degree temps are great for riding. We always have at least two rides planned thru the Adirondack Mountains to Lake Placid, NY. I think one of last years ride may have been in mid November if I remember correctly! :bigthumbsup:

Florida with only two seasons: Hot and extremely HOT! Let's see if fall brings the temperature down a little around here. It was extremely uncomfortable riding with the freaking heat!

I really like that Copper/Black two-tone custom paint. Who's bike is that? That's a sweet color combo. :bigthumbsup:

Fall is the best almost anywhere period. Nothern New England is awesome in the fall and you can beat the bright colors you guys get on the hardwoods up there.
