OK
time for a mod to intervene.
this has become unbearably abusive and distressing to those of us facing the long, long, long very cold winter ahead,
Not to mention inciting hatred toward those enjoying both the riding and the gloating.

I hate winter. I hate snow. I hate snowmobilers. ETC!!!!

Tell me about it. I'm looking at 13" of snow in my front yard and two days ago it was -10 degrees F. On top of that, I am getting ready to move to Fairbanks, Alaska. Winter riding is not in my future!

No bugs, and no riders/cars out on my favorite roads are nice... the cold rains and eventual snow will bring me to a halt. I got about 500 miles in this weekend and it was spectacular, although I hit my favorites early in the chilly morning as the tourists and pokey bikers weren't out yet...

There's a pattern here, those who live along the coast versus those who live inland... I put my liner in a couple of weeks ago.

Inland Central Cali here. Put my liner in and broke out my winter pants. It is nice to have NO bugs. Morning temps in low 30's, warming to mid 60's during the day. Great riding weather, and very few pirates.

ah yes but no mods necessary. think the opposite during june, july, august, september...while you ride comfortably in moderate weather, we spend all of our seeking shelter in the air conditioning or in a pool since it's too bloody hot to ride.

This thread is great. Love this season for riding! Summer heat, humidity and storms....not so much. But then there is the mountains
