I am a pretty avid rider, I pretty much draw the line with ice; but if it's raining, and really windy that will usually keep the bike in the garage.
I try to ride every day, I usually manage to make some 350-360+ days, and here in the Seattle area, that's not too bad. Certainly better than the average.
KC - You're more dedicated than I am. I only moved to San Diego from Seattle 18 months ago, and I wouldn't ride nearly as often as you if I were still up there. I draw the line at leaving the house in the morning in the rain. If it's dry when I start, and I get rained on later, so be it. Down here, that isn't nearly as big a risk as it is up there.
I have to admit. That looks like a blast! I would have to very warm in that tent though. Paul, remember the bike I was showing you at the BMW dealer? Thats what its made for and I would love to do that.
The tent in the top photo looks like my Mountain Hardware. Camped 2 nights in Yellowstone in July with nighttime temps in the mid 20's.Had ice on the motorcycle & tent in the A.M.. Had some ice in Glacier N.P., & tented in a tropical storm in the Fl. Keys,but nothing like that.
Those foks are truly hardcore,or maybe just crazy. :shock:
Stayed warm in the tent, & warmed up to lo 60's in the daytime.
Got caught in a couple of light snow storms,but nothing that deep. :shock:
If the roads are snow covered,I don't ride.
