I have a '07 Suzuki GSR600. Did 6,250 miles this season. Season, because I can ride it only about 6-7 months/year.

Same here unfortunately. New England weather is the worst. On the bright side, it's around that time of the year where I can wear leathers and not get weird looks.

Try riding it on the circuit, full leather at 40 Celsius, then complain about weird looks

Goes something like this:

Colorado weather is so strange, it is totally a seasonal activity here.

2009 Suzuki Boulevard M90 here. Haven't been on any trips the last couple years but do a few runs and events and ride to work in the summer as much as I can.

I started with a 97 Honda F3 and had an 03 Honda F4i as well. Sold them for a downpayment on my first house and haven't had time for another.

Nope. No way I'm riding a motorcycle in Jacksonville. People are too crazy and careless here.

I ride a 2000 ZX-12R. I was so busy with work this summer saying I ride might be a bit of an exaggeration.

About the same in Tampa. I personally have had to testify as a witness 4 times in the last 12 years. I'd rather ride in NYC.

05 Yamaha R1, put 20,000 miles in Texas before I moved back to Alaska for school. Now I can barely put 200 miles during the summer for the last 3 years. I miss the Texas weather!

Seeing that kickstand on sand makes my palms sweaty

I have a 1981 Yamaha XS1100 that has been sitting for a few years (needs gone through, doesn't run right.. possibly just cracked coils but haven't put the time in to fixing it) and a 2000 Suzuki GZ250 that I bought last year to get me back on the road, not a lot of bike there but its OK for my 10 mile drive to work and back...

Unfortunately I haven't rode at all this year... lost the key to the Suzuki last fall and searched all spring for it, then been busy all summer with wedding plans, finally just before the wedding (end of august) my dad was up and found the key laying in my yard somehow, but the battery is toast from sitting out in the garage all winter so need to put a new battery in it and just haven't got around to it now that I'm catching up after the wedding... better luck next year hopefully...
