Unhappy Offically losing my s$$t over weather this winter

Everytime I get a day off the weather goes to . If its not freezing then its raining. Put new tires of bike @ 2 weeks ago and have got to ride one day (to and from work). How do people here deal with the lack of saddle time as of recent? I am used to being able to ride almost everyday being that last 9 yrs I have been in San Diego (stationed for Navy). I even bought a 4 wheeler to curb the craving but the weather can even screw that up.

Yeah I rode all summer no probs, almost all highway though...which is why I cant do that below 40 degree stuff.

I could get heated gear and all that but honestly I'd rather just take the car.

Take up a second hobby. Mine is freestyle masturbation. I've almost got my stranger 900 landing.

It's barely 10:30. That's solid work.

Just go out and ride!!

I ride to work everyday unless is heavy raining in the morning. Weather in Houston does not help. You just need to get used to it. My only complaint is trying to keep the bikes clean with all this rain.

I hear ya. I'll ride in 98 degrees but not in 40. As long as you're moving, it's fine

This is me! I ride regardless of temp, and dont mind small showers on the way home. On the way to work I want to stay dry. But it is definitely hard keeping the bike clean for me as there are a lot of commercial truck companies off the county road i ride to work on, which = a lot of MUD on the road. My bike looks like I went off-roading at times!
