The weather is usually pretty fair their in the winter. I did a solo ride down there in mid December http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=300307

You can ride every month if you wanted to. Just super hot in the summer and a bit chilly in the winter.

I don't know why but I love rocky terrain on dirt bikes. Probably because that is what I learned on.

I checked the link above before posting. Average low temperature is below freezing for Nov-March. If the average low is sub 32 degrees you know there are some real cold days in there.

Not too much snowfall though.

Yes, but the average lows are at night. The average high is a better number to look at because we typically go riding during the day and the temp swing is usually pretty large in the desert.

Dayum! $450! A hooker, bottle of Macallan, and an eight ball is the benchmark for $450. That's a pretty high hurdle.

Not for me, I'm always out on the road before dawn and after dark riding and camping.

But it's more fun than all of that.


Re:temp

Another thing you forget is its a drier cold, 32 degrees in Utah is much more pleasant than 32 degrees down here.
