I've never ridden in fog but I must say that riding in 110 degree heat is absolutely miserable. Its exactly like riding into a hair dryer.

Worst ride i ever had. Up in north texas i was riding at night (1 or 2 am) it was cold (high 40s low 50s) and it was foggy with patches of dense fog where you couldnt see 5 feet in front of you. Not only does it fog up the inside of your visor, but it makes it feel WAY colder. But I'm always up for a challenging ride.

Works very well when you're going 60+. I hated riding in the foggy mist this morning, but I hate wind, too. Should have been an option. And my jeans got wet this morning, so I'm doomed to be cold all day at school.

BUT- I would still rather be on the bike than driving the truck, so I don't care. I'm going to ride in any weather.

I can deal w anything but cold for an extended period. It effects your reactions and grip on the road. At least when its raining you know the road conditions are present. Cold patches or riding down a road not warmed by other motorists can be dangerous in cold conditions.

I absolutely refuse to ride when there's a chance for icy roads. 35 and below is no go for me cus somewhere in town there could be ice. Sitting in traffic at 110* sucks too.

Cold and fog. Gets up under the back of your jacket and freezes your kidneys, hypothermia makes me puke every time

Rode 10 - 11 last night and, once I opened my visor and took off my glasses, it was kinda nice.

of the choices I'd say fog, roards are slippery because they're just barely wet and its hard to see and the cagers can't see you very well

the worst for me, hail, yeah it was painful

its like I tell the people in my office who think I'm crazy for riding when its going to rain or riding when its in the 30's

I don't mind being wet (on a hot summer afternoon its kind of refreshing), and I enjoy being cool/cold, but I HATE being both
