Six month riding season and you are in Miami? I would have thought it'd be much longer than that. Where I am, folks ride from April through October, and I've even seen some folks out in November. Too hot in a leather jacket, I can't stand sweat streaming into my eyes at every stoplight and its not very safe either. When I took my bike down to Georgia in August about 15 years ago a lot of people were puzzled that I would be riding in the heat -- struck me as a little odd, but I guess when you have the luxury of year-round riding you can afford to be picky about it.
