Exactly cheatin, sometimes in the winter here when it is down in the 50s I wish I had that heated seat as well.
It would be EXTREMELY unladylike for me to respond to these posts with my actual reaction....

9 or 10 for me. From mid March till sometime in December. I'm not as brave as some of the other northern guys here. If i need heated gear it's just not that fun anymore. I'll hop in the car and turn on the heat. I'm already looking forward to spring.

The average is 8 months for me in the northeast. Usually Dec thur March I put bike in storage. As mention in other comments in this thread, the salt put down in winter weather plays havoc on metal along with hazardous roads.
But some years riding in high 30 to 40 degree temperatures without heated clothing can be a challenge. Must bundle up.

I don't ride that much in the winter time unless we get a really warm spell, but still take it out a few times each month in Dec-Feb stretch...:moped:

It was easy in Hawaii, but now that I am in Virginia who knows. So far so good.
