Florida....and Arizona, and Mexico, although the latter is less appealing lately. I loathe the cold. I would love to sell everything, pack up the bikes and move.

If you move to florida dont think its all sunshine. My dad lives there and hes always talking about the massive down pours he gets. But when the rain is 90 degrees that makes up for it. Florida's great even if it does rain alot.
I think the Canadians come down to the northen U.S. to get away from the cold.

No winter where I am at right now, but I have lived in some wintery places.

In England and Japan it lasted too long for my liking. Still I pulled on a pair of rigger boots and rode right through winter in the UK. No helmet when riding the Exmoor Common to check on the cattle each morning at daybreak; just a woolly hat. Sometimes it was snowing. Helmet on the road, of course, but open face..... never have been able to get along with full face.

I never did get to ride in Japan, unfortunately; had a company Kei car.

In North American parts winter lasts longer, and is colder with more snow, so I sense your frustration.

In New Zealand winters are shorter, and less severe. A bit of snow in the South Island, but not much. Snow only a couple of times in the North in my lifetime; not so cold , but there is plenty of weather. Just when you start to get sick of winter daffodils pop up to herald the start of spring. People ride all year in NZ, and there are a couple of mid winter rallies; the Brass Monkey and the Cold Kiwi.

It is Phuket Big Bike Week(end) time.... big bikes and big attitude roll in from all over Thailand and neighbouring countries. Last year the Banditos had a significant presence. Had to snicker to see fifty or sixty something wannabes with Prospect embroidered on their jacket.

The lucky Canadians go where the sun is; "Snow birds". Wish I was one. I live at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, Banff Alberta . Weather can be sketchy with Chinook winds that dump the barometric pressure triggering migraines in the unfortunate. Makes riding bikes an airborn adventure. Could almost earn pilots wings. One can get sick of the quick change in weather here. Summers can be shorter. Snow doesn't melt completely in Lake Louise until late June/early July. Not uncommon to have a snow fall in summer. Hense, the need to move. As far the poster telling me to hand in my Canadian card cause i plugged in my vest yesterday, he shouldn't talk. He's from vancouver. When snow falls there the city panics and traffic grid-locks. Not saying disparengingly buddie lol. Love the west coast.:D

Money Money Money will solve the Northern blues. How I keep going to the mom and pop store and saying " 5 on lotto" to fulfill my dreams of living in a place where a battery tender is a obscene object. Forget Cali or AZ or FL I want more give me that rich man's paradise Australia. Come October I will be looking at the sky some more and screaming at my fate if the area code associated with my name is still 98144.
