Is it Spring yet?

First day commuting via motorcycle. It is possible that I could have been doing this all February as it was REALLY warm and dry, but I got on the road the first day of March. I am sure it is still Winter many places, but is it sunny and warm and are you using your bike?

Re: Is it Spring yet?

I use mine during almost the year, with rain, showers or sun! :D

In foggy days or with heavy winds I prefer to leave it in the garage and use the car.

Same here, all year round. I only flinch (mildly) from black ice/freezing rain, but have had to ride home even in such road conditions. With a controller capable of fine controllability and some proper winter tires even that is possible on two electric wheels :-)
But a proper battery heating is a must for fun rides below about 10°C. I have ridden down to -19°C, -2.2F...
But when it gets warmer again I do greatly appreciate that too!

My rides:
2017 Zero S ZF6.5 11kW, erider Thunder 5kW

One meter of snow on the lawn, but roads are almost bare.
Days are longer, sun is warmer. - So I am anxious to do some proper testing of Leaf cells :)

80F forecasted for tomorrow here in the Washington, DC area! Rode today in 70F+ and it was nice. Anything below 60F, and I usually don't venture out. My Leaf cells survived their second winter hibernation without any issues, it seems. Around 3-4 months without charging. Still just as well-balanced without a BMS as the day I put them in. I'll probably add a 19th cell, so the bike will be operating in the 140V+ range most of the time - it's peppier there vs. The 130V+ range...

Indianapolis in the 70's today! got the bike out, aired up the tires and tightened the kickstand bolt, and ran some errands. I think the thundersky batteries go into sleep mode when they get cold, always takes several rides before they act properly.
Nice to get out.
