Must be getting cold in the Northern Hemisphere

Or to coin a phrase "winter is coming"  for you folk.

The lack of posts means you must all be tucked up around a good fire.

In the southern Hemisphere we are too busy riding our bikes (when we are well enough).

Not yet!

It was 107F (42C)here today in the SW USA. But, yes it's coming. Spring and fall are the good times here, summer is too hot for me, with my electric gear I will be able to stand the cold of winter this year. Cold of winter to me is 40-60F (5-15C).

Tony, if you are trying to get our (collective) goat, you are doing a good job.  But then we consider that you are living in the sub-tropical climate of Cairns and don't suffer winter at all.  Ergo, methinks maybe crocodile tears?

I have a similar climate to Wilcom so spring is the best time for riding.

I think the hurricane, combined with some other factors, finally knocked our temps below 95F this week.  Unfortunately it also brought rain. Actually it's very, very much needed here, but unfortunate for riding.

This will start what I consider the most comfortable times here, along with early spring.  We'll have a couple of nice months, temperature - wise, then some colder ones that aren't perfect but not bad.

My riding time is very limited these days, I usually commute on Fridays with the beemer.  This past Friday was quite wet so I decided to take 4 wheels instead.  The temperature is sure to rise after the storms clear as BPT mentions though.
  

'86 R65 with '84 motor ~66000 miles.  SS lines, Spiegler rotor, Progressive monoshock, Keihan silencers, a piece of Pichler fairing.
'76 CB400F ~26000 miles.  Weepy SS lines, big dent in the tank.
