Looks like I may be headed that way. How cold does it really get in north eastern VA, and how long does that last? Is riding a guaranteed no-go, or do you just have to be a bit on the tough side?
been there is winter just as cold as here in Pa at times better

Hick it can be pretty diverse depending on where the wind is blowing from. South winds will keep it mostly in the 40s-50s. North winds now your talkin teens and 20s. Obviously that will determine the kind of precipitation too. After the first of the year for 10-12 weeks is when it can really go one way or the other.
better shop for some heated gear. being from texas it's gonna be really hard to get used to that first year . Brrrr

I was stationed in Norfolk years ago and rode year round on an old Virago 535. I don't remember it ever getting cold enough for the roads to ice, and it never snowed enough to stick... That was in the early 90's so I'm not sure how it is out there now.
..you're gonna need a windshield and lowers now big boy..don't worry, you can take that chit off around May..lol..ever heard the word...Gerbing??....
It's only cold at first...
I bet you could do the outa breath stroke!!
Can you say Nudie bar?
Hey there jerkee. If you really do go to Va, I got a new pair of winter riding gloves headed ur way..
Hope things go the right way for the Hick Family...
..here's a couple of pics of last winter..
Ah, so are you going to be pitching a tent permanently at Bull Dogs Dairy Queen camp ground?
I ride year round as long as there isn't snow, ice or too much salt/ sand on the ground. Wife says I am crazy... need to relieve the stress somehow and am too lazy to winterize 5 bikes, so I need to ride a lot...
It's warmer than Maine

I live around Richmond and will ride year round as long as there is no ice and snow.
It is cold, but not as cold as it was when I lived in Indy.
..if ya move up here, don't let bulldog talk ya into doing this..
Hick, the weather in hampton is a little warmer then up here near wash.dc. When we get snow and ice they just get rain most of the time. Maybe shyman and greyghost will chime in, they live in the hampton,va beach area, i hope you and your family are doing good my friend. Jr

Couple of frosty months.
4 seasons, short winter and summer, longish fall and spring. Tidewater area can get a bit muggy, but lost of nice by-ways.
I left Newport News last February during a heavy rain. Around Toano, Williamsburg it turned into blizzard conditions. Counted 21 vehicles run off of the road before I got back to Chesterfield. Realized then how great my Expedition was in the snow.
Back to the subject. We do usually have some fair days even in February. There is no need to winterize. Just put it on the Tender and be ready for them.

Not sure about NEVA; all i can address is SEVA and NOVA.
SEVA is 40's F in AM and 60F during the day; NOVA will be a few degrees cooler. The good thing is that time of year, the winds aren't blowing, which can make it feel worse.
They get snow in NOVA; we get very little, if any, in SEVA. NOVA is a lot like DC/Southern MD; they have more of a real winter than we do in SEVA.
