i ride in all weather here in the UK, the only thing that would stop me is thick snow. as long as your prepared and have good tyres and take it easy, no reason not to. I can HIGHLY recommend the new Knox Zero2 Winter gloves by the way.....
I've ridden down to -8℃, but I usually leave that for the d/s. Don't mind so much if it goes down on ice. I've gotten the Brute out in -4℃, it loves that cold air, but the tires stay pretty dicey. Once the temp stays consistently below zero I put it away and stick with the KLX.
MyzTied - yeah when the bike goes up I'm ready for snowmobiling!
Kiwidoc - that is crazy! I've never pushed that far.
hmmhmm - Denmark wow - seems like you'd want to extend that short season as much as possible.
I know I've ridden in very cold teens and low 20's F (maybe once in the single digits but only a very short trip) but only when the roads are clear with 0% percipitation and only before they dump salt everywhere.
Early this year when I first got my MV I was out riding and pulled into a parking lot that had several frozen puddles. It made me much more aware than my normal high awareness while riding haha.
Anyone have a less expensive "good" alternative to the gloves MVO5 mentioned?
