Snowbird is a term usually reserved for us Noreasters heading to Florida here. I can't say I blame anyone from the northern reaches for heading south in the winters. The key there is to find the right weather and the right types of riding areas. What little I know of Florida riding would not cause me to drag my TW from NY to there. To be honest, if I was free as a bird to go where ever I want to go in the winter from NY I have no idea where that place would be. I don't like sand or obsessive heat or humidity at all. I do like mountains over flat terrain. Right here where I live in NY would be perfect if the average temps year round would be close to 60.
