Question Prefer Day or Night Riding

I've been riding more and more lately, especially because I'm very excited about riding my new 600RR at every excuse.

And the more I ride, I find out and learn that I enjoy riding in the day light so much more than when it's dark outside.

Do you prefer riding in the day or night?

Please feel free to share your thoughts and discuss...

When in the city I love riding at night! It's so peaceful and nice with a warm breeze and empty but bright roads, but in the woods where I'm living now, it's straight up dangerous. I swear deer will be the end of me one of these days when a ride turns extra late..
Edit: I actually learned to ride motorcycles late at night, which may be apart of why I feel the peacefulness lol

Love riding at night but it is much more dangerous. It is more peaceful at night when the roads aren't so busy and you don't have to worry as much about other drivers.

I like riding at night better, it's awesome you feel very cool with a the red-lights night Street lights empty roads and all, especially when there traffic isn't busy cos I hate stopping so often and I don't like seeing my bike temp rising up to 100* celsius..

I don't mind either day or night. :-)

I'd rather be next to a rider that can maintain a controlled wheelie than a muppet on their phone.

Early morning on the weekends. Maybe when they are done with all the road construction I might think about night riding.

very rarely go out at night, i can see those preferring it though (in areas where the outside temp is extreme) also much less idiots to worry about on the roads.

I enjoy daytime riding. I only ride at night if I have too much fun riding all thru the day!

Daytime is better for me, local rural roads, and almost no traffic.

Wild pigs and deer crossing these same roads at night.
