When is it to windy to ride?

For your abilities or just general comfort level, when do you think it is to windy to ride? Seeing as how this is my first full summer of riding, I find that almost the slightest breeze has me grabbing the grips a bit tighter on the road. I'm getting a bit more comfortable as I fine tune my balance, but when I see the flags snapping in the breeze out the window, I get a bit worried about my ride home.

In Oklahoma it's rare that it's not windy. I rode home one day when it was 30mph w/ gusts nearing 50mph. That was definitely too windy. .that flat out sucked. lol

The first few times on the highway in the wind were pretty frightening, but I don't even think twice about it now. Anyway, to answer the question I'd say about a steady 25mph+.

In general just relax and look forward. If the wind is coming from the right, push right a little bit. Trust the bike and you'll be fine. :thumbs:
