New Cold Weather Record For Me
« on: January 16, 2018, 03:58:01 pm »
So....Denise's car is in the shop.  She and Madelyn took my truck to work.  That left me to ride the bike.  No biggie.  I thought the low last night was supposed to be in the 30s.  turns out the temp on the way to work was 19!   :-\

Overall did fine, but need to put the lower fairing back on for riding this cold.  Back of hands were cold, but the heated grips helped.

People probably thought I was nuts.  :))

You "ARE" nuts.  {regardless of how cold it is when you go motorcycle riding}.   :nananana:

Good for you Dave!

Where's your spirit Ted? Don't be a wuss.  :nananana:

It was 21* when I left on my New Year's  Day ride with a high of only 25*. I had a glove problem so I cut it short, only 90 miles!

good deal! I love riding in the super cold, went to work first week of the year and it was 15 when I left the house but I ran heated gloves, jacket, pants, socks and grips, didnt even get a little cold. Not many days I get a chance to use all the gear, gonna be 14 tomorrow but snowed today and getting Icy so guess it's the truck again.......if I go at all.

We don't normally ride around here if it's below 50*...
But occasionally we get caught away from home.

So, I guess my record is 16*..
My sad story;
I put on the Big Bend Ride may years ago in late Feb. or early March. {don't recall exact date}
An officer stopped us that night to err admire our motorcycles and told us a storm was approaching.
At the time, the temp was about 60* or 70*..
We sed no problem, we had a coat.. {duhh!} an dheaded for the Motel.
The next morning a real cold front had come thru.
It was 18* when we awoke,  and sleeting/snowing.
  { so we mostly hibernated that day }..  Somehow, we were able to get out and buy extra gloves etc, because the next day, we had to go..
At daylight, we loaded up, the snow/sleet had passed,, but it was 16*...
Away we went..
{luckily} It warmed rapidly after we left Alpine and became pleasant as we rode to Del Rio...

Ride safe, Ted
