If you've got the right gear you can be warm even when it's below freezing

Rode into work last night at 11:30, and went out for lunch around 4:30am. I didn't know it was that cold outside when I woke up, so i sure wasn't dressed for that. I was running too late to throw more clothes on.

I work nights so I rode in about 1030pm and got back a few min ago and windy was an understatement . I felt like I was a wind sail on wheels both there and back.

At one time fairings on road race bikes covered the front wheel. They soon learned it was a bad idea and added fairing restrictions to the rules

i saw the temp said 24 and got dressed to take the truck. Once i made it outside it felt warmer than i thought. Too lazy to go back inside to put on my boots, and knee pads so i just stayed in the truck.

Got the bike apart right now awaiting my FMF slip-on, but its slated for delivery Thursday. If I can get the header modifications done for the ZX9R header and get it buttoned up Thursday evening, I'll probably do the early ride up to Conroe on Friday.

Crossing my fingers! Well, I'll cross 'em now while they're not frozen into blocks of ice

Rode yesterday, had to bring a item to ship today that wouldn't fit on the scooter. On the way home yesterday one of my gloves came unplugged.

Freaking fingers were COLD....

This afternoon should be nice.

i left the house at 4:30 this morning. i have a 45 minute ride and the weather man said it was 36 plus the 15 mph wind coming off the beach. wasnt too bad, its mostly the fingers and toes.

my gear is a carhart longsleeve thermal, long sleeve shirt, two hoodies, a carhart jacket, cotton gloves with mechanic gloves over top, sweat pants and jeans on top, an inexpensive helmet, and my cowboy boots
