Friday morning, the temperature is to be around 30 degrees. Generally speaking, I will not ride unless it is 36 or warmer; however, it will be a Friday, and I have not been on the bike all week.

If I can find a good pair of gloves I would not mind this weather. My fingers were so numb I was fumbling with my helmet latch for over 5 min. before I could get it off my head.

I came out of the apartment one morning to ride to work, and the KTM supermotard had a layer of ice covering it.

The entire ride to work I had to leave the choke on, it was so cold the motor would stall otherwise

Needless to say, I got some funny looks

Yeah it was cold as this morning at 6am! I got on the throttle doing 45mph dropped a gear and was surprised to have the tire break loose, I know it was because of the cold streets but it was kinda fun doing a rolling burnout that fast. I had to let off the throttle ALOT just to get it to hook back up! Risky I know but still kinda fun.

Supposed to be 33 degrees tomorrow morning. That is one degree above freezing. So, I guess I will attempt a ride to work tomorrow morning. On the bright side, there will be no chance of me sweating.
