I did.. Somehow it was colder last night for me. I guess it was a bit more windy. This morning was a bit better... Perhaps because my system had adjusted due to yesterday's extreme. Was a sweet ride.

Just got back home from work. 39 degrees Fahrenheit. At 70 mph, that equates to a wind chill of 22 degrees. I've seen too many riders wearing inadequate safety gear much less adequate cold safety gear. Today, I wore midweight merino wool base layers top and bottom, an electrically heated vest and gloves, 2-piece leather suit with windstopping liners, balaclava with fleece and windstopping fabric, wool socks, and winter riding boots. All my motorcycles have fairings. I was very comfortable.

It didn't seem that cold this morning for some reason. According to my weather app that I check before I leave, numerically I think this has been the coldest day I've ridden this season, but it just didn't feel it.

rode the WR the 12 miles. I was pretty toasty without enough stator power to crank on the heated gear. Although I did wear them.

Damned WR still defaults to a unicycle in 30 something degrees.Anyone know when this thing starts acting like a motorcycle rather a unicycle? (other than when in dirt)

Probably because it wasn't windy and wasn't as humid.

Feel free to brave the cold anyway you see fit. I got heated gear last year and wondered why I waited so long.

I wear overpants, so just a heated jacket is more than plenty for Houston riding. Keep your core warm, and your extremities won't get cold as quickly. Oh, and don't forget a good balaclava... and a pinlock helmet visor.

I much prefer the cold than hot. I get to put on all the gear I want.
