I forgot to put the aero skirt on my helmet on my 4am commute and had to ride with my left hand under my chin for 95% of the trip to keep the cold air from making my eyes water

I did get some new underarmor knee high socks this weekend. short and long sleeve tee shirt with my "light" winter gloves. Was fine from the waist up and knees down but the middle was chilly. This will be first winter on the new scoot, up right seating as opposed to hunched forward.

Guess I'll need to wrap my raskle a bit to keep warm....

Meant to bring the car in this morning but forgot I had our child seats in the back... so back in doors and throw on as much gear as I could in 3 min to jump on the bike...

I know I rode a couple of days last year in the low 30's, but right now I'm having a hard time believing it. Even with fleece liners my hands were freezing after about 20 min. Part of that is lack of wind protection from the front fairing (which I removed a month or 2 ago), but I'm thinking maybe it's time to admit I'm getting old and spring for heated grips.

Winter gear...just sayin I went on an 1100 mile road trip on the 750 this weekend an I rocked -less chaps. And my name is Mike. And I went to a wedding. The bridesmaids jokes about Magic Mike DIDN'T STOP.

So lesson learned, keep the cheeks on your leathers if your name is Mike. Oh and yeah, today's ride in is going to suck. I can see 59 from my house and its a disaster

Exactly, all chaps do not have a seat, so you wore chaps. I've heard that horsemen have been known to wear them.
