Last winter, I commuted my 8 miles down to 38 degrees but anything longer, it has to be at least in the 50s. I don't have any winter gear yet.

Back in the day I rode mine home 60 miles in snow.. followed an 18-wheeler most of the way

Don't think that will be an issue down here...

My coldest ride was from Nacogdoches back to Houston and it was about 28 outside and it took me 3 hours to get back because i had to stop every 30 minutes to let my fingers warm up.

but i got a new jacket with a AWESOME liner, i tried it out when it was like 50 or so last night and i was sweating when i got home, so im going to keep it out till it gets below like 30

Coming from a guy that owns his bike because the paint looked pwetty doesn't mean much champ.
