When is it too cold to ride?

When your nipples poke holes through your shirt.

I hate the cold, but still plan to ride into the low 30's or so. Did fine this morn and it was around 45.

Cept, my gloves suck. I kept warming my hands up on my engine whenever I could.

I rode in the low 30s growing up in Jersey. Even lower if the sun's out and the skies are clear. In fact, I think the lowest was about 20-something around Christmas back in '86. I had to mount a full height windsrceen, hand guards to block the wind, multi-layers, scarf, mask, etc... like I was dressed for skiing or snowmobiling. Now, being here almost 20 years, my blood has thinned out so much, I don't think I can take it but would like to try it again and see how I hold up! Just hide behind the fairing, and place your hands on the engine to warm them up. Alot of heat comes up from the engine.

Word.

Wearing the proper layers makes all the difference in the world. Ive never not ridden because I felt it was too cold. Cold and wet is a different story..but Ive been known to have lapses in judgement...

Yeah, the cold + wet thing sux. I'm installing heated grips this weekend, and if the temps in Big Bend drop at night the way I think, I'll need them already the following weekend. I'm considering a heated vest, but I just can't see dropping the cash when it would be used so infrequently down here.

i think the coldest i've ever ridden through was couple years back when it snowed...i rode to work and back, about 10 miles each way. but i often go out when it's low 30's and 19-25 degree wind chill. just have to layer and you're good. glove liners are a must tho. and don't forget to keep an eye on tire pressures, they turn into rocks at 35 degrees.

Last season I rode down to the low 30's, no problem with proper gear. This winter I doubt I'll be doing that since I don't have a fairing. Probably high 30's for a brief ride.
