brrrrr...........

had to break out the winter jacket and gloves............also the hi-def. faceshield, since it's so dark in the morn.

advice to the PP boyz, be very careful leaving PP. seen too many people tryin to leave JCI, and pin the throttle, all cool like, to have to rear spin up and highside right in front of everybody.............. :laughing6 , cuz they're tires were not warmed up, and cold streets make slippery streets.

also watch out for those big paint stripes, they get slippery and moist when cold, thats what caused me to crash @ 610 and westheimer in ft of the shell station.

also if your riding and can't get warm. stop and get a greensheet or houston press and take a few sheets and put it inside your jacket, it'll help you warm up.

also remember kiddies... it's the wind... not the cold... one pair of sweatpants underneath rainpants will keep you warmer than four layers of sweatpants... (no joke)...

i forget what it's called... it looks like a ninja mask... might be called a helmet sock or something like that... had two of them for years - so it's been a while...

try patrick @ m-u... or maybe cycle gear...
