Who else rode the bike in today?

It was cold this was the first time my hands really hurt when I got off the bike. I thought they had frost bite, is that posible.
I need to return the gloves I got and get a warmer pair that I could feel the controls better. I think I woulda been better off with my regular riding gloves.

I bought some Frank Thomas Aquapore advanced gloves. They are the warmest gloves you can imagine.

About 1 hour. I ride 50 miles from Richmond to Channelview. It sucked. My hands were the only thing I was worry'd about. I was layer'd up. I wear my neaprean top that I surf in when the water is a little chilly.
Like in the link.

I discovered the computer on the RT issues a freeze warning on the display in the form of a little snowflake. It comes on at 36 degrees. Just when I stopped thinking about how cold it was, up pops the flashing snow flake.

Heated grips are cheap and easy to install. They make a huge difference.
