Glad you are ok. At my job, if I make a mistake, someone may die, weather folks have a thankless job, but I wish I could be that wrong that many times and still have a job.

Maybe I'm a wuss, but I never ride if the temp is going to be near or below 32 F (0 C).  Too much chance of ice on the roads.  If I can't lean it without worry, there's no enjoyment in the ride.  It's not the cold.  I ride down to 35 all the time and I don't need heated grips or clothing.  Just don't like thought of ice on the road.
That kind of contradicts your username doesn't it?  ;D

 :'(  Ouch.  Good one.  If you read closely though you see it's not the cold I mind, don't need no steenking heated crap, it's the ice.

Probably.  You're not a skier are you?  I'd guess not because heated clothing is too heavy to use for skiing, not to mention the battery.  Well, next spring then, since I won't see you on the mountain.

I don't use any heated clothing, yet...

I am a skier (water and snow) though, such as it is in Illinois. I do get up to Wisconsin from time to time, Devil's Head and Cascade Mountain. Most of the time (when there's snow, not enough this year yet) we get out on our snowmobiles and tear it up.


That's me with my wife behind.

Average temps since last Wednesday around 24 at 630.  Been training SF Soldiers on basic and intermediate dirt bike riding.  I wish YZs had a battery and heated grips:-)   Must say frozen sand has loads of traction and that snow covered puddles do not.  Moving along in the 20s at 30+ and the face gets nippy quick, hands are soon to follow.  Once warmed up its time for a brief brief to keep the sweat from freezing.  Lunch at noon, full belly, sweat wet gear, sun on the wrong side of the fog, new class.  I reckon if I had a black bike I'd park it as well ;)

Park it? There is no way I could leave this black beauty in the garage all day. 28 when I had a slight slide out across the overpass this morning.
