    BRRRRRR, the key to riding in the cold is to protect the exposed flesh, plus condensation will build in the oil with lower temperatures faster, longer warm up times for the engine oil should be on your list jMO

    Same here, it's 67 degrees outside! I mean really, what the hay? I won't complain though! lol. When it does get cold though, I dress in layers. The coldest it's gotten was 22 degrees. not too shabby.

    Hehe, I do love the mountains but most definitely not in the winter! Unless I had either a snowmobile or a four-wheeler! lol, those are must haves in the upstate New York region. Shoot they even pass out snowmobile road maps because the main roads become so bad....lol. I stayed with my Aunt and Uncle up in Ft. Plain, NY for about 6 months a few years back, man The snow was horrendous!!
