    I don't know how many of ya ride when it's under 40 or 30 but if you do and you don't have the Heated grips you can throw some cheepie pocket warmers in your gloves to keep the frostbite away......ok some of you already do that, but what I just found out it those things say they last for 8-10 hours, but if you roll them up in a zip lock bag to get the air out you can use them over and over.

    I got a pair of the Gerbing G3 heated gloves last year that hook into the battery on the bike with an adjustable thermostat on your belt. Wish I had then a LONG time ago. We ride down to about 40* and my hands have never been cold. They are very flexible compared to the older ones.

    28 last year on my way to work was the coldest at 3am thru snow. Got to work and the irrigation valve froze open on the 7th green it was a ice sheet I had to close the course for the day and let it thaw out. I live south of Phoenix so I was suprised to see the snow to say the least.
