    Default I'm glad I got my ride in yesterday.

    When it was a sweltering 42

    Wow. At 42 I wouldn't even LOOK at my Spyder. At 72 I wear my leather jacket.
    But I've been riding nearly each day lately, without a jacket!

    I've taken 60+ mile rides at as low as 19. Cold is no big deal. Snow and/or ice on the other hand? Well yeah, that's kind of a deal breaker.

    Holy cow! If I did that they'd find me stiff as a board in a turnout somewhere still in the seat.

    I've ridden in the upper 20's this year but teens probably won't find me on the road much. Especially for any distance. You are a trooper Greg!

    I live in the Phoenix area, and believe it or not it gets cold (to us, anyway) in the desert. What we don't have is ice and snow. I don't care how cold it is, I'll ride. I've ridden in the upper 20's, which is rare. It usually doesn't get below freezing here, but lower 30's don't scare me.

    Born & raised in Detroit Michigan. Moved to the lower Fla. Keys in 85. Found that it was easier to shovel rain. Relocated to north central Fla. in 98. There are a few things I miss living in Michigan. Snow, cold & ice, not so much=:-)


    Best,

    Been going to work and back on the Spyder this winter as it has been weird cold but no snow and not much need for salt so I have able to ride a couple of days a week on a regular basis, in the mornings teens and 20's afternoon 40's and 50's.

    I have my snowsuit that I wear with some joe rocket snowmobile gloves, haven't had a need for any heaters yet although I do have the face shield on my full helmet freeze over at lower speeds.

    Looked out the window this morning. It appears between a little rain and warmer temps, 99.9% of the lingering snow from my original post is gone. My weather app is showing highs for the next 10 days of at least 47 which is telling me the riding season is drawing ever closer.
