Does the thermometer in the dash of an '05 stop working?:D
According to the thermometer at the house it was 2.5*F.
According to the radio it was 4*F.
35 Min. highway ride to work was invigerating! (no electrics... just layers) Need to get some wind breakers for the hands!

122 is the high limit, I think, I can't remember what the low is right now but it has been discussed here before. I'll search.

Yep...I've seen 14 degrees F many times as the minimum it will indicate. That was up in PA. Hopefully, I won't ever see it off scale low here in SC. :D

I've seen 14 a few times here, thought I saw 10 also, but not sure. Coldest I've ridden in here in NC/SC is 4F on the way to work.

Daver, While you're waiting for your Gerbing gloves to arrive, try putting a layer of duct tape over the surfaces of your gloves that face to wind. Tops of fingers, etc. It helps, but not as good as heated gloves.

Thanks sid, Good Idea, but I'm a little hesitant to start sticking a bunch of Duct tape to my olypia gloves! I was actually thinking about stretching some surgical gloves over them....

Also going to look at snowmobile gloves, maybe the penguin ones with only two 'fingers'...

I am not a weatherman or a motorcycle temperture expert but from what I am reading I would say it stops working at or around 2.5 degrees and 4 degrees..... It is just a hunch though..

Im not sure at what temp it picked up again. It was around -14 with the windchill when I started this morning, and finally got a reading of 14 a few hours later. Wasnt able to catch any lower numbers.

Aw come on Mike, where would be the fun in that... anyone can drive the cage! (so long as the roads are clear, I intend to ride!)

JIT,
Have them check the connector behind the right pocket... Mine was loose from dealer too... easy to get to!

From my the owners manual:

The temperature sensor is located in the upper fairing. Therefore, the
temperature reading can be affected by heat reflection from the road surface,
engine heat, and the exhaust from the surrounding traffic. This can cause on
error in the temperature reading when your speed is under 19 mph (30 km/h).
Below 14°F ( 10°C)‘‘- -’’ is displayed.
Above ‘‘122°F (50°C)’’ The display will remain and blink ‘‘122°F (50°C)’’
:D
