Got up this AM & temp was -1. Coldest i'd ridden before was mid-teens, which i'd done several times before. I said aha, an opportunity.
Got dressed, motorcycle started easy in my unheated garage, & i rode 30 miles before returning home. My face got cold, but everything else was warm.
Gear i wore.
3/4 open face helmet, baklava(sp) & neck warmer
Med. weight sweat shirt over bare skin, Gerbing jkt liner, leather jkt w liner
Gerbing glove liners under ski gloves
long john pants,fleece lined jeans & 1st Gear H2O lined over pants
wool socks & Cruiserworks boots.
Last time it was this cold in my neighborhood was in 1982 when it was -5 dgs.. Only had the Gerbings cranked up 1/2 way.
Weather was clear,dry, no wind, no traffic, & bright sunshine.
Good ride.
happy trails,
the hobo
