Going to Traxxion in the morning. Supposed to be 17 degrees at the house in the morning! I have never ridden in that cold of weather. 23 without heated clothes is my tops. This ought to be interesting. I am sure of one thing. The ride home will much more fun than the drive there. I might have to head north to do some beta testing!

I can attest that Gerbings are good at least down to 8 degrees at 80mph, but thats with the whole suit-socks, pants liner, jacket liner, gloves, and some good jacket and pant shells. DO BE CAREFUL for black ice. I ride mine everyday unless it snows or need a buncha groceries.

Just did a little 10 mile run for the paper in 11 degrees. No heated clothing, but my grips and seat cranked up.

I was too busy concentrating on not losing the bike on the slippery streets to worry about being cold.

Gerbering pants

Have you guys got the pants liners and like them the ones I tried them and they barely got warm here in MN so I passed on them.
