With V & P's Tunnel Fillers, Front Deflectors & Rain
Shields and with Tulsa's Windshield, the 1800 is
quite the winter bike. I have long gloves with gauntlets,
but I only was wearing a lite jacket and a ¾ hlemet.
I noticed that at 55mph, I could see my breath. What
other bike could you make such a nice pocket, that at
that speed, the air around you was so calm?

Now for the summer, does anyone have pictures of
their front fairing removed? :lol:

'Mazin ain't it.
I love people's reaction when they see you riding in the 30's,20's, and especially in the teens.
If they only knew that you were comfy and having a ball.

Plus, with winter riding you don't have to clean bugs off your bike after the ride. :D (I received an early Christmas present--an Aerostich heated vest. Very nice!)

It's been 34 here a couple of mornings when I left for work.

My back actually gets cold first. The air swirls around my back and sorta creeps in after 20 miles or so. it is not cold-cold, just noticable.

by the time I am in Phoenix , it is 10-15 degrees warmer.

My recently added "foot wings" work well to keep my feet warmer

Yeah, Tony, we really feel sorry for you down there in chilly Arizona :D . Actually, I'm jealous. I was in Yuma for a few days in Feburary last year and the weather was GREAT. It was tough to come back to the frozen midwest.
