  • I hate not being able to ride because of cold weather

    So instead, I watch videos like this that pop up every once and a while on one of the other bike forums I am a member of. Sounds interesting, especially since everything on the internet is true. Great little production though...considering.

      I have some wool long john and insulated coveralls, and still to cold for me, 37 highs. Guess it's my age, or just being wimpy. Every Winter reminds me why I left Wyoming.

    Personally, my legs aren't the issue, they can be popsicles and I'm fine, but the rest of me feels it... Fortunately I've found the fork mounted deflectors work better than a windshield at stopping the cold... Just saying. Something to consider.

      yeah, i feel for you guys, it was like 45 degrees the other night here by kennedy space center, brrrrrr. for us. if it gets below 70, were wearing winter wear.
      temp dropped 45 degrees last week, and went up 40 back, heat off, AC back on . supposed to be 86 today, global cooling i guess.
      but it was cloudy and 60 , felt like yankee land again. everything appears grey and dark, like a black and white photo until sun pops thru and brightens the colors of vegetation of tropical trees and plants.
      riding at nite, the cold goes thru all the sewing holes in your gloves and clothes.
      reminds me of when my only vehicle was a yamaha tx750 with a big shield to duck behind. like the mail, the yamaha must go thru. rain, snow sleet. once in awhile, i would get off bike and stand up, my pants still frozen at the bend in the knee from frozen road buildup, and my wet frozen pony tail that stuck out of my helmet.
      i do not miss that shit man!

                79 would not be so bad if the humidity was below 70%. It's like walking into a steam bath !

              72 degrees in Athens, Georgia today.
              I love the smell of smoked pork in the morning !

                After the stupidly hot summer we had this year, the cold is actually a welcome change for me. Got some cold, clear nights. Little snow. We get clear skies in northern Michigan in the winter that you just can’t get in a more tropical climate.

                Take the good with the bad I suppose. I do miss riding but I also love how crisp the cold air feels and I have a nice hot fire going every night at home so I can cozy up to my woman and...

                  I’ve kayaked down the Betsie river a few times. Very easy little stream. I grew up going to Crystal Lake in the summers. Where I learned my love of water skiing and all that. Brings back good memories.
