I decided to take the bike to work yesterday


It was a wee bit chilly and dark but otherwise a perfect morning for a ride.

It is about 100 miles round trip to my work with a mix of slab and back roads.


I decided on the way home to stop by Main St, check out some Xmass lights and take a photo op

All in all My toes got a little cold but otherwise it was very enjoyable. Hopefully Santa will leave some electric sox under my tree to complete my ensemble.

Nor'easter tomorrow. Looks like I'll be in the cage for a bit.

Nice job there BigGuy! great post with pics. cool. Or cold...

I rode in this morning(0800), a balmy 21 and a 35 minute commute. It's a little after 10 pm tonight and I'm about to head back home. The temp is up to 30 right now so it will be a warm ride home.

Roll all winter if you can. There is no such thing as bad weather (almost), just bad clothing!!!

You make me feel so guilty when I complain about riding in sub 40 degree weather. I'm such a puss.

It's funny how non-riders don't get it. I get questions like "Were you in a bad accident once?" Riders always get it.

Yeah, it's also funny when I get that "you actually rode your motorcycle today?" look. I expect it from the non-riders...I get it from the so called "regular" riders, too!

It's great seeing the expressions of people in cages that actually look like they are colder than I should be. My coldest ride was 7* when I left and 9* when I returned home almost an hour later. This is without any electric apparel. Although my toes were complaining loudly inside my steel-toed boots. I should probably get some electric gear..........

It was actually warmer on the ride home last night at 11, a real balmy 29*F.

Looking forward to a sub-zero ride...... yea, I have issues...

I know what you mean about steel toes. Mine are the first thing to get cold during preflight and when standing there fueling. If you've engine guards try the soft fairing lowers, I think HD calls em splash guards. Makes a big difference keeping the wind off the feet and pant opening.:thumbsup:
