The masochistic season begins

33 degrees when I rode to work this morning. Complete with dew and frost on the road. I think I'm going to need some outriggers soon.

I am with you Birdman. It was 30 degrees here in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains this morning as well. I rode 30 miles with the Electric vest, Aerostich and Polar fleece on. The only problem was frost on the insdie of my face shield.

I empathize with you, James. It's been down into the 30's here the last few days. My riding season has ended. I need to do engine work and my tires are all but gone (the centers are great, any "straight-line" weinies interested?).

I've already begun to strip it down to change colors, get new wheels, aftermarket stuff...blah, blah, blah. Can't wait for March!

Yeah, does anyone have any tips on how to stop my face shield from fogging up so bad on the cold mornings? Other than cracking it open and letting all that cold air in and making my nose run.

I haven't personally tried their products but you might want to check out Fog City Fog Shields. They are a thin film that you apply to your face shield with their own adhesive. I couldn't find their own web page but here's an ad for them I found by searching. It's on RKA's web site.

FM Helmets have a fog-free face shield that works pretty damn good. Also, I've heard the neoprene breath deflectors work pretty well, but I've never tried one.

As we stray off topic again.......

So you're keeping the 748 and getting the Gilera? Gee I'm glad you're wealthy.

Any chance that FM fog-free face shield could be used in an Arai?

Unfortunately, not a chance. They have a pretty funky quick change mechanism. It wouldn't fit ANY other helmet.

I'd look into the product that James recommended. I have friends in Europe that swear by it.
