Those of you who are still riding... you suck.

Those of you who are still riding / able to ride... you suck. I hope you know that.

Without actual winter gear, I simply don't see how its possible and reasonably safe. And I'm not talking snow and ice, but the impact to your mental state when your fingers are literally freezing off.

I've ridden down to about 45F and at ~70mph in the country, after an hour's ride with silk liners and full gauntlet's my fingers are really cold. Not tingly but close.

Or are we smart for moving to the South? It was 14F yesterday morning here in GA, so no riding this week. Next week calls for mostly 60's and 70's though.

I've ridden down to 27F, but I have snowmobile pants that I wear below about 45. With those, insulated jacket liner, winter gloves, and a balaclava, it's actually very comfortable in the 40's.

Its 60F here today and I still have an issue with my aftermarket rearsets. The vendor is quickly arriving on my never-again list Otherwise taking the bike would have been a very serious consideration
