Was that 29 deg. F or C? If "F", wouldn't that be snowing?

The coldest I have riden in is about 19. That was pretty freaking cold. Almost impossible to keep the helmet visor from fogging up every time I took a breath. Luckily it doesn't get that cold down here in SC too often, It was 72 Saturday. too too nice.

Yeah, I never thought of that. It was a bank clock/thermometer so it was probably inaccurate.

The coldest I went this year was 26. I have to ride on the interstate to get to work so I was freezing. I won't do that again.The coldest I would ride in everyday would be 30+..

I'll go as low as 40 degrees. Here in PA this time of year it's not the cold that will get you it's all the gravel, salt, ice, potholes etc etc that you have to worry about. I won't be out until mid April. By that time the snow will have melted and a few rain storms have flushed the roads.

I should have moved south

I never have met a sane person on 2 wheels yet.

I rode to Florida and back last December, not sure what the lowest was, but it never got above 35 on the way down, until we got into Florida, and then it was only around 45-50. It wasn`t the most enjoyable ride, but I`d do it again if I had to. Having those little hand warmer things you get in the hunting section of wal-mart makes it more bareable for your hands/feet, wear lots of layers, and a bandana across your face to keep your neck warm/keep your visor from fogging up. Only saw one other bike the whole way, and it was a BMW, and he looked a hell of alot more comfertable than I did (heated seats, heated grips, nice big wind screen, plastic covering his legs from wind).

I don`t intentionally go out when its that cold, I don`t really enjoy riding when I have to worry about salt/ice/cold pavement-tires.

Look . . . the people you are after are the people you depend on. We cook your meals, we haul your trash, we connect your calls, we drive your ambulances, we guard you while you sleep. Do not fu|< with us.

I used to be like the 'go fucks yourselves and eats shit' (?) Corky (Life Goes On) from a couple of posts ago, but I'm learning to thicken the blood up here and ride when it's colder than I'd like. I've been riding in 40 degrees, and it's not so bad: lined warm-up pants on underneath my jeans, several layers under a jacket, a turtleneck to keep my neck and head warm (this new Shoei of mine is low on the back of my head, and wind shoots right up it), a thick pair of socks with thick boots, and thick gloves......good to go. Besides, the weather's too cold here most of the year, so you gotta enjoy it while you can.
