Just rolled in. 30 degF. It was fine. Had my solid Dainese jacket with the rest of the leathers and a collared flannel shirt, buttoned at the neck. For steady highway, neck gets covered and electric vest is usually on. Snowmobile gloves, long johns, and good wool socks finish that package off, good well down into the twenties.

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.

Amen brother. The raods around here are bad enough in the summertime,.at the the first sign of a salt truck, thats it. Ride'n ain't no fun if you got no traction.

I get to ride year 'round. The only "off-season" I have is when I'm off the bike. :twofinger

I Ride every day to work rain, hail or sleet, but Riding for fun can be patchy in winter, unless you class some rear action fun.
