Wow, 7 degrees.  you are a dedicated biker.
I have rode to work all week, leaving the house at 6 am.  getting home at 7 pm.  ( work 12 hour shifts).
It has been in the 30's each morning & it's been pretty tolerable. 
The ride home, is about 10 degree's warmer and makes a big difference.
I enjoy the cool weather - just have to dress  for it!

Funny tho ---   dont pass as many bikers as I do in August???   wonder why!  lol
I have to admit the stability of a side care makes a big difference, and I have no problem getting out on the 4 wheeler even at 25 below Fahrenheit.  Not crazy just Alaskan.  Besides I am Santa Ludwig Klaus

Ares and the rest of you guys down south; my daughter just read this discussion about needing warm riding in your climate and she said, Dad that is just Pathetic.

Unusual Thanksgiving day in Ohio. Sunny and 60 degrees. Got out and put some good miles on before the bottom falls out this weekend.

Wifey and I rode 125 miles rt to a small family get together, for our annual 3 to 5,000 calorie TG Day meal. ;)
I go too far and too fast to ride a Harley! If you see my bike on a trailer call 911. A Corbin fairing, bags, heated seat, V-Rail and back rest, PC3, PR Air Kit, V&H BR, 5" Chopper's Surplus Z Bars, DWG sound system, Indian front fender, mucho Kuryakyn and Yammy bling,

  I rode for about an hour today, but that is probably the last ride around here because it is not nice outside right now.

A Happy Leftover Turkey Day to MinRaider, and all the great Raider Nation riders that I had the honor to meet on my Pennies Of Passion Ride in 10. :thumbs: :notworthy: :shake: :yourock: You are not forgotten :raider:

Did about 120 miles yesterday to get ready for turkey.
It was still in the mid 50's and nice. Now its in the mid 20's and nasty.

Ray, your ride and the time on the road with some of your Minnesota Raider brothers was a blast!

I'd love to come down to Maggie Valley for the next rally and hope it works out.
To live on two wheels is to live a life in balance!

Tell your daughter to come spend an entire summer here.  There is no doubt in my mind that she will change her mind about needing warm riding gear in our climate...  :o

Rode today with the son-in-law and granddaughter on the V-star with sidecar. Temp was about +10F

Now if we went down south to AZ you would see near naked Alaskans going around dressed in bags of ice, even if the temps were only around 80.
