Re: Winter Riding
I must admit, this is a rather untimely question considering that it's July. Anyway, yes, I ride year round...just outside of Chicago. I don't ride when there's ice however, or threat of snow. I don't wear heated gear either.....just my Olympia AST jacket and Olympia Ranger pants...and I wear the liners for both when the temps are below 35 or so. If it's really cold, I might don a balaclava under my full faced helmet to keep drafts off my neck. I fire up that heated seat and heat grips, and I'm usually just fine...down to about 19 degrees F (the coldest I've ridden in). My commute is only 50 minutes. If I were to ride longer than that, I might consider heated gear, but I've not had a problem.
I wish I could think of clever things to say in my signature.
