Dave Dragon rides on one of coldest days

It's reported that our Dave Dragon took a ride on one of the coldest days here in the Southeast....

BTW, there are no secrets in a small town... Chattanooga included.

Hope you had a great ride..

Rick has me beat. It was a balmy 16 in Greenville on my way to work on the LT Thursday.

Re: Dave Dragon rides on one of coldest days

9F here in WNC Fri and Sat. Rode some both days. People call me stupid, crazy, etc., until I tell them my coldest was -10F in MN.

The best part for the last 2 days was my winter jacket was in the shop for a new zipper. Only wore a Gerbings and a fleece lined work jacket plus associated lower gear. Didn't have the nerve to head up into the mountains though. Besides, I haven't treated the undercarriage with anti corrosion spray this year.

Cold as the proverbial Witch's Teat, but the heat was flowing from the GL and with the Gerbings on Broil, I had a great ride, grinning ear to ear.
Heard that you flew in on a wing and left riding a wing...
