I don't even start using the choke until -8* C. You'll be fine.

Even the bike across the street is embarassed. It looks like it is pretending to be a pedestrian and walking away.

Maybe the Norton is in that window because it needed a night job.I'll bet that it's day job is as a bouncer at some Denver Hooligan bar or a wrench at an obscure British bike garage....or maybe the store owner is a smart guy who bought the Norton and is writing off the coast as a business expense.

I think a scantily clad manikin also drapped over the Norton would make it right
