Yeah, as long as it's not storming (the next 4 DAYS) ... I'm riding. It's not really any colder on the Peninsula or in SF in August most of the time then it is in November so why not.

When I was stationed on Treasure Island (going to Electronics school) I had no transportation except my Honda 305 Superhawk, so I rode it year round. I'll admit that it did get pretty chilly sometimes.

Yeah, it gets kinda chilly. The wife and I recently moved back to the SFBA from St. Louis. I rode there unless there was snow/ice on the ground so the chill here while it is something makes me feel like a wuss if I complain at all about it. There is nothing like a ride on a clear day with temps in the teens. It doesn't put hair on ones chest so much as freeze it off.

Try snow
Yeah, I thought I was ahead of the storm; turned out the bridge was washed out...by the time I back-tracked & got back on the main highway (108), the storm had caught up with me. By the time I hit 3,000 ft. elevation, it was snowing. Fortunately, it was really dry snow & I only had a few more miles to go (plus another 1,000 ft. elevation gain). (Good story but only need to experience it once...so I live with the cold but try to avoid ice and snow

If anyone is interested the NorCal Triumph Riders and Friends will be making their Polar Bear Ride on either 9 or 10 Feb. It will begin in Stockton. Check their web site http://norcalrat.com/ or contact me for details as we get closer to the ride date.

That's one of our main stomping grounds. Mostly in the winter as it gets wicked hot in the summer and the po-po presence is much higher. So we head to the coast!!

If you see us out there stop and say hey! Me = Red Thruxton or Black/Silver Monster, My wingman = Silver Bonne or Blue speed Triple....

I think our group did meet you out there last summer. Me on a Triumph America, Dave on a Black Rocket 3, Big Mike on his Red Goldwing. We were stopped at a parking lot and you and your buddy also stopped. You were on your Thruston, and I don't remember what your buddy was riding.
