Did a little cool weather testing. Nothing like a refreshing, 40 mile, fall ride.

Nice! I would probably have ridden today too, but I have to draw the line at snow and ice on the roadways. I'm sure I'll be out next week when temps are back up into the high 40's to low 50's (F).

Hey Haymaker.... I think that sign is missing the C after the temp. Ha ha! Once I get some heated gear and dry, ice free roads I'll be out in those temps as well.

I WISH!

You'd be amazed how little it takes to survive a 20 mile stretch at these temps. I'm using a Joe Rocket adventure type jacket that I wear year round with a lined shammy, t-shirt, and thermal undershirt. Bandanna to protect neck and chin, along with stop airflow around the collar. I have an extra pair of jeans one size too big, thermal underpants (only worn below 20f) and my regular year 'round Alpinstars waterproof boots. Down to 25f I wear Alpinstars wet weather gloves, below that I go over to a pair of goretex snowmobile gloves.

That said, at 12f, it my work was 25 miles away instead of 20, the game would change drastically. My fingertips suffer the last 5 miles when at my record of 6f. At those temps, I can feel the difference in one or two degrees and am hoping the much better heated grips and handguards of the 800 over my Ninja are going to allow me to push a little further.

Start out slowly, with just a vest or jacket, then add other items later. Sounds like you'd get a lot of use out of the stuff. With Gerbings you'll most likely have it forever. It may become outdated but it will still work. My dad has had the same stuff for about 10 years now and it still works like day one.

Gotta buy it now, can't let that power port on the Tiger go waste.
