Gotta look around some.
Less than 53 I'm out. Heated gear is attractive and may actively looks for one of those vest thingys this season. I do have riding pants now so will be interesting when the temps drop. Gona be fun

When I was riding bicycles, 37 degrees was my cutoff, but its easier to stay warm on a bicycle than a motorcycle.

Not sure what my cutoff is on the scooter yet.

I guess my cutoff is -40. Never been on a motorcycle at that temperature but in a photographic survey plane with an open fuselage. All good until I had to remove my gloves to fix a film issue. My hands haven’t been the same since then.

I did enjoy riding my Ural in the snow last winter.

These are the good times, they're looking good so far,
jwaller is loving life, on his brand new KLR.
Got rid of the Ural, that nightmare now is over,
He'll probably get another one when H3LL freezes over.

Lots of opportunity for experience and I bet the seasoned folks would be willing to throw in some pointers along the way.

What do you guys consider non-rideable rain for this trip?

I don't mind riding in the rain unless its a very strong storm.

I usually make the rain call on the Thursday before. Scattered showers are OK to me, but I don't want to ride all day in rain.

Sometimes a little rain adds some excitement makes the stories better.

I second that. Some rain, mud, sand & water crossings make for a great adventure ride! Keeps the dust down too.

The last time I rode down there there was a light rain and it was enough to keep the heat and dust down but not enough to make the unpaved roads bad.

Wouldn't mind that again.

The last two day trip I did was just after some rain. Made the ride a little challenging and fun. I may camp and lampass but upon quick look at i didn’t find camping in town.

Ken, You and Mike can split a room at the cheap motel. Should only be 25 or 30 each
