Re: Where is everyone?

Did Oklahoma 144 from Antlers to just south of Big Cedar at hiway 259 Christmas evening, In a manual transmission jeep, in the dark and in the fog.
It was so much fun I have to go back on the bike and hit that route again.
The map doesn't accurately depict all those great curves.

Re: Where is everyone?

Saw this Sportster at Raising Canes this morning. My Co-worker ride his new Road Glide in today. I'll ride tomorrow since it'll be dry. I have to admit, and he heated seats in the truck this morning sure were nice!

Re: Where is everyone?

I rode in this morning. It was a back and forth of opening the visor and freezing off my face then closing it to warm things up and fog up the visor.

Such a beautiful day. 17 when I left, 22 when I got back.
Nothing beats a sunny Sunday morning ride
No wonder we didn't see each other. I was coming back from Lubbock. It was 4 degrees when i left. Got to Dublin at about 4pm

Re: Where is everyone?

Rode the RX3 to breakfast yesterday morning. 18*F, no heated gear, no windshield. Walked 2 miles to get to the bike before the ride, too. Love those Hippo Hands--can't wait to get the heaters under the grips.

Where did you get your hippo hands?
Neither of my present bikes has proper hand protection for below 50 degree temps, even though the Strom has grip heaters.
Really cold weather is the one time I actually miss our K1200LT.

Re: Where is everyone?

On January 7th I broke my personal low temperature riding record at 22 degrees. I know, it isn't as low as some of you have done, but it is my personal record. I do have heated gloves and love them. Only had to go up to medium heat (three settings), so still have room for lower temps.

Re: Where is everyone?

I have no idea what my personal low temp while riding was, but I do remember there was a lot of white stuff on the ground, and the road leaving the light was actually frozen. The rear just spun with zero forward momentum for a few. Then I got going, and made it to work, more or less on time. It was an interesting day I'd rather not repeat.

Re: Where is everyone?

My personal best ( most idiotic? ) was -5f.
Back in the 70's, newlywed, 1 car and two incomes in opposite directions.
Did it on a Yamaha DT400E.
Glad it was under 3 miles.

Re: Where is everyone?

My lowest was 9deg, in '74, and found more traction in the bar ditches, than on refrozen road.
