Not quite as nuts as the guy we saw a couple years ago riding a springer down I35 in a snowstorm in MN, but...still nuts. Probably frozen nuts. :cold:
With enough profanity, you can accomplish anything.

While technically winter riding, I went out on Saturday just because I could. Thank the Almighty for the hand grip warmers. It was interesting, really different on the new one from the old one. I can feel additional resistance to turning, so that will be interresting. Also discovered the guy who had it before me must have had insanely long fingers b/c the levers were pointed way too low for me. The shifter was pretty darn low too. All easy fixes though!

It was fun to be out, even got a wave from an HD guy who was braving the weather with his SO.
Shitty planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine.

I'll say it. There is a limit to my love of riding, and 42F is that limit. Even with hand warmers.
