    My ride back in 1976 (Honda CR125)



    And now I ride an even older bike. 1975 Kawasaki 500 triple. All these years later, it still feels fast 0-85 mph or so, but the best part is the huge cloud of blue smoke you leave everyone in, and the whine of the 2 stroke coming on the pipe. Now THATS a tone to my ears that not even a PRS into a Dumble can touch.

    You can probably get away with it on your bike as long as you have some good riding gear.
    Have to take a rain check, my weekends fill up and short notice day long solo ventures don't sit well with the family. We will for sure get a ride in soon though. Maybe a quick ride down the road to Harry's for a burger?

    I draw the line at 25 degrees Fahrenheit these days. I've ridden in colder but it seems to me that 25 degrees is that magic number where things really begin to get exponentially bad for both rider and machine. It's kinda like the motorcycle equivelent of what mountain climbers call "the death zone" when they try to climb Mt. Everest. Yeah you can ride in colder temperatures than 25 but there is so much more that can go horribly wrong.

    I've never really worried about my bike in the cold...Its really road conditions etc. A lot of my friends have heated gear that they just power off the bike's alternator.
    But to your point, its really about the road conditions more than anything, (assuming you have the riding gear/weather protection ot stay warm)

    In the winter when I do ride, I do change my riding style a LOT..no carving corners and back roads if avoidable.
    I turn like a car and stay on main roads, they will be cleaner and wamer due to traffic.

    I'm about with you there... Diminishing returns. I don't do the heated gear thing (but I'm fine in chaps & layers anyway).

    I think my big thing is salt... Once they start spreading salt, I'm pretty much done until it rains a bit.

    I have to admit though -- I sort of get off on riding around in December cranking the holiday stuff on the stereo and just sort of nodding my head at stoplights. The looks you get from kids in minivans is precious. I'd actually love to do that in a Santa suit and have some candy-canes handy...

    I saw a dude around here riding last year with a Santa Suit and the bike all done up like a sleigh. The sight of stuff like that is always good for a grin or chuckle from all who see such a spectacle.

    Remember the "Santa Sleigh" bike from Orange County Choppers Tv show?
    I took a ride to their store once and saw it up close...Jesus the thing was 18 feet long! (exagerate a little ;-)

    I have a picture of it somewhere at home.
