    Default too cold too ride

    all's I can say is WOW its cold outside!!! finally have enough snow to ride and now some brutal cold to go with it. weather pattern looks the same for the next 7-10 days here in the north east. I love riding but not in negative degree stuff. wouldn't have thought twice in my younger years. wonder how many still ride when its like this?

    We just put 2 days of riding with negative to single digit temps. Wasn’t bad but it does take its toll on ya. No matter how good your gear is it still gets ya after a hundred plus mile days!

    kudo's to you super1c!!! wish I could do it.i'd love a 100 mile trip. been waiting for too long. this weather looks to be around for along time. i'd settle for a 20 degree temp now! I have a fresh motor to break in too so really need more normal temps fearing a lean condition I'm not jetted for.

    not enough snow here yet to ride but if there would have been i would have been out. ridden in -30 before and will again. just where and how i ride changes. when it is that cold out i stay in the trees as there is less wind and warmer to ride.

    Just got back from a 5 day trip up north, -47c with the windchill. none of the 4 stroke sleds would start, but my 700 Red Head would!
    a wise man from canada once told me
    "there are only 2 types of sleds. 2 STROKES and 4 JOKES" !!!
