Rode to work this morning.

I was brave and rode to work this morning. BRRRRRRRR cold ride in!!
I think the temp was 36 degrees, but supposed to be like 60 on the ride home. Does anyone make a gas tank heater, man my legs were cold, need to heat up that TANK!!!

Any way anyone else in Michigan ride in this morning??

Yep, rode into work Mon and today (rained Tue), and most every day this spring/summer/fall.
I don't mind rain on the way home, but won't do it on the way in.

You guys are out of your freaking minds. I'm in Lake County right now staying with my mom. It was so cold this morning there's no way I would have taken my bike anywhere (if I had it here with me, which I don't).

It was pretty cool on the way to work this AM, in fact I was pretty darn cold, but thats because most of my gear is warm weather gear, but it was probably 50 degrees, but with the wind chill and perfed A* Leather Jacket it's pretty frosty..

I need to invest in some non perfed leathers so I can stay a bit warmer but I will keep drafting SUV's to stay warm for now..

Rode to work this week on Mon, Wed, Thur & today. Monday was chilly, but since then it hasn't been too bad. Last week however, was much cooler. I need to do something about the hands (wind chill, b-r-r-r-r). Heated grips, that would be nice.

Dude, just ride!

I rode this morning (saturday) and no problems. Heated grips would be great...

The ride home was a different story, got caught in a downpour with a tinted visor after dark, ugh! Oh well, sure beats taking the cage. All my coworkers think im crazy. They just don't get it!

I ride my bike 5 days a week to work. Don't care if it rains or is cold, I have extra clothes at work to change in case of an emergency.

There are days in Fla when it's too cold to ride. The almost constant high humidity makes the cold feel colder.

Yea I'm going to ride in the morning to work it's supposed to be about 40 degrees. Atleast I will be awake when I get to work. The ride home should be decent tho about 60 degrees in the afternoon.
