Grind: 30 degrees should be a piece of cake, think "layers" for warth and a good windbreak top layer. Perry's darling Lorie thinks 30 degrees is still summer!!

I managed 35 this morning, piece of cake. Worst part for me was the windshield fogging up.

Yeah, I rode to work last Saturday at 28 degrees. I just need better gloves and something around my neck. Other than that I was fine.

Mac; Been too long, would have called you prior to the last trip down but only had four days. Drove the first day rode two days,( found some
REAL interesting roads), drove back the fourth day. And good for you on the 35 degree weather, that must be pretty damn cold down there for you. I found that -20 is about as much as I care to tackle, just isn't much fun at that level. You ride safe and thanks again for your guidance on our Forum Gap run. Wishing you and yours the very best as we enter holiday season.

Yeah Greg, we both wanted to detour but the bikes ran their own way towards home, W T F ? Maybe drop down through WV after Pa, coming back up from Ok after Ont, or did I miss somewhere?
