I'm in south central Texas when the temps drop into the 50's I'm done riding. LOL
No, seriously 70 is for high temperatures. 50 is for that cold weather shit.

OUCH that KLOTZ is pricey. If I were to run that I'm afraid I would cut back on my oil change frequency. I don't run an oil filter so I change oil frequently. Maybe installing a filter and going to KLOTZ 70 would work out cheaper in the long run. Something to look into.
