I spent an hour getting my gear ready last night, to prove how tough I am
by riding this morning, 26 degrees and blowing. And an hour long commute.

I think instead I'll prove that I don't need to prove anything, and ride in the nice warm car.

Besides, people in Texas don't turn off their sprinklers in the winter... (excuses, excuses ..)

I know, I'll take my wife's Corvette, that'll make me feel less wimpy.

Heck, I just looked at the weather radar in Dallas. If I lived there I wouldn't even leave the house<g>

Yeah, I just got clear and cold, perfectly dry and not even blowing as much as it was earlier.
I got no good excuse, Just wimpy.

Hey some times even tough guys say screw it and hop in the cage. Below 32f is a good reason in my book to take the cage.

I got my first Harley about 1 month ago. I got to ride it over thanksgiving, one day a few weeks before that but really only to go get it titled and plated, and it has sat since then. It's killing me!!
But they are talking about 50 on sunday so I oughta be able to get it out ONE MORE TIME before the winter temps really set in. I AM STOKED that I can get one more day to ride it before it goes up for the season.
I purchased FBI true duals, a Power Commander, and a bunch of accessories so I will really not know much about what it rode like as "stock" when I got it ...only how it runs in the spring with all the new stuff installed.
Thats ok though...as long as it gets warm someday....prolly 3+ months from now! I hate to think of it that way.

You don't need to prove anything to me Nathan.

As a matter of fact, her Corvette does have booty warmers.
I didn't take it anyway. I got the same engine with a 6 spd in my car, so it's easier the do manly things with it.

I rode today. Eventually it got to 54 degrees and bright sunshine. It was the 40 mph wind gust that got to be a pain.

Wore the Gerbing gloves on the way in (27F), plugged in, and the Lux glam gloves (iKon) with HD liners on the way home (48F).
