These days temp around -10 to -5 celsious. Not that bad at all, we've seen lot worse in the past weeks.

I wear skipants, they're rainproof, windproof, kinda breathable, and dryes up in 5 min. Once your're of the road, you get warm wery quick.

I dont complain about the weather, I love it. I commute dayly on my bikes. Often its my little yamaha dt 175 that gets pulled out first. Easy to maneuavre around, and nut too many horses to handle :)

Hey Jens, since you commute on your bikes this time of year, how do you prep the tires? Studs?

No studs or anything. Snow aint bad at all, its kinda like loose moist dirt.

But when it turns to ice, its an other story, but I can still ride faster than the cars. I live in Denmark, and they're pretty good at salting the roads, so no big issue for me with the knobbie tires :)

I think you just get used to it. Often we have allmost no snow, but theres been a lot the last 2 months.

Thumb Whoo Hoo! Another red, white and gold!

As long as your battery is good, I'd give the heated grips a try. I don't run a battery in my kicker.

Mind if I ask, how do you do that, and get away with the signals, horn, that kinda thing working?? Or do you just ride offroad?

Horn weighs too much also. GONE. My horn is the middle finger or a fist. Everything else works while the motor runs. I have mini stalk turn signals too, around 10W instead of 23W each.

WB electrolytic capacitor instead of a battery. It dims a bit when braking and using the signals, but. No citations yet after 10 years of street legalness.

Turn signal switch cover gone!

Looked down on the ride home yesterday and realized the black plastic knob/lever came off my turn signal switch. Only the little metal lever remains.

Anyone know where I can find just the black plastic switch lever cover?
