    OK no need for close up ball pictures literally. We get it. Other places for that

    Ive often been cold. This one is memorable. We ride on studs in the snow/ice. Good fun. But at this point the ice broke from underneath the bikes and started to sink into the river. Me and my buddy got both soaking wet up to our waists. Yes I still had time/energy to snap this photo. Had to be as quick as possible to get out of the riverflow.

    Super cold outside, pink arctic sun setting and time was against us. Long story short - we ma 484E4F73-0E4B-4525-B1FA-5C68C3E39E2E.jpeg naged to escape this one but we literally had our balls frozen. It was potentially dangerous situation. When we got back to civilization we could not get the boots/pants/kneebraces off for around 30 minutes. All frozen solid. But we survived. And very likely dump enought to continue our winter riding

    Not as cold as yours, but didn't expect this in October in Georgia.

    It was a small rally around the Chama, NM area. Most of us were on dirt bikes and related gear. Here comes a freak snowstorm blowing snow sideways.
    Holy moly it was cold!!! The guy in the pic was ready with heated grips and good gloves. He actually allowed another rider to borrow some gloves
    while his hands were nice and toasty. The guy up front on the right was trying to warm his hands on the exhaust pipe..... it was rough.

    My partner 2 weeks ago, was -11 Celsius. She had to ride with her visor up as it kept freezing over.

    Me in 1978 , about to set off. Had to ride 60 miles home from my Dad's house , Kent coast to London , at night too.
    Just got colder and colder , the riding gear in those days was not good - open face helmets were still the thing !

    found a shed luckily. flyscreen didn´t help very much.
    was slippery, very cold and the road was closed after we passed.
    unforgetable ride. balls fell off after stripping the pants. P5222658.JPG

    Although this pic looks all majestic and pretty, I had to get off and try to move around and warm up. Gerbings cranked all the way. IMG_0507.JPG Somewhere on the Million dollar hwy, Co..
