    Should have never admitted to having cold feet or that you find it uncomfortable man. Admitting weakness in this forum is like bleeding in a pool of sharks. Nothing but He men around these parts. LOL.

    I would like to jump on my bike with a little less gear , it gets to be work going for a ride . I have adopted the All The Gear All The Time and ended up with an Aerostitch Roadcrafter 1 piece suit and Sidi Gortex Adventure boots , I'm dressed in about 2 minutes tops . I won't take the chance , I heel too slow these days .

    Little update.
    Bought vstrom 1000. sorry my s-tenere brethren.. Its has heated grips/luggage / engine guard.. still more economical then naked s-10... I will buy tenere next year I think..
    I also did experimenting riding in cold weather with no gear on... its has no air flow on knees.. minimal air flow on feet.. But a gust on mid shin.
    I got cold again :) lolzzz
    Now I ordered forma height boots.. so I think i am set for 5C/40F like temperature..

    I have proven my man-ness to myself.. in combat sports enough.. so don't care so much... I can also appreciate data from non-data. so This thread even with funny comment was very helpful.
    And even in the motorcycle world the toughest and long lasting and far-far reaching riders are the ones.. who take care.. and pay respect to elements. Not the other 'tough' ones...just like sports you need to have respect for what you are against otherwise you are in for big surprise.

    I went with the same ride for the same reasons back in October. I also had it down to this or the S10. The 1000 XTA is a great value. Enjoy.

    With the right gear, you'll be comfortable below 40*.

    Wireless bluetooth(or remote operated) re-chargeable heated insoles. I bought some for ice fishing in Manitoba and they also work perfect on the bike. Having waterproof gore tex riding boots is also a goid idea.
