yeh with the windchill and all it kinda feels like the 40s. Makes your nose run.

When its bad I slip on a light silk jacket under my leather jacket. works like magic

Another thing you can do is go to or find a Scubadiving place and buy a pull over thin lycra suit. Usually .5mm type thing that keeps out te chill and helps maintain body heat.

I did the wetsuit thing...put it on under my leathers and went out in near-freezing weather....nearly sweated to death. Its like being wrapped in cellophane, 0 airflow at all, and your body heat gets it plenty hot in there, the wind has no chance of getting thru

Re: Cold Weather Riding tips

That's great to know. Maybe I can use this trick to cover my knees to keep them warm

Re: Cold Weather Riding tips

Electrics. I have gloves, jacket liner, pant liners. 20 degrees, 5 hours, 10 hours, no problem.

Re: Cold Weather Riding tips

I dont know how thick a wetsuit type material you can stick under the leathers but I know the lycra material has both shirts and pants as well as a body suit and are thin as anything almost like a tshirt but its silky and helps maintain body heat. I used to use this trick when I used to snowboard If anyone know the thickness of the wetsuit (if was indeed a wetsuit) let me know.

Re: Cold Weather Riding tips

The god awful signs of winter coming upon some of us & forcing us to put the bikes away for some 4 months ----- what a bummer of a thought. Right now it would be ride in light gear as it is ANOTHER hot Autumn day (Indian Summer), but I will be at the h/gun range running it as I do every Sunday & leave Sundays for the working stiffs, but the past week have been a fantastice Monday to Saturday riding weather with lighter then normal gear.
