heated clothing and huge huge balls (I was gonna say brass balls but they'd be cold)

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: yahoo riding in 15 degree weather.....

when you don't have a car, and you really need to go somewhere....

That or it's a new rider. I rode my 98F3 well into Nov. before.

Be fast or be last.

The latter would be my guess. I rode my first bike when it was obscenely cold.

These days, if it's not 60 or better, I don't venture out on two wheels unless I'm riding through weather on a road trip.

Re: yahoo riding in 15 degree weather.....

I guess I can say I rode me zx6r 12 months of the year but from nov throught he middle of march just on unusually warm days. not doing that with the blade though, its on stands and its gonna stay on them till its warm. all the levers and pegs are off now so I even if I wanted to ride I'd have to put them back together and back on.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.
