Oh, it I only had a garage...but the shed will do for now. I did the routine checks on the back porch today, not because they were due, but because I wanted to do something. I had it out twice last weekend, hoping to ride tomorrow and over the weekend, too. I tested out some insulated ski pants that I bought and now I know I can lower my temperature limit a bit.

North Texas here. Rainy, but ride to work every day.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving in a pretty & well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, totally worn out & proclaiming, "Wow, what a ride!"

Taking the car for the second day in a row. The temperatures arenít low enough to prevent me from riding but I just donít like getting the bike dirty if I can avoid it. Looking forward to Friday though. 72 degrees and 0% chance of rain!

Still riding in Chattanooga, TN. 50 and pouring rain here, if I'm going somewhere, I'm riding. 26 is the coldest it's gotten, but I'm young and dumb, so it's no big deal. :]

Still riding here. Low 20's when leaving for work, just dress in layers and wear a FF helmet and it all goes ok. It'll be really good when gas moves to $4+ per gallon later this year.

Currently as long as temps are above freezing I ride. Waiting on an order for Gerbing T5 gloves to come in through a local dealer to hopefully eliminate the 32 degree barrier (not that I can't ride below that but 45 minutes on the highway and going in an out of valleys along the way take a major toll on the hands).
