I've done the cold weather ride...
I lived in Taunton at the time and was working in Waltham (about 45 miles one way).
I remember one chilly February morning when I had to ride in because the cage was acting up. It was 25 degrees when I left home (with the promise of upper 50's in the PM) and was kinda cloudy. I hit Walpole, and it was snowing, stopped by the time I hit Rt. 128/95 in Dedham. Yeah, I got lotsa funny looks too...
I was kinda chilly when I got to work. I had on thick(er) black jeans, a sweater, my leather jacket, a half helmet with the storm flaps zipped in, and heavy gloves (with my running gloves on as inserts). The only thing that really didn't work well when I got to work was my knees...they were cold and stiff and I nearly dropped my bike backing it into a spot.
It was still awesome!!!!
