Today includes me (see above) but Ill add my shots from last week....






Got home today and took out the K4 and K2, topped up with gas, drained oil on both and replaced oil on the K4 (K2 is destined for an engine pull in prep for the 836cc head).

You know, I set the pic of mine and andy's bikes as my desktop background, but I think the green grips fried some of my pixels!  Grin

I rode yesterday (12/13) but didn't get a picture of the event. Guess I will just have to drag out the camera everytime now...   Grin

Still riding  Grin This morning it was 11F leaving the house...with wind chill it was -11F (checked at Boston.com upon arriving to work).

How did it feel? It was colder walking from the bike to work than it was riding  Wink

How was the bike? Better than ever. No clutch chudder - likely due to the fact it was hard to even engage the clutch  Wink But with the fairing there is very little wind on me.

Gear - Hein gericke winter goretex jacket - leaks like a sieve but is warm for dry cold weather. Heavy jumper and t-shirt underneath. neck gaitor. New untested Rev It Factory trousers with thermal leggings underneath. Gloves - Scott snowmobile gloves. Effect - toasty  Grin. After 4 miles the ends of the fingers were getting a little cold but nothing bad. Overall - glad I did it.

cheers

Some guys have a hard time letting go...  (disengage?)  How long is your walk form parking to indoors?
I'll wait for a relatively warm one, I should probably pull my battery though.

Man, it makes me cold just to read about riding this morning. That said, I'm going out later when it warms up to 25!

P.S. what the heck are thermal leggings, scottish long underwear?
