Wouldn't you say the mission of the KZP and the BMW are different? The BMW less suited to the urban/suburban mission and the KZP less to the interstate mission? Personally, my KZP feels solid up to...

It looks stupid... but I enjoy it. If it's between 15 and 20 degrees, I'll usually be down to just a turtleneck after I run patterns for 20 min. Below 15, the jacket or sweat shirt probably stays on...
