Nowadays I draw the line at about 25 degrees as I fear the black ice and don't like feeling like the Michelin man when trying to get on one bike.
Probably around zero or a little lower when I was living in Lynchburg. Daily commute was 12 miles to GE and my riding gear consisted of blue jeans and an old Army field jacket. That was on my 305 scrambler. Those were bubble shield days and my beard would freeze to the inside of the shield.
