Looks like a good old fashioned game of tug-of-war to me.

Ha! Thanks Redbud

I lost that fight. Simpson got on to me for not following his track, oops I didn't know.

Did Flux ever come up with a date for a Tellico trip?

I was so cold when I got home from riding yesterday, I think I might have damaged my internal organs! I've never had any heated gear, but I'm getting some. I determined that in the last hour of the ride. My buddies say the most important thing is a jacket liner. That your feet and hands tend to stay warmer when your core is warm? Today, I called Andrew at ACME. He's about to have a big sale on his heated gear - fyi.

Do any of you folks use heated gear?

Absofreakinlutly. Jacket really helps but your hands will be the next thing that gets cold. And if you are on the road all day you can count on your toes being next. I'm rocking warm and safe jacket, firstgear gloves from Andrew, and Gerbing insoles.

I haven't yet gotten into the heated gear, but I'm sure it would be nice. Still rocking just pants and jacket with liners, and a good pair of gloves with liners. About the only part of me that freezes is the tips of my fingers on my throttle hand. Doesn't matter what adjustments I make to the guard on that side I still get wind on the tips of my fingers.

These rides at 11 o clock at night are getting colder though...and the night time rides with the rain we had last week sucked.

Looks like I need to join the LC8 club, and go exploring with you guys. I have ridden very little in that part of the state. Riding the pig would be fun, if everyone were riding them.
