Looking at the forecast, probably will just day trip it on Saturday. I don't handle the cold too well yet, especially with no "real" winter gear (I relocated from Vegas) or electrics on the bike yet. That's why the CRF is still at <300mi even though I bought it two weeks after I got here in Nov.

Pants and jacket are good, but boots and gloves are not waterproof.

I think the cold isn't as bad as the cool/wet.
Might day trip it myself...

You're only about an hour from passing through Harrisonburg. I can hook you up with a heated vest if you're interested. I won't need it this weekend, working.
