You need to get yourself some heated gear. guitarhack and I headed to Georgia on that Sunday and I think it got up to 46 degrees. I was warm and toasty.

Ouch, 17's a little brisk. I try to plan on it at least being above freezing, some places on the roads around here are almost always wet. Doesn't always work out that way though.
Talking to a couple of the :ymcariders at the station this week about the virtues of full face helmets in cold weather:
"I'd never wear one of those..."
Me:"Oh, I see, You're a MC owner..."
Always funny to me how few of them get that. Every once in a while one will though.

that was my high that day also. 46 deg by 2pm. I was over half way home. Do plan on installing heated grips in the next few weeks. 40 deg is now my cut off temp. Roads here are always wet or frozen in the valleys below that.

You just better hope if you do that no one decides that you're an insufferable shitwhistle.

I'd just like to remind everybody that September is the month that the humidity breaks and the temps cool off. The later in the month the better the weather for camping, plus the bugs aren't so bad.

I don't think that would happen to him. He could join in the Who's Awake thread though.
