Im at the frustrating part of the year, it will be in the 20s or low 30s F in the morning, too cold to ride to work, but it will hit 40 to 50 in the afternoon.
Riding in the cold is worse in the spring than in the fall. In the fall the air is dry, the streets are warm from the previous sunny day. 40F feels brisk but pleasant.
In the spring if its 40 the street (and ground) can still be frozen, the air is damp from the condensation, and it tends to drizzle a lot.
I managed to somewhat fix the clutch lever on Ursa the other day. The mechanism that holds it out and on and holds it in place is broke, so before I had to hold the knob pulled out for a good minute to let the bike warm up, and as soon as I let it go it sprung all the way in, and the engine was balky for the first mile down the road. Managed to put a few zip ties to hold it together, so much easier to start now, and the engine does not stall at the end of my driveway.
