I parked it today, it was below 40 when I left at oh dark 30 and decided it was a bit to chilly for the 40 or so miles into work. Had it out last night and it was COLD! We'll see how time goes later tonight, I have been meaning to get into a controlled lot and work on slow, controled turns. Taking it into work tomorrow for certain then Saturday we're going to an airshow... Man I hope the wife dosen't get too jealous...LOL

It's funny how we acclimate to our location. This year I started riding when the morning temp was above 20 (on the rare occasions that we didn't have snow), but I've been in northern Wisconsin for 24 years now. I never would have even considered it when I lived in New Jersey where I grew up, that would have been waaayyyy to cold for me then.

Well like I posted elsewhere, I wiped her down and then rode into work this morning. Now I'm counting the clock for the next 35 minutes to pass so I can ride home. The clock sure slows down when your bike is parked outside at work.
