Maybe not “crazy” per se there Les, but DEFINITELY not right in the head to be sure! 😁On the January 19, 2019 I left Houston and is was 32 degrees, rode 300 miles to just this side of Abilene and was 22 degrees when I got there. So six hours of sub freezing temperatures. I did ride back two days later, got up to 40.

When I got there:
Does that make me crazy?
I feel your pain! I’m gonna be passing by your area Saturday around 11am on my way to Louisville, Tennessee.We ride no matter the temp honestly, only the rain or if we froze the night before will we stay in.
With that being said; it's our first Winter riding and yet to have real gear and failed at almost everything we've bought as we still freeze our butts off.
Being in Texas really isn't the greatest gift at times, we left last Sunday at 67° on a trip only to come back home at 34° on the back leg. I was still freezing the following morning lol
That's how I look at it. I'm originally from upstate NY but live in NC now. As long as the roads are dry and the wind isn't too bad I'll just put my layers on and ride. Not much different.A few years ago I bought a new bike in February. Dying to drive it, I put on my snowmobile suit and drove about 20 miles on dry roads. Wasn't much different than snowmobiling.
