:D By the way Merry Christmas to all. :D Well Thusday I took my 650 in for it's 7500 mile service. This was proberly the coldest weather I've ever rode in.
It had snowed about an inch the night before. However the ground down here was still to warm, to stick very much. But the temps fell to 6 to 8 above zero that morining. :shock: I took the scoot over to my dealer on my lunch break. Temps had gone up to a warm 20 by the time I left. I guess i got a little taste of what you northerners ride in a lot. I'm telling ya, we aren't use to it down here. :toothy5: Well I finaly got across town & got lined out on the hi-way. :toothy5: Everthing was cool, until my face froze up. :sign7: Then I ducked down below my stock windshield & rode on foward. It was around 23 miles over to my dealer, so i did something that may have not been to smart. I brought the burg up to 90 mph & away we went. :toothy8: You know it wasn't as bad as i thought it would be. The burgman love the cold weather and ran great. :tongue1: My boss thiught i was crazy. One of my guys I work with,said you couldn't paid him to ride that day. :toothy8: I get it back sometime next week & temps are supose to be back in the 60's. I just might have to take my shirt off and go get it, That's getting quite warm :laughing6: .I wonder what the wind chill factor is at 20 degrees at 90mph. Or 81mph after speedo error. :laughing6:

Merry Christmas!

Your face froze?

Hi Doug,
Dig out some dollars. You are definitely missing some key wintertime accessories. I'm not talking about any heated stuff either. For winter scooting, the number one thing is a full face helmet. The next is a good leather jacket. Finally, you need a good pair of snowmobile gloves. SAMS has the FREERIDE gloves for $17. They are excellent! Oh, and as I would never wear chaps, thermal bottoms are icing on the cake. I know you already knew this, but it never hurts to repeat it for some other winter biker out there. God bless. :p
P.S. If you really plan to stay out this winter, upgrade the windshield.
