My sympathies! If you'd had goggles, would they have iced up too?

You're a better man than I. It's grey and drizzlely and I didn't ride because of that today.

Grey, drizzly and 50-ish here in Gainesville. That's hunker-down-inside weather for us ex-Yankees.

Gosh, we just got back from a ride. It was almost cold enough for us to put on shoes. The sandals
worked fine though.

The California coast doesn't suck.

Yeah, cold-weather riding on a bent really makes you appreciate the phrase "wind-chill": the reason
I ultimately got a full-face helmet, in fact.

The fairing in front seems to make it colder, too, as the wind whistles past and hits you about in
the middle of the forehead. Don't you find it a bit slippy in the slush/snow? My swb S&B is really
tippy, to the point that when there's snow, I revert to the icebike (mountainbike w/studded tires).
Cheers, & safe riding,
