Yesterday's commute in to work was in the coldest temperatures so far this Fall riding season.
The thermometer on Brigitta, my '87 R80 Beemer read 25.7 °F and at the fastest portion of my commute, Colfax Avenue, I am usually going about 65-70 MPH.
The windchill calculator I use, tells me I was at 2.84 °F during this time, and I must admit it felt pretty cold on my hands.
You see, even though I had my deerskin, thinsulate lined, gauntlet gloves on....I had discovered my heated grips weren't working that morning. (Turned out to be a loose connection at the switch).
Easy fix and I am glad the ride to work is only 12 miles or so.
And yet, it beats driving a cage, oh and the ride in today was in the low 40s but those heated grips felt really nice. : )
I think we caught it in time
