Yeah. My helmet still allowed a ton of air in so my face got cold lol. I wore full gauntlets so my hands were ok.

Re: 48F temp.

I'd ride that shit. We are talking about Ryan right?

RIP Matt (Ghost R6). You will be greatly missed. Be smooth and the rubber turning till we meet again.

Re: 48F temp.

Bunch of pussies... I ride until the high temps for the day only get to 40*. I usually end up riding back from school in the middle of the night, and my lowest temp this year has been 20* (which was miserable).


Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE

Re: 48F temp.

Awww come on 48 isn't that cold... you do have to dress for it though otherwise you will get cold. Either lots of layers or get some heated stuff. Some heated grips at least will work wonders, but a heated jacket liner will get you spoiled in no time, lol


I'm not gonna lie this was pretty cold.... 350 mile ride from central Illinois to Columbus, OH Dec 2008. This was the highest temp I saw the whole day... it was 15 when I got to Columbus. Didn't have my heated jacket at the time either just lots and lots of layers... heated grips were a lifesaver though. Only thing that really kept getting cold was my feet



And who needs dry roads anyways... blah!




Seriously though, invest in some heated gear, once you ride in it you'll never go back. Riding in the colder temps becomes not so bad after all! Oh and get a PinLok visor for your helmet too to keep the shield fog free
