Rode the bike three days straight...it was cold, but so aweet....hurry up spring!
yeah, 28 degrees first thing in the morning is no fun. especially when you live as far south as i do. sheesh. made me wish for a fairing bigger than the little thing on the front of my S4.

in my area, the cold weather is starting to break. the past 3 days of 55+, but the next 4 days, rain. gay!
You're from Finland? Sweden perhaps?..... It's bike season now here in Denmark :)
I've seen a few riders(including myself!)ride the "cold gauntlet".

It is alleged that there are windscreens that will directly replace the lil one that is on the bikini fairing. It sits up just enough to cut the air and over your head. It may help!

it's not the air hitting my helmet that was the problem. lol. let's just say, it was nice getting off the bike and getting blood flow back to certain parts of the body. i like the naked look of the Monster, i wouldn't want to ruin it with full fairings, but on rides like that, getting the wind around you would be nice. i guess i'll just have to buy a cruiser with full fairings like a Moto Guzzi California.

just got out for the first time this season. Gas run. It was 37 out and my new Scorpion Deuce pants were one of the warmest parts of my body. I would be happy to rip to work in 20 degree weather as soon as they get the $#!t off the roads from this winter that will never end!

We got out (Cincy) last weekend. You're right it was frickin cold, but it was nice to get out and ride instead of just dreaming about it. Commmon warm weather!
