On October 17 four of us rode out of Columbus Ohio headed for Biketoberfest in Florida. When we left it was about 38 or 39 degrees at 6:30 AM. The three guys on HD's had their heated gear on and were all toasty warm. Myself riding my RS
I have no heated gear and was wearing long john bottoms on with jeans and full chaps and my upper half had long sleeve shirt with another shirt over, a hoodie, leather coat and leather vest over that. On my head was a stocking ski mask with half helmet and my large gauntlet gloves for my hands.
Not going to say I wasn't cold because I was for sure but when the sun started coming up as we were going through West Virginia the ride was getting better and I knew I was headed for better climate weather.
The ride home was also an experience in it self. We rolled off of the hotel parking lot on Ormand Beach at 5:00 AM and iron butt it home to Columbus Ohio and parked my bike in the shed at just a little past 10:00 PM.
