Ha. It's cold here too but I put on my coat,gloves and my Nacho Libre mask and I'm toasty riding to the grocery store.
VanYesterday they had watersouts on the water about halfway between me and Denny (he's about 80 miles south). I guess one lasted for about 5 minutes, and reached from the ocean up at least to the cloud cover (3,500'). That would have been cool to see. This morning when I got up it was -6 (f) outside. I left the bikes at home. The subaru barely started, so I took it to the shop and put Mobil One in it. In the past, I've experimented with letting various kinds of oil sit outside for a few days at -30. Mobil One is the only one I've found that doesn't start flowing like honey. I'm testing some other synthetics right now (though it's not Really Cold). Not all synthetics are created equal.
