    I rode to work anyway. Not at all cold, even had to turn the grip heaters down at one point as my hands were getting hot. I left the electric vest powered the entire ride though

    Traction kinda sucked

    tried to ride to work this morning

    This temp is well within my comfort range but I haven't felt like riding (or bicycling) all week. Guess I just did enough of it last month that I don't feel like it. Plus I'd basically be riding my bike for 5 minutes to get to work and then letting it sit in the rain in the parking lot all day. Might as well just let it sit in the garage nice and dry.

    On the positive side, the rain is cleaning up the roads.

    Good point. My PFM iron rotors (bad idea, don't do it) are getting all rusty on my Concours.
