Low 40s, but still a nice 150 miles on the V85TT
« on: November 19, 2022, 08:03:23 PM »
The heated grips did their job. I felt some coolness across the top of my thighs, the tips of my fingers, and my toes.

Nice ride and met some friends for lunch.

Always good to be able to get out for a short ride this time of year.

I forgot to take a photo before starting to eat. Gibson is credited with creating a white sauce for chicken and won awards with it so I ordered a 1/2 chicken, no sides.

Thanks for the tip.  I was wearing "Starter" long johns, and my Tourmaster Venture pants with quilted liner installed.  The V85TT has an airflow around the tank that puts a lot of wind across the top of the thighs.

These are the wind blocking insulated pants I have......and they are on sale! Really good product. I also have the neck gaiter, the Sir Lancelot looking balaclava (mine is silver), and the boot liners.
