    Here in Iowa, temperatures reached in the low 60's and that was all the excuse I needed.  Here's a short video...more to come

    Hoping to get mine out of the storage locker tomorrow, it promises to be over 50 here in the Chicago area and over 60 on Sunday.

    Do you speak with the Fahrenheit scale ???

    According to the formula would it be something like that?

    Formula:

    (60 ° F - 32) × 5/9 = 15,556 ° C.

    If so, it would be an approximate temperature at what we have here today.

    In the US where weather is concerned it would generally be Fahrenheit.

    iowabikerider. Good to see the Trophy's out from winter hibernation. Another nice video of your latest ride. The only thing I don't have to deal with, in winter, is icy roads, only when I venture into "the high country" [mountain region]. I ride year round and where I live the winter temperature, down to 0 degrees fahrenheit or lower, can be made bearable by wearing my Warm and Safe heated clothing. Always good to see your ride videos.  :821: :158:

    Thanks for the reply Hackle!

    There are times when I wished I had bought the Trophy version with heated seats and hand grips but generally, I have winter riding gear that does a fairly good job of keeping the cold out.

    It is easy enough to add the heated grips kit to your Trophy, if they are still available.
    I don’t think it took me more than an hour or two to install on mine...
