    I had a lot of fun.Heated vest with collar and grips made it comfortable, had to scrape ice off of the unheated saddle for the ride home in the middle of the night.  This bike is spoiling me. :152:

    You'er welcome!
    My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.

    Rode home from work at 11:30pm a few nights last week in the rain and temps in the low 50's with no heated clothing, just a good winter jacket and the V Stream windscreen and was warm and dry the whole trip home(about 40 mins.). Great aerodynamics on this bike, especially with the V-Stream windscreen. Cheers.

    This time of the year I often ride when the temps are in the 40s (F). I wear lined gloves, wool socks, a wool sweater, and a lined jacket. No issues for a several hour ride. The weather protection and heated grips are just sooooo gooooood.

    Karl, I find I'm soooo warm in my Warm and Safe Heated clothing [pants, jacket, socks and gloves] when the temperature drops in winter time. Not an issue now where coming into our summer down hear in Australia. In fact keeping cool will start to become an issue. Cheers.  :158:
