What a difference a day makes up here in MN

Saturday, temps rose to 69 degrees here and the wife and I spent hours out enjoying it! We just couldn't seem to quit for the day. I would yell to her, more? She would nod and another hour ticked by.

This morning, back to reality, it 20, windy and snowing! I'm still thankful for Saturday, it's not every year you can be riding in a light jacket on November 10th in MN!

N. TX was @ 34F this morning, but it was dry; so I rode in.

Tomorrow's forecast is 27F; I think I will be a cager for a day or two.

Just take it as it comes and enjoy it! I usually draw the line at 40*F (it was 27*F this AM).........have gear to ride when it's colder............just seems too much like work!

Can't you put a fence or something up to contain that cold air a little better? A bunch of it spilled out into my back yard (Tennessee) and I'm looking at 29 degrees in the morning! I'm not riding in that, not sure I will be able to get out of bed!

Nice one, Jeff. I'm glad you had the chance to enjoy the day riding with your wife. Awesome. It might be a while before you get the opportunity again!

The weather is getting colder here in the borderland. A buddy of mine rode into work this morning and an hour later couldn't feel his hands still! with temps hitting the 30's I'll need to find one of those heated gloves and jacket combos. Anyone know of any good ones?
