20 degrees is my limit... until I get geared up a little better. Leather over fleece makes for fairly comfortable riding. I'm still having trouble keeping my hands warm though.

Dyna, I pull the face shield down when the temp falls below 35. And I usually wear a mask too.

I had to deal with a leaking water main on my way to work for a while, that ice is scary.

I ride in all types of weather. You can dress for the cold I find when it gets over 100 its worse then the cold , They frown on takeing to much off...
