be careful on those cold tires. smooth it out. i've already read 2 stories about people crashing on the first turn leaving work in the past 2 months.

It looks like you live in a Dr. Seuss world. What kind of tree is that?

i live in norcal and its pretty chilly now. I have a question though i was wondering about early this morning.

What temperature is ideal at running your bike? I usually wait for it to warm up a bit before doing much. Now that its cold my bike doesn't get much hotter 180. during the summer it'd reach 210 sometimes. what range is ideal? (like 160-180 maybe?)

also how long does it take your tires to warm up? like.... 10 miles? or what?

just wondering how to best run my bike in cold weather, does it run better in cold air?

It runs a tiny bit better in warm/cold weather than it does in hot weather because cold air compresses better than hot air. I usually take it easy for 5-10 minutes to let the tires warm up, some people like to zig zag to warm up their tires but i've never tried it.

In the summer the highest my bike got up to was around 230° F. Right now in the 40 degree weather the highest it got was around 205° F. I think on average my bike sticks around 180° F.

It's definitely getting cold. Well, colder than the past couple years. I welcome it, and I love to ride in the cold. Just wish my winter suit was here.

The weather we're having right now is WEIRD. It's been 60-70 degrees the past week ... it's 73 right now ... but we have a cold front coming in and it's supposed to start dropping around 5 tonight, lots of rain, freezing rain into the evening, 1/2 inch of ice with 6-8 inches of snow on top of that by tomorrow afternoon. I'm in a short sleeve shirt today and tomorrow it's supposed to be 16 degrees! NUTS!
