Lately I rode pretty much in slight frost (like -2-3C), but yesterday I met my limit. I went to Budapest and at the beginning of the way back the battery failed me I could only bump start Teresa with some help from a tourist and it's not as easy to do as it is with a 250cc twin. When I finally could leave I was soaking wet with sweat under my gear so the wind chilled me more than anytime before. Today I feel every bit of mine and probably have a light fever. I'll definitely take a nice hot bath when I finish work for today...
Average of this tank (3.1l/100km ~ 75.8mpgUS) became better than my other winter periods, though. lately I often drove slower than before because of the cold wind, and even though I couldn't shift into 5th this way (I'd need to go at least at 70km/h~45mph to do so) the lower aero drag more than makes up for the shorter gear ratio.
Temp. was near the 70's today, though it was cloudy in the morning, the afternoon got much better. Roads are still covered with gravel and lots of melting snow cause water run-offs across the entertaining twisty roads.
I too am really ready for the non-frosty mornings to arrive. Having been down on the ice and having paid for the parts and time I'm money ahead just waiting until the better weather arrives. 9 month rider and proud of it.
