Ya, some mornings now it is brass balls 6:15 am on the 404, and then sweat them off on the way home, like tonight. I layer as well. What a great year for riding though eh? Not good for my poor tomatoes though, or the grass. Heading to Algonquin with some work buddies to see the leaves on Friday.

Vee K7- no mods other than sheepskin and a Shad top box.

The leaves around Collingwood and the Beaver Valley were great this past weekend. Not at their peak yet but still spectacular views and riding.

Chilly here on the ride into work in the mornings also. Layer up and love my heated seat!:-D

I find myself stopping every hour to remove a layer of clothing. When I left this morning it was 7C, when I got back it was 25C. I enjoy riding at this time of year. It's refreshing in the early morning, and toasty in the afternoon. Riding season is coming to a close too quickly Enjoy it while it lasts

Refreshing indeed, it has been in the minus numbers most mornings here.

There is a hill near here that, when conditions are right, instantly produces frost on the mirrors on my car as you get to the top. On the Strom it also frosts the windscreen. There is a really cool pattern that forms around the Givi logo when it starts to dissipate. Kind of like wings.

I have a GIVI windsheild as well as a Madstad bracket.. when the windshield partially fogs up I am sure I see the same pattern you see.. a deep "V" formation if I recall correctly.. that follows the air streamlines on the windshield. It 's a pretty neat pattern!

In 45 minutes:

5.5 degrees C when I left home in Mount Albert, 21 when I arrived in Woodbridge.

Even in the first 10 minutes leaving home the cold dips were around 5 or 6 and the higher spots were 11 or so.
