Coldest Thermometer Reading?

Last night I picked up my DL1000 from my dealer after he did the recall and fixed my clutch dragging issue. It was either 9 or 10f (-12 or -13 c.)
Here is what the temperature readout said:
I didn't notice when it went from reading a temperature to reading "lo".
..Tom

My Opinion:
Vee or V= DL1000 before 2014
Vee2 or V2 = DL1000 2015 to 2019
Vee3 or V3 = DL1050 2020 to?

My Stroms:
2006 DL650: 202,000 km 125,500 miles, Sold
2012 DL650 139,500+ km, 86,700+ miles. Sold
2015 DL1000 New July 2015 205,000+ km, 127,000+ miles.

This can help preventing from cars pulling out in front of you (SMIDSY)
SMIDSY detailed report.

Why? And how would taking the car have helped me bring it back from the dealership?

Hmm, someone here has to have a Walk-in (ride-in) freezer at work?

I think 28F was the lowest I've seen. Maybe the display doesn't have a "-" and won't show Celcius below 0.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general...nicknames.html

I'm pretty sure (but not positive) I have seen negatives.. -5c or so anyway.

Could not find anything about that in the manual. There's a freeze indicator light to blink below 3 degrees C. on the speedo. But nothing about a Lo readout. And then yours shows Air. Does it always say that? It's like it is referring to the tire pressure. Lo Air. but I don't think we have those sensors. Pain in the ass on my car.
