I'd definitely like to do that. Back in September, took the long way (460 miles round trip) to Sikeston to eat at Lambert's cafe, down through Iron County, hitting all the good twisties along the way. It was a fantastic trip.If you plan on riding much longer, maybe we could get together for a backroad ride down in mark twain nf
BigB, I was wondering about tire temps, too, esp. on cold pavement, but with the stock trailwings, I haven't noticed any appreciable handling issues yet, at least down to 25F (coldest I've ridden yet this year). Now, my old bike, with narrower (and 4-year-old) tires, I found that the rear would tend to start slipping a little in very hard cornering at the same temps, but the Wee and Trailwings so far are both doing admirably.If it is above 32 degrees I'm going out, anything below that is crazy. Tires probably won't warm up enough to be safe in my opinion, and that is just too freakin cold!!!! Your a true trooper....I'll give ya that.
I've found winter riding to be a lot like riding dirt trails after a rain. You just got to know what to look for and be ready to act fast. So far this winter the biggest problem for me has been salt! I just recently spent an hour spraying down the V and KLR with lubricant and wiping every surface I could reach because there is so much getting on the bikes. If the weather is as warm tomorrow as it was today I'll probably try to wash them down and reapply some lubricant to try and protect them.If it is above 32 degrees I'm going out, anything below that is crazy. Tires probably won't warm up enough to be safe in my opinion, and that is just too freakin cold!!!! Your a true trooper....I'll give ya that.
