I (unknowingly) rode in -8C. I remember getting to work and the woman called and asked if I rode. I was like ya and she said check the temperature.

Yah it was cold, but it was sunny, in March. Probably won't do it again.

I've got caught in the snow before too. It wasn't really sticking to the pavement, but my visor would get coated every 5 seconds (big flakes) .. forced me to open the visor and that wasn't really pleasant.

I'm no longer the diehard I thought I was...

.. having said that can someone source me a VFR400?

And that's not a VFR, btw.

Today was awesome, still cold in the morning yet far less ice on the roads.
