So, after riding to work for the past few days with temps in the low 20's (I know, it's the south, not really that bad), I decided that I needed some optimism for the winter riding season.

Here are the limited 'glass half-full' things I could come up with:

1) Freezing cold tires and roads cause almost no tire wear.
2) Cold air temps offer more power.
3) No bugs to clean off your visor.


But I feel compelled to submit the corollaries:

1) Because there is no grip to wear them.
2) But you can't use it because the engine never gets to temp.
3) Now there's just a fine haze of salt spray.


Any others?

You are saving miles on your ride.

Us who hail from warmer climes put too many miles on our bikes, thus reducing the value of said vehicle.

1. your using the wrong tires
2. if it gets warm enuf to idle at normal revs, it's warm enuf
3. ok, you have to stop occasionally to clean the residue off


winter riding improves you skills
you become a smoother rider
you become a safer rider
you get the thumbs up from other riders who are cagin it
