Default 27 degree ride

Took a 235 mile ride through the mountains up North today after this
it's to cold. Most of the ride was 27 degrees outside of Phoenix. Heading
south after this. Az rides north are the most scenic I think.

2015 Suzuki V-Strom DL650 (bought new 4/26/17)
2006 Triumph Rocket III Classic
1/4 turn throttle ring
Tank riser
VM-1 DR cams
Timing wheel +4
Lloydz high-flow air cleaner
Bassani baffled OEM mufflers
PC-V 118hp 116tq
If it's not broke, make it better

You mean to tell us that not all of Arizona is palm trees and triple digit temps? Really?

Yeah. I'm at 3300 feet and know enough to go downhill during the cold months but like you said; the more scenic rides and roads are up in the hills.

We are definitely in a cold trend right now. Should warm back up next week.

It was nearly 70 degrees here yesterday so I took a nice long ride. Was still a warm 62 on top of the hills around here yesterday.

Were you wearing electric gear or just bundled up?
