Default Loves cool weather

Anybody else notice their bike loves the cooler weather? The first few cool days we had I noticed right off that my bike loves the cool temps. Motor runs so much quieter and just seems to be smoother. Makes me wonder if I'm running too hot in the summer months.

All engines love the cooler weather, especially motorcycles. Every bike I have owned runs better in cool temps. The 800 suzuki I owned before my Vic ran noticeably much better when it was cool (not freezing cold). I notice it on my Vic but not as much as the Suzuki.

Internal combustion engines like cold air better for the same reason airplanes do. Cold air is denser. For the engine, this means more oxygen entering the engine to help burn the fuel. For an airplane, this means more lift.

Every MC I've owned loves to breathe that cool dense air. Even the Pitster is running better

Bikes love it more than the rider does.
Love the heated grips for the cool rides.

Well, since it's 70 here just about every day, I'll never know the joy you guys experience.

What do you guys who ride in 40-50 degree weather wear to keep warm besides pricey leather coveralls and electric everything? Anything a poor retiree could afford?

Tin foil? I'm not worried about aliens or the CIA, just the cold
