I had a cold ride home last night here in central Florida. I went to the gym at about 1:30 and was done about 3:30. I went to a nearby friend's house for a beer and then rode home (~25 min) from 5:30 to 5:55. This was right at dusk. At 5:30 when I left his house, it was 48°F and light out. By the time I got home, it was 45°F and pretty dark. I wore leather chaps, a bike jacket with liner, full-finger gloves, and turned the heated seat and grips on high. I was still a little chilly. It is supposed to be warmer today.
We have got as low as 20 degrees so far the next 2 days will be in low 70's. I'll go riding this afternoon after it warms up. It was 34 degrees this morning, we will have have a 40 degrees temperature change from morning low to afternoon high. That's not unusual on the Texas Rolling Plains. By 5pm the temps drop fast and it gets chilly fast.
Wednesday the weather was nice, low 70's light wind. I had a nice ride then stopped by a store and got a couple of rolls of Gorilla tape. Then stopped by a couple of friends shops and visited with them a while and had a couple of beers. It was almost dark when I got home and was getting pretty chilly. I put the scooter up and the hot engine warmed up the Cantina several degrees. It was a good day.
It was 17 degrees this morning -8 Celsius. The coldest temperature here this winter and we did get a couple of snow shower yesterday. We didn't get out of the thirties yesterday, but they predict we will be back up to the low sixties Friday. To cool for me to be riding for a few days.
