I put my bike away three weeks ago when the temps dipped into the mid 30s on my morning route and I saw the first frosting of snow. Got some new gloves from Santa, so took the beast out for some mid-day errands, but otherwise, I’m pretty much parked until probably late March — and I live in NorCal, so you’re probably 15 degree colder and 5″ more rain on a good day.
Still, it warms my heart to see diehards like you riding 365 — go, man, go!
BTW: I went the goretex over my leather route for rain as well. I end up looking like a giant red tomato, but it keeps ALL the rain out and breathes enough for comfort.
