It was a nice day here in New York today with temps in the low 40's F .Took the K100 out for 3 hours .Man this bike loves this cold air ! It runs GREAT in this weather.Anyway,I had a good time riding and just thought I'd share that. It's so nice to not being here reporting problems and just enjoying my ride.

That sounds like a good few hours out. Any time on the bike is better than in.

When I lived in Vermont & Massachusetts I loved a good Winter ride. Watching out for patches of wet leaves, black ice, and having to clean off the road salt left from spreaders was worth the time spent at the task. Many times it'd be months between rides.

Yep, they certainly do like the cooler weather. Cooler air is denser with more oxygen for combustion.

Yes I found that to be true with my 2 strokes as well.That cold dense air does wonders for them.So Tomorrow is forecast for sunny and temps in the mid 30's F .I'm going out for another cold weather ride .

That was mystery ingredient X when I was doing repeated dyno tests and engine work on my R1100s, seemed to be worth a good few horsepower on the readout at least.

The older you get the more valuable your time becomes and seeing as riding is my favorite pastime I take it whenever I can . May only get out for 45 minutes or an hour but I'm out there and that's all that matters.Life is getting shorter by the second so don't waste it is how I deal with the cold.
