Default Re: Thinking of motorizing straight on through winter

An all-season, all-weather commuter myself I've found that bundling up snug may be warm, but it's somewhat hazardous as well - when riding on the icy/snowy chunky junk on the side of the road a quick dexterity is often needed for yet another last second save... so I tend to wear far less bulky clothing than you'd expect given the location, usually all that's needed is "normal" cool weather clothing (jeans, sweatshirt, jacket, etc) the main difference being I'll just wear my rain gear over it...

...and what a difference! I'm just as warm as with true winter gear, but I'm not stumbling around like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man lol, If you've not tried it ya outa
