Default New to site. 2 yrs of winter riding

Well I must say that this site has helped me alot. Thanks! My first gasbike had just over 5000 km on it before it was stolen. This winter I am near 2700 km on my second winter bike. I am building an Electra Cruser for the spring. I ride every day that I'm not broke down, even at -30 C. Thanks again.

Welcome to the forum, from the other side of the mountains. There are a few others here from your area.

I'll bet when it's -30C your bike loves to run (once you get it started). If you're interested, I found some numbers and posted them here, on Temperature and Air Volume. When it's -30C, the air is denser so if you have a 66cc, you're drawing the equivalent to between 79.5 and 81.5cc of air, or a bit over 20% more.


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
