    I've got a 49cc HT kit, have successfully started and ridden it at around 15F here in SW Ohio. Glad these little motors start well in the cold. Thank God for chokes.

    What about you?

    10 F is the lowers I've ever ridden in. Hard to start, but got it up to 35 after it warmed up.

    As an all season commuter... however cold it might be, I try to not pay too much attention to such things, instead I step outside and judge by the four degrees of disgruntlement;

    hmm... ok fine, jacket today
    meh... yea, prolly outa gloves
    sheesh... time for nylon pants & fuzzy hat too
    arrgh! scarf, doubled up pants, socks & fleece

    15F; just two weeks ago. was 45F the day before yesterday, and 22F today. I have an X80 with an NT Speed, #75 jet. On the 45F day, I had the needle clipped 2nd from top. Had to move it down 2 slots today to richen it up for the thicker air. Tempermental little buggers, but well worth the effort.

    Racko: I misread that as "40" and thought "THAT'S cold in WI?!?".

    Just last week I was riding around in freezing 61 degree weather. Luckily it warmed up to 64 in the afternoon. I don't like the winter time.
