Well got my ZRT to start today at -18 below (those triples are stiff in the cold) and went for a little whip. Started me thinking about how cold is too cold to be out riding?

coldest ive ever gone out, that i can remember was about -30C, without a windchill
-not too sure what that is in F


edit.
if anyone from wpg was riding today their tougher than i would ever be (lol). the weather channel says its -34C with windchill -46C.
id defenitly debate which is more important at that temp. sledding or getting frost bite

Tonight, and today, I was riding in -40 to -50 windchill. This doesn't include going 60 mph into the wind on my sled.

Heres a picture of me this morning:

Last year I was out when it was about -10*F, I don't remember what the windchill was but I do remember that the best way to warm up was for someone to get stuck lol[;)]

Two years ago in Two Harbors, MN about -25 F with a windchill about -40 F. Heated Grips and no exposed skin, I was fine. About 20 miles out I noticed my son was riding with his visor up cause it was fogging. So we headed back. His face was cold but not frostbit.

its like -3 in NW Ohio right now, with a windchill of -20 or something, most local schools didnt even have school this morning because of it, I'd love to be riding in it, but the wind blew all the snow away :(
