I can't belive you consider this trip an alternative to watching doug put in a new clutch in sunny Tampa area.... It is going to be in the mid 70"s today. I know it is a lot like watching paint dry or grass gown but It isn't going to snow anytime soon!..... think I will go mow my yard!... (or go for a ride) Now that is an OR I can live with..
Have a safe trip..stay moderately warm .

Sure, see the big Tampa clutch job...Or you could leave with me this morning for Deals Gap. I'm in a Western Chicago suburb where it's +6F according to my clock. Suiting up and gettting ready to go about 12 miles west to breakfast. I'm lucky. One guy has a 1.5 hour ride to get to the restaurant.
Bring the right equipment.
I've got Gerbings gloves and jacket liner under heavy leather jacket, 3 pairs longies silk then two poly pro under leather pants. Heated grips AND seat. Tires inflated 5 pounds over to compensate for the cold temps outside my garage. 10-40 non synth oil...hope its thin enough. We should be out of this before the bike has to sit more than an hour and a half, so I'm counting on a bit warmer weather down south.
We're heading straight south to I-64 then east to Lexington. Hope we're going far enough South to cut over. We're meeting a guy in Lexington, so we're pretty much stuck with this, I think.
This is my 5th year at this and this is the coldest it's been so far.
