hello Pit Monkeys,

As you know, it's that time of year again when as soon as you leave the house, your balls freeze instantly and riding is rather more uncomfortable.

Just wondering what you do to keep that little bit warmer? personally i put on a pair of tights underneath my jeans (i know most of you are guys, but that doesn't matter, my dad was the one who told me to do it as he used to do it in winter too!) and lately, i've put rubber gloves (not the ones you use for washing up, the latex ones you use in garages) under my gloves (haven't had a chance to get some winter gloves yet so im still using my winter ones )

Ride safely

note to spammers: icy hot doesn't work, barrell rolls have been done many times and yes cars are safer, warmer and more comfortable, but we're being difficult.

I don't ride a bicycle anymore, but I wish to get a motorcycle soon. When I was young and rode with my dad (motorcycle) I would wear thermal underwear (works very well) along with layers on top of that.

But you can't carry an amp or guitar on a motorbike!

But seriously, maybe you should get some riding leathers. Thats what they're for I think...

HAHA, my dad has leathers. Every time he used to bust out of his room (when I lived at my parents house) I would tell him how epic he looked.

As far as the amp and guitar, maybe I can get a sidecar? I would look like a moron, but that's going to happen either way I think

When I was living near the Rockies, we learned all sorts of keep warm tricks for skiing in the dead of winter. The snow there was amazing but the cold could be brutal at the end of January / beginning of February.

Ski gloves are made better for the cold than anything else on the planet. Expensive, but worth every penny. Down or holofil bibs are much warmer than jeans could ever dream of being, even with panty-hose and long-john underwear. If you must do jeans, make sure they're loose fitting and put some elastic bands around the cuffs. That will keep the cold air from getting up the legs.

You lose MOST of your body heat through your head. Your body will slow down the flow of blood to your extremities to protect your core. If you don't lose as much heat through your head, your fingers and toes will stay warmer.

Bottom line:

Except for good gloves, nothing is more important to keeping your fingers warm than a good hat. I hate wearing hats, but it's a minor inconvenience compared with frostbitten digits.

EDIT:

When it comes to warm hats, nobody does it better than the Russians.

Yes you can. This one carries the guitar, has a built in amp under the seat and a speaker mounted on the back fender.

American Chopper ftw.

Except they couldn't get the guitar in the holder thing. Plus it was so tight it'd mess up your strings every time you jammed it in.

Yeah, I saw the episode when they made it. Still, at least it shows what's possible with a little better design, after all, they've designed it from a biker's point of view, not a musician's.
Have you seen this one?

I can't begin to imagine what damage that exhaust is doing to that guitar, if it's a real guitar.

You ain't missing much. It's cold, wet, and kills old people via hypothermia. Causes cars to crash, people to slip and fall over and break bones, pipes to burst, ect.... it's a nightmare really.
Actualy, it's been years since we had any deep snow in Britain that's lasted more than a couple of days.
Thank God for global warming eh?

no, chaps are the leather things that go over your legs and have no ass. Usually leather, great for cutting wind.

Go to your local bike shop. He's a bit of a Harley ***** so I think he got it from a Harley dealer.

It's expensive (let's face it, anything with the Harley logo is twice as expensive... stay clear), but they work really well. Both the vest and grips hook up to the battery (so I guess you have to be careful about leaving them on).

Heh heh, a mate of mine visited New York years ago, got off the airplane, went straight into a shop and asked for twenty 'fags'. (British slang for cigarettes) He said the reaction he got was quite strange.

I honestly haven't ridden a motorbike for years. The last one I had was a Triumph 5TA. In those days, we used to make a pair of trousers out of an old quilted sleeping bag then wear oversized waterproofs over them. Lovely and cosy.

I'm a wimp. I hate riding in the cold.
My son just moved back home from Fl. and brought his gf with him. She has never seen snow before either. She is quite excited today because they are predicting snow tonight. Can't wait to see her disappointment. She's already freezing and it's still been in the 50s.

I only go on my friend's motocross bike from time to time, and the boots and trousers are warm enough, especially with the engine going, plus your head has the warmth kept in because of the helmet - the only place I found extra heat to be needed was the torso and an extra long-sleeved t-shirt plus the bike gear was fairly comfortable.


I don't know how cold it gets on the road though, and Winter has been mild lately where I live (yay global warming! No, I actually miss snow ).
