When it gets cold here, we get to -40 degrees. You'd hafta have one helluva big fairing to keep warm then!
Once you get the blood pumping, all you really need is a pair of light gloves and a windbreaker!

I did a 26 mile ride last night in 35* temps. By the time I got back to the car, the thermometer dropped to 25*. I was wearing a pair of tights and a windbreaker and was toasty warm at the end!

yes i too sometimes will wear what I too refer to as a base layer under my jeans when riding at this time of year...does help...especialy in areas where chaps don't cover...would refrain from calling them tights tho...guy thing I guess...although for years nfl football players wore womens nylons on game day to keep warm...of course no one had a problem with that, at least not to the players face....but then of course there is taking things a little too far in my opinion...


Men in Tights | mancouch

mantyhose its called....scary is what I call it...



won't call it one of those hmmmmmm things...perhaps more like one of those poor guy,must have grown up in a house full of girls without a father figure....

really do think I need to get a dog, gecko or life. Too much time on my hands. Sorry.

I learned that my cycling gear can pull double duty for motorcycling too!!

Take the padded bike shorts! They've got the chamois pad sewn in, which keeps your posterior cool and comfortable, on a hard bicycle saddle. When you use it as a base-layer for motorcycling, you introduce a whole new level of long distance comfort, no matter WHAT saddle you're on! Seriously... It helps to eliminate monkey butt!

In the colder weather, I use the compression garments (Ok, I won't call them tights!) as a thermal base layer, then long-johns, then jeans, then chaps. The result is long term comfort, moisture wicking fabric against your skin and with the cycling shorts added, no monkey butt!

In fact, the wind-proof cycling gloves work even better for the motorcycle!
