A Guy in Colorado

I've had my bike for about 8 months. I'll ride it as long as the ground is dry (when I leave the house) and it's warmer than 27-degrees. It has a little over 25k miles. I've got a Power Commander III that gives me 51 MPG consistently, along with other minor mods (heated grips, bar ends, frame sliders, windscreen, etc.).

Howdy from the Boulder/ Broomfield area... whereabouts are you located?

I like how you have your clock/thermometer set up, where did you get those?

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

I'm with you brother - up here in Canada. Still riding too. I've got heated grips, but added Zeta handguards and they sure helped.

I commute between Fort Lupton to Niwot. I'm usually riding alongside a green Triumph Speed Triple.

Mikero, this morning is was about 25F. The heated grips helped but my left-hand finger tips were getting a bit colder than usual. I probably should pick up some handguards.
