Took the vulcan out for a ride this afternoon. I like to once a week or so, get 'er warmed up, use all the moving components, keep fresh gas in it.
Beautiful day too, here in Tacoma. Sunday, dry, no wind...but 36 degrees F.
My riding suit kept me warm. A balaclava under the helmet kept my head warm, my gloves did a pretty good job, my fingertips were cold by the time I got home...but my feet were cold, wrong boots I guess.
The more I ride the more I enjoy riding. And man, the vulcan is good in the cold weather. I've been looking at Sport Touring machines (more my riding style and better weather protection) but the vulcan runs so good and is so good for commuting I'm having a hard time getting rid of it.
