There are 2 main things for cold weather riding.
1-break/block the wind.
2-insulate in layers.
Windshields are great, and can always be popped off when it gets too warm if desired. As for garb, I wear either leather or Carhart, usually with a down vest or hooded sweatshirt underneath, then jeans and long johns. When REAL cold, I wear insulated Carhart coveralls.
I almost always wear a halfshell helmet, so to that I'll add a military helmet liner that wraps ears, old style aviator goggles, and a thinsulate face mask which reaches to bottom of throat. For gloves, I use thinsulate lined leather.
When cold, I wear cold weather combat boots and wool socks, and when REAL cold, have been known to wear Sorels.
