My personal best for "cold" weather riding is a 25-ish mile ride to work at 27 degrees. When I start my bike in those temps, I have her on full choke and leave her there until her RPMs hit about 4k. Once that happens, I know that I can safely back off the choke (reducing the RPMs to around 1100) without worrying about her stalling. At those temps, waiting for her to hit 4k can take several minutes...
