Yon can tell winters here as I've had to light my wood burning stove for the first time.
Any young ladies fancy getting all snuggly in front of it with me?

I've just put the liner back in my bike jacket, bought some winter gloves and dug out my thermals for the weekend ride out

Putting liner in my jacket for Saturdays lesson and digging the textile trousers out 'cause jeans just did not cut it last week. Not sure I'll be resorting to thermals... just yet anyways!

My thermals were bought with winter walking, camping & mountaineering in mind, not been out of box yet. Think I'll see how I go this weekend first with techie t-shirt & fleece aswell as textile trousers. Don't want to get winter gear out just yet incase it gets lots worse!!

Cold weather, we all know isn't great on a bike. But it does have it's advantages. On the ball, all the time. Good practice. And isn't it funny, when you jump in a car and have to turn the heating down. Or is that just me? Goatskins are the way forward but they don't button down to well. Everyone be safe this winter.

Oh yes winter's here. Bike to work Thursday morning...fingers numb by the time I got there and my cheeks really rosey and burning hot all day once I thawed out....think I got freezer burn or is that just what frostbites like?

Here's a tip for winter riding, or even just keeping warm what ever you're doing. Heat up one of those theraputic gel pacs in the microwave then place it across your chest if it's big enough under a jacket, I use a velcro strap to keep it in place, it keeps your core temp warm & stops your extremeties from getting cold. I've got heated grips but I rarely use them 'til I've done at least twenty miles in the coldest weather 'cause of the gel pack, it's good for around the house too, saves on heating bills which are flipping sky high at the moment, give it a go & see what you think.

I resorted to buying a pair of pjs today! I'm used to having someone to snuggle up so this change in the weather is most unwelcome.

A few years ago when I started riding I discovered a heated fleece waistcoat which has a little battery pack that on full lasts 5 hours, on mid setting (it has 9 heat settings) lasts 8 hours, it has 2 panels on either side of your chest and a 3rd across your kidneys ... Was £50 with a couple of spare batteries, the batteries are rechargeable ones not AA etc it was well worth the pennies, especially at cold camps or below my jacket on a cold days riding ... I think Bill got one too......

Big yellow jacket over your bike jacket for those coldest days or long, cold journeys. That's all you need.


Plus, a big white and red motorcycle being ridden at a ton plus in the right hand lane by a guy with a yellow jacket and a white helmet is a great way of beating traffic lol! Seriously, everyone moves out of the way; I've even had people move into the right hand lane well ahead, then spot me coming and quickly swerve back into the middle lane and out of my way lol!
