Autumn in January in Atlanta

Here is my faithful steed "Autumn", a 2000 model Harley-Davidson Sportster parked at the office this morning. It was 30F (-1C) this morning and clear which spells a great day to commute on my bike. As I rode along in the brisk air, I thought how lucky I am not to be fighting all of the ice and snow that my friends in the north encounter this time of year. Watching the sun beginning to come up through a full face helmet with the chilly air wisking around my chin, I am grateful for feeling so alive.

Riding a motorcycle in the cold is quite different from riding in any other situation. Maybe that's because our bikes tend to like that cold air.

I draw the line somewhere high above 30deg, though. ;)

ABOVE 30? oh come on, it's still fun in the 20s :)
