Got to go with Doc on this one. It's not the cold that concerns me; it's the ICE/SNOW/SAND on the road surface. Then again, when it is 9 degrees outside and about a 0-degree wind chill, like it is in central Minnesota tonight, I don't want to ride even if the roads are perfect!
Alabama? Hell, you live in the tropics, Old Son! Ride safe, Brother, and enjoy!
P.S. I'm 57 years old. My belief in "No Pain, No Gain" kinda faded when I turned 50 and realized that I no longer had to look for pain! "You can't stop what's comin'; it ain't all waitin' on you. That's vanity." (No Country For Old Men)
