    Due to the actual wheater here in AUSTRIA we have temperature differences up to nearly 20 degrees Celsius from the early morning to the late afternoon of a day.
    Today I started my 60 km (37 mi) ride to work at -2 degree Celsius (28,4 F) an will return in the early evening at about 15 degree Celsius (59 F).
    What is your personal temperature limit for a ride?

    Depends on what gear you have and what quality it is.
    My Bering textile jacket can be comfortably worn with a thin base layer and a T shirt down to about 0 degrees C here in the south of England but with my previous Triumph jacket I would have needed more layers or my Keis heated bodywarmer!
    Heated grips are essential :cool:
    (Heated seat is nice too!) :D
    Temperature won't vary that much in a day here - probably the most it will change this week is -1 to 7 degrees C.

    Don't need to ride anymore to go at work, but the years I had to do that the only limit was ice on the road.
    Now over 50 I admit I'd be tempted around 0°C to take the car :)

    We're advised by IAM (Institute of Advanced Motorcyclists) not to ride when 2 degrees or below. o_O
