Warm sunny days are still two or six weeks away for those of us in the northern regions (depending on your groundhog of choice) — and yet taking your motorcycle out for a few “pre-season” blasts can be a joyous, refreshing experience. At 55 mph a simple flip of your visor is like downing a triple-shot of your favorite espresso; at eighty-five it’s even better. Hell, a simple whiff of spring air mixed with just a touch of exhaust is enough to give you the stamina of Sting — provided you’ve prepared. Otherwise, prepare for much shivering and an early decision to head back to the heated garage. The solution is having the right gear to stay warm and protected. We’ve lined up our own personal arsenal for your cold-weather-riding pleasure.
