Are you guys still riding in these temperatures?

First winter for me here in Switzerland, and I'm an all-weather rider back home, so I'll ride unless there's snow on the road.
Whaat, you don't like a likkle bit of snow on the roads?
More fun that way.

I will ride with a tiny bit of snow, especially so back in London, as it usually melts throughout the day making any journey come from work much easier even if the journey to work isn't as such. Two feet on the ground, clutch in-out .... can't say I'd do the same in Switzerland unless i really had to/emergency.

Snow's fun, when you don't have anything to attend to, and fun with friends. Otherwise I hate the stuff

p.s. my dad is using a Garmin Zumo 550 on his BMW R1200GT. There is the standard holder in the box, and he uses this along with the special mount created by BMW for this GPS - BMW have a rebranded version of the Zumo which is why such a thing exists. If you buy one of these mounts, there may be a specialised mount for it, otherwise the RAM mountain kit (some basic bits are included, but may not be enough) in the box are pretty good for the job. He does like the Zumo, it's pretty good

Considering it's about 10C at the moment, sure.

Tom
I call time when it is wet and +2C, but I'll ride in -2C if it bone dry. But black ice is a real risk.

Know the bikes limits.

Yeah, the issue occurred upon reboot.
It would set the time to 1940's and try to have you invade Poland.
