Right well I was riding home from work (3 am), and might I just say that I have learned that more than enough clothes are definitely not enough!!!! When I got the bike, I went out and bought all the awesome gear, Nice dririder jacket(with a thermal layer), riding gloves (winter and summer) and some Alpinestar boots. So anyway. On the night, I was wearing my work uniform and gear, it consisted of: fairly crappy black pants, jeans over the pants(lol), my boots, long sleeve work shirt, work vest, dririder jacket with thermal and dammit my summer gloves! On the ride home, I could feel the icy winds coming through my helmet and gloves and by god i think I nearly got frostbite. I got work tonight again but this time, I'm gonna add to that collection : Thermal underwear!!!!!, a bandana for the ice winds, an undershirt and my Effin winter gloves! I have learned my lesson. To all the other learners, winter is coming so bloody suit up, it's cold and it sucks getting caught without the right gear on. To any riders who have experienced this hell(and I know there are many of you out there), post your story here and give the noobs a hearty warning and advice for the colder months.
