Black is the new orange.

First ride on Sunday, picked it up Thursday. Added a Remus. Very pleased. Would like to leap frog winter in northern Indiana though.

still commuting daily throughout winter, only time don't get on the bike is when it's icy/snowy, marginally milder down south, only needed the thermals twice so far

Observation is the greatest source of wisdom.

on rare days the sun shines as well and it's then i normally ride.

As a younger man i commuted 30 miles a day come rain, snow ice or fog. No heated grips and just normal non waterproof leather clothing.
But i have bad memories of not being able to get off the bike some days because my knees would not move and i could not feel my feet or hands
but then i blame this for my bad knees, hands and feet these days i am sure there is only so many times you can freeze these bits
