    Cooler weather running

    We are planning on heading to the lake over Thanksgiving and I want to take the Raider. Do I need to do any tuning changes? Temps will be around 80 for a high and 60 for a low.

    It's going to be cool, but I can't resist taking it. I have a spring-time wet suit (shorts and short sleeve) to help handle the cooler water temps.

    Always jet up or at least back your screws out a tad in cooler weather. Warm up your skis for AT LEAST 5 mins, varying the throttle. Cooler weather takes longer to get everything warmed up.

    Wind breakers work well under your life jacket....as long as you don't get wet!

    For cooler rides look into getting a dedicated jacket like the mustang survival jacket. Very comfy, warm and works great in cooler (not cold) climates.

    Those Slippery When Wet slippers are NICE....or a good set of dive boots.

    Well considering that the summers here are 100 degrees and 99% humidity then HELL YES 60's is cooler!!!

    There was a threat of an ice storm last year and it shut the whole freaking city down.
