    Too cold to ride ?

    Spring is in the air and we are all itching to ride.

    What temperature (air) is your minimum ?

    Do you wear gear to keep you warm ? Recommendations?

    Usually the first ride of the year is 55-60 degrees air temp and water is 40 degress. I do wear a wetsuit.

    The most important thing here is NOT what to wear to keep warm,its the cold water you will be running through the motor.Pistons will expand alot fast than the cylinders,be careful guys.

    Do you recommend not running the ski's at that low of water temp. Or do you just have to warm up your motors a lot better first. Let us know your thoughts on this. Thanks Kevin
