A hoodie, a fake leather jacket, my helmet and some decent gloves. Oh, and jeans.

If it wasn't for the jeans I would ride colder.

Yeah, but I don't like to have to strip down when I get to work. So I just cut myself off above freezing. Safer anyways, don't have to worry about the ice.

I've suffered through a ride in the rain when it was 35.
I imagined that was about the most miserable I could be on a bike.
If I can help it, it will never happen again.
I've ridden consistently in the late fall, when it's mid 30's-40's in the morning.
But I don't enjoy it.
I have nothing to prove. Riding is about enjoying it. Anything under mid 50's makes the ride something I have to endure, rather than enjoy.
If the bike is your only vehicle, you don't have the luxury of having a preferable low temp limit.
If it were up to me, it would be 75-80, sunny and 10% humidity, 364 days out of the year, 30 and snowing on Xmas, then back to 75/80.

Nice, mind sharing what kind of gear you wear at those low temps?
i wore:
-hankerchief around my chin covering my neck
-leather gloves
-leather jacket with a sweatshirt underneath
-jeans with sweats underneath
-thermal socks with normal shoes

just watch out for icy patches on the road, lol it wont matter what gear you have on then

you should try to make the trip over to the even in october that i posted up
Yeah that would be awesome. But right now I'm thinking on getting a ZX6R and I have to talk to the dealer and a bank to see if I can get a new one. I don't have much credit and I don't know if they'll approve me.
