I am blown away with the riders here in NE china.
sub zero, yes sub-zero, they are bundled up with these huge gloves and
about any material including wool covered cardboard.
another side note, I watched ice block with lights inside being cut with chain saws today.

Subject: What a difference...
For years my GPZ just wouldn't run well in sub-freezing temps. It would stall and need ~50% choke almost the entire ride time.
Over the years I purchased a Triumph Speed Triple and Harley Vrod thinking that fuel injection was the answer to cold weather riding. I was wrong -- a valve job and carb sync has my GPZ running as well as the injected bikes.
I sold the Speed Triple and the VROD because I always found myself riding the GPZ due to its versatility, fairing, riding position, large gas tank, etc. I was contemplating a Bandit with fairing because it's so much like the GPZ but fuel injected.
For a cost of $300 (for the GPZ tuneup) I found that I don't need the Bandit or any other bike. The GPZ is a solid bike.
24 degrees and running like a champ.
Now I just need to figure how to keep my fingers from feeezing up - the heated grips and various gloves I've tried don't quite do it.
