Oooh, your blood must be thin from living down there! Up here 56 is  
well into the 'jeans and riding jacket' weather. I'll admit I wimp out  
these days and pull the electric gloves out when it gets near 40. The  
electric vest comes out about the same time for insurance; I have a  
long commute at 70+. Can't imagine what riding at -35 is like, coldest  
I've been out is +5.
