It was cold, but it was great to get back out on two wheels today! Usually I wouldn't let the temperature stop me from riding, but the area I live in is black ice country. Only getting to ride two times in three weeks has been rough. I say bring on this warm winter rain from Hawaii so I can keep on riding!!

Surprised to hear this is a weakness with only 8,000 miles.

At least it's winter...

LOL! I'm in Hawaii right now. It's been hot and really muggy. No trade winds. Sucks.

Could it be as simple as a misadjusted clutch? There are numerous YouTube videos describing adjustment at the clutch and at the clutch lever.

Or, it could be that your oil isn't working properly in these temps. You might need a lighter weight oil.

Oahu. Service related visit. Leaving soon. Then it will be 72 and flourescent with the chance of scope liberty every day.

Makes perfect sense!

Love Hawaii. Gets a bit claustrophobic for me after a bit, even on the big island.

Claustrophobic...lol! You have no idea.

I could not live here. No good roads, no tracks and a surplus of transient people with no fucks to give about anyone but themselves. Can't blame my wife for moving to the mainland.
