Long, long time ago I rode in the Atlanta winters. Wouldn't choose to do that anymore for daily commute. We still hit the mountains every October but we quit going in the third week just because the mornings and night get so cold. The second week in Oct makes a big difference. When I rode daily in the winter I wore two or three jackets, two pairs of gloves, boots, full face knit cap and helmet and it was still brutal, but I was in my 20's and the bike was saving us a bunch of $$ in gas. I did end up in a cast for six months but that crash wasn't weather related. It was someone turning left in front of me, but I digress. Back then they didn't have motorcycle safety classes, you just got your endorsement from taking a test. But I was young and foolish and indestructible. I wouldn't advise riding in winter either if you have other options. Basically winter riding just sucks, unless your doing like the pictures show above!
