Wow. Late season. I was out for 5-6 hours on the ZX14R yesterday. Saw a dozen or so folks out. Was up to 14 but down to 8 degrees C on the way home. The words brisk and crisp start to describe the experience. The tires slip at these temps. They lost traction once at 120km/hr....geesh. I may take out the GT today as it is a bit colder out and the GT has heated grips and a better windshield (aftermarket). Forecast for 10 degree high. Nov ride zx14r.jpg

Perhaps we shall make it a limerick.

There once was dude from Missippin"
Whose rear end was constantly slippin"
It just took a twist from his throttle hooked wrist
to prevent him from on his face flippin.

His grip was as loose as his lippin,
so his tire would reject any grippin,
he was consistently rude when out for his food
so spent time independently sippin.

Eh, Eh?
