I live near Portland which is about 1 1/2 hrs from the coast, A little longer to Mt Hood. I ride all year long but it can get cold. I believe 29 was the coldest I rode in this year, my 2nd ride on the XR was in the snow( not on purpose) but it was a dry snow. By the way it handled quite well!
My camera is down but should be back soon. It snowed this mourning but its already melting off. December would have been a great picture, the snow was knee deep. But my XR was at the dealer so I had to wait 3 weeks before I could bring it home. How is the riding in your area?
