Hey, come down I-405 turn East on I-90 and go to BCC(Bellevue Community College) main entrance on 148th(I believe). There is a Shell Station and a building directly behind it, my church (Champions Centre). I am meeting a couple Buddies there and riding down to Auburn from there. Be there between 10-10:30, then run south to the Supermall.

Remember the more moisture that is on the road the less tire wear you will experience!!!!!!!;);););)

I'll do it if there is no rain. I'm not a fan of two wheels in the rain. I know I'm a wussy but I'll admit it.

You realize your bike won't melt....:D:D:D:D:D

Your riding must be limited living in Washington then? Not criticism, just an observation.

Lol!
I'm not worried about the bike I know it can handle it. I just don't like getting wet and cold. I can handle cold but not wet. I'm sure I'm not the only one.
You are right I am limited on my riding out here.
Like I said I'm a wuss. But I will take advantage of any good weather to ride. Wet Is the only thing that stops me from getting on my bike every time I need to get someplace.

Heated Gear

Gary, I'm guessing that you have some plug in gear to keep you warm if you ride in that sort of weather. I was looking at the Gerbing's site and trying to figure out how much of their clothing the electrical system can handle. Jacket, pants, gloves, and boot liners run about 220 watts/ 16 amps. Is that too much of a strain on our system? And would hitting the Stebel horn bring the whole thing down?

I do like extending my season but have never enjoyed the chill while on the bike (but don't mind the rain at all). The Gerbing's stuff seems expensive but well made.

Dan-
I do ride with Gerbing now, never use to. My C has heated seat as well, yehaw!
The bike can handle all you throw at it, but if you want to feel more comfortable put one of my high powered Odyssey Batteries in to be sure. That's not a sales pitch, just a recommendation.

I have ridden with front and rear heated seats turned on high; Gerbing heated gloves and jacket liner for me, gloves for the wife; CB Radio/Intercom; Dual Air Horns and never had a problem with the battery or charging system and I have 18,000 mile son my '08 C109RT. You have the same charging system and my only update is my Odyssey Battery I call the GBat as it's been altered to fit our bikes.

In reference to Gerbing I recommend the heated jacket liner that is like an internal wind breaker with long arms instead of the heated vest with no arms. Then grab the new microfiber heated gloves. I have the older large style and they work very well, but are getting thread bare after 6+yrs so new ones are on my list of 'must haves'. They may be expensive, but if it will extend yoru riding season to all year and they last many years, I say they are well worth it. Jacket Liner is still in top shape and it's been across the US more than once and gets used regularly up to 6 months a year. Hard to not use it when you never get cold even at 20 degrees!

Thanks for the info. Good to hear that I'll be safe. And I put your battery in before my ride to Vegas. Didn't want anything going wrong in the middle of nowhere.
