    Joined my first benefit cruise yesterday. 40 degrees out. I learned 3 things.
    1. Winter gloves are a must.
    2. Sprocket change coming up was a good idea (still waiting on the drive sprocket)
    3. Louder exhaust would be a great help, it's WAY too quite at speed.

    with the windscreen I have no problems until close to 60mph, those wind gusts and that 40degree air at 65mph was a learning experience.
    All in all, it was fun.

    A good rain suit is the warmest thing you will ever find for riding a motorcycle, even if it isn't raining. Although condensation can become a problem.

    Just an update on the sprocket change, went from a 16/45 to a 17/40. Night and Day difference for the better. Couldn't tell that it lost any power, maybe a slight amount on low end, but 1st is no longer that obnoxious granny gear and 6th is actually more reasonable rpm at 65mph instead of screaming lol.
