Try temp of 40 with speed of 55 mph and then try 40 with speed of 130 mph. Hmm. Only 5 degrees difference but you get there more than twice as fast. Sweet. [[img]/emoticons/emotion-2.gif[/img]]

jd, that one seems a little more accurate to me. I've been out when it's pretty chilly, and been warm. Then 25 mph later, I'm freezing my butt off.

A good ride is one from which you can walk away. A great ride is one after which you can use the bike again.

Hmmm, According to that last one, I've seen a wind chill of -140 on my sled. I thought it was getting kinda cool out there!
