New England cold is damp cold. Nothing like out west. On the bright side it is always snowman making snow. But it's hard to roll a big snowball when the snow is over your head.

Frostbite stinks. Takes years and years to really heal and then you refreeze much easier. I froze the tips of a couple fingers one year bringing my car battery inside when it was -38. My hands hurt now once the temp drops much below 50.
Thanks Sue for reminding my why I live in the Southeast......

Lots of snowbirds traveling the roads down this way.....maybe you should think about joining them?

My dream retirement would be to have a place in Northern Minnesota or Wisconsin......another place between Bowling Green Kentucky and say....Florence Alabama, or farther East to Maggie Valley NC.....and yet another place in Central Florida...

Anyway...perfect weather all the time looks like dreams I'll never see....Heck, long as I'm dreaming Utah and Montana might as well be included right?

My wife and I don't ride much when it's below freezing and thankfully, it doesn't stay that cold very long down here.

I have found flannel lined (or for even more warmth fleece) lined dicky work pants or cabelas jeans are as warm, more comfortable and all around just less stuffy to wear than tights/longjohns pants combo.
How do fleece pants work in the saddle ? Slide every where ?

i agree joe. I believe in the lined jeans. Much warmer than thermals and reg. Jeans.

For the extreme cold I have worn thermals under the lined jeans. Works real well

Joe the fleece pants depends on the saddle. I have fleece lined breeches so it has a little rougher material on the outside but if the saddle is oiled beyond what it should be, yeap I will slide off. A western saddle though wont make a difference as long as it isn't smooth leather.

I'm a freeze baby and look absolutely ridiculous in the winter. Just last week I put sweatpants over my breeches to keep warm.

I love layers, and buy warmer layers in larger sizes so that they will fit over eachother lol. I can get about 3 sweatshirts over a baselayer with a down vest over that. I went 4 years without a winter coat in Wisconsin. I probably look a good 100 pounds heavier with my winter gear on lol. The fuzzier the better. I have one of those furry hats that come down past your ears and buckle under the chin, yeap I look stupid but I stay all toasty warm and the fuzzy on my face is way better than cold snow.

I've had some LL Bean flannel lined jeans that were nice and warm. Wouldn't work for -38 but then I've got no urge to ride in temps anywhere near that.

Both pairs of flannel lined jeans I had ran real small should somebody want to get themselves a pair. I had to go up a full size and if I wore heavy long johns they were uncomfortably tight. Maybe I can get Santa Claus to buy me another pair.

Yes! Spring I love it. People will ask if I've lost weight. No..I've just started peeling layers off.

Yup I noticed the same. The lined jeans do run small.

I like the wool army surplus pants as nothing beats the warmth of wool. Hard to find them in my size these days.

Huh? I have pierced ears. My hat comes down below my ears. Not a problem for heat.

I'm confused as well.. I have my ears pierced twice and I've never had a problem with the earrings making me cold? I wear a hat or an ear head band warmer thing.. What's the correct name for that thing? I always get looked at like I'm crazy when I say ear head band warmer thing.
