Drinking alcohol is great way to invite frostbite.
Pierced earrings are also a no go. I only have the one basic set but I quit wearing them when I worked outside. Sucks too much heat from you.
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.
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.
