I used to be able handle that kind of temperature ranges, lived in Phoenix, AZ for 20 years....... then one day coming home from work, a Semi merged me into the Center Median and the results of that was a broken body thermostat.... I either dress up to keep warm, or I find an air conditioner to cool down.....

when it gets over 80*F outside, I am done for the day :(

That would be enough to make most people quit riding all together. I'm glad you didn't give up! Kudos!

Putting new fork seals/ new oil/ new front tire,replacing the E3 radial with Avon Radial,there’s been many discussions on not using Radial on 1500 but this combination makes my 1500 handle better than any tires I’ve ever had,Avon bias ply on rear.just turned 100 thousand on odomete.

Put the king & queen seat back on, and rode again. The SO has a harder time getting up on that seat than she does on the Sportster seat, but it's more comfy for her.

Then, it started to rain and we went back home. We may go back out later.

Went and bought my ‘new’ bike. 1986 Aspencade from the original owner. 35k miles. Not the prettiest bike, but mechanically sound. Original owner put a bunch of money into this spring on new fork seals, tires, carb clean and tune up, battery, rebuilt the brake calipers. It’s missing the battery cover, otherwise fine. Could use some new grips and a new windshield. Very psyched. Third Wing I’ve owned, first 1200. The wife is very happy to have something that isn’t a rigid mount sportster to ride on.
