Waking up to -17 today with relatively calm winds, I decided to Google the trusty WIND CHILL CHART to see what an armageddonist figure might be.

Also pulled up this MotoTigerShark picture from last year's J&P Cycles Open House.

Put the two together and you have a wind chill of -61 if you are travelling at 55mph. Not a very big windshield on that rig. I would have to be layered. x7.

I'm glad the wind speeds at my back porch weren't at 55mph this morning. Relish in the little victories, Polar Vortexters!
