Post Wind Chill Calculator
for those that are still riding as the temps drop, this handy calculator will let you what the wind chill is for the speed you are riding. wind chill for my ride this morning was around 15 degrees. tomorrow will be around 5 degrees.

Personally, I've never been a big fan of the wind chill index idea, even when I lived in Springfield. (I was born and raised there.) Since the index only refers to the effect of temperature and wind on bare skin and few of us go around naked when it's cold it really means very little. Proper clothing and a full face helmet with shield negate it's effects entirely.

I have the latest model wind chill calculator. It's called a "heater" and it's in my car. I just turn up the knob and shazamm....no more freezing. Try it...i bet you'll like it. :catholic:

not riding naked, i'll leave that to the weird europeans. :D but it's good to know if i need extra layers. so far with the gear i have, it's just jeans and a pull over shirt underneath and i'm warm.

Ahhhh. Today's "new" wind chill at 45 mph= 60

That's probably the last of that kind of temp.
