Do any of you ride your WR's in the cold?  Got any winter riding pics?

I rode through some of winter last year on my WR250R. We had an ice storm that shut down all the roads (the one that crippled Dallas) and I was one of the only people able to make it home. I plan on doing the same with the WR450F this year.

2014 WRR-Totalled
2012 WR450F-Stolen
2012 WR450F-Third bikes the charm.

Not a yamaha WR, but a WR.

I put Bike Master heated grips on my bike, $48 shipped on ebay.  That and hand guards and I'm comfortable riding in the 40s and upper 30's with thin gloves.  I have a Ricky Stator alternator on the bike, I doubt that the stock system could handle it.  I've been looking at a Heat Demon seat heater, 30 watts for $60.

Yep, year round. Riding and racing. Bike basically stays the same except for maybe oil or small suspension changes for the muddy races. Otherwise it's clothing and frame of mind changes.
