Here are some pictures of my red 959 near the Edmonds Ferry in Washington state. If you're contemplating the red panigale then these pictures might put you over the edge! Or if you're ever contemplating a trip to Washington state, they might just make you visit! We have some gorgeous sites here.

Best picture if the 959 facing the sunset. Perfect lighting right there. How's the weather?
warm enough to ride but cold enough that engine heat is welcome. I think the high was low 50's and the low was mid 40's. This was around the highs of the day. I took a bunch more pictures but was trying not to post a million pictures. :)

Do you have any cold weather gear, or was this a learning lesson as to what you should need next time? :D

I definitely have cold weather gear. Have done multi day trips in 35 to 40 degree weather. Of course that was on the sport touring bike though.

indeed, these are ideal for ideal riding conditions. the cold is when most guys like us hide, retreat to our cages :D

I got a reminder of that last night. Rode about 50 miles in about 50 degree temperature at 70 to 80mph. I had to stop halfway through to warm my hands before continuing on. They were freezing. I'll have to remember to always have a pack of hand warmers in my inside jacket pocket.

Those are also great to have in your boots, but that depends on the individual, some people feel the cold more than others.

Maybe a pair of thermal riding gloves?
I've got the freeze out liners and gauntlet gloves. But 80mph in 45 degree weather for 30 minutes on a sport bike got my hands very cold. I have heated grips on my Concours. And that helps. But it doesn't help your fingers. I may someday do heated glove liners. Or I'll just be careful how I ride this cold time of the year and have hand warmers on hand when I end up needing them.
