What do I win?

I rode to work today. Hit the button to display the outside temp. It said "--F" Didnt know if it was a secret code that you mailed into Honda and got a free insulated tire gauge. Just never seen this before. I know I've seen 16 degrees. I figured it was Honda telling me it was too cold to be out. It's a good possibility as it was only 8 degrees at 4 this morning...

On a side note, where does the temp reading fall off?

It's Honda's way of saying you're a dang idiot for being out riding at that temperature. Seriously - It's where the indicator unit's range ends - just the way it is. I've got some gear that I calibrate that the lower rated end is 0C / 32F.

I can't speak for the OP but I ride in those temperatures because I have a riding affliction. Please don't find a cure for me.

I ride as long as no snow or ice on the road. Temp gauge this morning read 16F .. that is the coldest I've ridden I yet...even though the weather guessers were saying it was 13 degrees before I left the house.
