Heat was the Best Gift of All

It’s about 43 degrees Fahrenheit with a good steady breeze bringing the chill factor to what? I’d don’t know, but it was mighty chilly for motorcycle riding. We in Southern California are rather partial to our moderate temperatures, and 43 degrees is not moderate to me. I’ve lived in cold climates, and I don’t intend to do it again. Still, there I was riding my Harley Davidson Ultra Classic home from the Harley dealership. And, I could hardly believe it because I was toasty warm thanks to my new heated handgrips and heated vest. All of this was because my darling wife gave me the best of all possible Christmas gifts, heat.
