Now the problem is the face shield fogging up on the full-face helmet... I'll try some of those magic "anti-fog" potions and see if they work.
I remember putting newspapers inside the front of my jacket in the '60s.
Not breathing is the only thing that has worked for me. That's a short term solution though.
CAUTION: Remember that cold tires don't have anywhere near the adhesion they do when they're hot. Clean dry cold pavement can provide for some slippery surprises. That smile inside your helmet goes away pretty quickly when the hand grips hit the ground.
