If you are wearing warm weather shoes and you don't have space for huntin socks, get the bootys. You can also just wrap your shoes with something and tape in place or even just put a layer of duct tape to keep the vents closed. Get a skully to go under your helmet, those vents let a ton of cold in. When it got real cold at home, something for the face is great, but it has to go on and off easy, I have a push down mask. It's great for robbing convenience stores too. These guys were dead on when they said layers, I like a base pair of acrylic long johns and shirt, then a jersey, then a thin fleece, then a windbreaker. On the bottom, I will wear long johns, then tights, and possibly shorts or pants over if needed. I take layers off when I am still a little cool, to avoid sweating stuff up. I have heavier than normal gloves, they are actually snowboarding park gloves but anything will work. At 40 it isn't that bad, at 30 though, you really need to be bundled and I won't ride under 25, it burns my lungs up. Have a great time man.
