Hardtop Weather

Temperatures dropped into the low 60's this week, so I thought I try out the hardtop. First time it's been on the car since it's been painted. I'm going to wait to install the windows until it gets a little colder.

Splendid! You may wish for those side curtains this morning. 48 degrees here! These BT7s do look fine with the hard tops on! :cheers: BTW My hard top is lacking both the front corner brackets and attendant hold down clamps. [should anyone have any extra, feel free to PM.]

Beautiful. I always liked the look of the BT7 with the hard top. Makes it look more business-like.

Business-like....You're right, this my kind of business!

up until a couple of years ago i did more two wheel riding in the winter than in the summer. of course i had proper attire with heated liners,etc. i have considered installing a plug-in for the heated gear in my bn6 so that i could ride with the top down most of the winter here in south Carolina. frankly i ride with the top down in 20-30 degree days when there is no precipitation....and i don't have a heater in my car! cold sunny mornings off to breakfast with the top off are just one of the benefits of the two seater roadsters!!!

Looks like I jumped to gun on installing the hardtop. It was 80 degrees today. At least I had the benifit of the shade. I also switched to the 195 degree winter thermostat so it ran a little hotter that normal.
