Cold and dark, but at least it wasn't raining. Do you have fenders?
Wet roads, cold temps, you're a machine George!
Yes, I have full fenders on the Sterling. It's a loaded tourer, 48" wheelbase and symmetrical rear wheel. It is heavy and slow though but it gets you there with comfort.
Here's a picture of the Sterling. It was built in the mid eighties by Steve Bilenky. http://gallery.montco.net/index.php/gcarey3/test/2012-01-03_18-05-20_298
