Default #1657 arrives during the Polar Vortex!

#1657 arrived at the dealer yesterday! Very exciting. Initial walk around looks good and still awaiting the carbon fiber bits and full PDI including air box. No hurry since it's -8 degrees out at the moment. No cracks in the cup tires either.

My newly built one is still in rail transit someplace in the Midwest. I am concerned about the cooling system not being protected to such low temps and the block cracking.

Of course not, but I see listings of -25 degrees F as spec for some factory antifreeze fills. It could easily be -40 they tell me in some places. I have had a block cracked in a transport before.
