Rode home tonight in the first cool weather of the season! Fun fun fun. Temp was prolly high 50ís but I did notice my hands getting cold at 75mph on the EV. I wear aerostich Elkskin roper gloves that are not insulated. Iím thinking about prying loose 135.00 bucks from the Mrs.ís pursestrings and get the insulated merino gauntlets. Any input on insulated gloves welcome. I do not have heated grips
Hand guards to keep the wind off ($25 to $40 off Amazon) and Oxford electric heated grips ($89.99 off Amazon) and you set up for toast warm hands. The Oxfords are dead simpy to wire up. Attach two ring terminals to the battery to power the controller then plugh the grips intot he pigtails from the controller. The real nice thing about Oxfords is you do not need to wire to a keyed power source. If you forget to turn them off they wil shut off automatically in a munite or two of the key being turned off. If the controller does not sense any electrical "noise" it'll shut down.
As above, hand guards and Oxford grips. For gloves you can't beat ski gloves and I suppose the snowmobile guys have good gloves too. I normally ski in insulated work gloves but when it's really cold I use Swany X-cell gloves -- about $110 on line, but much more expensive in ski shops. These last me five to eight winters of teaching skiing, and when they begin to show wear on the palms I retire them to the motorcycle.
Go to any Bass Pro Shop or Cabelas and pick up some "Hot Hands" packets. If you're faced with a sudden drop in temperatures you can put them in your gloves, or your pax can put them in their jacket pockets to keep their hands warm. (Happy wife, happy life) I usually keep a packet or two in my tank bag for emergency use. They have some for cold toes too!
I bought a Warm n'safe jacket liner and gloves and love them. I think the gloves were $135.00 and quite honestly the gloves are super warm without being turned on. It might be worth buying the gloves alone and then you can power them down the road. You would have to go with Warm n'safe controls though. I have heated grips and they are nice but do nothing for the back of your hand.
