I don't believe ya. Let's see I can either:Put on the thermal layers (under armor top/bottom and thermal socks, plus glove liners), followed by the fleece-lined jeans/long sleeve shirt, maybe a small sweatshirt, followed by the widder vest and electric gloves, followed by the aerostich jacket, pants, a balaclava and neck warmer to seal the helmet to the jacket and vest with the heated collar) and waddle like the Michelin man out to the Sporty with the tall windshield and wind deflector guards for the hands, bend over plug in, and somehow find that even though I tucked my jeans in my boots under the aerostich pants there's still an air leak SOMEWHERE... and the helmet which is mostly sealed and using a pinlock to avoid fog is still got a wisp of cold air on my face, and then I hit highway speeds and it's like the wind is just coming through the whole outfit like a ghost anyway.ORI can remote start the Jeep, which turns the heated seat on too and get in it after less than 5 minutes and by 10 minutes I'm thinking I need to roll down a window cause I'm too hot.Nope, no way.... of course YMMV.I remember back in the 90's before my heated vest I used to wear a one-piece snowmobile suit for my 1.5 hour long commute. Even then I don't think I was ever REALLY warm...just not "cold" at best.
Well now wait a minute.Waddling never really bothers me much. I kinda waddle a little anyhow, even without my gear. And I gotta ask, where you get one these reeeemote controlled cars? Me, I got an ’02 Tracker that, while a fantastic vehicle otherwise, takes half my commute to truly warm up unless I want to scurry out to start it up early and scurry back in the house. A lot of scurrying there. I like waddling better. :1:
My Tracker is the 4d 4w4 hard top but I always envy the convertibles. That Jeep is sharp!
Heated grips are the way forward. Not only do they work, but you can vary the temperature to wear thinner gloves when it isnt arctic as well. These here cost about 35 bucks, go on easy and work. I have used them in too many DC winter commutes. I wired in a rheostat for infinate adjustment, but it comes with a HI-LO switch. Once you go electric, you never go back. Heated grips are a must for everyone of my bikes (including the work bike)
And Kev in So. Az So of Tucson it's not uncommon to leave at 9am and have it be 25-32 F. But it's sunny and should be 60-65 by noon with about 2% humidity. great ridding.
1. Heated Gloves...I have Gerbing2. Heated Grips3. Aerostich Triples....I was amazed at how much they helped with wind and air insulation. Learned this just putting them over regular gloves in cold weather when heated grips weren't keeping up. My Gerbing gear is 20 years old and still works great. Had one issue with a section of the jacket not getting up to temp. They fixed it free. Apparently guaranteed for life...
I have been using these oxford removable grips (they use velcro to wrap around existing grips). Easy to install, can easily be put on and off the bike and can get very hot and are not expensive.https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/oxford-hot-hands-heated-gripsso far so good. They are small enough that i can take them on my tank bag and install them in 1 minute on the side of the road if my hands get cold during my ride.
Interesting.... How are they wired?
They are wired through the battery. They draw less than 30 watts if I remember correctly. Cable goes from battery to the handle bars (very easy to install and to hide the wiring under gas tank side) and it has a quick release attachment for each heated grip. It comes with simple switch that I attach to the handle bar to turn the power on or off (it doesn't have different levels of heat, just on or off and that has been one of the complaints some people have because the grips can get quite hot but has not been a problem for me at all). In the summer I remove the switch (but keep the pig tail connection on the battery and the wiring that goes towards the handle bar. For the price, they do a very good job and provide enough heat even to go through my thick winter riding gloves. Sent from my Nexus 5 using Tapatalk
Sounds like a must for southern Jersey;)
Only if I take my bike instead of my Jeep with heated seats!!! [emoji6]
Now that you mention it, a heated motorcycle seat sounds desirable !
I believe BMW, Harley, and Corbin all make such things.... Maybe Sargent too, I forget.
