We are considering buying heated clothing for late fall early spring riding. We ride a 93 GL1500 Aspencade. Anyone have suggestions or wisdom on what is the best to buy?

Thanks for any input.

Hi Bill. Gerbing is best. You may want to try this ebay store.http://stores.ebay.com/Team-Pompton-Racing They are absolutely the best I've ever dealt with but don't know if they do international shipping. Good luck!

Cyclemax has very competitive pricing, free fast shipping for Gerbing's heated clothing, not to mention great service!

Another brand of heated clothing that others are giving a 'thumbs up' , is the ' Synergy ' line, from Tourmaster. Their line includes the temp controller, saving you a few $$, as you have to buy those separately with the other manufacturers. I can't comment on the difference in quality/effectiveness between the two brandsthough.

Right now(until December 14th) Wingstuff.com(slow to ship, 5-7 days )has a sale going on, with a 10% off promotion on almost everything they sell(coupon code - Jingle Bells), including their Synergy line of electric clothing. Once the goods are shipped, they arrive in 3-5 days here in upstate WA(my US shipping address).

Both places will ship internationally, to Canada, but expect high shipping costs. Getting them shipped USPS is the most cost effective/preferred method of cross border shipping as they(Canada Post) only charge you a flat $5 Brokeragefee per package(plus taxes), while UPS/FedEx etc, charge very exorbitant amounts, for their "Brokerage fees"!!

If you are currently close to the US border, look for a shipping/receiving business that will accept these shipments and hold them for you,(do a google search)for about $4 per package.

Hey Foodman, looks like you have the exact same bike as I do.So how do you upgrade the alternator to handle heated clothing? It this a big job?
