As a newbie to the GW family I am looking to be nice and toasty this winter as I ride. I have done some research and have become even more confused. Any suggestions as to the best gear to buy and where to buy it from?
Gerbings makes the best out there. They have heated gloves,socks, pants,and jacket liners. They can be hooked to an on/off switch or they offer a thermostat, so you won't have to keep turning them on and off.They also come with a lifetime repair on their stuff. That's for wiring issues only. If you take a fall and grind off the fabric, your sol.Shop around for price it really varies. I believe you can go online and order direct from them. I got my gloves from a local Bmw dealer as the were cheaper then at the Harley dealer. And I believe they make Harley's line , then just add the name and mark it up.,,
There you go ! chrisbraz... One piece snowmobile suit, thinsalate gauntlet style gloves.. ski mask.. full helmet..And some snowmobile boots too. You could mount a snowmobile ski under the front tire for the bad days... just kidding here chris.. But an insulated one piece suit would be your best bet along with the type of gloves mentioned here.. i use them... love'em when it gets cold. knowbuddy welcome to the forum !
One of the nice things about the gerbings is you can get a regulator that allows you to set the temp of the gloves different than the jacket a/o pants. 3 zones. Jackets are already set up for this regulator.
I am already wearing a sweater in the office it is so cold
No joke, the building is on a common a/c ducted system, no zones. Can't turn it off, with the outside air now down to 92* the office temps are dropping to 72* and lower. Add the fact the a/c duct drops right down onto my office desk, and you got hypothermia big time.
w/o a doubt i would suggest gerbings jacket liner and their new g3 gloves,several sites on ebay allow for u to place an offer and they usually will take about a 40% off bid, nice thing about the gerbing jacket liner is that it has a hookup from the gloves into the jacket and then if you run the dual temp controller you can connect directly to it from the bottom of the jacket and dont have to run a cable from the gloves up thru the jacket using a separate cable and another for the jacket,course you can run w/o a controller but have found that in most cases running w/o a controller makes your hands get too hot in 30 deg weather
