    Gerbing heated vest...

    Why didn't I buy this thing years ago. It's the best thing yet!! What a nice comforatable, relaxed ride, when your back is not cold!!

    Funny thing is, I think mine is somehow short circuited and effecting the throttle somehow...

    You should try the jacket... Sleeves, mmmmm, heated sleeves. I got one of each. Oh, and get some grip heaters too. Cheap and just as wonderful as the vest.

    i think I'd rather have the pants then the vest. The rest of me stays warm. maybe next year.

    It's all water under the bridge, and we do enter the next round-robin. Am I wrong?

    I wonder though, how they are under jeans for commuting. Seems like if my core is warm the rest is bearable.

    I ordered it many weeks ago, and due to my own error, it was delayed. I received it yesterday and wanted to try it out.

    Besides, we are in New England afterall, and this warm weather is not here to stay yet and I live and work near the ocean...those early morning rides to work past the beaches and over the bridge still can be quite chilly.

    bigred has a linky to some heated gear as well and it is a little less expensive and I believe it can be installed in your current jacket.

    I wear my Gerbings any time it's below 60 F. Don't always turn it on though. The Heattroller makes it easy to stay comfy too.

    check my sig...she does a great job and can wire whatever you want her too(even a "stich" suit)...for a fraction of gerbing prices. She uses the same stuff as them too i rode 12/14 this year and it was around 28 when i started out....worked great!


    I have the liner for my columbia jacket done and a pair of these - http://www.newenough.com/joe_rocket_...glove_page.htm


    the cool thing is she uses batt. tender connections so all you need to do is connect it there if you have a tender...

    the best place I have found to buy Gerbings is at http://www.vencowings.com/cgi-bin/miva.cgi?/Merchant2/merchant.mv+Screen=SRCH&Store_Code=VWL&Search=Gerbing

    their prices are competitive and they have stuff in stock to try on

    they are only a few miles from the tract, on rt 129 in Loudon

    We are not even close to out of heated jacket season yet...

    I haven't used mine in a while but I wouldn't dream of going on a multi-day overnight ride without it.

    All it takes is a 40 degree rainy day in the middle of your trip and you will be wearing that heated jacket all day.

    I must be a total wimp. I have used mine every morning since I started commuting to work by bike 3-4 weeks ago. Generally stays in the tank bag in the afternoons though.

    Like ben sez, always bring heated gear on a multi day trip even in the hottest part of the summer

    down at deals gap, 70-80 in the lowlands might be 45 at 6000 ft on the cherohala,

    rain is another reason, no need to be cold & wet when you can be warm & wet

    I just sold all of mine and renee's heated gear

    (jacket, pants, gloves, socks)


    I don't think I'll be street riding for awhile, otherwise I would have kept them.

    NOTHING beats a full set of heated gear when riding in the cold or wet (under rain suit, of course)

    It's one thing to "not be cold" ... it's another thing to be comfortably warm.

    How long ago did you say you were done with track riding and were going to do the street riding? Does that mean you sold the Gold Wing when you got the CBR?

    done with track riding?

    I don't think I ever said that.

    I loved the GoldWing... just was time to move on.

    I'm thinking a convertible car for a while. The track days and the dirt bike give me enough two wheel fun.

    Is it even possible for a motorcycle racer to have a midlife crisis?

    MLC kind of implies a boring buttoned-down life.

    I like to think... 1/3rd life crisis.

    I gotta hit 120 years before I die, right?
