I refused to not ride this winter so I made a few investments recently...

Warm and Safe heated Jacket liner
Warm and Safe heated gloves
Dual Remote Heat troller from Warm and Safe
First Gear (Warm and Safe) HT 2.0 overpants with insulated liner

I would whole heartedly reccomend this setup. I did a lot of research and warm and safe seems to be the best gear. Setup is a snap as well. All that is permenantly on the bike is one battery lead that easily hides away when not in use. Plug in the liner to the bike lead, gloves into the liner and you're off. I also glued a magnet onto the remote heat troller so I can leave it in my pocket or stick it to the bike and it allows for infinite adjustment of liner and gloves wirelessly through the reciever in the jacket liner. I'm in the DC area and rode to work yesterday at 28 degrees and had to turn the liner down b/c I was sweating!! It will put you back around $600 or so, but the stuff really works. Just my 2 cents:)

Good info, boofarn! I'm sure a lot of people are struggling with this issue about now, and are wondering what to do about it. Seems like you've found an optimal solution.

Cheers

its terrible here in MA. i am dieing. i need to ride so bad but its in the garage covered and stored for the winter. its not even the cold but the sand and salt on the roads. then at the end of the season you hope they quickly sweep the old sand so you can start riding safely early. :/

Hey Minion I know the feeling as well. I am also located in MA looking at my metalic red fury covered in the garage just wondering when the next time I'll be on it. Where in MA are you located?? Dave

The salt here has affected me as well. I try not to ride when it's snowing or shortly after of course, but every now and then you just get caught! I recently spent about 6 hours cleaning and polishing the bike then 2 days later got caught in the snow/ice combo. Anyways, the heated gear really does extend your riding year, the only thing is it's a bit of work to put on. It's great for a weekend trip or a Saturday ride, but for a 30 minute ride to work, as much as I hate to admit it, it's easier to jump in the car. For anyone who is interested though and doesn't have experience with the heated gear....it's most definitely not a gimmick. Happy trails
