 Another fan of heated clothing here, I have the Keis jacket with sleeves, it is a bit bulky, particularly the very high neck, but is like wearing an electric blanket. If I'm lucky I might get the insoles for Christmas  :002:
 I found the lead from the Din socket was too long so I attached straight from the battery this afternoon.

Guess I'm the odd one out. Gebring gloves and Keis insoles so I have 2 leads  :001: because I haven't (so far) felt the need for a jacket. Mine are connected to a Fuzeblock under the seat. Seperate switched feeds so I don't have to worry about killing my battery when I turn off the engine at a level crossing or they happen to close the motorway I am on while they clear a wreck out of the way. Also means I don't have to unplug for fear of sparks when I stop for petrol.

I bought Keis heated gloves and long sleeved jacket at the NEC last week.  Have only tried them in the garage so far but it's amazing!  Hoping it will avoid me needing to wear 100  layers under my outers, like some sort of michelin (wo)man !!!!  Must just remember to unplug when I get off the bike  :745:

I did try the Gerbing jacket and gloves, but they were sooooo stiff and bulky, and didn't fit properly.  Keis much softer fabric and more comfortable.

I wear a goose down gillet, works for me. Triumph winter gloves are fine.

I really struggle with the cold.  Proper winter gloves = can't feel a thing or reach indicators etc.  Heated grips - don't help a huge amount, but help a bit.  And I end up with thermal top, jumper, fleece, thermal liner, outer layer, and I'm still cold.  Then if I've gone to work it's an issue disrobing and putting a work top on.  Hoping the heated jacket will do away with pretty much all those layers!!

You got hand guards?

Maybe need to get tucked into pie barms, get some warm fat on yer bones.

Spring is the time for shifting excess pie! Not when you're writing out your Christmas cards.  :015:

That's my excuse anyway .........
