Sim, I've never had a heated seat or grips either. I've always felt if heated grips were going to help, then I need to get better gloves. Granted, I'm in Texas, but I frequently get out of state. I think the coldest I've ridden in has been 17F. Several times, I've done a long day below 30F.
We have members here that will boast about heated clothing, especially Gerbings and Tourmaster. In the past I have worn Gerbins jacket, pants and gloves, but not for a few years now. Its been the "Freeze Out" line from Cyclegear, fleece lined jeans, wool socks, etc. Layers!!! And I have been comfortable without messing with a bunch of wires.
Its really a matter of comfort and safety. If you can get that without the high-tech, great. Of course, you can spend more to get all the latest stuff, but is the amount of riding your doing at those temps worth the added cost?

Ride often. Ride far. Ride safe and do much more of both.
Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach him how to surf the GWOF and he won't bother you for weeks, months, maybe years.
Remember, women always have the last word in an argument. Anything you say after that will be the beginning of the next argument.
