Just wanted some input here.....I have a 2003 that I would like to install the Hondaline heated grips, but I hear of some controller issues. Is there a better heated grip? Thanks for sharing.
You just answered for me. That is the best combination. You will be so cozy.Thanks gentlemen, I'm leaning towards the Gerbing heated jacket liner and gloves. That way my hands will be warm all over. Also thanks for the warm(pardon the pun)welcome. Just bought the wing in August and I'm over 3k miles so far.
I get it. You are saying we should do in the winter time what the Harley riders do in the summer? We are supposed to ride our bikes to the closest bar and park in front?Two prime regions of the body to protect from cold: body core and extremities (fingers/toes). Core temp is a no brainer as you're risking hypothermia. But if your fingers and toes get cold, misery will be your pillion the whole way. Fingers are typically more sensitive to the elements as you use them more when riding, and boots are usually thicker and more weather resistant and wind proof. Couple areas that can get easily overlooked is your throat and cheeks. any snowmobiler will tell you that frostbite on the cheeks and throat is a very real threat at 20 below. Couple sub zero temps with 60+ mph and you have frozen flesh just waiting to happen. That's certainly more extreme conditions than m/c riders face, but windchill factors start coming into play at well above freezing ambient temps. Be careful!
