I have been riding year round year for the last 4 yrs...
and freezing may ass off. I was finding that more than an hour became uncomfortable especially around + 3-4.
and the part that worried me was losing feeling in my right hand and not being able to brake properly.
Well I finally ponied up some $$ for some Gerbing heated gear.
I rode for 4 hrs today and it felt like summer without the sweat.
I stopped to gas up and kept going. If anyone has been sitting on the fence about that decision. DON'T!!! it's better than you can possibly imagine.
I got the gerbing long sleeve liner and some t5 gloves. with the controller and leather case it came out to $480usd and $60ca for duty. Out dollar is strong now so a great time to hook it up.
I don't need the pants, my full fairing and undertail exhaust pays off in the winter. I would recommend them if you ride a naked.
anyway, just thought I would share, my experience.
Now I can go back to some of my cooler looking gear now too and stop looking like a fat kid in a snowsuit. lol
