    if you have a heated jacket, you buy heated gloves. they plug into handy cords provided at the end of the sleeves. I don't have one but I know someone who does.

    I did actually know that. Never had to use heated vest/'jackets or heated grip/gloves in my past either. Just adapt to what weather protection the bike does or does not have....Seemed to get around both islands for decades in all sorts of weather conditions though....Did random things like in midwinter when it's pissing down pop over to see the folks in Havelock North via the Taihapi- Napier road before it was sealed just for the hell of it.

    Seeing as I found a set of old Daytona heated grips in my paerts stash I'm going to try them out and make up my own mind how useful they are. The XF doesn't have the greatest m/c charging system so may even have the add another source of electrickery storage. Maybe even a dynamo the back wheel....

    Sweat wipes off. Road-rash doesn't.

    Me. I'm holding it back.
    I was just thinking Yesterday. I'm about the age Hitler was when he shot himself. Puts into perspective how little I've done with my life.

    no, heated jacket warms the core and sends blood to the fingers and toes, normally when you get cold the body limits the flow to these areas and that's why you're so cold.

    i used to tough it out till i went to the bras with a mate who had heated grips, knew we would be pushing it so grabbed a heated jacket. i'd only use it at a pinch cause toughing it out was part of the adventure, but then i found how clear the mind was when not cold, it wasn't a case of being warm i sought after that it was a clearer head which meant is was a much safer ride simply. with the jacket too i didn't have to bulk up on clothes, everything was betterer
