I tell you 2 hours at highway speed, air temps 25...it was freekin cold. Heated grips on high, seat on high, windshield up, faired bike. I swapped the quilted lining in the pants for the Gerbing electric pants, so when they failed, they were not as warm as the quilted liner would have been, I had ski socks and panty hose on (chicks long johns). I had my favorite turtle neck, gerbing jacket and RevIT jacket, plus a balaclava. My new first gear electric gloves.

The big guy helped me with the electrical math (after the fact) we think the gloves pushed everything over the top. I think if I'd disconnected the pants, I could have had the gloves and jacket...but I didn't think of that at the time. I think the BMW plug maxes out at 10 amp. He's going to run a lead right from the battery for me...I'll try it out locally!!

Here I am getting ready to leave last night, with my Google directions
