I see they're going out of business. Not sure how they would work on my bike anyways with clip ons and no hand guards.

I may just get heated gloves and be done with it.

i have a pair of gerbings G3 Gloves. I like them very much they are quite warm and i dont even have them hooked up to my bike(s)...but I am still comtemplating buying the harness and temp troller and going all the way. The gloves were slightly used from a friend for $60... The harness and troller would set me back another $100 or so...

Technically, you don't need the 'troller. You can set them up on a simple on/off switch, which works great if you do short rides. You could also buy a resistor to create a Hi/Lo/Off type switch.

You could also just go with a Variable Heat Controller from Hot Grips and wire that in. It is simply a PWM module that cycles power. I run one on my grips and it works great. They run around $30.

The harness itself is only $10. They Y connector is another $17. The switch assembly could be done for $5 at Radio Shack.

Edit: Come to think about it, I may have a harness laying around. Let me do some digging.

You can sign in and we really enjoyed reading how people from all over came to see this.





That place is just cool...
Used to stop there all the time on the way to/from Va. You guys should have grabbed the triangle tag on your ride..

This is a tempting tag. Some of my favorite roads are up that way. We'll see if it makes it to the weekend.

I ordered a pair of Hippo Hands before I left AK, man they're bigger than I thought
well made, but I haven't fitted them yet, after going to Jacksonville/Wilmington to see the new Grandson and family, I just haven't had time (since I had to squeeze some riding in before I head back tomorrow)
I'll mount 'em up when I get back the end of Jan and let you know how they work.

for me it's all about fingers and toes now.

my ultra-lite areostich, tourmaster jacket liner, olympia wind proof liner and the micro fleece aerostich zipover pants over jeans did me just fine coming home a couple nights ago from TN down around 27-28 degF.

somewhere in the move home the heated glove liners disappeared and man I miss 'em

grip heaters do not heat the tips of my fingers nor the ever frozen right thumb

If you've never seen it, you have to go. Tag or not. It's really one of the neatest things I think... Just impressive

So tempting this AM. but the threat of getting rained on in the 40s, is keeping me from making a dash for it!
