Better Weather

Yeah, the hour-and-change ride home from Roxboro was pretty cold. I got my new roadcrafter in the mail this morning, which helped. But I'm definitely getting an electric jacket & gloves.

I've struggled through winter for the last 4 or 5 years. Had electric gloves ordered at one point, but they never shipped. Some folks here can tell you about a place in NC that's well known for their cold weather gear, but the name eludes me right this second.
I had it down to the only thing that was actually bothering me, and bothering me a lot, on days in the 20s and 30s was my fingertips. New bike has heated grips. Rode with them cranked about half way up in the upper 30s the other day - with my vented summer gloves on - and was fine. This year is going to be MUCH easier.

Then you can grab a tag and get some heated gear! RD knew what he was doing.


You got this via Crapatalk

Engelfish, definitely check out the Gerbings factory in Stoneville. Last years gear is always a bit cheaper, and it is worth the money. I'm 48hrs into owning heated gear and wondering why I didn't do it years ago.

For what it is worth, I ride in a Roadcrafter too. I find it to be the perfect suit in NC. It is a bit warm in traffic in the summer, and a bit cool on the highway in winter. The Gerbings gear fits nicely under the 'Stich. If I hadn't gone to the factory, I certainly would have gotten the wrong size. Tabatha took all my measurements and put me in the perfect fitting gear. It was well worth the cold ride to get there.

I saw an article that they will be moving to Greensboro in the near future and have recently bought the Duckhead brand. I really, really hope that buying Duckhead doesn't backfire and damage the parent company.

I know some of you guys are still rocking your Duckhead pants from 20 years ago.
