I headed out at 35 degrees this morning

Going down the freeway at 70 mph puts the temp hitting my hands at 16.47 F. No wonder ice formed on my shield, mirrors and hands, when I ran into fog. Got one of these last week, very warm, by First gear.........


Needless to say I ordered some heated gloves when I got home.

I ride all winter long including back and forth to work...my cutoff point is the mid teens depending on dewpoint...I do not use heated gear...it's a technology thing with me...I don't have a cell phone either. I do have some quality winter gear though.

My truck has a good heater, and it works fine on those cold days. :bigthumbsup:

I'll ride in the low to mid 40's to work, providing it warms up sometime during the day. The sun low in the morning does a decent job of keeping me warm plus the temp goes up at least 5 degrees once I get out of the mountains. I don't like bundling up so much I can't move just to enjoy a ride, but about mid January I start changing my mind a little. :D

actully, any temp is fine, below 40, ok getting cold, but once the numbing begins owell,,,,LOL PS the winter is usally around high 50s to mid 60s. Riding up in the mountains when is in the 20s its cold enough.:bigthumbsup:

LOL I've gotten to the same thinking....when I had the BMW and all kinds of fun heated stuff on the bike (grips/seats) I didn't mind brisk cold day rides

the 9 does nothing to keep any wind off of you....I've become a warm weather rider only....plus I've gotten to not really enjoy putting on a 1 piece with all that padding and stuff...I guess I should sell it lol

The suit actually flexes great and I was able to tear up blue ridge just fine. It was the ride back to newport news at about 8 at night that froze my fingers. Only way Ima ride in the 30's on long trips is with heated gloves.

I'm working on fabricating some hand deflectors for the Z1K so maybe I won't need heated gloves. :dontknow:

I own the same suit and I love it. Except for the zipper that broke in the right pant leg. I'm still looking for someone who can fix it. It's too nice of a suit to waste. I still use it but have to zip the leg up from the bottom, instead of down from the top. I have ridden with this suit at 28 degrees and was comfortable, all except for my hands. I have not found any glove that keeps my hands warm below 30.

I never mess with the lower zippers. I prob I have with the suit is, the zipper in the front doesn't sip up from the bottom for pit stops LOL Other then that it is great and with the heated gloves now I am OK to 20 degrees or so LOL brrrrrrrrrr
