Does everyone have mits over there heated grips. Iv never had any myself this year I finnialy got fed up of not been able to feel my hands by the time I got to work and brought some heated gloves. the putting all the cables in is a right pain. But I couldnt see how the heated grips would keep my hands warm the air flows over the top, thats the bit that gets cold

I tried bar muffs but couldn't stand them getting in the way in the rain, when you have to take your hand out to wipe your visor in traffic. Binned them. Now fitted Barkbusters Storm S1s fantastic, not as warm as muffs but way more practical and look better! Barkbusters are brilliant to deal with too! If your bike isn't on their list (mine wasn't) contact them and they'll be as helpful as you could wish for! I'd tried a couple of "universal" brands that I was assured would fit by dealers but wouldn't. Then found Barkbusters who were ace, the U.K dealer told me they wouldn't fit but Barkbusters in Australia said they would and they do! Crikey....I've gone on a bit!

my set of gerbins heated clothing. after about 2 mins it feels like your emersed in a hot bath from neck to toe . ive not got the gloves @£200 a pair . but if you can keep your heart warm it keeps blood pumping around all of your body and you dont get blood loss from fingers or toes or brain . so you can keep full concentration on the road to, very important even more so on wintry roads.
