    My wife spoiled me this year and got me a pair of Gerbings G3 gloves, and a temp controller for christmas. I had been casually looking at them but really didnt want to spend that much money on gloves. However, I am completely blown away with how nice they are. Most of my winter rides have been a short 20-30 mile ride around town. After that my hands are frozen and I cant move them. However, I went out for over one hundred miles yesterday at highway speeds and my hands never got cold. I could have kept riding except the rest of me was cold instead of my hands! For anybody considering heated gear I would strongly recommend Gerbings. There is a lifetime warranty on the heated elements and the quality is superior. I would say they are worth every penny and now I cant wait to buy more of their clothing.

    After over 20 years of putting the bike away around October, November( N. E. NY) this year I started with the gloves and jacket liner. I just added the socks. WOW, extended my riding season into December and with traction I could ride year round. I haven't even put the windshield on my Road King. Riding in the cold weather is great when warm and toasty. As many others have said " wish I had gotten heated gear sooner". Enjoy !!

    I bought some of their heated gloves last month and absolutely love them. I would like to get a heated jacket liner from them too, but living in Dallas, Texas, it's hard to justify spending too much on heated gear. But I think between the jacket liner and gloves, I'll be set. Chaps and the lower fairings do a good enough job keeping my legs warm.

    The G3 Gerbings are as good as it gets. I'm sorry I didn't get them much earlier than I did.

    I'm surprised you can ride that long in your part of the country, even with heated gear. Cold is one thing but snow is another. I was stationed in Fort Drum for four years so I know all about the snow up there. I felt sorry for my poor wife. During our first year of marriage I was deployed to Iraq and she had to do all the snow removal that year by herself. She might be small but she's tough as nails!

    I have ridden in the low 30's. Hope I'm not to optimistic. Like I said it's a matter of traction. NO SNOW, NO SNOW !!

    I love heated gear. I was told it would extend my riding season by two months, which around these parts is now year round. I love that question about too cold. Often I just show the wires hanging from my waist. I showed my jacket & pants to a shivering flagging lady, I thought she was gonna kiss me. lol I want to make my own when this gear packs in. My jacket is on season 3 and used very often, is still going strong.
    This is a cool little handy/help for homemade heated clothing.
