    I rode today--30 degrees and not a ray of sunshine. It was cold. But I was not. I wore my Walls Blizzard Pruf overalls over my jeans; my Harley heated jacket liner under my leather jacket; heated gloves, and I was warm. I mean warm--not just comfortable!

    I love riding in the cold weather--when there's no ice. The heated stuff makes it possible to ride down in the 20's while staying comfortable. I recommend the stuff.

    I know what you mean about the face freezing! I now wear a full face helmet and I have a face-mask thingy for really cold temps. Even the eye-balls get cold sometimes. :52:

    ya i also like to ride in the cold as long as there is no salt or ice on the roads the heated gear works great:sd but at 17 deg:bigsmiley21: you should change the oil to a 10-30-10-40:bigsmiley10: the 20-50 is to thick at that temp and will not lube correctly:shock
