    Hello everyone. I'm looking to get some information on what is good to wear for some winter riding as long as there not snow on the ground I'll take a ride.

    Dress in layers, I like wearing Under Armour Heated gloves if you have them and a face mask

    your windshield makes it easy,but the one on a RK won't help your hands,good insulated gloves or heated are good,snowmobile suits or even bottoms with the suspenders are what I use.And layers as stated,then if it warms up you can shed some.

    Nothing better then the leathers, chaps, coat and gloves. Cutting the wind makes a huge differences.

    I like layers & leather, tight next to skin then looser as you go out. If you don't have leather, rain gear blocks wind & traps heat pretty well. I use a neoprene face mask with my shorty helmet, or a face shield with my 3/4 helmet. A chemical hand warmer packet from the sporting good store in the toe of each boot. Geezer gave me a heated Gerbing vest last Feb., so no more layers on top for me. :lero
