What Do YOU Want For Christmas?

OK guys...motorcycle wise...what do you want for Christmas?

I want a GPS and factory installation kit for my GT, but will probably have to settle for a CeeBailey Windshield (Those dang kids, you know. They think Christmas is all about them!)

With 10 days off all I want is a few snow free riding days! I am cheating and flying to Vegas for a few days - no snow there

Rev-it Farenhiet Gloves

Anybody have any experirnce with them?
They look pretty slick.
Good fit and control, waterproof, and they say the PCM material transfers the heat from the grips to all over the glove. Sounds too good to be true.

Also want a z-Technics top rack

I have some Held winter gloves made with Outlast phase change material. It does work to a degree and helps spread the heat from the grips more evenly around your hands. But it is a passive system, and proper heated gloves just work better. So if you hate wires and don't plan on riding below freezing then the PCM gloves are worth a look.

Good choice, that is what I am commuting in 110 miles a day (in Maine). it has been low teens in the mornings, but "warming" up to the 30's Just got this about a month ago. well worth the $$.

I don;t need anything really. TIME to ride would be nice. I really want to get proper jackets for my kids for when they ride. And new gloves for them. That would be my Christmas motorcycle wants.

A pair of abrasion-resistant, durable riding pants that go easily on and off over my jeans, so I can quickly take them off when I get to work, and quickly put them on when I leave. They should be protective, but must also be cool in the summer heat (100+).

I have been wearing ordinary denim jeans all these years, and have been lucky.

Any suggestions?

Gerbings jacket (gray). I've already bought the duel controller (thanks, Paul) just in case I also get pants, gloves, socks...

This summer we had a garage sale. All the stuff that didn't sell got shoved into the garage where it still sits.

What I want for Christmas is to have my garage back so the motorcycle can go back in it. It has been parked in the carport since August.


I just got a new Kilamanjaro jacket and a new Halo band. Those were the only other things on my wish list.

If you look at the map and don't care where you are, you're not lost.

She Who Must Be Obeyed has said that I can't spend any more on my new K1200S so I'm hoping Santa will bring me a mount for my satellite radio.

And a center stand.

And a Throttlemeister.

And a MRA windscreen.

And a Rick Mayer seat.

And a tail trunk.

And some PIAA lights.



But I'm sure I'll end up with a sweater and one of those decorated tin cans of flavored popcorn.

Oh, God

Where would I start ? How about a Kon Tour seat ? (I have an RT). Or, a new GS, under the tree ? Mostly, I'd like to ride somewhere, anywhere, that doesn't get cell phone reception.

I want/need something that won't fit down the chimney.

Pete, I hope you get your wish. It's refreshing to see a wish that is is so simple, and has nothing to do with money. Isn't that what the spirit of the season is about?

My wish for this season is that everyone could stop thinking about # 1, for just ONE HOUR, and do something for someone else who can never repay them.
