Brrrrrrrrr

Rode the K1200S this morning to work. Brrrrrrrrr. There was frost on a lot of stuff.

I didn't even know how cold it was until I got to work. I was told between 29-30 degrees. I knew it was colder than Saturday. I could tell the difference.

Today I had the BMW leather jacket and the Warm and safe heated liner. Firstgear HT overpants and BMW gauntlet gloves. After about one mile, I plugged the liner in. Took the long way to work to get the engine warmed up. By the time I hit the 2nd mile on the freeway the liner was doing it's thing.

Got some strange looks when I got to work and a lot of aren't you cold questions. Only told one person of the heated liner trick.

This is the first day this winter I have not ridden to work, have to do my Christmas shopping today. I always feel like I'm cheating, when I take the 4 wheeled vehicle to work.

Yep, it was 32 when I left my house for work but was up to a balmy 36 by the time I got to the office. I was happy to have the heated vest, grips and seat this morning!

Ice everywhere

It was 27 when I left home and about 31 at work. The ice on the windshield and mirrors did not go away. I'm thinking about installing my heated helmet. The grips did melt the ice pretty quickly. The starter just spun on the first button push, engaged on the second. It ran at hi idle for awhile and the temp gauge never got to half way.

How many miles on your bike, Joe? I recently started my bike one cold morning, then stopped to fuel it up 1/2 mile later. After fueling, the starter just spun several times, so I eventually just push started the bike. The next 1,000 miles and several starts were fine and I've not had the problem repeat.

I figure it's my starter sprag clutch starting to stick, compounded by the cold weather. I need to get some CD-2 run through it soon.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Ever since I rotated off bikes and back to swing shift patrol, I’ve been riding my 650 GS to and from work. Being the only year ‘round rider, I get away with parking in the interior parking lot, in the covered spaces for the motors. Nice perk.

Coldest so far this year was just this last Saturday night (Sunday AM really) – 29 degrees on the way home.

Last Monday (a week ago today) it was a balmy 15 degrees (Fahrenheit) when I rode to work. For some reason, just knowing the Gerbing jacket liner, gloves, and socks are available makes me not want to break them out. My thinking is: As soon as I do that it will get really cold, and stay that way!

I don't think your theory is valid Howard. I wore all 4 pieces of Gerbing's all day Saturday. When I left home it was 28°, but when I returned it was 51°!!! And that was 1:17am in the morning! No Gerbing's needed (thank God!)...but it was nice knowing that I had them on if needed. Just turn the knobs until lightly toasted.

Oh yes I would say it was very cold this morning. I took my trainee on a long ride to Stinsen Beach, San Francisco, cross the Oakland Bay Bridge, back up I-80 to home. All in all it was a nice cold ride until we got to the coast...

yup. My finger tips started to feel the pain from the cold (no heated grips). Time to invest in a heated glove.

Let me clarify: that's no theory, that's wishful thinking on my part! Essentially, I'm saying if I can ride at 15 degrees without my Gerbing gear then I can ride with them when it gets really cold. On the other hand, halfway to work -- at 15 degrees -- I was wishing I had that stuff on!

Time is the real opponent when it comes to riding in cold temps. Thirty minutes or less, who cares? But much more than 30 minutes, and I'm gearing up. The colder you allow your hands and feet to get, the slower your reaction times, and motor skills are compromised. Doesn't sound like a good combo to me.

FWIW, "cold" is a relative term. Depends on the bike you're riding, the speeds you're riding, day or night, and how long you're riding.

Thanks. If this will work on the K1200S (should be the same grips) all I will need is an auxiliary switch.

At the bike show here in Northern California, Gerbings had a big booth. Very impressive, lot's of clothing to try on. Only problem was, only two people working the swamped booth, nothing in stock, everything was a special order at full retail plus handling/shipping and sales tax. No thanks, I'll deal with Raffy who knows what customer service is all about.

I bought direct from Warm & Safe, because I wanted to try things on and get the right fit. Turns out the address they gave in San Diego was their house, but I got fitted and they were great to deal with.

And I really can't see the point of leaving it in the saddlebags. Maybe it's my thin SoCal blood, but if it's gonna be below 60 and I'm riding more than 1/2 hour or so, then the jacket is on and plugged in. It may not get turned on right away, but I know that I can just twist the knob and I'm warm.

I bought the socks to go with my other Gerbing stuff. You are right, they were swamped, and it was all full price, but they gave me free shipping.

I used the stuff today, rode to Antioch for a meeting and back on the River Road , nice to have heated clothing, especially with no fairing.

Well if they had the stuff with them you wouldn't have to pay shipping anyway, so they really gave you nothing.
Whoever posted the thing about them being swamped and not having the gear on hand convinced me.
If I
m going to buy any I'll just order it from Raffy, they have been right on the ball with anything I've gotten from them.

At last year's IMS in Cleveland the Gerbing booth was packed every time I went by. Basically had to stake out an employee and then nab them before he helped someone else. There was no line, pretty chaotic. Felt sorry for the employees, actually.

They had a ton of stuff in stock (products and sizes) and I picked up what I needed. They also spent a lot of time with me ensuring a good fit, etc.

Livermore, on Livermore Av. just about a mile N of 580, Tuesday hit a spot that was 20 degrees, and on Wednesday the same spot warmed up a bit to 25. Pretty much cut through the gloves, the rest was nice and toasty though.

Just rode home in the rain. Stop and go in the rain sucks. The visor can't get enough air to clear out the excess water.

I have an idea to divert the rain from coming in when the visor is opened (to eliminate fogging). Hope I can make it work.

If you can make it work I'll buy it!
