Had a meeting 2+ hours away from the house last week, Wednesday, to be precise. Temps were in the 30s, but 'twas dry out, so I opted to take the RT. Probably should grab the heated gear, just in case. So, on with the sock, pant, jacket, and glove liners. Slid on my balaclava and off I went.
About 40 minutes into the ride, with temps in the low 30s, I notice that I'm freaking COLD! At my destination, I realized I had the wiring from the remote receiver on my Warm and Safe gear all fouled up. So, that's why I was so cold.
I fixed the wiring for the ride home and about 30 minutes into that
ride, with temps in the high 20s, I was even colder than before! What gives??? Oh, and it was snowing too! Yippee!!!!
So, a quick email to Warm and Safe once I got home (and after about an hour-long hot shower!) and it turns out the BMW plug doesn't pull enough power to run all that gear? Then, why do they sell that adapter? Anyway, patiently waiting for the direct-to-battery harness to arrive so I can make sure all that heated crap actually works! Everything worked fine on the old RT, but I had the direct-to-battery harness on that and neglected to take it off after I totaled that bike last summer.
No point to the rambling here, just wanted to share. And, you know I like to share....
