    Re: Who's still riding

    I'm out whenever I can. I dont mind being cold, or wet, but dont like being cold _and_ wet. I guess that time will be here all too soon.

    I bought myself a 2nd hand XR back in May of this year to do my euro-trip (Rimini and back with the offspring on her bike) so that gets used more often recently, but I'm picking up a brand spanking RR on Friday in exchange for my 2017 one (I shall be very sad to see her go) and am hoping that the new RR will survive the cold, shitty roads as I really dont intend having the limiter on there for long.

    +1,

    I will be out as much as I can next week as I'm off work. If the weather is kind (no Ice/frost) and the BnB's are open I fancy a few days away.

    A heated vest really helps, just in case anyone is still running around without one. A heated balaclava would be ideal too if such a thing exists!

    I bought my 1st set of heated gloves (yeah, I know the Beemers have heated grips) and I have to say, they're brilliant. The heat permeates through your body, so you're generally warmer throughout. I've got to sort out a replacement set though, despite them being 2 uses old, the right hand glove has gone wonky ... sigh....

    Heated vest is next on the agenda, followed by nappies and a GS (dont hurt me!)

    You must get a heated vest! Total bliss. I’d recommend getting one that’s a snug fit AND with sleeves, more expensive but worth it. Mine is a Keiss (sp?) by no sleeves and slightly too big.... trust me, spend the $$$ and get it right. The added bonus to a heated vest is that you’re not restricted by loads of layers, so you can move around and enjoy.

    I've got the Keis vest and gloves and with both on, no heated sleeves needed. Oh, and the heat in the collar just makes everything nicer.


    Now, all I need is a heated seat like the one on my KTM and my winter would be perfect!

    Heated gloves work for me. Absolute bliss. I always find if your hands are like toast, the rest of you is too.

    had a nice run down to Brighton yesterday, about 130 round trip, but looking at the forecasts that's it for this year, down to my kdx250 until the spring!
