Get some thin glove liners to wear under your regular gloves, and maybe a fleece sweater with the collar up under the jacket. Helps to keep out the cold a little more than gloves and jacket alone. I have some military glove liners designed to keep the rubber chem warfare gloves from sticking so I use those when it gets really cold out... helps even with my Gerbing heated gloves.
Rode to work all but Monday this week so far. Cool mornings so heated gloves and extra jacket "liner" as mentioned. Warmer ride home. Frogg Toggs rain suit needed this morning with drizzle and low 40s. The Toggs add just a little warmth but more importantly keep my gear bone dry and comfy.
I have three different sets of glove liners, and NONE of them seem to work for me. While I was at the dealer yesterday I bought some Joe Rocket "Sub-Zero" gauntlet gloves, which seem pretty good, so we will see. I've been looking at heated gloves and liners all week on Amazon, and I will probably need some eventually, but most of them have to be wired into the bike battery. That's fine, but as you know I'm trying to plan the wiring for this bike very carefully and am not really ready to wire anything in yet. Also, the price tag for even liners was a shocker once you add a heat controller, too. I want more time to make a decision on this, both in choosing a system and deciding how to wire it in while still keeping it discreet and looking like part of the bike. Besides, I can live with ONE chilly ride; it's only about 10 miles from the dealer to my house. At worst case I can stop at all of the McDonalds' along the way to warm up my hands! I'm also considering getting the Hondaline heated handgrips when they are available, so I hate to invest in something else until then.
I have a nice warm Columbia fleece jacket that will fit under my leather Schott jacket. The collar comes up and should snug right around the base of my full-face helmet. That will be over my new Honda "Wing" T-shirt
that I am wearing kind of for good luck, I guess. Jeans with chaps over them, and tall boots. My experience is that everything is easy to keep warm EXCEPT my fingers.
I have a rainsuit that works surprisingly well for its low cost. It's black (big surprise) with yellow accents. Kind of a "bumblebee" look but it keeps me dry! Or it should--I haven't actually needed to wear it yet. It will be going into one of the saddlebags right away.
As long as I can get that bike into my garage on Saturday I will be a very happy camper, even if it takes me awhile to warm up again. That's what hot chocolate is for!
