Yup. H-D does not sell the elctric socks. I got mine from Gerbing. I love them. :banana: I rode about 200 miles yesterday (went out for coffee ) . Temp was about 18 degrees when I left home and rocketed up to 29 by the time I got back. Had the thermostat on "high" for the whole trip. I think you need the thermostat, because I used the stuff when the temp was about 40 degrees and it was to hot. I turned them down to about half power. I use a poly long sleeve T shirt as the base layer, then the H-D electric jacket liner, then an Aerostich fleece windbreaker. Have my regular riding boots over the electric socks. H-D electric gloves are worth the cost (may be other cheaper ). I have a full face Scorpio helmet and I wear a balcalava (spelling?) under it. At 65 MPH its like riding in a well controlled toaster oven. Good visibility, good mobility and the look on other peoples faces is a hoot. Whats important to me is that I am not distracted from "driving" by being cold. Two cautions (1) If you do not wear a full face helmet year round, you have to get used to more limited visibilty - keep your head moving. (2) - cagers do NOT expect to see scooters out in the winter. If possible, be extra alert to this fact. I am glad the heated stuff is available, because I love to ride and I do not want to give it up just because the weather is cold (won't ride in ice or snow).TNHARLEY said:Anybody using the HD electric clothing? If so what are your comments on the gloves, jacket and socks? Did you also buy the thermostat for them? Mike
Nope, have not tried it, but heard of it (good reports). Here is another one that I have not tried, but a couple of hunters I know say it is really good for cold weather. The name is Carol Davis Sportswear and the web site is www.cdsportswear.com (question for you computer guru's - how do you embed the web site address so readers just have to click on the descripton?) Its pricy also.adlerx said:anyone tried that UnderArmour?
I just bought some UnderArmor Cold Gear. Haven't tried it riding yet, but did wear it around the house for a couple of hours to get a feel for it. Even though it's tight, it isn't restrictive at all. What does feel weird though is that I didn't feel warm with it on. The whole time I was wearing I felt cool, so I ventured out on the deck (about 35 degrees outside) and hung out for about 10 minutes. I can't say I got cold, but that weird cool feeling was still there. I'll have a better idea when I put it on with some other clothing.adlerx said:anyone tried that UnderArmour? They make a "cold" line that is supposed to be extremly toasty, very lightweight and comfy too. I was checking it out today, the chick in the sports store says it is the total sheite, made primarily for winter sports like skiing and snowboarding, it's designed for use in temps in the zero range! $50 for the pants(they look like tights) so they aint cheap. Looking for someone who has tried em before I take the plunge.
