It's not a cheap investment but believe me, if you ride in cold weather you'll be glad you spent the cash!

PS: I believe Gerbings makes the HD stuff so I say go with which ever you can get a better deal on.
I agree with HuskerBob. I'm about to bite the bullet on the heated jacket liner and probably gloves too. I do have very thick Harley winter gloves that I use sometimes. They seem to do fine except they are pretty bulky.

And yes, the H-D version of the heated jacket liner is made by Gerbing. The local dealers seem to carry them for $260-$280, but I got an email from a dealer in St. Charles, Missouri (near/in St. Louis I think) that has them on sale for 20% off. For the Dual Source heated jacket liner it says MSRP of $260 but on sale for $208 through Nov 30th. $208 is still a lot of money for a jacket liner but I've talked myself into getting one. What I wonder is if local Harley Dealers will match sale prices like that. But the St. Charles dealer has a website that you can order one from.

Heated gloves for sure. I have heated grips and hands still get cold, especially the thumbs.

BTW, I have tried dozens and once the temp goes below 40, the fingers hurt after about 10 miles. I have a 24 mile commute.
Same here, I have a 45 mile commute and I just bought a pair of snowmobile gloves and they were no better just a little longer till the pain.

What I use down into the 20's. 40 Minute commute each way. Bulky but stay pretty warm.
