Being from down South, I rarely get to wear all my fixins, but I have done a few chilly ones (under 32). I have a pair of hard shin and knee guards that are strap on either over the pants or inside. The do really break the wind.

Still need a better pair of gloves. My good knuckle busters are good till about 40. Thinking of using my thinsulate ski glove liners or something. Even getting close to freezing a few times a week here.

Gotta find some heated gloves!
If you don't keep your core warm, heating of the extreminties is a bit futile. Wearing a heated liner under a quality jacket will do wonders for you. I have to turn off my heated gloves when temps get over 25F when wearing the heated liner.

Thanks for the info. I have a decent lined jacket and some gloves that do ok and a fleece thing for my neck but I gotta work on the legs. Good thing the nuggets are tucked up tight or that would be miserable!

Lord I apologize...

been fairly chilly here at ~36* in the mornings. My attire is pretty basic; Thermal long sleeve, plain white t-shirt, leather jacket, gauntlet deer skin gloves, jeans, boots, half helmet with a full face/head mask thing (no idea what its called at the moment) and my sunglasses.

luckily my trip is about 20 minutes long at an average of 50mph. I also like the cold more than the heat.

This morning is a bit warmer than yesterday, low thirties. I've seen 10s this past week. The outfit above has kept me warm throughout.
Ride on, icy! Bravo.

I just bought a heated jacket liner (Gerbing, but Harley branded) a few weeks ago and it's great. When I bought it I saw they also have pants too. I assume it was a pants liner and it seemed like it wouldn't work very well if it touched the exhaust pipes (no extra material there to keep the heat away). Having something on underneat my pants wouldn't be handy because once I got ot work I'd have to get undressed to take those off. I don't wear thermal underwear bottoms to work for that same reason. It would be nice to have some outer pants that could be pulled on that are heated like my jacket liner. So I guess my post doesn't help you much except knowing that I'm in the same boat although now with my Electra Glide, the lowers block some of the wind and cold air but definitely not as much as I'd like.

I just stop shaving my back in the winter. I'm assuming this type of grooming faux pax goes against L.Y.M.C. politesse.

Shh, don't tell the Prez...
