Great info on the liners. I have a heated jacket liner that is great, but have been looking for heated gloves or glove liners.

Sled lids are all DOT. A special plug is required for the elect.visors.

Winter visors are good but, much better with a breath deflector.

08 FLHTC. Breathing well and getting lots to drink.

They are supposed to last two hours on the highest setting, 5 hours on the lowest (yeah, I did the highest this morning). I'll find out I suppose if the batteries last on the trip home. They are rechargeable Lithium Ion batteries.

Oh, the temp when I left the house this morning was 10F. I kept my speed around 65~70, which, depending on which wind chill reference you are using (old way or new way) would make the "feels like" index at -37 for the old way and -20 for the new way.

MOnzie,

Do these glove liners fit well under your regular gloves? I have winter riding gloves but my hands are already large. My HD glove are 3x. I'd hate to spend the $ only for them not to fit...

They do fit very well. The material is pretty thin. After the first day of riding with them and my hands were still a bit cold - but not uncomfortably so. I decided to see if I could wear my other glove liners in addition to the heated glove liners under my gloves.

What I use for my regular glove liners is a pair of fleece Isotoner SmartTouch gloves.

Everything still fits under my regular winter gloves without feeling too bulky, and the extra glove liner makes a HUGE difference, my hands are toasty warm all the way in now.

I wear a bandanna, which I am finding makes a piss-poor breath deflector. However, I did try something this morning that made quite a bit of difference (good for the meantime while I find a better solution). I taped a Ziploc bag to the bandanna. The Bandanna was still there to help keep my face warm, and the plastic inside it provided a much better deflector for my breath.

Snowmobile helmets (usually) have a breath deflector that velcroes (now 'velcroes' is a verb! ) in place over your nose with a piece of aluminum inside to conform to the bridge of your nose. This in conjunction with the double lens shield work great!

Here's a pic (I hope . . . ) of a shield I just got on warranty from an HJC Street Helmet with the same design approach for cold weather. You can see the two panes lead to a vent on each side . . .

With this helmet you get a chin curtain that snaps and velcroes into place to keep the cold from getting in at your neck . . . still working on the best set up for me on that one!

http://store.ski-doo.com/product/570...tric_SE_Helmet try this link Canadian web site but you probably can get them in the US. This is the helmet I run when sledding at -25C . Breath deflector,heated shield, and built in sun visor, it slides down like fighter pilot helmet.The breath deflector on this helmet snaps in. DOT approved.
