Howdy Folks,

Tested my new HD Heated gloves this morning. Put 50 miles on the bike.

Temp: 36* (weather.com showed felt like 36*)

I put about ~35 miles on country roads at 40-55 mph and ~15 miles on the interstate at 70 mph.

Hands felt great. Never felt cold (my feet did). All the heat comes from this side of the gloves:



No heat provided from this side:



Back of my hands got pretty hot at the lower speeds and felt perfect on the interstate. I had to reach behind me and turn off the gloves a couple of times because my knuckles started to burn. HD sells a thermostat for the gloves (I think it's about $100). I was fine with just turning the gloves off if they were too hot.

Palms and fingers never got cold. I guess enough heat came from the back of my hands to the palms. All in all, I like them. :thumb

Hoss those look like great gloves.

As for the feet, slipping heat packs into your boots should help keep the toes toasty.

Thermostat is ~$65. I might do it. I have one knuckle that got so hot the skin is coming off it today :eek: I do have sissy hands though, can't even do an oil change without at least one knuckle bleeding.

I'm going to get some of the heat packs for my feet - I think that would make me comfortable for long rides in the cold. Thanks for the suggestion.
