Heated liner!!!!

So last night i purchased the Gerbings heated vest liner for $139.00 and just came back from a test-run in 26 degrees weather and 40 mph wind gusts. Let me tell you folks who haven't tried it, it is nothing short of fantastic!:supsmiley Never once did i feel cold and in fact trollling around town i had to turn it off for a bit a i was too hot!

For such a minimal investment it now allows me to rude year ride here in the northeast.

must buy!!!!

2nd sv1000s-SOLD w/32k !! sold the 1sv w/ 35K!

It's not nice to be rude year round.

If you are going to be a year round ruder, er, rider it is a must. I do not have one....yet but everyone who does swears on them.....kinda like an Aerostich.:supsmiley

An Aerostich and a simple electric vest is all I have ever needed. When I first got the vest I wondered how I had survived riding in winter the previous 13 years.

Everyday it's getting harder and harder to tell blue skies from pain or a green field from a cold steel rail.

Gerbings

I've had mine for ten years, can you say "Lifetime Warranty"!!! I had a connector melt on me this year, due to a short in the Areostich coiled connector cord (overuse), and Gerbings said send it in, absolutely no questions asked. Fixed it and sent me new connectors as well!!!

If only all companies operated like this(are you reading this Suzuki?)

Couldn't be happier, or warmer.......:supsmiley

Made with pride in WA State too When I go heated it will be a Gerbings no doubt! Used to be Widder was the leader in electric but I think Gerbings is now the top of the class.

I find a heated vest feels like the sun is hitting the outside of a black jacket. With my BMW cylinders warming my feet, heated grips, and a heated vest - I've rode in some pretty cold weather (ice building up on fenders). This picture was taken on a CT scanner - zipped my heated vest around two pillows, did 700 thin axial slices, and then displayed it in 3D on a cardiac workstation. Just because...

I love my vest and consider it one of the best investments I've made with regards to my motorcycling passion.

Consider this, we're all into this sport because we enjoy the freedom of riding. For my investment of $100Cdn, that's almost $25US to our brethen across the border , I'm able to extend the period of enjoyment by approx. 1.5 months on either side of the "typical" riding season. Count them, that's 3 additional months!!

I COMPLETELY agree with you Yun about the aspect of being able to ride longer in colder weather. I have a Gerbing jacket liner and glove liners and think that next to the Corbin seat, they are the best investments I've made regarding motorcycle-related purchases.

Nothing else heated? Well, they do say that your "core" is the most important...that you heat that area and it will warm your whole body. I think I will be buying sooner than later!

Thanks to my Gerbings full Jacket Liner and Heated Gloves, today is the only day that I haven't been able to ride here in Maryland this winter. Today were getttin a little bit of snow and freezing rain. It's a shame that Gerbing can't fix the weather, too..........

Yeah, absolutely!
I am sure that the other heated goodies are good too, but the stuff about heating the core and the rest of the body staying warm is true. The vest is the the biggest bang for the buck. You should buy the basic vest first, then decide if you need more.

Vest vs jacket

Heated core means heated blood flowing throughout your body, thats also why heated grips can make feel warmer.
Jacket liner has heated sleeves and neck!!!!! Vest's do not, Why be cold?
