In a message dated 11/11/2003 8:35:13 AM Eastern Standard Time,
So the new plan is to use the regular insulated liner that came with
the jacket, with me wearing a long sleeve thermal undershirt and then
the vest. I thought it would be nice to leave the electrics with the
jacket, but have given up on that plan. Will post how this all works
Since I have both the heavy fleece liner as well as the lighter electric
version (bought the first one shortly after they came out w/electric liner, wore
it every day for what seems like years, and finally bought a new one w/standard
liner), I am able to vary my dress for almost any expected temps. If I know
it's going to be nasty, it's the fleece with Widder vest. If a notch less cold,
the fleece goes on by itself. If not as cold but changing conditions, the
electric is the call of the day since it does add "some" heat.
Like Marc, I find the ride more pleasant if I don't have to deal with
electrics. But I'd much rather deal with electrics than not ride.
But then, I can always jump on the airhead RS and enjoy that wonderful
fairing that keeps your feet warm through almost anything.
