Heat

I just bought a Gerbing heated jacket liner and gloves with independent rheostat control

The jacket has plugs at the end of the sleeves so the gloves plug into them. And the jacket has a third outlet for heated pants if so desired.

Installation on the bike was easy. Just hook up the supplied connectors to the battery and install the correct fuse.

Fit was excellent for both and they produce a lot of heat. First day out, I had to stop and turn down the controls because there was too much.

Enough heat so that even today, it is below freezing here, I don't have my windshield on for around town driving.

To get going, I plug the gloves into the jacket, start the bike, and by the time I get the gloves on and put the bike into gear there is heat in both the gloves and the jacket.

The jacket liner has a heated high neck collar which is great.

Fit and finish on all of it is excellent.

The only thing I would change is the inside pockets of the jacket which should have zippers.

Not for the feint of wallet, but worth every penny.
