Let's talk winter weather gear ...
So, I'm new to riding, and have none of the "cold weather" gear I'll need to keep riding through winter here in the Washington DC area. However, I do commute by bicycle all year long, so I know that good gear is crucial to a successful ride.
I'm looking for suggestions. What must I have, on my limited budget for this type of thing, and what can I do without? In particular, I'm wondering about all of this electric clothing I keep hearing about.
On the bicycle, layering seems to work just fine. I imagine at the higher speeds associated with motorcycles windproof becomes more important?
Tell me what works best for you, and what kind of temps/weather conditions you deal with where you live.
Got my M-class in July 2011.
Got my 1999 V Star 650 Classic in August 2011.
Been having lots of fun ever since.
