i live in minnesota. we used to say that the guys wearing this stuff were wimps. my brother let me try his out and now i will never be without my Gerbing heated liner. its funny how many people have never heard about them. how many of you ride with heat? we rode up to duluth minn and it was 90 deg F when we left home. got to the north shore and the temp dropped to 62 deg F. pulled out the liner and it was pure heaven. got mine on Ebay and paid half price for it. how many of you bike riders use heated jacket liners?

My Gerbing came with the lead to the battery. or group runs the lead so it comes up between the seat and tank. looks like a little weiner. i point out my bikes little weiner to the chicks all the time. lol. the lead bolts directly to the battery. you will need to buy an on/off switch or the adjustable reostat unit but it is 70 bucks the switch is 12 - 15 bucks. the collar, arms, front and back are all heated. i have the on/off switch so it runs wide open. i would say 110 deg F. i like the heated collar. its like a heating pad on your neck, yeah same heat as a heating pad on high. not sure if lighter plug is big enough. the liner i have is 77 wats or 6 - 7 amps. coldest i rode this year was 35 - 45 and it was cold even with the liner. legs get cold even though core is warm. need headed chaps, lol. do you have wind defectors on yours? i get wind blast coming up from my shin's and blasts up under my chin, ears face. i think if that went away then cold would be no problem. do your lowers stop the rush of air?

yes, bike put away here as well. were getting 4 - 7 inches of snow tonite. heated liner would feel good when i plow with the atv tomorrow. i'll have to get the lead from the battery so i can get the quad up to speed with my Strat.
ATV is Yamaha Big Bear 400 4x4, i like my yamaha's. i got a 1972 Yamaha RD350 also. "The Giant Killer". no heat on that one.
