    Default Do you have heated gloves or grips?

    It seems to be a common debate this time of the year. Which do you have and why or did you make the right decision?

    I have HD heated grips because they were plug n play, $160 cheap, and don't require plugging in or batteries.

    I put Heat Demon bar heaters on when I changed bars and grips. I liked the way they replaced the left control neatly. They work great. The Buell has no such luxury, so I got some heated gloves. They work well, but wiring up kinda sucks.

    I don't have either at the moment but would like something. With the apes the only thing that does get cold are my hands and after about an hour even with my big gloves on my hands have a hard time hanging on but having arthritic pain at 24 does help either haha.

    So you prefer the heated grips then?

    Heated grips on my '06"R", but they gave up after only 4 years and 60,000 miles. Will get some more as I used them a lot, and not just through the winter. I found myself coming home late at night one summer, and was under dressed as the temp had dropped 30 degrees. As I neared Lake St. Clair I was quite chilled, switched on the grips and my whole body seemed to warm up. Went from miserable to tolerable in minutes. May try the "Heat Demons" like Greg's as they are about half the cost of the H.D.

    I'm not a sissy. Nor do I have my vagine in my hands.

    At stops I heat my hands up baseball style - get some shrinkage and relief at the same time.
