Gerbing Heated Motorcycle Gloves

Who says riding your motorcycle has to be limited to warm weather? You can have a lot of fun riding your motorcycle in the rain at a mere 40 degrees. And all you need it some Gerbing heated motorcycle gloves and heated clothing

If you've ever taken a ride on a chilly rainy day you know it doesn't take long before you've lost most of your body heat and you're wet and freezing and just plain miserable. But with heated clothing it doesn't have to be like that.

Back in 1975 Gerbing was busy creating aircraft parts for the military. Many of their workers rode motorcycles to work in the cold so Gerbing decided he would design gear that would keep them warm by running a flexible heating wire through the clothes. And so Gerbing heated clothes came to be.

Today they have a full line of jackets, pants, vests, and gloves. And recently they've even added socks to the list. These heated garments are used by motorcycle riders, snowmobilers, hunters, and trades people working out in the cold.

If you love to ride all year round you aren't alone! Many die hard riders love to use their motorcycles all year round and with the ever increasing price of fuel it makes good sense.

Trouble is riding while you are cold increases your risk of an accident. Don't believe me just have a look at the stats. Your extremities get cold, your reflexes decrease, and so does your alertness. But just some heated clothing and you'll be snug as a bug and riding safer during those colder months. And keeping your hands warm is the perfect place to start. Definitely worth the investment!

So are you wondering where to get Gerbing heated motorcycle gloves? You can purchase direct by phone, mail, or online or you can purchase from one of the many sites that offers such products.

Of course there are other great sites where you can find heated gear and there are other manufacturers as well. Be sure to check all of them out.

And they are very easy to hook up and start using. Whether you are buying jackets, gloves, socks, or pants you will only need one battery that's no more than 150 watts. Attach a fuse connector wire to two points on the battery then make your connection to the clothing. Just follow the instructions provided. It takes about five minutes to get all hooked up and operating. That's not too bad at all.

Although you can hook directly from the battery to the clothing this method is very difficult to regulate the temperature so adding a thermostat is a great option. It allows you to regulate the temperature and keep you comfortable whether you are sitting at a light or whipping down the road.

If you generally pull your bike off the road when the weather turns colder, with the fuel prices continuing to climb perhaps this is the year to think about keeping it on the road. Heck start with a pair of heated motorcycle gloves and see where that leads. Soon you will be heated from head to toe and loving your longer cruising time.
