Your Winter Riding Gear - January 10, 2007, 09:40 AM

OK I want to know what kind of gear you use while riding in the winter months? I use Under Armour coldgear Headsoc,socks,shirt and pant. Joe rocket Ballistic with liner jacket, First Gear pants with liner, Gaerne Explorer boots and just got my Held Ice Breaker gloves. I am doing this so if someone needs winter riding gear they can do a search and check this thread out for info! Also say what temps you ride at. I will ride till it hits 10 degs then I call it quits for saftey reasons.

Sidi's boots with just normal socks. Never had my feet feel uncomfortably cold.

Firstgear jacket without the liner (with cheap zip-up fleece jacket underneath). I'm thinking about buying the Firstgear Kilimanjaro jacket because it is a 3/4 length instead of the regular jacket that I'm wearing now.

Joe Rocket Insulated gloves. Still comfortable down to 35, after that you might notice your fingers getting a bit numb.

That's it, except that I finally picked up a top-end helmet for comfort reasons (Shoei). My HJC had vents in the back that did not close (allowing air to rush over your eyes). The Shoei also has a chin curtain that keeps the air out of the helmet. I highly recommend this helmet for cold weather.

I'm not sure if I'll go much lower than 15~20 degrees. But we shouldn't see too much of that in this area.

4. Battery powered gloves or heated grips(on the KTM)

ski pants (with elastic ankles)
sweater
Fieldsheer Jacket with liner
2 pairs of socks (though probably overkill, but good for longer rides)
Sidi boots.
2 pairs of gloves (thin "undergloves" and heavy, fluffy, motorcycle gloves)
scarf, balaclava (head + neck cover) if I can find it, usually I can't.

Plus some of those chemical heat packs if I can find them. No electricity (yet).

Firstgear Kilamanjaro 2 piece suit w/ fleece liner in the jacket. polypropolene neck sock that i can pull up like a ninja.
Last time i rode it was ~30 and it was pretty slippery on summer tires even riding smoothly. Im probably done for the season.

Maybe next year i'll have a BMW or something fun to ride year round

just an FYI, im selling the suit i have if anyones interested. Its too tall for me.


'04 CBR1000RR and lots of Volvos (and now a new Tundra for hauling them around when they all break)

I'm interested in the Kilimanjaro jacket. Is it the version 2, 3, or 4? Size? Price?

Point of interest!!

I bought these just before it started getting cold ............

http://www.newenough.com/tour_master...loves_page.htm

So far they have been bad ass! Got caught in the rain once or twice and they are full water proof! Lowest temp I've tested in so far is 28 - 30 and they have been great. Only part that kinda sucked was breaking them in because they are pretty stiff and limit your control for a little bit. Easy way around that is to just wear them around the house for a few days and work them or as Devious suggested .. go rack leaves or shovel snow or something!!!

Fieldsheer jacket/weather-proof gloves (gortex), head sock, regular sidi boots, jeans or leathers with long-johns.

The DRZ does a good job of shielding my legs so they really don't get cold.

As other said though...the headsock is golden!

Temps? As long as I have time to ride I'll get out...and what I take out R6 vs DRZ

I did get caught in the snow once on my R6 with dunlop 208's...that was "interesting" but I kept the bike from falling (and it wanted to fall trust me )

After all the shit you give people here you posted yet another winter gear thread.



I would like to know what you think of the gloves. I am looking for something between my Racer Gore-Tex and Olympia cold weather. Gerbings heated glove are good but bulky and surprisingly water resistant.

Hey type in "Winter Gear" in the search and see what happens!! Zero came up even though one did get started on Oct 2006. I wanted a thread to come up and give people advice so stuff it! BTW the gloves are 1st rate for protection for winter gloves. I rode with them today in 25 to 30 deg temp and they seam to work. I really need to test them in rain.
