lol.... just don't mess up, because you only run the risk of fire and/or electrocution.

$50 in parts, might as well just buy heated gear.

I agree. For $50 I will spend 2-3 times as much and not spend the time or run the risk of buring my nuts or setting myself a blaze.

"This is for those motorcycle riders, who like me, don't know when to quit and can't afford store bought heated clothing." Damn, that sounds like me! Well, the broke part at least.

I just installed the wiring for my Tourmaster Synergy heated gloves. I think the heated gloves are more efficient and does a better job in keeping your hands warm than the grips. Had heated grips on my old bike. The only advantage of the grips is you don't have to go though a gotdang ceremony like you would when you have to plug the gloves in and route the wiring underneath your jacket.

LOL! I'm familiar with that ceremony. When it was cold enough to need a liner in my winter jacket I carefully ran the jacket wires under the lining, using the liner's hitch points to secure the wires. Worked like a charm, but I still have plug into the bike and into each glove to ride.

I need to re-wire my jacket for THIS winter.

depending on how broke you are...cut the toe off an old sock...then cut a small hole for your thumb...insert hand...put glove on...mmmmMMMM toasty.

you can also get those heat bag things that you put on the top of your hand inside ur glove (find'em in walmart or CVS etc etc) - they get pretty warm so don't put them directly on ur skin. The heat will permeate down to your fingertips.

I got a heated vest, has 3 settings LO MID HI that also has the raised heated neck portion. FUCKIN thing is awesome!!!! I've worn it to and from NJ in as cold as 9 degrees. Still felt nice and toasty (till i got pulled over and had to shut the bike off ). I can sell it for $50

then the cops will chase you and run u off the road and put a "failure to maintain control" ticket on your burning body - then send out a bench warrant cuz u failed to appear cuz the ticket burned up. it's a vicious cycle.....

Don't forget, they'll also cite you for "Failure to signal" before you run/burn yourself off the road
