I haven't but I have heard about it. If you do end up embarking on this project, let me know how it goes!Moss said:They make them for ATV's, but the mount up to a Bike would be simple, I'm thinking of getting a set, I think they are 25$ and mounting it up for the Cold weather Riding.
Has anyone ever done it?
I'd be afraid i'd get caught in the rain, or Wet snow and Electricute Myself...LOLSportyChick said:What about the heated vest for riders, has anyone tried it?
Shit Yah I know I meant the JR Ballistic Jackets..Not the little Mesh thingscambridgezx6r said:
Be aware that using a mesh jacket and fleece is a really BAD idea.
Why? Because the mesh lets air flow through. Immensely so, which is why they're so comfortable in the summer. Cold (10 celcius or below) air at highway speeds+ flowing right through one's jacket is the LAST thing one needs.
You want a wind proof (IE solid leather) jacket. Fleece underneath (yeah, it'll be tight). Scarf or fleece jacket with muffler (zips all the way up, covering neck). Any bare skin/air flow will be a biatch.
I don't plan on getting a heated vest..Only heated grips, and I don't know what they draw, but I really doubt its much at all, and I won't be worried about it.Guido said:I don't know what the current draw is, but I know motorcycle charging systems are designed to provide "just enough" of what a stock bike needs. I wouldn't be surprised if a vest and grips put it over the limit.
