I had a bit of work to do about 50 miles from my home on Saturday and the temperatures looked OK, so I rode the motorcycle. On the way over I could not get my hands to warm up adequately even though I kept turning up my glove control on my heat troller. When I got there I found out that the batteries in my wireless controller were dead so I went to a convenience store and got replacement AAA batteries. I felt pretty stupid because I try to replace all my replaceable batteries every year. I had forgotten about the Warm-n-Safe Heat Troller transmitter! I then worked for a while not paying much attention to the temperature and before I knew it, the temps were down around 25 degrees. I quickly headed home and got there with no real issues, but it was a bit colder than I anticipated.

I learned two lessons. 1) Watch battery levels. 2) Keep an eye on the weather when you are riding in Kansas in January! Translation: Try not to be stupid!

I have the Warm-n-Safe Touring gloves and like them pretty well. I find them to be better than the Gerbings I had before. I also have the Warm-n-Safe Heat Layer shirt that I like a lot. The only thing I don't like about it is without a windproof layer over it, the shirt does not do a lot of good.
