Just before the "Ride to the Dragon" I picked up a HD heated jacket on Ebay. It's made by Gerbing; the heated clothing people.

I had planned on wearing it to the ride but the weather Gods were with us and didn't need it.

Fastforward to October in NYC. It's been a little bit on the nippy side in this here piece and I finally got around to trying this thing out:

Quick Review: It has heating pads on the back, neck, chest, and arms. Connectors protrude out of the wrist and waist areas for connection to heated gloves, pants, or socks. The folks at HD informed me that my charging system could only handle two articles of clothing. Hence, Jacket and gloves. You can use an on/off switch to regulate the heat but they sell a device that resembles a thermostat but is actually a Rheostat. I use the Rheostat. The jacket has a cable that plugs right into a fused harness that's connected to the battery.

Yesterday the temps in Fun City dipped to the lower 40's with wind chills in the 30's. On my way to work I was sweating! (IMG:http://www.harleyshoptalk.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) I pulled over and adjusted the controller so that the dial sat right in the middle. Now thats what I'm talking about! I just extednded my riding season until the first snow fall. I was toasty and thanked god I didn't wear a full face. I would have fallen asleep.

The gloves and the jacket work as advertised. I didn't realize how well they workded until I dismounted, remove the gloves, and openned the jacket and touch the handlebars. Fucking thing was ice cold but I would never have known it with the gear on.

There will be less "Fuck you Screwballs" coming from this corner. That is until the first snowfall.... (IMG:http://www.harleyshoptalk.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Ride safe

I've been looking to get the liner as I already have their gloves. Liner ain't cheap at 2 bills. Thermostat has got to be the way to go because my gloves can get real hot.

Heated Jacket.... (IMG:http://www.harleyshoptalk.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/hysterical.gif)

Shit, I need one of those that produces Air Conditioning... (IMG:http://www.harleyshoptalk.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/hysterical.gif)














Just fucking w/you Ordy. I'll bet all that heated gear is a must up there in the Fucking Cold. I think the Pants would be great, but how could you add more juice? There has to be a way to do that, and I'd say they are better than Chaps. (IMG:http://www.harleyshoptalk.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Bobby: What's happening bro'. Hope all are well by you.

I picked up the jacket on ebay. Harley stopped making the jacket but sells a heated vest and jacket liner. I see them all the time on ebay but under the search heading Gerbing.

Gerbing sells the same exact jacket but without the orange and the advertisment for Harley Davidson Motorcycles.

The material of the jacket is similiar to what you'd get on a Carhartt jacket. It's not water proof although they suggest wearing a rain jacket under the heated one.

I giggle my Rican ass off at the cold! Ha, ha, ha, ha, take that Screwball!

Bought my wife the jacket liner a couple of years ago, and the electric gloves last year. Best money I ever spent. She rides all winter now without bitching. Granted it ain't as cold here as there, but anything below 80 and Vesta starts bitching about the cold. Money well spent! Told her if she wanted the electric pants liners she needed a Gold Wing instead of a Harley. She said she would rather have a cold ass than ride a Honda.

You all are some sick fuckers...................

I have the whole enchalada Jacket liner worn under my real biker leather jacket, gloves, pants and socks. I dont recomend the socks they fucken hurt to walk in. Plus a jacket liner for the passenger. I have never had charging issues.blown a fuse or two............heads up..........turn the mother fucker off at the gas station! I had my glove wire hit the handle bars and arc ( with pump in the same hand) and blow the fuse. Got a little weld mark on the bars too.

In Northern California it can be low 40's when I leave my house and 88 on the way home. I learned to just pack all my gear then no worries. Gerbing will water proof your gear for you or sell you the product they use.

I also melted my inside right leg on my exhaust and they fixed them and added more heat resistent material all the way up to the spot so it wont happen again for like 25 bucks....great company just call them and they will take care of you.

hey Sick: how you been bro'?

I don't know if the evo and the softail twin cams run the same amps. Joes Debbie has a Deuce also so she's running same amps as me. Harley sells this stuff and the sales woman I spoke to was very knowledgable about it. She claimed to wear this stuff also.

Tom, I'll never forget you at that North Carolina Motel shivering for what seemed like hours. You, my friend, are a prime candidate for this stuff.

Sorry I couldn't be of much more help. I'll ask around.

Evo's from 84-91 have a 22 anp stator, 92-99 have a 32 amp stator. Believe I'm going to buy me the liner/gloves for my X-mas present. Can't handle the cold like I used to! Tom

Something to think about.....tech talk

Most Harleys stator output is in amps. Most heated riding gear is rated in watts.

Watts is amps X voltage. a 32 amp alternator produces 384 watts. You are going to use 5 to 10 amps to charge your battery after a long start. 10 X 12 =120 watts, or 264 watts left. Check your manual for the amperage of your lights, and any aux lights you have installed, radios, amps, and subtract that from your total output. If you draw more than your alternator produces, you drain your battery....

Hi Ordy,

Thanks for the info on the Gerbing product! I have been thinking on buying heatedfuckengear for a while now... your endorsement sealed it for me... this shit is ON my Christmas list for sure.

Do you know why there is a limitation of only two heated items connected to your battery? Just curious? What do folks do to add more heated gear besides buying a Gold (IMG:http://www.harleyshoptalk.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/puke4.gif) Wing?

Bomaaahhh: Gots to keep those little piddys warm bro'........

The limitation is for my Deuce and by inferance Softails. It may be differant for the heritage. It has to do with the total amount of watts your electrical system can handle. I find that heating my torso and my little piddys supersedes warming my nuts. I wear thermal underwear for that...... (IMG:http://www.harleyshoptalk.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) If I could though I'd go Ty's route and warm the boys too. They sell socks too and a portable battery in case you want to wear it to the football game.....neat!

Ride Safe
