I broke the Heritage out of it's winter cage today, hooked up my new heated gear and fired it up .. Seems to me like a great fucken purchase! (IMG:http://www.harleyshoptalk.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/banana.gif)

Question, Does anyone use the Dual Control unit? If so do you know why the little green and red lights blink for a while before going solid? I'm guessing because it needs to reach the temp setting, but just not sure....

Ok, I just called my Haaaahley dealership and here's the fucken answer before the rest of you Smaaahhht asses chime in... (IMG:http://www.harleyshoptalk.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/finger2.gif)

It's not documented in the installation infuckingstructions, or the heated gear manual... but all the dual control lights blink until they reach either charge from the battery or temp... no one is fucken sure which... once they go solid either the charge or fucken temp has reached the appropriate level.

Bottom like - it's O'Fucken-K and it's working right!!! (IMG:http://www.harleyshoptalk.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/banana.gif)

I'm thinking about getting the Gerbing gloves, and maybe a vest liner. I know it's going to be summer, but I need to choose a birthday present.

Can you use these without a temperature control? The fucking dual temp-controller retails for $99. Would you bake without the control?

Also, where is a good place to buy this stuff? It would probably make sense to try the stuff on rather than buying on-line? Are the Harley prices decent?

"Can you use these without a temperature control? The fucking dual temp-controller retails for $99. Would you bake without the control?"
U need the controler.Without it you'll be way too hot,maybe burnt if you don't turn the switch on and off.Get the dual control and have the liner wired seperate for the gloves so as you can control them independantly.I haven't had mine turned much passed half even in 25*-30*
The jacket liner(not the vest) is the hot tip,has heat in the arms and neck collar and had plugs down by the cuffs for the gloves.The g3 gloves are their lighter ones but are well insulated.Don't need to plug them in above around 45*.
I got mine direct from gerbing,lifetime warr. on the electrics.Gerbing makes hd but hd doesn't give you that warr.I think hd charges about the same.The gerbing web page will ask you for your sizes when you order.Russ

Thanks, Madmech. The gloves, jacket liner, and controller add up to big bucks, but it's probably worth it.

I bought mine at my local dealer because I got 20% off, and had some gift certificates to use up... and like you said, it's nice to try them on and I'm glad I did. Also, like Mad said... get the Jacket, not the vest. Way better value for the money. The dual controller is worth the money, other wise all you have is on HOT, and off COLD.

So, if you want to save a few bucks, Go to HD try the gear on for size, then order online from Gerbing.

Thanks, Fbomaaahhh. I was tempted to buy the vest, but the more I think about it, the jacket makes sense. My arms will get hit with more wind than my torso. The controller also makes more sense than on/off.

There is a big Honda dealer near here that is listed as a Gerbing dealer. I don't know how much inventory they carry, but I think I'll stop there and check it out.

As i recall it came to around $500.The worth is subjective.I have a 50 mile round trip to work.This week the temps in the morning have been right at 30*,but in the pm pushing 80.On my ride to work I'm warm and comfortable.Then I have a great ride home with the gear stashed in the bags.Without the gear I'd be taking the truck at 15 miles to the gallon(gas here is around 3.50)So it's paying for itself.
It all depends on how much cold weather riding you do and how warm you want to be.Russ (IMG:http://www.harleyshoptalk.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/bike.gif)

On a Softail the max heating gear is two pieces. On a Geezer glide it's the sky's the limit.

I have the jacket and the G3 gloves hooked into a single controller, although the jacket is wired for seperate. The single controller works fine for both jacket and gloves.

All the controller is a Rheostat. It's not a thermostat. Think of a variable resistor. The more clockwise you turn the dial the more current flows through the wireing and the toastier it gets. The blinking light on the single controller tells you how warm you have it set. The faster it blinks the warmer it is. The slower it blinks means not as warm.

I'm surprised no one has called homeland security on my ayrab looking ass every time I cross the George Washington Bridge wired like I'm going to blow the fucking thing up. Wish I could do something about all the wires sticking out of the jacket. Tired of people giving me the hairy fuckin' eyeball.

Ride Safe
