Fully dressed, both bike and me. C14's screen about 3/4 the way up. Winter gauntlets and overpants keep me plenty toasty. Really digging these full-length leather jackets I just got, too. No need for electric unless it gets much below 30F, but I prolly won't ride then anyway.

Love it this time of of the year, when I get to put all my gear to use.

48 degrees when I left. Textile jacket with liner, rain pants over my work pants and the Seirus gloves I picked up at Academy. Not even a hint of a chill crept in.

The quick ride on the R1 from The Woodlands was fantastic!

Stopped by the house and switched to the cruiser. Took the HOV into downtown on the news that there was construction on 45 heading south. What a mistake!!

Caught behind a bus with sand dune on the top of it. Got pelted for about 9 miles. The worst was the small bird that got caught in the bus wind sheer. Nothing like a small bird off the forehead at about 65 miles an hour.

Got to put the new balaclava and jacket I just bought to use. I was actually sweating when I rolled in the parking lot at work.

Bah. Electric problems or bad starter on my truck after work yesterday. Had it towed today.

Layers are your friend!

Gloves are still the weak point... mesh/perfed gloves with glove liners still aren't very warm.

Shin gaurds are still the best cold weather gear I own.

The do. Cortech Scarabs are the only ones that come to mind, though. Not a bad glove, but it didn't work very well for me on the cruiser. Low 40's with the wind wrapping around the windshield and hitting me right on the hands got miserable pretty quick. I've heard they work pretty well on sportbikes since the fairings push some of the wind off your hands.

The Seirus Xtreem all weather gloves I picked up at Academy work really well. $40, but no impact protection. Neoprene outer, so not much abrasion protection, either. High 40's yesterday on my ride in, and I didn't even have to turn on my grip heaters. By comparison, the grip heaters come on in the 50's with my regular non-perf gloves.

If I'm riding for more than 30 minutes at temps in the 40s or below, I have to wear my old leather winter gauntlets and they have no armor.

I'm using silk (tourmaster?) glove liners now. Just noticed they make a polar fleece liner too... may try that out. I bet it would fit under my older stretched out pair... current pair are pretty snug.

Last winter I used regular ol' thick leather gloves when it got REALLY cold... the few days I rode. It's not that i don't have a truck, I just really like the afternoon rides

Although my bike is faired... the bars are so wide that hands are well outside the screen/fairing. Left hand sits at the fairing vent behind the radiator when cruising

If the gloves are too snug then you're crushing any thermal barrier benefit

Just remember that blocking the wind should be your main goal. All the insulation you could possibly pack in a glove will do you no good if the wind can cut right through it. If the fleece liner doesn't have a windproof layer, the silk liners are probably more effective.

I have a pair of non-windproof insulated overalls that don't keep my anywhere nearly as warm as just wearing a pair of rain pants (non-insulated) over my work pants or jeans.

You'd want to stop air from coming in before it got to any glove liners. My old gauntlets came with nylon rain mittens that stop air from coming in
