Are they really worth the price? I live in So. Missouri, so we get some cold for a few months a year....
This plus 1. Dollar for Dollar, heated gloves are a better investment. I installed Avon heated grips on my Shadow, and my RM came with them from the factory. While I do like the convenience of pushing a button and having the grips heat up, I have found that they are only really useful in the 40-60 degree F temperature range. Any colder and the wind chill negates the warmth from the grip. There are gloves that are supposed to be "heated grip friendly", with little or no insulation on the palm, and double insulation on the back to "trap" the heat, but they don't seem to help all that much. Also, if you are running a bike without a fairing, or with a fairing but have midrise bars, there is a lot more wind on your hands.I prefer heated gloves to heated grips ...
a) your hands stay warm if you take one of the handlebar while riding,
b) most of the cold is from air hitting the outside of your hand (not your palm) and gloves have heating elements on both sides of your hand, and
c) cheaper (and they can easily be transferred to a future or second bike).
Yeah, anything in the 50s and everyone here talks about it being cold. However, come June, July, August, and September we get baked in a wet oven.40's and 50's- you live in lap of luxury Tiger - I ride into the 20's in northern IL. Heated grips and seats do tend to extend out your riding season a bit, so a worth while investment.
