Every fall as the weather starts to cool off here in the Midwest the leaves start to change my favorite spots to go and break the speed limits start to take on a whole new look. Which makes me want to go and ride them even more. But along with the colorful changing of the season comes a change in temperature that isn’t as suitable for riding as the scenery. Especially as we get deeper into the fall and winter, the stinging cold starts to seep in through your fingers and toes and finally reaches up in your chest until you feel like you’re standing in an icebox with an air conditioner blowing on you. And the “normal” fix is to pile on layers of clothing until you feel like the abominable snowman and that definitely doesn’t make you feel like riding much.
Well fear not fellow cold weather ride junkies; Tour Master has a brilliant solution to the problem. Their line of heated clothing is just what you need to extend the riding season well into the late year cold weather. Motorcycle jackets, vest, pants and gloves allow you to tailor the heated clothing to what’s comfortable in your riding style. It’s designed to operate with a standard 12-volt electrical system that is heated by a series of durable carbon fiber heating elements which generates a safe electronically controlled infrared heat that’s even safe to use in the rain and are flexible so it doesn’t interfere with riding styles. They include thigh mount control units and are available in sizes up to 4X.
So now you don’t have excuse; grab some of this heated gear, rip the cover off the bike and get back on the road.
