Search me.
The snowmobile mitts with wool gloves (CDN TIRE- 25 bucks)- are the best that I could find- so far.)
The insulated leather glove, (that I got onsale from GPBIKES at the bikeshow, seem okay for now)
Bike is running fine for now. I now have over 2000 klicks on it.
Only thing I have had to do to it- was adjust and lube the chain. One other thing: When parked for 2-3 weeks. the tires lose pressur. (This is a common thing with cast rimes and tubeless). Check your tire pressures! I kid you not!

Tested them out yesterday with regular motorcycle gloves, non-vented. They're awesome. I've ridden with various insulated gloves before, never enough warmth to last for any extended period and always with a reduction in articulation/dexterity. I'm sold on heated grips!

Reviving this thread folks, any of fellow Duke riders in Toronto want to meet up for a ride/cruise in the coming weeks before the season draws to a close ? (Other bikes are welcome too of course!)

Heated grips are a must, even in Victoria where I ride year round. I've put them on my other bike as well as on a Vespa GT 200 and just ordered a pair of Oxford heated grips for the Duke.

Hah, funnily enough I just ran into another Duke this morning on my ride home, going up university to St. Clair! He continued northbound when I turned off though! Had me wondering if he was a forum member! Anyways, is there a time that works for the two of you, @stealthmr, @retrochick ?

Heated grips are probably a good idea- do you personally recommend them, and where did you get them?

Here in T.O.- there is that bike hangout thing, ('Coffee Bar Cowboys')- happening at the Timmies over on Leslie/Lakeshore TOMORROW NITE. As a door prize for Dukesters- I gotta brand new/neverworn boonybasher pants, (Ballistic nylon with pockets for body armor/ waist size 32 inches/ retails for over 100 clams)- to the first Duke rider who claims them! (They were given to me as a gift- I gotta find a new home for them).
See Ya there?
