Hello Mike

Welcome to the forum. It would be nice to think that you folks in the GWN have a few more riding days left this year.

Hi Mike and welcome to the best SWing site on the Net.

I have an 08 SWing on which I just finished my third season. Can't wait for warm weather to come back to MN in 8 or 9 months for a couple of weeks... LOL

Hi Mike. Welcome to the forum.
Are you anywhere near Ottawa?

Looks like the end of the riding season for us.
A week ago saturday we had 16C. Two days later a foot of snow.

That's nonsense, I've read similar posts on UK forums, using that NRA slogan " until they prise it from my dead cold fingers" and similar rubbish. The simple truth is you have no idea what the future holds for you, and once you're into you're 60's you'll have a different perspective on your own mortality

You could have a stroke, (I did!), a heart attack, some some sort of physical disability or debilitating illness, dementia, have to go into a care home, etc, get into financial trouble, or simply lose interest and hang up your helmet, or not since you're in Florida.

On a lighter note, IMHO from the amount of topics and posts you've started since you joined, your interest seems to be more into fettling and tinkering than riding. Smile

Hey now I've got over 500 miles on my bike already:)   Unless I am hauling something that won't fit on the scoot it's my primary mode of transportation (my poor Jeep is being ignored.) I'm actually able to ride a lot more now that I can store more than a napkin in my bike but yeah I do like to modify things.

Good lad, As it's winter here, I've just completely contradicted my own long term views on heated gear and bought some. (a birthday and Christmas treat for myself is my excuse)

I'm awaiting delivery of a Keis heated jacket, complete with a remote heating controller. So instead of fiddling with the one fitted to the jacket when I want to switch it on or off and adjust the heat setting. I'm hoping I can fit the remote onto the wide handlebar spacer inside my left Barkbuster hand guard and do it from there.

Cool! The is the first bike I've ever owned with a windshield so I'm really enjoying riding in cool weather that would normally make me pull out my leathers

Hi Mike,

Welcome from me too, in the land of the Bluenose.
My Silverwing is a 2005 as well. Like Dale, this past season completes my 3rd season with it. As far as that goes , my 3rd season on any motorized 2 wheel machine. So - I am still learning. And I agree with Dale - this is a great place to learn all sorts of things about the Silverwing.

Enjoy the Ontario winter. (I have a brother in Ottawa...)

Mike

Hi Meldrew I've had a Keis heated jacket for some years now. I wear it most of the time, without the heat cable connected, but, time to connect up again now. I find if you connect the main cable direct to the battery and run it down the left side, under the seat, it couples up best. When not connected up the cable sits near the fuses. One word, do not get the heated inner gloves or the foot warmers in my opinion, not worth it, they sit in the box unused. Heating controller on mine has low, medium and high. Medium suits me.Smile

Hello mate, I thought it was about time I tried a heated jacket mainly to supplement my unlined Klim Overland jacket. I usually just wear a Sympatex top under it, or maybe a micro fleece top, but a recent very cold ride over the Pennines on the A66 got me thinking seriously about heated kit.

An old mate from my GS days has a Keis heated jacket and highly rates it, and of course you've mentioned your Keis heated kit a few times on here. I've ordered a large, as the medium jackets sleeves were a bit short for me. I don't think I need any other heated clothing, I fitted Barkbuster Blizzard hand guards recently and already have Honda heated grips.
