I was blessed this Christmas with some very useful gear for my SWing

Powerlet heated gear

1) Proform Heated Jacket Liner
2) Dual Temperature Controller with both a battery lead
3) Dual Temperature Controller Pouch.
4) Powerlet plug (PPC-005)

I will have to exchange the Profrom Heated Jacket Liner for a larger size ... they run VERY small for their size. Since I am going to exchange for a larger size I did not connect and test ... plus it was 78 degrees today.
I will provide a writeup after the exchange and proper COLD day testing pale

Purchased from http://www.premiercycleaccessories.com/Powerlet_Heated_Clothing_Group_Buy_Package_B_p/10620.htm
Additional information: http://www.powerletproducts.com/shop-by-product/heated-clothing/HEATCLTHNG

I also received a Fenix L2D-Q5 LED ( http://www.fenixlight.com/viewproduct.asp?id=44 ) flashlight ... VERY BRIGHT. My son was very knowledgeable about the flashlight, evidently it is a rated #2 for all flashlights in the 3-5 watt flashlights. It also has 6 light settings, including a strobe light that I tested tonight while walking our dog. The cars immediately noticed the strobe, it looks like a white police light flashing ... which will be very handy if I ever need to get anyone's attention at night on the SWing.

Sounds like you had a good Christmas. I got a Givi windshield and installed it today. I removed my Clearview and went on 2 short rides and so far it is nice. I like the way the Givi is much stronger and doesn't flex anywhere near as much as the Clearview. It also keeps more wind off my head too.

Ride safe,

JeffR

I have the Clearview with vent and have not seen the flex that some people have described. I wonder if your Clearview was a manufacturing defect as someone else has found when they contacted Clearview.

It would be interesting if you contacted Clearview also and find the same.

I probably should contact them since it really flexes at high speed. If I'm going 90-100mph indicated sometimes it is almost below my chin and only inches from my face. The Givi is much further from my face and stays upright. I did feel a very small amount of backpressure on my helmet/back but not much at all. I have been going fast with a strong headwind and have had the feeling that it may just snap off sometimes. So I back off.

Ride safe,

JeffR
