So, im new to these forums, so to start I would just like to say That I've had my Silverwing for about 2 months now, and it's the best bike I've ever owned, hands down. Coming from chinese bikes that isnt saying much, but still, GO SILVERWING!

And now back to topic. I just ordered a pair of Venture Heat BX-125 heated gloves, and i will be posting some reviews in this thread once i get them. But I was also wondering if anyone has had these or a similar pair and would like to give a little review of em.

by the way here is the link to the gloves that I ordered:

Nice but if it gets cold enough to need these I will definitely take the car. Too old for that... LOL

I have an expensive pair of BMW Kevlar winter gloves and that is as far as I will go Laughing

I recently wired my SW for my Gerbings jacket liner and gloves. I used Gerbings harness, the one that has the lugs for battery attachment, an inline fuse and the socket for the dual controller. I cut and extended the Gerbing harness about 18", routed the cable forward and brought it out through the handlebar cover leaving about 2" dangling. I made a bracket that mounts on the left brake perch which is were the controller clips on when I want to use the electrics. I checked the power requirements for the Gerbings and the available power from the SW and found plenty of reserve (I don't remember the numbers). The Gerbings functioned perfectly on an 80 mile ride last Saturday in 38-40f weather. I'm so glad I kept the Gerbings when I sold my Goldwing.

I'd post a couple but don't currently have any pictures hosted anywhere other than on my PC. BTW I meant left brake perch not clutch perch. Too many years on motorcycles.

PostSubject: good, but bulky   Venture BX-125 Heated gloves I_icon_minitimeThu Nov 08, 2012 2:15 pm

Just got the gloves in today, about an hour ago. I wired them to the battery as instructed, and ran the included wire out of the seat in between my legs. the harness that runs through the jacket to the gloves is quite long, about 6 feet or so. this ends up leaving quite a bit of wire dangling between your legs. not sure if that is going to become a problem, but we shall see.

On another note, the gloves seems quite bulky, but i dont see that being too much of a problem. they take a bit of work to get on, but fit nice and snug and seem to fit my hand quite well. i think that a bit of use should stretch them slightly, making it a bit easier to get on.

Warmth wise, they warm up quite quickly when the bike is running, probably about a minute to reach full temperature. they feel quite comfortable on my hands, and while i took my short test drive i did not feel the cold on my hands at all, in fact i felt quite toasty.

So, to sum it up, wire is a bit long, they feel bulky, and are a bit of a chore to get on, but they warm up quickly. They feel very comfortable, and the bulkiness did not seem to inhibit my ability to control the bike on my test drive.

All in all i would recommend these to anyone driving in cold weather. I will update this post with more information as i use them a bit more.
