But at 75mph the wind chill is pretty darn cold no matter what the temp is.
    James, I made a bracket from 1/8" aluminum that fits behind the ignition switch housing. I got the outlet from Gerbings and wired to an open fused outlet on a secondary fuse block I mounted to the toolbox door. Works pretty good and I just have to reach down to unplug. My dual controller is fastened to the lower left side of my jacket. The wire from the controller easily reach the power outlet, without being too long. In the pic, the outlet is up to the left. The rocker switch is to the lights in my airfilter cover.
    Here are a few pics cause it did happen:

    Right, well bought a set of gerbing heated gloves & a heated jacket liner today from my local moto shop. Also ordered a dual controller from the Interwebs (shop was sold out). Looking forward to hooking it all up & extended the season some.

    Just curious which gloves. I have heard the T- 5 were the ones to get. Now Gerbings has something new called the GYDE G-3 or G-4. They also have a wireless dual controller.

    Have the wireless dual controller & it kicks ass. I'm away at work for the next few days, but if I remember when I'm home I'll check which gloves I have. Been very, very happy with the whole setup so far - it seriously extended my riding season. I was last out about 10 days ago, but I expect it will be a good while before I can ride again. It's currently -25C at home (too tired to do the conversion to freedom degrees right now).

    That is a bit cold even in Freedom degrees. -13. I assume the wireless has some sort of battery. I also read where some gloves can be used with a battery as well as 12v bike power. I didn't like the battery only gloves. My thinking was when the battery was low you had to have 115v power to charge them.

    One last riding pic of the season... a cool old place - I want to buy that vintage gas pump for my backyard decor! LOL:

    So as promised, I just checked and the gloves are the gerbing G3s.

    Are your G-3 gloves wired or wireless or both?

    One more question about wireless controller. Since I saw Bluetooth and wireless which do you have?

    OK one more question. What type of battery goes in the wireless controller?
