    How do you keep warm in the winter months?

    I commute 17 miles each way from North Plano to Dallas Texas. Was a brisk 31 leaving the house this morning. Put my hands down by the engine head to give them some heat between stops. What sort of things do you all do to help keep warm in the winter months of riding?

    currently in South Texas.. but a Northern Ohio rider.... 47 years..

    heated Vest, heated chaps... Heavy non leather coat... light weight gloves UNDER heavy gloves that go over sleeves of coat...
    2 sets of socks... or electric socks.

    keep an eye on dark pavement.. could be black ice... in shade is bad..

    take care.. tomorrow is reported to be very COLD... even in McAllen/Mission.

    I park the bike until it warms up.

    Like he said layer up.
    I have coveralls I can wear usually help plus fairing blocks lot of wind. I don't ride below 35 I'm not a fan of ice skating.
    Blocking the wind getting to you is the main thing.
    Huge rubber bands around pant legs.
    Looks silly as heck but keeps the air from blowing up legs.

    Aye. I layered up this morning, but that cold wind just bites right through my gloves and froze my fingers. Rest of me wasn't too bad even though it was pretty cold. Still have to make the trip home later today. At least it warmed up to the 40s.
