10 Cold-weather Motorcycle Accessories

Consider Electrically Heated Clothing

Is the cold still getting you down? Maybe it's time to enlist the help of technology in your battle against the elements.

Technology has plenty to offer when it comes to riding your motorcycle in the cold. With heated clothing, you're sure to be warm, toasty and snug as you rack up the miles on your hog. Think of a portable electric blanket that looks and fits like a vest or jacket. See, electrically heated clothes have wires running throughout them that, when charged by your motorcycle's battery, actually heat up. When they're properly heated, they transfer said heat to your body, ensuring that your ride is as comfortable as possible. In addition, you can get a gauge that shows how much of your ride's battery is being used, so you can make sure not to burn up too much energy in your pursuit of warmth.
