yechave Posted October 26, 2007 Share Posted October 26, 2007 I headed out this morning to the dealer for two reasons. See how all the gear / bike worked in cold weather, and buy some Plexus. On the way, I had the grip heater on high. Never used it before, never had a bike that had one. Half way there I noticed either I was affected by the cold and not releasing the throttle, or it was sticking. I'd ridden this about 1500 miles so far, and have not had any problems prior to today. I then just left my hand off the throttle at speed, and it was locked in whatever position I left it in. My guess was the heat swelled the rubber on the grip a bit. I assume the dealer moved the bar end out some, and that took care of it. No one really said. I didn't have time to wait another 90 minutes to find out. I also realized none of the three pair of gloves I had were working very well for cold weather, even with the heated grip. Either too bulky, the wind went through or not enough inuslation with the nice leather gloves. I went to Cabela's before returning home, which now carry a new style glove you may be interested trying. The ICE armor waterproof ice fishing glove. Used it on the way home and it was incredibly warm and comfy. Only $30. Couldn't be more pleased with it! The last item I picked up today was a book "Sport Riding Techniques" by Nick Ienatsch. Highly recommend this too. Maybe someone else would like to offer a review, if it hasn't been done already. Link to comment
