    Heated grip installed and working. Let the winter arrive, I'm ready!
    Those Daytona DT11 are really neat. The integrated switch is really nice and discrete.

    I've been looking at those very same Daytona grips for my bikes. How easy or difficult are they to install?

    They are easy to install. Like all others heated grip you'll have to rework the throttle plastic tube to make it perfectly round and remove lines. In this kit no glue included. I personally use Loctite black silicone joint I had laying there , but adapted glue exists.
    Electric connection is straight forward, thanks to the integrated switch.
    I personally wired this on the accessory circuit, after a relay,
    It can be connected direct to the battery. The grip wire having it's own fuse.
    The overall quality feels great.

    My other half has one of those. It's cool but my Arai still has plenty of life in it so I'm not changing yet.

    Well not today but hopefully at the weekend I will finally adjust the Speed Twin rear shocks to see if it will stop it trying to put me in a hedge.

    Have to take off the exhausts to do that! ( I'm going to snap my keyboard in half just thinking about that.)

    Its not really though is it. Free of other twats on bikes holding you up filtering etc.

    Although it was this month 6years ago riding into work on sheet ice I said, "WTF are you doing?" I had the chance also to get coach driven to work if I took a secondment. Took it and sold the hack.

    I am now a fair-weather fairy/weekend warrior, trying to avoid being a statistic come March/April. Apologies in advance for my de-graded riding skills, poor decision making and down to a snails pace and 50 pencing round corners with a mere sprinkling of "rain."

    Yours humbly. :yum

    been out into the yard and put the optimate on... does that count as doing something.... cold and foggy this morning - just under 4 deg C...thought not to risk it and the memsahib thought the bus the safer option too

    going to remove, drain, refill and fit new springs in the forks tomorrow though..

    I had a "cool" ride to work today. The temperature went from -2 to 1 degree Celsius (28,4 F to 33,8 F). It is a 60 km (37,2 mile) trip over the highway.
    I love my onboard heat grips!!!;)

    Church is holding a ride tomorrow, but it's not in the cards for me. Bikes are stored and my beloved wishes to visit her parents, who are not doing well.

    @Hobnail, I wish your beloved's parents well. :kissing_heart:

    I'm curious about your church holding a ride. What sort of ride and what sort of church? I ask because we have some "biker churches" sprinkled throughout the Southwest out here.
