    New tires are such a treat! An expensive treat, but a treat nonetheless. Enjoy them, @Glenn2926! :)

    Great addition to the "bike" stable, @Markus! But I think the best kind of bike for most of those weather situations that you named is one that's in the garage. :eek::joy:

    Next week the temperatures will reach a rideable niveau. No ice and up to 6-8 degree celsius in the afternoon. :)

    Sleekyglide Clutch cable from wemoto online. Ordered using their search for my bike fitment (1997 T509 Speed Triple), it arrived on Saturday and when I went to fit it, I found it was approx 5 inches too long. Called wemoto and spoke to customer services who agreed that it was their error and they would send the correct cable out on return of the wrong part. It should arrive tomorrow and hopefully will be a good fit this time. Must say tho, great service from wemoto, no quibbles about the original wrapping being damaged by opening as their site was wrong, and first class postage too. Fingers crossed.

    Good ol' 885 ... my first Hinckley. Clocked almost 140 mph one day before the road got a bit short in a hurry ! Was nice getting back to normal when brain caught up with reality .. phew :relieved:, it certainly gives huge appreciation to the blokes racing at 180/200 odd mph. And, thanks for the report on Wemoto, good to know. ( P/S .... may have got the factory rated 145mph if I hadn't forgot these things have six gears !!!!!!! :blush: haha

    Due to my very good experience in 2022 with the textile jacket MODEKA VIPER LT I ordered it another time. Since it is somewhat small-cut, this time one size larger. Today I wore it in combination with warm underwear at -5 degrees Celsius on 60 km ride and it was sufficiently warm.

    Keis heated vest and gloves. Very impressed on first real life test today. I feel the cold (I'm a delicate flower!) but these are fantastic so far. They have extended my riding season by quite a bit I think.
    Not cheap of course but I think they're well worth it.
    Anyone else have an opinion on them or similar gear, good or bad?

    I have a cheap Chinese heated vest I got from Amazon for about £16 in 2021 just to trial heated kit - I am actually very impressed with it, although do worry I might burst into flames one day :laughing:.

    I have a heated vest, @TripleGrey, and I love it! It definitely makes a big difference in my comfort level when riding while it's cold. Yes, well worth it! I'm glad you're enjoying your new heated gear.

    I just ordered Oberon adjustable clutch and brake levers for my Street Glide Special. Nothing like a little carpal tunnel surgery to make you realize how much your clutch hand has to work to ride a motorcycle! I'm putting different bars on this bike so figured I'd do the levers at the same time. Lots of color combos available. I went with something "wild"--black levers and black adjustment knobs. ;):joy:

    Well, certainly not THAT! :eek::scream: :joy::joy::joy:

    I've ordered some fairly conservative bars from a company called Khrome Werks. They're not the currently trendy T-bars nor are they ape hangers or beach bars. They'll be narrower than my current bars by several inches and put me 2 inches up from stock with 2 inches more pullback than stock. The ones I ordered only come in chrome so I'm having them powder coated black as there's not one chrome thing on my touring Harley.

    Well let's hope not! Maybe pick up a cheap Chinese fire extinguisher just in case. :laughing:
