Yeah, I normally wear layer by putting on a t-shirt, then the gaiter, then a tight thermal over the gaiter to create more of a "seal". My neck is where I'm a wuss.

Well, the VNB doesn't really have any place to plug one in. That or the Stella Sound System (tm).


This is the vest I'm thinking about. Its not a plug in model which might not be as nice as something like the Gerbings' liners but I think it would fit my own needs better.

That's Awesome! I am glad you were not hurt. You can get damaging frost bite in about 30secs when traveling at speed when it is that cold...... So don't be too crazy peeps.

Hat's off to you!

I don't think I got above 20. Maybe 25 on Kasota.

I hate to tell you, Matty, but scooters are for nerds.

My gear, adjusting layers as needed:

Cabela's Guidewear bibs and jacket for the shell. Insulated bibs for the nasty days.
Fleece jacket as under-layer for colder days.
300g Thinsulate mitts, plus liners.
Lowa insulated winter hikers, plus insulated overboots when needed (adds about 20C insulation)
Full face HJC with added breath guard and winter shield (double layer for anti-fog) with lycra balaclava some days - really need to find a balaclava that's fully windproof.

Haven't need the longies yet. Need to get off my lazy ass and install the grip heaters, though - on the -24C days, my fingertips do suffer even when the rest of me is toasty.

I got mine at Fleet Farm.

Ever try the ATV hand covers? I bought a cheap pair at Cabella's, but Kevin Wynn runs a set on his Ural that he bought from Parts Unlimited. They fit a lot better than my set from Cabellas.
Email me and I'll find out the exact brand.

Thanks. They looked like they might interfere with the controls a bit, but since you've got a testimonial, I'll drop a line ;)

I'll check out FleetFarm for the bala. Most of the ones form the outdoor shops are fleece, and I'me really looking for lycra to fit the helmet better.
