So far yes. I've was able to use it Wednesday & Thursday of this week. It was able to feel the heat quickly - within a block. The nice added touch is the second inbound power for gloves which can go on a separate controller. I had both the jacket & gloves on the same controller as I had not fished the other cable out from under the faring yet. The gloves (Gerbing G3s) worked just fine and I stayed warm. The temps were from 25f to 35f both days.

I did have to turn them down and the grip heaters off while stuck in traffic when the radiator fan kicked in. When I got cold I got cold enough I decided to turn up the RPMs which helped me out.
