I'm sure your electrically heated jacket will work on the WR. Mine does.

Can we make it more like noon thirty? Gotta do some work around here and move my vehicles/trailers so the parking situation is a little more party friendly.

Edit: now I won't be trail riding in that heat.......

Hi Carrie! I find it easier to keep warm than cool on a MC. I've ridden in 115 heat in Las Vegas and Death Valley which sucked big time. I was on my ST1300 and it's a freakin' blow torch to the body though. :(

I got some tips from my iron butt buddy.
LD comfort undergarments. Dampen with water,put on your full gear, open only the back facing vents. (Reduce dehydration). You'll be cold if it drops below 85. Works amazing.

Admitting you have a butt buddy of any form may not be the wisest thing to do on here...
