if the the wattage was not available.

I've always had the best luck using a Heat-Troller to control the grips
on my large bore street stuff. On the DR,KLR I can get warm not hot
with the toggle type switches.
Continue....what elements are you running on the Strom, FJR, etc wit the Heat troller?....Dual Star?

Any other ideas?
Are you joking or are you for real? "Officially" they're not bad, I've heard they have more class then U students.

Yep, Dual Star stuff has held up very well. I use Heat-Trollers to control
my grips and heated vest outlet.

I coat the Heat-Troller circuit board with liquid electrical tape just to
be freaky. Provides a nice seal and keeps stuff from vibrating around.

The FJR....



Strom, one for grips one for vest outlet. Set the temp right where you want it.

I saw those heated grips. I went there because a friend told me they had two pw50's and I'm in the market for a bike for the kid. Unfortunatly they were sold.

Does you calibrated hand indicate that the Heat-Troller grip is hotter that the switch controlled grip at MAX setting? or equal?

Obviously a joke, fine don't run with it. A somber mood here tonight huh. Could
have ran the gamut of all religious schools and gently made fun of them all equally.

On a more serious note I've heard the Y's history classes get interesting as do probably any religious schools.

I took the post down for those of you who cannot handle it.

Very nice setup. Looks ike it will probably continue to last.

So far I've just been wearing gloves, but tomorrow looks even colder. Sounds like a good reason to telecommute.

That's cute that telemarker's struggle to not fall over... sigh... I enjoy blasting vertically through a 12 foot wind lip on the steep side of a ravine, but maybe in the next post... surfing in frozen clouds... *sigh*
