    You'll find that even in the late spring and early fall you will use your heat in the rain under your coat.. :nod..

    I always remove the liner when I wear heated gear... not need for it.

    I leave my liner in as It's always 19* when I'm riding ...
    And it works as a wind blocker more... I don't have wind screens on my bikes..

    But come spring I will take the lines out..And just use Jacket and Gerbings..

    Hi!!! I'm relatively new to dual sporting (done it enough to know I fall down alot, lol) and thought I would introduce myself. I live in Denver and ride a KLR. I'm hoping to get some practice in this summer, I'd rather not keep falling, that pig of a bike is heavy to pick up... I've ridden bikes for a long time, but they were street bikes. I road raced for 5 years down in Texas and loved it, but am wanting to try a different kind of riding to see some different scenery. Dual sporting seems perfect for that. Anyway, glad to be here.

    Hi there!

    Little Mighty checking in from Cape Town, South Africa

    I have two little bikes; a Honda XR 125 that's my commuting bike and a Suzuki Djebel 250 XC that's the weekend warrior and soon to be tourbike.

    Hope all the other girls are also going to be on their bikes this weekend.

    Have fun and be safe!

    Hello ladies!

    Well, my first solo road trip is coming up in a few weeks. I haven't gotten the time under my butt I would like to have in preparation. The weather just hasn't been much for riding lately.

    I have a couple ideas I'm toying with as to which direction I'm heading, but nothing definite yet.

    This will be my first chance to really get out and use my new gear. Still need to practice with the riding camera. I haven't tried it out at all yet.

    I'm getting excited about my little adventure. No stranger to long trips on the bike, but not a multi-day solo trip! My biggest hope is the weather stays pleasant throughout the ride. I've got enough days built in on each side I can sit tight if needed.

    So glad it's finally starting to clear up and warm up. Let the fun begin! :clap
