Im gonna second Mercenary on the Choko stuff. Works good for the money. Sorry, I can't agree with Noddy (no offense s'il vous plait) an electric vest weighs next to nothing, and works great. I build vest controllers, and will send you one of my home builts if you like. I've built a few for my IBR rider friends so far, and they seemed to have worked well for them. And yep, you got a place to stay, and warm up here in Onterio.... You may also want to consider Hippo Hands, in conjunction with heated grips, I think it would work well. Your GPS may be useless to some extent at our temperatures, because the LCD display will become faint, or literally freeze, and you won't be able to see it. Baba Iguana made a good point about the starting fluid (ether) Be careful with it, but it will get the damn thing started when all else fails. My friends around here drill a 1/4" hole in the airbox to spray it in, to save some hassle. I'm gonna ride some ice roads around here on the KLR soon, I'll post some pics for ya! MMMM, just think of how good that cold beer will taste!!
