    OK, so it's not really that cold where I live (overcast 40 deg F this afternoon), but my hands are asking for some heaters. Of course, my expectations are somewhat low, seeing as my 1150 ADV has like a 700W alternator, and this bike like 200 or so... Anyhow, what setup has worked well for you all?

    Thanks in advance.

    I just put some dual stars on a few weeks ago. I should have done it long ago. They are a nice clean setup because they have no inline resistor.

    Hoombah on the Symtec's as well.

    I'm only half-way into the first pot of coffee this AM, and I might not be assembling coherent thoughts but if I remember correctly the Symtec's use 20 watts or 1.6A which is lower than all other brands.

    I like the low profile round switch as well even through gloves.

    Low is toasty through Held Steve's and I liken High to a hot potato speed round.
