Experience with heated grips?
I can't see myself being bothered to fool with heated gloves and all the wiring involved. Simplicity is what I love about bikes, and all the things about tethering yourself to heated gear every time you hop on and off the bike just don't appeal to me very much. I don't do well with things like that (constraints) and I know I will be constantly distracted due to worrying about the wires getting tangled, whether they actually would or not. It's just how I am. I've been considering heated grips, but I'm unsure how effective they actually are.
For reference, I'm pretty tolerant to temp swings. I work outside year 'round. I can ride in temps as low as 30*f at highway speeds for about an hour before my hands really get uncomfortable using standard winter motorcycle/snowmobile gloves. I have ridden into the teens with only longjohns under blue jeans & longjohns under a t-shirt under a simple textile jacket and have been perfectly content. I do pretty well in the cold, it's only my hands that get cold. I do have hippo hands which work quite well, but I'm curious if heated grips aren't a better option?
Anyone here use them? What do you think about them? Any particular model or brand you find to be better than others?
