Welcome to Harley Davidson Accessories Guide.


When the old man winter blows in, it signals the end of the motorcycle riding season. Especially those of you residing in the icy,snowy climate like Alaska, Northern Rockies or Minnesota. Otherwise you can extend your riding season for two months. You can ride earlier in Spring or later in fall. With knowledge and proper riding gear, it;s feasible to ride in the cold.


You can cover yourself with multiple layers of clothing, but still feel cold while riding your motorcycle. The solution? Electric clothing. Probably the best invention in modern motorcycling. Electric clothing that runs on 12 volts just be connecting to the bike’s electrical system can make your two-wheeled ride into a moving rapture.


The primary reason for wearing electric clothing is to avoid hypothermia. This usually happens when you body temperature drops down the normal level. Ot may be happening to you and yet may not be aware of it. When the coldness gets to you hands and feet, then to your vital organs like the brain. The results are: your reflexes will slow down and your judgment skews. You can;t handle the controls well if you don’t feel your hands and feet. This is a dangerous combination especially if you are riding.


Also, the moving chilly air could surprisingly suck away all your body’s warmth faster than you may have realize. When you core temperature reaches 90 degrees, you will pass out.


There are various factors that affect how cold we get on a bike like windshield. your body fat content and the food that you have eaten just prior to riding. But there’s nothing like the biggest impact of wearing electric clothing.


The electric vest is the biggest seller when it comes to electric clothing. Once your body warms when you wear the electric vest, the warmth or heat extends to the extremities.


Another seller is the jacket liner. Riders have decided that you need warmth in the arms just as well as other parts in the body.


Some mistaken notion about wearing electric clothing during winter is electrocution. People are afraid, they will be electrocuted when wearing one. First of all heated garments are waterproof and they run on 12 volt current only. The worst that could happen is that you feel a mild zing when riding through a small lake or body of water. Another thing, electric clothing don’t take up much amperage even if your sporting a full suit complete with accessories(lights and audio). Newer motorcycles have huge alternator outputs. Some run 500 to 700 watts. If you are worried about how much you and your passenger’s electric clothing amperage drawing, buy an inexpensive voltmeter to control your alternator’s condition.


Electric clothing manufacturers like Aerostitch, Gerbing and Widder produce a wide variety of heated clothing that you can mix and match and can be readily integrated because there is no standard connector.


Electric vests,chaps,jacket liners,gloves,heated grips,electric socks etc. have been redesigned and improved as time and technology have warranted. There are reversible electric vest.fleece on the inside and nylon on the outside. It will enable you to use it, in a variety of temperature. Riders appreciate the reversible electric vest for its versatility. Heated collars and heated pockets also offered gratifying relief of cold. Makes you feel toasty on the coldest of days and nights.


The bottom line here is electric clothing makes you feel comfortable and enables you to enjoy your ride better. It keeps you safer from hypothermia.


The choices that you make when buying electric clothing all come down to function,comfort, style and you budget.

  1. The first electric motorcycle vests made an appearance in 1971. However, they have not become a rage because most riders suffer from electrocution fears. They prefer to face the cold to bring electric clothes. Psychology is a very regrettable. Passengers should be aware that clothing is connected 12-volt electrical charge. It is not strong enough to strike a blow, much less a fatal case.
