I finally got out on a ride with my newly replaced heated vest. The old one had died and I brought it in for warranty work. I originally purchased it as an XL because it was only $40!! (used to be $140). The store was nice enough to go down a few sizes on the replacement, so it actually fits properly. What a difference it makes in heat!
Today was 40F. With the old vest, I would have had it on high the entire time, but with the new vest, I kept toggling between low and medium.
As you can see from the photo above, it was a great day to be out riding. I only saw one other motorcycle which was a bit sad. I put in about 150 miles on the SV650. I didn’t go anywhere interesting, I just rode around the greater metro area looking at the lakes.
