Commuting - October 30

The rain and fog made this mornings ride interesting. It was cool (40F) and very dark. My new Tourmaster Epic coat in blinding hi-viz worked great at keeping me warm and dry. The new hi-viz pants just barely fit over the new Tourmaster Venture pants. The recurring rain has given me plenty of opportunities to test the waterproofing of my new gear. I am happy to report, that I have been warm and dry.

My heated vest failed a few days ago. According to the Tourmaster warranty, I'm covered for three years as long as I have the receipt (check!) and I bring it back to the store where I purchased it. I brought it back on Thursday morning, and they ordered up a replacement. I am hopeful that it will arrive this coming Tuesday. I've been lucky that the temperature has been steady between 40-50F, so I can survive without the vest.

I received my digital voltmeters (two), and I hope to get at least one of them installed this weekend. I am still trying to decide how best to mount them without breaking out the zip ties and tape.
