    Don't buy Dririder gear, It's neither dry or warm.
    Get just about any other brand for a start, A/star, Dainese, anything euro is good except RST.

    Next time Aldi has it's motorcycle gear sale,(July/august?) get to your nearest and grab the thermal undies and woolen turtle necks.

    Hands and feet, buy winter gloves/boots a size larger and wear glove liners and thick wool socks which you will have to order in from overseas or wear 2-3 pairs of the local ultra thin so called warm socks.

      I have never faulted Dryrider.
      I have had my current set since 2007.
      They have kept me dry and warm through tropical down pours and sleet and snow in a winter in NZ.

          That would be right if you bought Dririder back then. It was good stuff up to about 2010.
          I bought an entire Dririder outfit in 2011, all fell to bits/leaked after 1 year.

                Letting the cold in and going down the HTFU path is not an option any more these old bones would take half a day to thaw out.
                I've seen on Fakebook a heated vest and wonder about the possibility of those being worth the asking price. I'v seen heated gloves in NZ and wonder if they're available locally.
                So PSBer's have at it, serious replies and PI55 takers feel free your comments will be accepted in the spirit with which they are given.
                Bark-busters soft guards?

                95% of all cold hands problems solved, had them on the VFR, worked a treat, able to wear much lighter gloves and have my hands out of the wind blast, if you want to try them Mr Green Trident, send me an address an I'll bang them in the mail, as they're not required on the Busa….

                  Handlebar Mitts.
                  Amazon $15.00
                  The accessory that enabled us to ride dirt bikes in Hanmer Springs 12 months a year.
                  They fitted road bikes as well. But only Poofters used them.
                  They kept my hands warm(er), (ish) on my commute to Chch for school.
                  They looked ridiculous, however no more ridiculous than the Air Force great coat, Line 7 water proof pants and the compulsory fucking grey two piece suit.
                  Fuck the snow.

                    the limited chilly riding I've done so far has been mitigated by heated grips. So far so good.....
