I've had both ~ love the convenience of the Grip but the Gloves are a better choice for heat ~ I ride alot so my hands are not always on the grip and the grips seemed not to work as well at higher speeds ~ I have the gloves now and have no intention of adding the heated grips to my RG ~

I've been running Brookstone heated glove liners. They take 3 AAs each. With NiZn rechargeables the high setting gets warm enough to feel warm indoors or warm enough to take off the chill on the bike and run for an hour or so on that setting when the batteries are in OK shape.

Even with my old Kawasaki that had no wind protection at all at the grips I'd have no qualms about running this setup deep into the 20s.

Love the gloves! (and my heated liner) As said earlier, keeps you whole hand warm! We rode last night in 20 mph north winds and 40 degrees! My hands were toasty!

You need a selection for both. I have heated grips and seat. I'm good down to about 35 or so with that. Below that, I add the heated jacket and gloves. When it gets down into the mid 20's, I add heated pants.

I vote for the gloves too! I used to use heated glove liners. I just bought a pair of Berling's T5 Gloves and they're awesome. I also use a heated jacket and a pair of chaps. The only thing that stops me from riding is the snow. Don't mind the cold as long as I have my heated gear on. Good luck on your choice.

I just pucked up this year at the NY motorcycle show a set of heated glove liners which I wear with my deer skin gauntlet gloves as well as the heat demons grip heaters. I haven't installed the heat demins as of yet but I rode with the glove liners on a cold morning about 35 degrees out and I was very happy with the outcome can't wait to put on the heat demons that would really make it super comfortable. I'm not comfortable bulking up with all the heated gear. So that's the coldest I've ridden in.

I would like both because I can drive with a thinner glove and not some kind of snow mobile mitt. Then I can also stand outside off the bike and have a smoke with the gloves still hooked up to the bike and the bike not running.

I don't like the bulky gloves either. Picked up the Harley ones this winter and for me there are not bad. Definitely made riding in 40 easier. I had some non heated winder riding gloves and they were too thick.
