Upgrade to heated grips

Let’s make two assumptions: the first is that you plan to ride your bike in January and February, and the second is that your bike has a reasonably robust electrical system…

In the event of both these assumptions being true, you need to nip over to Wemoto to spend £40 on a set of Vicma heated handlebar grips.

These rubber grips are easy to install – no glue required – and are manufactured to resist cracking and deformation from repeated heating and cooling cycles. They steadily warm up while the engine is running, to reach and maintain temperatures of up to 90F (32C). You can adjust the heat to suit your sensitive little digits, and the system is protected by a safety relay… so sparks shouldn’t fly when the rain comes lashing down…
