Your hands are often the first parts of your body to feel cold and the first to go numb, impacting the control of your bike. Most people don’t understand why they get cold.
If you’re wearing windproof, waterproof, insulated gloves and your hands still get cold, it’s not because you need to wear more layers or bulkier gloves but rather it’s because your body is keeping all its warm blood in your trunk to keep your organs up to temp. In short, your hands are cold because your torso is cold.
To prevent this, it’s often a case of better insulating or heating your torso. Put on an extra insulation under your jacket (fleece, sweatshirt, or liner) seal off drafts better, cover your neck and tuck in your sweatshirt. If that’s not enough, look into a heated jacket or vest, (we even have ones that run on its own battery so no over taxing a old charging system.) Most of the time, a heated jacket alone will be enough to keep all of your body warm. By keeping your core temperature up it will keep your warm blood actively pumping around your entire body, including your hands.
Another helpful fix is to remove your hands from the air stream this doesn’t change the theory of core body temperature. ATV hand mitts are great. With hand mitts, you can ride in lighter gloves in any weather, you’ll just look a little odd but your warm hands will more than make up for that, and they can come off fast when temps warm up or you park the bike and don’t like the look. I like Ducks Unlimited Handwarmers the best then Quadboss ATV hand Mitts
Your legs are less important for overall warmth, but there’s no reason they should be cold and uncomfortable. Start with sweatpants, fleece, thermals, or jeans if you’re planning on wearing winter over pants. If you’ve riding in regular jeans, now is the time to add knee armor or chaps. In addition to protecting you from impacts and abrasion, knee armor does a fantastic job of blocking airflow over a very exposed and thinly insulated part of your body.
Last are your feet. When you’re picking out socks, height and fit are most important. A tight fit keeps blood from lingering in your feet and calves where it loses heat and if one pair doesn’t do the trick, then add thick boot socks. Boots are even easier. Just about anything that isn’t a racing or summer boot will be reasonably water and wind proof and if yours are leather, it’s easy to add Mink oil and beeswax. For even better weather protection upgrade to a Gore-Tex lined boot.
One of the best ways to go is a motorcycle specific jacket and pants combo or one-piece suit. In addition to regular motorcycle things like impact protection and abrasion resistance, you should wear something that’s wind and water proof as your outer ware to keep the heat in.
Despite what hard-core rider will tell you, operating clutch and brake levers with frostbit is incredibly painful it dose not make you hard just unprepared. Arriving with pale blue hands and a bad mood is no way to take a ride that you should and can enjoy
Well it almost always happens. It's when you combine Gold Wingers (bikers), good food, better stories, and great friends. So what do you get? A whole lot of fun, what else. Thursday night, November 3, is when it happened. Bobby Manning, with his better half Alice, as chapter directors of NC-D (the DownEast Gold Wings) do a great job. We had a pretty good turn out at the meeting with our regulars and some visitors we had not seen in a while. A little joking (with a lot of laughs), many door prizes, and 50/50 drawings make for a very enjoyable gathering. Preacher Cliff does an auction that has a especially funny spend. He auctions off precious and valuable items (the kind of collectibles that fall out of the closet) and the money raised from the auction goes to the Ronald McDonald House. Of course there is a serious side to the meetings, such as, we discuss safety issues (like deer and other animals out to get us); technical advice (like keeping your tire pressure checked - colder temperatures greatly reduces your tire pressure); and special concerns for members and friends. Chapter NC-D is an active chapter that does a lot of good things for the community and the motorcyclist while having fun.
Come on out and visit with us at the Golden Corral on the 1st Thursday of each month. Be prepared to have fun and a great meal with a friendly bunch of Wingers.

Have you ever been cold on a ride? If you answered no you only ride on sunny days in the summer. The rest of us know that even if it’s 55º out, you can still freeze your butt off. Here’s how you can stay warm and ride year round.
It’s the obvious answer but in practice, layering effectively is not something that just happens. The goal is to get maximum warmth with minimal bulk. Adding clothes until you look like the Michelin man probably won’t keep you as warm as a few well chosen items.
Layering for motorcycle riding is much different than what you would do for other cold weather activities. Cruising down the freeway at 55 mph is not an intense physical activity though. You’re sitting motionless for miles, and when you do move, it’s small movement of the right wrist, two fingers pulling a brake lever, or a flick of your left ankle to shift gears. None of that is going to generate any heat.
What you need your clothing to do then is retain the heat your body produces at rest and insulate your extremities from the cold. Start with something very thin and close fitting soft cotton long-sleeve t-shirts. Next add tight fitting fleece pull-over or a sweatshirt. Under a warm jacket with a liner something with a windproof, waterproof shell.
One area you shouldn’t forget about is your neck. This is a major area of heat loss for motorcyclists. It’s easy to cover pullover neek wrap with something made with windstopper material is best, that way you only need the one layer there.
