I'm ready to pack this stuff away for a while ...

I have the Gerbings with a dual thermostat controlling the jacket and gloves. I also hang the thermostat off the tankbag and adjust on the fly for either jacket or gloves. Mine is the old style-not micro wire but worked fine on a recent trip to Daytona and back.

I bought mine while at Bike Week couple of years ago during the last day of the show and the vendor discounted it heavily and even threw in the dual thermostat and leather carrier for the price of a single thermostat when I bought the jacket and the gloves.

Good stuff. Not sure I would have made it to Daytona in the frigid weather without it. When I got cramps in the shoulder while riding, I just cranked the gray controller on the thermostat up to increase the heat just to the jacket.
