I have the older set... works well..
I wear these under my slacks..... so YES.. that pair of slacks is 2 sizes larger then I normally wear.
I also have a heated Vest... its over 20 years old.. that company is long out in business.
for the 40's-50's, I have longjohns from the Hunters section at Walmart.
Best thing about wearing long johns/thermal underwear is that you can still use your armored and/or kevlar riding jeans over the top.
Kevlar, armored jeans is something I always ride with these days. Too many crazy, distracted drivers out there for me to leave home without them. Broken body parts and road rash don't heal as well or as quickly once you're an old fart.
In response to this thread, I donned my insulated farmer coveralls for a ride in 40 degree weather. There was some moisture on the road but not enough to look unsafe. The farmer getup kept me warm but whenever I changed gears or applied brake pressure I could feel the rear tire losing control - sliding to the right just enough that I aborted the 25 mile test ride after six miles. Problem is that air temp might be 40 but the actual road in some places will be near freezing and water begins to gel. Please consider this advice to avoid biking in less than 50 degrees. You might be able to ride warmly with your outfit but when traffic happens the road may not support your defensive riding.
The most convenient solution I've found is a set of leather chaps. They block the wind and your jeans insulate way down in the 40's. You can take them off if you go somewhere inside and store them in your saddlebags.

I'm appreciating VTXOA more than ever these days as I recently purchased a Yamaha Raider and am learning that bike's forums are pretty dead. On this forum I'm confident that most issues I may have with my bike has already been discussed and resolved, and those that haven't will get a supportive...
Since I claimed the last mark on the 2019 Hunt, I use all my unofficial authority to start for 2020
As always, the point is to encourage us to get out and ride. More importantly, to have fun and we all know those two often go hand in hand.
So for rules:
A mark/tag is named and the first...
Picked up this 2006 VTX 1300 C today.
19,000 miles on the clock and well kept - but it'll need some repainting on a few brackets and some detailing.
Now off to shop for a passenger backrest + rear rack.
