Not sure if this belongs here.
I'm on my 3rd month of my learners and I'm really enjoying riding but it's really starting to get cold here in Canberra.
I wear standard jeans with some Kathmandu thermals under them, my jacket with the same thermals, usually a T-shirt as well, gloves etc. No of which are winter specific. By the time I get to work, I'm frozen and it's only going to get worse.
There are motorbike specific "thermals" which are reasonably priced. Does anyone have any experience with these? Would it be better to buy Skin's thermals?
I have been looking at heated hand grips but don't really want to modify my bike. Are winter gloves decent? Are they so thick you have no dexterity left?
Any recommendations for how to stay warm in winter would be appreciated.
