I finally gave in and got myself a pair of Gerbing T5 heated gloves. I like to keep my motorcycling as simple as possible (ie: less stuff to wire up is a good thing)... but I've been finding my hands the only part not keeping warm on chilly days. So now that I have the gloves, a couple of questions:
Any suggestions on routing the wires?? Is the norm to run them up inside the jacket and down the sleeves? Any tips on where to locate the controller? I put it under the seat, but I have a feeling I'm going to want access to it while I'm riding.
Other question... I was going to buy some Nikwax (Glove Proof) as the outer (leather) shell is not waterproof. Buy my local dealer suggested just spraying on a light coating of silicone spray instead. They said they've seen some bad side-effects of using Glove Proof on T5s (shrinking, for example). What do you think about silicone spray on leather gloves? My concern is that it might make them less grippy. Anyone have experience doing this?
