heated clothing info

Postby Ga. Reb » Sat Oct 01, 2011 4:23 pm



Can anyone tell me if a Harley power unit will work with Gerbling's heated clothing?
I have a pair of Harley heated gloves and I also have the double power control.
A friend found a Nice almost new Gerblings heated jacket liner on the side of the road and is going to let me have it.
I know the plugs are the same just not sure if they will work. Anyone know???
Tks

If the plugs are the same, then they should work - it's all 12 volts.

Chances are that the "Harley" heated clothes are actually just re-branded Gerbings anyway, especially if the plugs are the same.

His is right, the harley stuff is rebadged gerbling stuff. The controls will work fine. Hope you enjoy the heated liner as much as I do mine.

Most of the time I get to ride all winter unless it is ice or cold raining. Then the Samurai's go to work.
I need to update the web site, but thanks.

Thanks for the helpfull info.
Used them this morning on a 100 mile ride up to the Mountains. IT was 39 at 08:30 AM
Liner felt great and you don't have to wear a big heavy jacket. The liner and a thin leather jacket does the trik.
Now the gloves? Worth every cent !!!
A friend went down on his wing yesterday and it looks like it will be a yard sale item now.
He is not to bad. Broken wrist, shoulder and a LOT of road rash.
Four wheelr took him out on a 90* turn.
Hit him, stopped just long enough to see it he was able to get up or not, then left.
ride SAFE.

Ga Reb, glad that it work out and the liner keep you warm. We have to get together and make a ride. Was suppose to go to Gay, Ga today for a old time get together. I would have got the liners out for me and the wife.
Hope your fiend heals up ok and they catch the person that hit them. What was he riding? Seem to be a bad day for that. We had one of our students on a motorcycle hit another student in a car that turn in front of him yesterday at the football game at UWG. He did not fair well. He didnt make it to the hospital. Police officers wittness the accident, so they knew what happen.
