I went for a ride yesterday . It was 37F. No heat on the feet :-)
Cold is only the absence of heat

I feel for the 01-05 wing riders, no warm air vent for the tootsies and shins
But I will acknowledge they dont do much when its under 45 degrees.
But somethings better than nothing...ha! :D

I installed a pair of Baker Built foot wings and they made a huge difference in keeping my feet warm in cold weather.

I wear thick socks over thin socks inside boots and leather chaps when it is cold. I don't have a problem and I don't have to add things to the bike.
It ain't the destination but the getting there. You are not lost until you run out of gas.

Are the foot warmer vents open? Of course you don't say if it's too much heat or not enough.

His profile shows 2008. Depending on what model it may or may not have foot warmers. Look like the base model did not have them.
He hasn't responded for a couple weeks now.

I have then on my 2012. Makes a big difference with the foot vents open.
