Default Which is warmer??

Ok, so I need new winter gear and want some opinon.

Which type of jackets will keep you warmer in the cold? Not counting heated gear.
Leather, Cordura, Denier Nylon, etc

they depend on what they are lined with. Leather will give you the best protection tho

I'd say leather. The others are made to aid in repelling water, lightweight, cost.

I want to know "who" all these people are that ride in the winter?? It must not snow where they are at?? Must not be any sand and salt on the streets where they live?? I just dont understand why you would want to?? Jump in your car, its winter! Heated grips, heated jackets, heated gloves....if you need that stuff, its too cold for riding. I'm not going to suffer let alone torture my bike with all the gravel on the streets.

I live in MW GA, so our winters dont get that cold n we rarely get snow lol. Far as the sand/gravel, its no worse than riding in Florida any time of the year lmao.

I've seen the heated grips come in handy in the summer even. After a nice long day of riding in the mtns heading home after dark it can get kinda cool lol.

Most years, Jan n Feb are our worse months n usually dont get no riding in except for those random spring like days

I ride, my bike is for riding, not to be pretty, tho it is

I see you point of view from where you live tho

Ive learned how to ride often and kept it pretty too. Ive noticed all the big wigs on the 1000f's are pretty hardcore riders. Im surprised they're not talking about studded snow tires for their bikes??

lol! And built-in power & USB ports for their laptops so they can keep an eye on the forum while riding through a Minnasota snow storm.
