Heated Grips - how to avoid the flat battery blues

Submitted by skutr on Mon, 27/09/2010 - 1:35pm

The most common (and generally reliable) heated grip on the Australian market is Oxford HotGrips.  Over the last 10 years these have progressed through a number of models, with each (in the eyes of some) being an improvement on the earlier versions.  The latest model (at October 2010) which is computer controlled is available in 2 variants, OF693 or OF 696, and the only difference between the two seems to be the pattern embossed on the rubber grip.

or Auxiliary Power Outlet Installation

On our recent “Last 4 days of Winter” trip Neville Large lost part of the bodywork from his newly acquired Suzuki Bergman 650 executive.  He had plugged the power supply of his GPS into the power outlet in the left hand glove box – the GPS worked a treat – but the power supply made it impossible to close the glove box.   So he rode with the glove box lid open.  And he suffered the consequences!
