Feet Warm at 40

I was heading out for a nice day of riding, no destination, just riding some of my favorite roads around upper part of South Carolina.  I was looking for curvy roads to practice engine braking.  My goal was to get comfortable rolling on and off the throttle with my R1200RT at 6,000-7,000 rpm in 1st, 2nd and 3rd gear.

Checking the temp, it was 40 degrees and not expected to get much warmer.  Putting on my electic vest, I know my body would be warm, but my toes were already complaining.  Reaching in my saddlebag, I opened Foot Warmers.  I picked these up at Walmart for $1.  I prefer the ones shapped liked insole and not just Toe warmers.

I find they work best if I don’t peal off the sticky liner, instead I just drop them in my boots.  I can ride all day and toes never complain.  I take an extra pack in my “just in case” supply.
