Cold Weather Gear options

I finally got heated clothing for commuting, I purchased a First Gear Heated Jacket liner (65 watt):

Firstgear Heated Jacket Liner - RevZilla

Then I got a troller (weird name) so I could adjust the heat. I am wearing it under my Spidi jacket:

Spidi Marathon H2OUT Jacket - RevZilla

I am guessing the liner won't over load my bike's system, Beemer or Pani.

Ive been using the Alpinestars Andes Drystar Jacket and Pants with the liners in and its worked pretty well. Almost froze a few times last year so I'm looking at the Firstgear 65w heated jacket liner also to add to the jacket. I have liner and gore tex gloves with heated grips so hands aren't the issue. Did you get the liner yet?

Yes, I used it with the heater @48 degrees tonight first time - hotter than a Panigale It is a great wind-stop, even though it says it breathes. I wore it under my perforated jacket at 80 mph, no air and very toasty!

I got a medium. Is a snugger fit then I would like in a regular windbreaker-type jacket, but they say it is supposed to hug you to heat better. I got it too because my Ducati Corsa leather jacket is perfed, and lets the wind right through. The jacket performed flawlessly keeping me warm - down right hot and I only go the 75 watt one. The troller helps adjust the temp. I had a pig tail on my battery already for radar/iPhone, so I just plug it in, keep the temp control in the pocket.
