How can I keep my legs warm Q when rid­ing in win­ter?

I am start­ing to feel the cold on my daily com­mute (about 25 miles each way, so 45 min­utes or so). I have good gloves and muffs and the screen helps keep the wind off of my hands and chest. Where I’m re­ally feel­ing it at the mo­ment is my legs. I wear Alpines­tars tex­tile trousers with long johns. I’ve seen heated jack­ets and gloves on my trav­els but does any­one do heated trousers? Mark Wil­liams, Dal­ston

A Keith Rois­set­ter, In­fin­ity Mo­tor­cy­cles I know of two op­tions: Keis’s X2i trousers and Gerb­ing’s heated trouser liner. Both draw about 3.5 amps so you’ll need to wire them in to the bike. Maybe some heated soles from EXO2 or Keis would also warm you from the bot­tom up? Both can be bat­tery-pow­ered – in fact the EXO2 comes with a cou­ple of lithium-ion bat­ter­ies.
