Re: Heated grips

Hi that reminds me I was supposed to dig the grips out for Andy.

Hi Barry
how long can you wear Anti-slash Long Johns? 90 minutes would be the max for me, in fact sometimes (cold, coffee, last nights beer, etc) I need to go every hour. Or maybe you can do it inside the long johns and wash them every night
