That exo2 heated clothing is intriguing. Those helmets look interesting.

Lose the comic-book paint jobs and charge $50 less, they might have something.

Criminy! The graphics are so loud you cannot see the helmet features. Apparently they make one type of hat for each paint job.

And, they're hung up on an Aviator theme. Yeesh.

And they've got lights on 'em. I wonder what DOT thinks about that?

I finally had time to go back an listen, yup the whole get up supposedly draws 6 amps. There are some good reviews on the internet. Stuffs expensive though. I've had circuits go ti, um display discontinuity at inapproprate times, wouldn't happen with this stuff. Now to find a dealer in the US. I'm not sure I understand the pricing gloves vs jacket, maybe you should just wrap jackets around your hands. I've emailed them. Scary when hard luggage and new heated gear cost the same. I can dream can't I. Now back to this Labatts thing... Ya know they play the Canadian Anthem at the races here too.

Weird pricing indeed.

...I'm not sure I understand the pricing gloves vs jacket, maybe you should just wrap jackets around your hands.
Their pricing is bizarre. The lower back wrap is $75 and the base model vest is $150. But the vest only provides heat in the lower back area. So what does the extra $75 get you besides "heated pockets"? It's not like I'm going to carry around a bunch of taquitos or something.

MMmmmm....taquitos.

Stuff looks good. I'm definitely gonna-hafta check it out before next fall. 6 amps for the ENTIRE setup is less than your average Widder vest, IIRC.

Of course, you don't need all that when you've one of these:

Yeah, I'm bad. Just picked it up tonite and terrorized the Honduh racer-punks in Joplin.

It's....... subtle...... looks like a V6 'Stang, but sounds exceptional when you step on the gas............

Wow, that's a beautiful car in and an exceptional color. I figured if you were going to go the muscle car route you would have waited for the Challenger. What made you pick the Ford?

NICE NICE NICE!!! Love that car. The first car I ever drove was a Mustang in the same green color. You DID get the green, right??

Yeah, it's the Green. It looks better in person than it does in the pics, and I believe it looks real good in the pics.

Two main reasons for going with the Bullitt, (1) the Challenger was the original choice, but researching it told us that of the ~6400 '08 Challengers, nearly ALL of them are already "Bespoke" cars.

(2) This car came to just over $31k, the Challenger STARTS at $38k - and here's the biggest clincher - word on the street is that the remaining cars will likely be scalped heavily - going price is rumoured in the area of $67k and up. The two Dealers I asked about it, told me there was NO WAY in HELL to get one. So I said "Screw 'Em". I still really like the Challenger, though.

(2b) When The Wife saw the Bullitt on the showroom floor, then looked at the pricetag, it was "How long will it take you to get the down-payment 'in-hand', dear?"

I do know this - the car sounds absolutely awesome - possibly the best-sounding musclecar I've ever owned, and that includes my Roadrunner (that sumbiotch sounded damn good - everybody commented on it). If you've watched the movie (Bullitt), and listened to the cars in it - that's exactly what it sounds like. Throttle response is razor-sharp, and the thing snarls and crackles like a Beast on downshifts.........

We'll probably drive it up to Chicago when we come up to get the PC800 in a week or two. J., I'll give you a shout when we know the date.

FYI EXO Heated Clothing

Our gloves can absolutely connect directly to our StormRider Bodywarmer and the combination pulls 5.2 amps. (Our gloves pull 0.6 each.) We supply, at no extra charge, all require cables and a splinter to allow this set up. The StormRider Controller can also be used with this combination allowing heat level selections of 1-9.

Our Bodywarmer, vest, jacket, gloves and heated back support can all be directly connected to your bike battery and all products (except the StormShield gloves) can also be powered by portable lithium-ion batteries or our accessory socket power cord.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions or would like more information on our products or how they work.

Best regards,

Drew

P.S. If you have a BMW bike, we have just added to our range a BMW style Hella plug that will also support the gloves and Bodywarmer combination.
