Technology / Motorcycle / Electrics: Many motorcyclists ride in all kinds of weather conditions. Thus, riding is not just for fair weather. Some motorcyclists ride when it gets cold and sometimes regular apparel just isn't enough to keep warm. That's when riders use electric apparel referred to as Electrics. Most start with electric vests, then electric gloves and then electric pants or suits. Some even go for electric socks. These electric apparel contain heating elements and are usually controlled by thermostats connected to the motorcycle's battery.
