In the UK I have worn a long sleeved Gerbing vest (under Gortex jackets), takes the chill off, combine that with heated seat and grips and your most the way there. I would wear leggings if I were travelling for hours (and owned some). Gerbing gloves were great quality, but I had a couple of element failures (nothing worse than one cold glove) The K should easily support the amperage, though a number of reports of hunting when the bike is stationary in part due to the pulsations of the controller, and there were some reports of hill assistance dropping out, but not conclusively related.I've been out in -6C (21F)
