I use a layered defense. I have the Marrakech Klim jacket as the basis. Incredible jacket with Great ventilation. I bought thicker armor to make it even better. Then when it starts getting cold I layer a heated jacket underneath. Then as the final defense I throw a Klim gortex rain shell over all If it starts to rain or temps drop into the 40s. I’m a sissy when it comes to cold. I live in California and commute every day through the year on a motorcycle. I have ridden in Montana snowy cold on a 5000 mile trip with just those top pieces Last year. The little snow flake was lit up on my dash for two days and I was toasty with that combo and heated gloves.You definitely have the best color bike. 😎
I went with the Klim Kodiak jacket and pants. The Kodiak is kinda form fitting but I’m fairly slender (so far) so I like the fit. Gray and black, looks good with the bike (2019 GT Sport black/silver/red). I got it this winter so I haven’t had a chance to ride with it yet. I will be interested to see how well it vents, but I think that if I end up riding someplace really hot, I might go with a mesh jacket/pants combo. I’m not sure if venting will be enough to keep a Gortex suit cool, but I too am interested to hear about that from other members.
This is my first Klim gear and the quality is really good, would definitely recommend.
Good luck and have fun!
