> 3. What do people recommend for heated vests? (yep, talking about too
my wife and i have Widder vests, that have served us reliably for 5 years.
i've heard the riderwearhouse unobtanium vest is good too. there's a new
vest design from http://www.gr8designs.com/ that's supposed to be good too.
no wires, maybe more reliable.

i've probably ridden about 10000 miles with my GPS-III custom mounted to
the top of my tankbag. it's great. the III+ would allow me to download
more detailed maps, but i don't think it will accept enough at one shot
to be _really_ useful -- it doesn't have enough memory. but i find the
basemap (the same in the III and III+) to be very adequate for general
navigation. it has enough main roads and landmarks that between it and
a paper map you can tell pretty much where you are, and which way to
turn at that unexpected intersection in the middle of nowhere. i power
mine directly from the bike.

a GPS is in no way a replacement for a paper map. you need both. (everyone
i've talked to agrees.) besides, there are other things to put in the
map pocket -- route sheets, directions, etc.
