    Keeping feet warm in cool/cold weather

    It's cooling down now. Rode to the mountains this morning. First time I felt my toes get cool.

    What do you guys do to keep your feet warm when it's cold?

    Owning a boxer twin helps a lot.

    BMW used to offer battery-powered foot warmers to put in your boots. Haven't checked lately.

    I don't feel the heat but my feet never get uncomfortable when riding my '87 K100RT in the cold weather.

    I've been using them for several years. Love them! I normally run them on position 2 of 4 and my feet feel neither hot or cold.
