The Gerbings Lighted On/Off Switch acts as a budget alternative to a temp-controller (for Gerbing's products).

I bought this as a backup to the Powerlet remote controller. Tried it and works great. Well worth the investment especially when the batteries go out on your controller on chilly 36 deg.

After scouting a number of websites and reviewing numerous types of riding boots, I selected this Dainese model.
The selection is based, in part, on functional aspects, including the lacing system, boot height, and style.
I feel I can walk around with these since many other types of riding shoes are clunky off the bike.
They were a bit stiff out of the box, but I wore them everywhere over an entire weekend for the brake-in period.
Initially, the lacing system causes you to over thighten the shoe, but that is something that is readily fixed with trial and error.
The fit was fine for me (US 8.5) and I did not need to buy a size up, like some buyers have noted.
In cold weather, I use socks used for skiing and snow boarding, as these socks have internal pading (here meaning insulation) and this works well.
