Have never tried the heated grips on the GT but I do know about heated shins here in FL. Get yourself some fuel dongles from rottweiler. Best 50 bucks spent cuz not only does it lower overall oil/engine temps, thereby your shin too, it makes the engine much more tractable at lower RPM without any trade-offs at all ... even get better gas mileage.

I recently did a decat pipe for that very reason; the catbox gets hotter than two rats humpin in a wool sock in stop-and-go summer traffic.

I agree with the fuel dongles. I live in FL as well. I spent the money to get the cat off the bike, and that was the biggest contributor to getting rid of the heat. Otherwise, I could not ride the bike above 85 degree weather.
