    Go to Panorama Plaza, Mall Road Lahore for Leather Jacket and gloves.
    You can get a Good leather jacket ranging from Rs. 4K to k and gloves for Rs. 1K to 2K.
    Also wear a good quality sweater under your jacket and get a Muffler also.
    I hope this will help you alot

    +1 to leather jacket and gloves. Stylish and also gives warm feelings. A parachute jacket is even better especially when cold waves are blowing..

    Leather Jackets with Fleece shirt or inner would keep you warm and get good quality gloves. Keep your bike in your room in winters so in early morning it would get start on a single kick without any trouble.
    Dream is not that which you see while sleeping it is something that does not let you sleep.

    If it rains and my leather jacket gets wet, will it still give protection against cold, is there any leather jacket which is resistant to water as well. Thanks in advance.

    I dont have enough space in room, it will be parked in garage. In winters should i use choke (full or Half) to start the bike?

    Leather jackets can be inconvenient as they are expensive and they cant be folded so u hav to wear them around...
    Id suggest go 4 a good quality parachute material jacket, saves u from rain too in case...
    plus they are cheap.. attach a side bag to ur bag and upon reaching destination u cn fold the jacket and put it in bag, thats what i used to do... side bags come handy

    I put a long rain coat + hair brush in it these days and in winter it gets gloves too.
    I lock its double zip with a small lock. Its a cheap and practical solution, rest is ur preference.! cheers

    Helmet is a MUST! v.imp.. and saves u from rain, storm, cold etc

    Leather Gloves are important.

    A usual parachute jacket can also work just fine. Leather jackets are expensive anyway. The last one I thought, was not even pure leather and costed me >5k. (2 years ago) ... Would love to have a REAL leather jacket btw.

    Other than that, there is Cold Start of the bike. ALWAYS give CHOKE in winters before starting up the bike.

    Thats it. Thats all i do.

    If anyone thinks it needs an addition, please enlighten me with his views

    Will the Helmet fit on when wearing a monkey cap? if there are any better helmets which can keep warm in winters, but i guess its not.

    A good helmet would be warm enough... u wont need cap or something, eye glasses can be added if ur eyes get irritated from cold wind.
    Or a muffler around ur neck and nose nothing to worry abt.
