I put grip heaters on my Concours a few years ago, nice difference on the cold mornings. A year or so later I got Gerbing gloves. BIG difference on the cold mornings. All over warmth; palms, backs of hands, fingers, ahhhhhh...
I haven't put grip heaters on my V-Strom, though I may still. There are some mornings when it's not quite cold enough to use the heated gear, but the grip heaters are perfect for taking the edge off. You can certainly install them for a lot less money than you can get decent heated gloves, and it's not a big job to do. Might just go ahead and give that a shot first to see if they will be sufficient for your needs.
Ride every day, it's good for you.
