I got my scooter the beginning of march this year. In Texas it is still chilly that time of year. I tried several things like layers, thermals... This year i think i may try a pair of dickies or Carhartt insulated coveralls. The Dickies are around $70 or so the looked a little better in style too. Ultimatley though it's about staying warm not looking good. One thing about coveralls is that you can slip in and out of them and keep your regular clothes on that's kinda why i'm leaning this way. Hopefully this will help you out.

Any motorcycle dealer will have plenty of gear, not to mention online retailers like http://www.newenough.com, http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com, http://www.motorcyclecloseouts.com, http://www.revzilla.com, and http://www.cyclegear.com.

With the right gear, the only thing that need stop you is snow and ice.

Fieldsheer Highland II (you can get them for $150 still) or it's successor the Cyclone. Excellent in cold weather. I did a pretty extensive review of my Highland II here. One thing i love about wearing the Highland II is that I never need to check if it's going to rain. If it does, it does, and I just don't care because I stay warm and dry. :) Getting caught in the rain is a common issue for me so this is a big deal.

Also, it's got CE rated armor everywhere. Only downside is that it sucks in hot weather even without the liner, but for $150 you simply can't beat it.
