I need some "winter" gloves.

Pretty much when it is cold I throw on a pair of flannel Pj's from walmart and tuck them into my socks and then pants over that..

a balaclava from cycle gear to protect my neck from the cold.

0000 Comfort In Action ST   Wind Plus Black

my jacket with the liner tossed in.

and a helmet.


If it is colder than 40 outside.... then i just tough it out since I don't ride much further than 15 mins either way during the winter.

I did.. was cold.. yesterday I rode wearing dress pants for work and a jumper under my perf leather jacket. Was freaking freezing. Today thicker pants and a hoody and it was OK. My hands get frozen solid tho, gonna get some thermal glove liners and call it a day. My commute is about 10-15 minutes depending how fast I go on the highway.

edit - the helmet skirt thing that came with my helmet is a godsend. Keeps the cold air from getting into the helmet. Going to put a scarf on too I think for my neck for tomorrow.

So how much does motorcycle-superstore pay you to model their gear?

Did you get up an hour early to get dressed?

You can use your helmet to block the wind
