Along with a few layers, I will be prepared for the ride to work tomorrow morning.

I didnt even see the wiper blade on the finger till I got home and then was like

Good timing... I'm in the market for a pair of warm riding gloves. Let us know how they work out.

I wear normal winter gloves, but buy them way too big, so that they fit over my icon street gloves. If I wreck, the winter gloves will disintegrate, but the Icons will still be there to protect me. For really cold days, I wear those 99 cent stretch gloves under both.

I remember the first pair of gloves I ever bought... I was in dallas and it snowed the day before and I said " THIS COLD I want the warmest gloves I can buy!" Then.. I precoded to kill it at every light and intersection because the gloves were like ski gloves they were so thick I wasnt used to it and I couldnt move my fingers very well.. lol fun times.

Oh I am sure when i have to finally leave in a few hours that it will take a bit of learnin'. But oh well, it is going to be cold and I think I can adjust quickly. besides there isnt many lights or stop signs on my route to work.

and once it gets back to texas weather this weekend I will go back to my riding gloves

I just pennied up for some Gerbing G3 electric gloves for cold riding. They are pretty thin for winter gloves and still have good bar feel. They get plenty hot....

I haven't got to use them heated up yet. I wore then turned off down into the upper 40s and they were fine. Expensive but if your fingers freeze off when it's in the 40s like mine do, they're worth it.

I have battery powered gloves that are like liners, I use those, ruber gloves then my winter gloves. It's good down to +/- 35ish*F at 80ish MPH.

I'm more cold blooded then the average Joe so your milage may vary.

I haven't bought plug in electric gloves because my scoot is known to
have a weak generator so I'm not taxing it with gloves.

I used to use these for snow skiing. Just throw one in each glove (I put them on my palms) and your hands will be quite warm.

Let us know how they work!

I've been tossing around the idea of MotoX style handguards on my naked Z1000. When I ride Dad's KLR650 the handguards really cut down on the wind by quite a bit, I'd like to have them on my ride.

Not to mention, they look straight hooligan IMHO!

Yeah, these work great. I used to also throw one in each boot. The thing is though... they would keep my palms nice and toasty but my fingers would be frozen through.

Gloves worked very well, shifting was KINDA harder than usual, but I have thought of taking some of the insulation out of the palms to help with that.

but overall for ten bucks my hands were warm as . The ride to work this morning was toasty since I was comfortable in my cocoon.

You use the clutch to shift?
