cold weather glove recos please

Need some gloves to keep my hands warm on those cooler morning commutes. All I have at the moment is a pair of leather A* SPS gloves which are not insulated. I actually grabbed and held onto the exhaust pipe(near the can) while sitting at stop lights to thaw my throttle hand. I'd like a pair of motorcycle specific gloves but have not seen any at the local shops that would keep my hands warm. Any ideas?
Also, looking for something other than a scarf to keep my neck warm.

head to walmart and pick up some of those cotton gloves like the one you use to have as a kid. something thin enough to fit under your current gloves.

houston doesnt get that cold to invest in winter gloves. i usually use layers of clothes under to keep me warm. i also ride with a bandana like this

I use glove liners under my gloves.
They're inexpensive, work pretty well and aren't as bulky as some winter gloves. As far as keeping your neck warm, either a bandana, a hooded sweatshirt or a bacalava (face mask), all work to varying degrees.
We keep both the liner and bacalavas in stock.

cycle gear should have these. If not, give motoliberty.com a try. They are in Dallas. I just bought my N2 gloves from them works great with all the protection of a race glove. Tour master is the other brand that they carried. I was also looking at their hood and other winter under garment which they have in stock also. GL.

Get these! You will not be sorry. You can put these on under your stock grips. They will keep your hands toasty. I had them on all of my bikes. I rode more in the winter than in the summer it seemed and these work great. On the Suzuki's you have to sand down the groves on the throttle tube but it really isn't that big of a deal. Your hands will thank you.

Patrick,
How thin are the glove liners? My gloves fit...well, like a glove...couldn't help it... but seriously they fit snug so the liners would have to be really thin. I have a pair of snowboard gloves w/ liners and tried those but no way they will fit; just to bulky. Somebody I talked to mentioned wearing latex gloves. Any opinions on that?

Thanks guys and lady

I am telling you...get some heated grips...your hands will thank you and you don't have to have some bulky gloves that makes controlling the bike difficult.

That'll be last option as it is more difficult than putting on glove liners and will only be used a few times a year.

Solracer, that's exactly what I'm looking for, thanks!

Moody, forgot about UA, thanks.

Are you talking about the chemical warmers that heat up when exposed to
O2?
I like those. I'll stick em in my boots, pockets, and palms of my gloves. They warm up nice.
