Been trying to find a way to keep my hands from freezing without buying heated gloves, and I came across these:

I like the Lexan version better, but it requires a little more work.

Personally never saw tape that strong. I guess if it does not move from the garage you are OK. I liked the lexan DIY. May have to try that one.

Buy the gloves... I may pick up some tomorrow at Honda of Houston. Brush guards or cut up trash cans won't help much. I were ski gloves and have full brush guards and my hands still get cold.

In fact I'm going to look at full heated gear for the two months of cold weather a year with have! LOL

Tried of being cold and would like to ride and not worry about being cold.
