In my experience if air is getting in the outer glove then latex gloves don't keep your hands from getting cold.

If you keep you trunk warm, your hands tend to stay warm better. Human body will restrict blood flow to the extremities to preserve body heat to the vital organs. No amount of gloves will help if you are just plain cold. Protect your torso, legs and head first, before you address the hands.

Hasn't been cold yet.
Last year was cold.

I wore a pair of loose pants today and when I got off the bike, my nads felt like they froze to my legs. That was rather invigorating.

Pulled into the bus lane downtown to turn and got three tickets. Riding in the bus lane (even to turn....the time you are allowed in it to turn is at the douchefuck cop's DISCRETION), dirt/debris on license plate (a grease mark on one letter, and failure to provide financial responsibility (apparently me showing him my insurance by logging into progressive and showing him my ID and summary card is t good enough....)

It was a moto cop and he was off bike and literally jumped out in the street and flagged three of us over. Normall I wouldn't stop but since he was moto I did. I regret stopping though bc he wasn't on one of those beast. 4cyl bikes, he was on a Hardley. Ain't no catching a 400lb tuned and geared 750.....

regrettable of me

^ motorola = faster then your Z750, heck his hardley may be as quick as your Z

where is your license plate mounted?

what if your phone is dead? then you can't prove 'proof of ins.' ......duh!

stupid is stupid.

sounds like 2 of your 3 are fix-it tickets anyways.

Yikes!
I use the bus lane all the time!

What street was he on?

Technically, you're supposed to only use the lane at the last possible safe moment.
Personally, I like to be in the turn lane a block ahead of time.
That's the last possible safe moment to me.
