Breaking in gloves

I've been riding with my Alpinestars SPS gloves for about 3 weeks straight, everyday and they are still pretty stiff if you ask me. The guy at cycle gear said that there was a way of breaking them in quicker but I forgot what he said on my way home that day.

So, besides just wearing them, is there anyway I could break them in a bit quicker?

Saddle oil, Mink oil, baseball glove oil, leather conditioner, get them wet, throw them in the dryer, wear them 24/7... etc.

This will de-magnatize the ground magnet for a little while.

Oh, and what Moody said to break them in.
:laughing6

That is the same thing I do as soon as I get my gear out of the bag at the track.

1. put on gloves
2. ride to the zoo
3. find a grizzly bear and give him a hand job

after he eats you and the gloves pass through his digestive system, they should be juuuuuust right.

Walk around and smack people in the face with them. This will also break the ground magnet and possible enter you in a duelling contest.
