Question about gloves

I have back problems and it translates down to my hands wich in turn fall asleep real easy so my question is I have learned that if I don't wear gloves it takes longer for my hands to fall asleep but I don't want road rash so any ideas on some comfy but efective gloves or maybe glove grip combo

maybe the gloves you were wearing were too tight and cutting off circulation to your hands. That's all i can really think of, but i wrecked once and took all the skin off my knuckles so i deff recommend wearing them GL

My guess was maybe move your fingers more when you ride to get the circulation going?
That's what I do when my hands get numb and/or cold

get some grips and gloves with padding at the base of the palm to limit vibration

I'd imagine those foam grips would help
Also, try weighted barends to help reduce the vibrations.

The bars do have so vibes in them more than I would like
The foam grips are what I was thinking but I need gloves as well I'm rocking some mechanic gloves right now and I don't like them

When that happens my gloves are usually to tight in the fingers and I will pull them off just a bit so it makes it a bit looser. I'd be interested to know where to get these padded grips from.

2 things........
First off, if you ride quite a bit, make the $100 investment for some good gloves. The extra thickness in the leather and the additional pading you find in some of the better gloves will greatly help with the vibrations and whatnot.
Secondly, (I used to have a big problem doing this) relax your hands. Don't have a death grip on the throttle. In the immortal words of .38 Special, "Just hold on loosely, but don't let go. If you cling to tightly, you're gonna lose control"

Fill the bars with 00 buckshot. This will solve all of you vibration problems. But also try holding teh grips lighter.

In addition to the above comments you may want to look at these:

I tried them on when they had a booth at the Lone Star Rally in Galveston. Really soft leather and the idea seemed sound.
