so i rode yesterday in the rain and cold...42 degress...up and down 288 and 95 to col hts from the west end then back up 95 to 150..no biggie, right? like a 1 1/2 hour trip...but when i got home i couldn't open my hands! so today i got some nice new teknics! hopefully they do the trick, the dirtbike gloves didn't cut it and the fingerless summer gloves have been put away for weeks. they were $60, so maybe too much but then again i didn't have to wait for shipping!

Yeah, they were spreading the salt on the road in front of my house this morning too. Are they supposed to do that when its warm, sunny, and not a cloud in the sky?????

Your dirtbike and fingerless gloves should be THROWN OUT!!! That $60 could of got you some Teknic Chicane leather riding gloves. ($45 actually) Those gloves would be 10 times better then fingerless.

Obviously, you've never crashed? I can't see how anyone can ride with cheap ass fingerless gloves or even worse, no gloves at all. You go down, what's the first thing you're gonna do? You're going to try and brace your fall with your hands and you won't have any figertips left. :fact

Think about it! :yesnod

Tour Master makes good cold weather gloves and they are pretty cheap from newenough.com, I think I paid 27 dollars for mine(I think), and its SO worth it, ill never ride in winter without them again. I crashed tested them last year too, and they held up well.
