I HAVE to get new gloves
« on: October 24, 2008, 04:07:25 pm »
39 degrees on the ride in...I've been in the office for over an hour and my fingers are still like ice!

I am just not ready to put the bike up for the winter...time to hit the Leather shop and grab a new pair of gloves :D

I HATE winter riding !!

i HATE winter riding !!

I HATE winter riding !!


Do you see how I feel about that? I don't think it's enjoyable at all. I HATE being cold !!

Having said that, I know some guy's who dig riding in the cold and have goten those heated grips and they like them. You may want to explore that option.

A good set of gloves has worked for me, and my dad loves winter riding and loves his heated hand grips.

I don't know if I could stomach putting heated grips on a Harley...just seems like such a RUB thing to do.

My pops has that Garmin set up with a vest & gloves that plug into the bike and heat up. 

I think I'll just grab another set of gloves for now and see how much longer I can hold on :)

I'm so close to 3k on the odo...I just can't put him away yet :D
