    just bought a pair of winter riding gloves, first winter gloves I’ve had in years, from the Triumph dealer in Birmingham.

    Grey, two-tone nylon, fleece liner. Triumph logo and reinforced knuckles. Took them for a gallop tonight, they seem quite warm and fit well.

    Good buy, on short acquaintance

    Personally I prefer heated grips and handlebar muffs, no connecting wires to forget about. These days I deal with it by just not riding when it’s too cold.

    Silk inner gloves with good quality waterproof winter gloves will keep your hands warm and dry for 30-40 mile rides in cold weather.
    Distances above that you may want to look at muffs or the heated grips.
    Can't beat the car when it gets too cold and icy.

    I've got a pair of Hein Gerick "Spocks" (Zoidbergs) and quite like them they have separate sections so your fingers don't actually touch :)

    I find summer gloves are ok for me in winter as I like to feel the switchers as winter gloves are too thick for me.

    I use Rukka winter gloves and have heated grips on my bikes. The gloves are really good and with the grips I don't have any problems when riding in cooler weather.

    I use Rukka winter gloves, however I've been told you are not supposed to use heated grips with anything Goretex as it makes the gortex not work! I still do though!

    It’s true, heat creates the wicking so when the warmth is coming from inside the moisture moves out but when it the heat comes from outside the moisture moved in, this had been remedied with gloves that have gore tex “inner lining “ or second skin that your hand can fit into or can lay upon the top of your hand when using heated grips.

    I got given a nearly new pair of RST Raptor 11 gloves a few weeks back, they are probably the best winter gloves I've had, I'm finding I'm using Rhonda far more in cold wet conditions and these seem to be standing up well!

    Just found this on eBay to complete my motorcycling attire, only £225 as well!

    Double 'D' ring fastening, gold fish bowl and 1960's patina, I found it while looking for an AGV Compact flip front, 1 of which I eventually bought!
    The pictured one cant be any worse than the Uber crap I bought a few weeks ago that will be the subject of some pretty plants next summer!
    Wish I hadn't sold my last AGV Compact a few weeks back, I really loved it!

    I've had some luck this last couple of weeks with gloves, first the RST Raptors the other week, now another neighbour has given me a nearly new pair Alpinestars GP Tech, they are the most expencive gloves I've ever had, bought or given, really a summer glove I think as they have air vents, really well made though!
    All this on a Honda 110, although they will last for ages well into my next bigger bike I think.;)

    Hi, when it cools down like yesterday I wear a pair of Widder Lectroheat gloves I bought many years ago, powered from the battery via a 10 amp fuse.Apart from replacing the original connections with Extraflex wire and concentric plug and sockets the gloves themselves still work well, I even have to turn them off in town when they get too hot.

    I bought 2 Widder heated bodywarmers ( 1 with and 1 without the collar ) some years ago, pity they stopped making stuff and shut up shop, good quality gear
