Re: riding below 40 degrees
heated gloves seems like the only solution....sounds weird but one thing that i found out that helps is putting lotion on your hands a few minutes before you head out..rode out in the cold(about 35) and when i got done with my commute my hands were cracked and bloody cus of the cold(gp tech do not keep you hands warm lol) put lotion on before my next ride and it didnt happen..hands got a little cold but nothing bad like before...idk maybe this just works for me
i have heated gloves now so f you winter
Winter riding is all about keeping your hands warm when you ride a sportbike. Jackets, layers and tucking behind the windscreen all helps with your core. Sort of the same with your feet (except the windscreen part). But your hands are vital for control of the bike. They're also the most exposed. I can deal with any part of me being cold. But cold hands ruin a ride and make it impossible when the temps are below 40.
