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.

Re: riding below 40 degrees

I've ridden in the 20's before going to work in the morning. Got two baraclavas on...thermal, tshirt, thermal, hoodie, leather jacket. That makes my body decently warm, well barely, but only have the Knox Handroid for gloves. Hands are frozen and numb just after 5 min of riding. And it takes me 25 min to get to work.

Will have to try the latex glove thing.
