What gloves, if any, do you use to ride. I have been looking at Thor brand motocross gloves but not sure if they will be comfortable. Thanks!
Motorcycle gloves are different - they are cut to be optimally comfortable with your fingers closed around the handlebar grips. This is most critical with the heavier cold weather gloves. Yes, you could do the Walmart thing, but it won't be as good.wasions said:Cold weather I wear standard ski gloves. I already have those around anyway. Warm/hot weather it's either no gloves, or if I'm going the distance, bicycle (padded palms, mesh back) gloves. Like ten bucks at Wal-Mart. I'm cheap. :roll:
It's only money... You'll make more... (One of my dealer's favorite sayings.) But seriously, try on a few pair, and buy the ones you like best. Over time, you'll be happy you did!casek said:Thank you to all of you that replied. I am going shopping this weekend to find the perfect pair for me. Who knew there were so many options? :shock:
I'll buy what you say for winter-weight gloves, but I doubt that they have anything for summer riding. And they couldn't compete for warmth with the electrically heated winter riding gloves I wear. Eliminating the electrically heated category, I'd guess they are probably equivalent in warmth to winter motorcycle gloves.wasions said:Actually, Paul, ski gloves are cut very similarly to m/c gloves. The fingers are already curved to grab the poles, reinforced palms, etc., etc. And there's a lot more choices available with ski gloves.

This is probably a stupid newbie question, but do you have to keep the glove box door open when using the 12v?
For the record, I always wear gloves when riding: half-fingered padded leather if it's about 75, full-finger leather with perforations if below that.
