Took the bike out for a quick blast and holy shit was it cold... well at least on my hands i have only thin gloves for summer and the wind goes right through those babies. While i was there i passed by the secretary of state on Mannheim rd and north ave and i noticed they put up the lines for the motorcycle license for those that are looking for a close place with shorter lines than in the city :)

I was out on Sunday for an hour around dusk and it was a little chilly. But the only thing too cold was my neck. I keep forgetting to get one of those neck warmers. :D

I'll tell ya what My new car has a heated steering wheel. I am now seriously thinking about getting some heated grips for the bike, it's cool as hell when your hands are almost instantly warm.

Does anyone have any suggestions on good winter riding gloves? I put on a little over 200 miles on Saturday, and the only thing that was bothering me was my hands. Links or dealers would help too. Thanks,

Lance

Your hands and feet get cold first because your body cuts off blood flow to them to keep the warm blood in your torso. Wear enough clothes to keep your chest cavity warm and your hands won't get cold. It was 37deg. when I left for work this morning and I wasn't cold. But I could barely bend my arms enough to buckle my helmet.:laughing

Actually my feet were ok i had boots on but it was mostly my hands and depending on where the wind was going i would get a really cold wind sneaking in between the helmet and the neck od the jacket.

My hands were OK - and I had an extra sweatshirt on, so my upper body was OK, too. But the legs get cold! Gotta break out the long underwear!
