    Wow. You need help more desperately than I realized.

    I do understand though (not the wanting a motorcycle - the not wanting another bike). After you get about 15 of them (not all mine btw) spread between the basement and the shed, it can drive most folks to say "enough is enough".

    You know, I really hate the internet and texting for the simple fact that it is difficult to percieve inflection. I can't tell if you are being wonderfully condesending or just making pithy statements.

    Something tells me however, that it is the former and not the later.

    But what the hell do I know. I ride a $1000.00 motorcycle and don't have no fancy coloured stars beside my name. I must be doing something wrong.

    I'm not sure what's so condescending about the simple observation that there is a staggering amount of unbridled stupidity on BF. I do my best to contribute, and what better way than another springtime motorcycle thread in Foo? I can't wait to get the new Bridgestones on my bike. Then I can really carve it up.

    I've got an electric jacket liner (Gerbings) and heated grips, but I wasn't able to find electric gloves small enough for my hands. The grips are good but my fingers still freeze.

    I'll never forget the first time I rode my ST with temps below 45ºF. I had these alleged 'winter' m/c gloves on. I learned a couple of things:

    • Motorcycle specific gloves tend to be really lame, unless they are electric. I do have the Gerbing gloves, they work fine, but too many wires.

    • Now I use my ski gloves, the same ones I cycle with in temps down to 10ºF. They actually work.

    • If you ride in temps below 45ºF, you deserve what you friggin get.

    I'm good down to about high 40's, below that it gets harder. But I suppose if you want to ride, you'll ride, just like me and my bicycle. Just watch that black ice. I've dumped my 17 lb racing bike on it. I wouldn't want to put the 700 lb ST down. That would suck.

    I now live in the twisties in NorCal, in the wintertime it gets down to about 30F up in the hills. I take it really careful when it's icy out.

    Temps easily vary by 30 degrees in the microclimates around here. My cyclocomputer shows the outside temp, would be nice if the moto did as well, makes it easier to predict ice rather than discovering it as you go over it.

    I'm sure the ski gloves are great for warmth; how are they for protection? I probably would have an easier time finding ski gloves that fit.

    I rode year 'round in PA, and a little in Vermont and I found at low temps,
    20's etc, the biggest problem was carb icing. Now all bikes are Fi, but back
    in the old daze up to about '04, your bike would run dangerously bad.
    For cold weather carbies, always remember your tin foil

    Yup, my previous bike had carbs, but the FI certainly makes things easier.

    I always layered, heavy he-man, ruff tuff Harley dood leather gauntlet followed
    by various layers of smaller glovage. One thing that really helped were latex
    surgical gloves under all the layers. Just air your paws out at each coffee stop

    I rode for about an hour and a half in temps of 45 and below. Once the sun set, I was pretty freakin' miserable.

    I have had good luck with ski gloves as well. But both my maxi-scooter and the Suzuki dual-sport have handguards, so that cuts the wind chill a lot.

    You talking about women or motorcycles here? Doesn't matter, your words apply to both.

    I alternate between riding by bicycle and motorcycle to work ('zuki Bandit 1250). I confuse the heck out of my coworkers with the array of different riding gear I show up with.

    Patentcad, you are a wuss, I have no problem at all riding year round in without all that fancy heated gloves, etc.

    Sheesh, you need to harden up.
