Wells Lamont cowhide ropers with the ball tape closure in the summer, and a pair of BMW Allrounders when it's raining and/or cold.

Tuff Mate 1301 Cutting Horse gloves. Was riding out near Lancaster PA and must have left my HD gloves somewhere. First mom and pop hardware store I found had these. Been my go to glove ever since. Always been a bit of a poser, so now I pose as a cowboy....

If it's cold, I wear some snowmobiling gloves from Cabela's, but I really don't do much cold weather riding any more.

The "little cutie" from next door showed up with a BF on a FXR... jumped off & waved.
Things I noticed noticed were she jumped off before the bike had stopped and she had no gloves on.

Being the "old man next door" I enjoyed the view, said nada. Actually her actions reeked of bad riding gear and lack of communication with the driver.
