Yeah … . That might be a problem. I'm already not allowed to die until the government can find a safe place to bury my liver. With limited kidney function too …

I wear Sidici heated gloves in the AM plugged into my heated HD jacket under a leather shirt, keeps my hands toasty on those cold morning rides, helps with circulation as I have arthritis...in the afternoon I go gloveless and sometimes I wear thin leather gloves...

Home Depot $20 deerskin gloves for Spring through Autumn and some thinsulate lined deerskin gauntlets in Winter (I picked them up at a leather shop/outlet in Denver).

Back in the 70's & 80's I had a pair of unlined green welding gloves I wore when it was cold. Lately my dear wife (who abhors motorcycles) bought me a pair of really nice gauntlet-style thinsulate lined deerskin motorcycle gloves as a gift. The rest of the time I wear a well worn pair of tan, light leather, wrist length gloves. Then one day while browsing hipster motorcycle sites I ran across this and realized I had been a trend setter without knowing it.
