When it comes to comfort and warmth when riding, LOOKS take a far back seat. Ya do what it takes to be comfortable.
The warmest my hands have ever been whilst riding was with my Gerbing heated gloves. So warm, they were perspiring. That was while riding my Gold Wing. Come to think of it, that was also with heated grips. But, I wonder how much heat from the grips is lost to the wind.Well here's the deal. If you wear winter gloves the heat from the grips do no good because not only do they protect your hands from the cold they also insulate your hands from the heat. Been my experience heated grips work best with thinner gloves but in cold weather that sucks too. These muffs allow you to wear the thinner non insulated gloves and enjoy the heat.
you can never be too warm. I just picked up rainproof saddle bags that expand out so I can change out of my riding gear and enjoy the spring ride around towns.
