Hello there,

Can anyone recommend some really warm and waterproof gloves to keep me digits warm for the winter?

Looking at about 40 quid budget...

Or should I go for some heated grips? Again if so which ones? Seen some good reviews of Roxter grips...

Even 'Thinsulate' lined gloves feel cold after so long.

Best bet is get in shops and try different ones for fit etc., then see what spec they are - thinsulate.goretex etc.

Heated grip keep palms warm, best bet though is a set of handlebar muffs, can even use summer gloves with these, but bike looks like deputy dawg!!

These are designed for motorcycle use, but they need a 12v supply ....

Because the heating elements are at the back of the fingers the heat is spread where it is needed, unlike heated grips which leave the back of the hand unheated.

I know they are outside your budget but I have probably spent more than this on different gloves trying to find the 'perfect' pair.

ParaPanFan: Have you got a set of them gloves, and if you have are they as good as they look? Also am I right in thinking you have a Pan? If so is it a 11 or a 13??

BikerManDan: Heated grips I think should be ok on your ybr assuming you don't have them on when the engine isn't running.. essentially they are an electric heating element indside a rubber grip with a 'volume' control type thingy. Low to high.

I'm sure I'll be corrected if I'm wrong :shock:
