I rode a couple of miles this morning, then thought, "Man, my hands are cold!" So I stopped and put on a pair of my fancy yellow rubberized farmer gloves.

They match my scooter, but maybe I should get a real pair of motorcycle gloves. Anyone have suggestions?

Elkskin ropers. I've wanted a pair of those for awhile. I had a cheap pair of icon gloves which had neat rubberized bits on the fingertips and mean looking venting on the knuckles- but I've finally worn through them after two seasons.

It's the ropers or these:

I'll second the ropers. Not the most fashionable gloves out there (although you can get them in black) but the most unbelievably comfortable gloves I've ever owned, AND durable--I had over 60,000 miles on my first pair until I lost one. I'll wear them in temps down to almost freezing, at which point I switch to a more gauntletted glove.
Just my 2 cents.

The ropers look good and aren't terribly expensive (as long as I keep track of them). I might have to order a pair.

Thanks

You'd have gotten 10% off and no shipping charges if you'd have picked them up while you were up north!

Just to rub a little salt in there. Sorry.

We were hoping to stop, but Aerostich was only open 8-4pm on Saturdays, not on Sundays. Maybe I'll have to replace my dollar store sunglasses that my wife hates also.

I got the Joe Rocket "Highside" gloves before the Duluth Run, and they worked out really well. They provide reasonable protection from the cold and lots of protection in case I do their namesake. And for $50, they're not too expensive...

Still, wearing gloves called "highside" does rather seem to be tempting fate a little much...
