I lost half a finger in those. Now I wear a custom pair of Helds.

Well damn!!!

 

I had a pair of Helds Phantoms (?) but they didn't break in properly so I gave them away

My Cortech Scarab gloves are *decent* for cool weather riding. Once you get under 40 degrees I think the only realistic option is heated gear. At the minimum, heated gloves or grips (preferably gloves).

Furygan makes  very decent gloves for their price, I have a pair of AFS-18 and they're perfect for spring/summer/autumn.

 

 

 

There's a winter version too but for winter i use military gloves with silk undergloves. That said, i very rarely ride under 50 degres. If i have too, I use cheap heating pads in the glove, between the glove and the underglove. They last a few hours.

Nice! Thanks! Brand seems popular in Europe, but not so much here in the 'States; I had never heard of them.

 

I just bought these:

To get a feel for sizing and fit and finish.

 

If everything checks out, I'll get these for winter, as they look great:

So I caved and bought a Vanson Velociraptor replete with armor, and some Vanson Technical Rider pants...

 

Between this gear and the bike insurance, I have +$1k into the bike this month, phew...

 

 

 

Bought dem Fury 'gan gloves, too, so now just need some boots.

 

Also, washed the ol' girl:

Just saw this and it made my liddle wee wee stand up.  yes it is a photoshop but I would order a white bike and paint it.  Blue bikes are always the fastest ones

I'd rather have a yellow one. So sad they dropped the colour to bring white... Their yellow superbikes and supersports where simply stunning. I would kill for a yellow 749 R

Yellow Ducs are like yellow Ferraris... just perfect

Motorcycle brahs... would I be doing my bike a disservice by getting a cheap chain? I'm thinking of getting a Bikemaster or something. Admittedly I did a piss poor job of maintaining my last one

the choice between a cheap chain with a clip master link or a more expensive one with a rivet type link.  Hmmmm

 

Get a quality chain with a riveted master link.  And since you should redo your rear sprocket when you redo you chain (and your front with every 2 changes), make sure you stay away from aluminum.  Chains eat teeth on those faster than fat kids inhale cupcakes.  Here is a DID X-ring chain and both sprockets for 135 beans.
