I lost half a finger in those. Now I wear a custom pair of Helds.
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.
Got this out of the mothballs for a nice ride today.
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:
Tonight's ride home.
...LOL... Drippin' Wet will make these for folks... Just send them a shot of you...
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.
