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

    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:

    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.
