When I left today, it was 38. The high was 42. I layered up and everything was toasty but the hands. I had the HD Windex/Thermaloft gloves and glove liners, but my hands were just about numb after 50 miles. Is there anything short of heated grips or gloves that'll keep the hands warm. I have ski gloves. I thought about trying them or snowmobile gloves.

Ha Ha, smart ass. (IMG:http://www.harleyshoptalk.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) Windex is one of those high tech windproof membranes kinda like GoreTex. It might be windproof, but it sure as hell ain't coldproof.

Est... I have a pair of gloves similar to these below... and they work pretty well... but with those temps, even with these on after 50+ miles, without much movement in my fingers, they get cold... I find if I move them around a bit it helps but not by much... I also have neated grips, which does make a difference... but they only warm one side of your hand... while the wind (gloves or no gloves) eventually chills the other side. Bottom line, My next purchase is heated gear for sure...

All that said, I do like these gloves, they do help alot, and I get a lot of use out of them...

Don't rule out heated gloves. I ride with Gerbings jacket liner and gloves. They're good for riding in the 20's. The big difference is comfort and safety, IMHO.

Bomaaahhh, I'm sure it does. I've never ridden the Deluxe in that kind of weather, so I can't really give you a good comparison.

Max, with the layers, I'm okay with the body core temp. The heated gloves kind of intrigue me. How do they connect to the bike. I've always speculated that you were kind of handcuffed to the bike. (IMG:http://www.harleyshoptalk.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/woot.gif)

I don't own heated gloves "YET" (Hoping Santa is good to me) ...but I have read about them and seen folks using them... there is a a wire that connects up to the battery... you wear a "Y" cable under your jacket which runs down your arms and connects to both gloves... and then you connect up to the wire from your battery... usually out the side of your jacket... seems like an easy plug-in set up to me... Well worth the extra few minutes of preparation for the extra warmth. (IMG:http://www.harleyshoptalk.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/thumb.gif)

The liner is the key piece. The gloves attach to the respective sleeves and you have a thermostat to control the heat. I have no idea how you'd hook up the gloves without the liner. There's probably a pigtail that feeds down your jacket sleeves. They offer a smaller glove now that is less bulky than the one I have. Nevertheless, I love the whole set up. I'll sometimes ride with the liner and a leather jacket over a long sleeve cotton shirt in the 30's and be very comfy.

I believe they were the only gloves available at the time. Not sure of the name. I bought them two year ago.

I've tried numerous gloves for the cold, only the heated (electric) work for me. Currently using the Gerbings g3 which I plug into an a small on/off switch sold by gerbing.

Thanks Max, I was looking at those... Looks like Gerbing does a nice a nice job measuring you up for the heated gear... I bet fitment is important...

This is the guy I delt with. He did the fitting and then we rolled the bike into his garage and set up the wiring. He's the biggest dealer in the US and a great guy.

I have the G3. Purchased from a BMW dealership in New Jersey. Had ordered by phone and received the gloves only to find out that they were actually two sizes bigger than what was printed on the packaging label. Took a ride to the dealership and they sized and replaced them on the spot.

The gloves come with a Batter harness and the pigtail contraption you guys spoke of. I plug mine into a heated jacket that then plugs into the end of the battery harness that's sticking out from under my seat. I have the jacket wired to a thermostat that I keep in the inside chest pocket. You can also buy a kit and hardwire a thermostat to your handlebars.

With the thing set at the 3/4 setting on the dial I had beads of sweat running down my back while doing 65 in 38 degree temps. I pulled over, lowered the zipper, pulled out the stat and set it for a lower setting (about halfway on the dial). This stuff really works. So why am I not using it to commute to work when it's "Only" 35 degrees outside? I'm a big pussy..... nuff' said..... (IMG:http://www.harleyshoptalk.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/bike.gif)

It got you to your destination that fateful night. BTW, it was toasty out there. Short but sweet. Now off to an indoor track meet. My son is running in the 4X800 meter and 800 meter open. He's trying to break 2 mins. My daughters is the manager of the team, taking times etc.
