I'm a glove whore. OK, a general gear whore. I have at least a dozen pairs of gloves hanging around, but my current "go to" are:
Olympia Weatherking II Goretex: cow skin; have worn them as low as 6F without heated grips; too warm over ~40F, waterproof, bulky, can't live without these
Held Steve Classic: kangaroo skin; cool to very hot temps; palm sliders, visor wipe, great control feel
Lee Parks Deersports w/ Outlast: deerskin; sorta cool (~40 F) to hot temps; no palm sliders but extra leather patch on the palm, great control feel
Aerostich Competition Ropers: elkskin; these go on when it's super hot; no palm sliders, very basic, visor wipe
I carry waterproof glove covers all year, but I do have some waterproof BMW-branded "Atlantis" Gore-tex X-Trafit (liners won't pull out with your wet hands) gloves I sometimes wear if I'm headed out in heavy rain.
