Look Ma, warm hands and no electrics

Some borrowed technology from our snowmobile friends. Took a long ride today at 44 degrees and even my pinky stayed warm with my usual gloves.3FD49B2E-1349-4A7F-B86F-D9DC1212DA1B_1570919161111.jpeg

Hippo hands........used to have a set of those when a bike was my main mode of transportation. They work well but do look a bit dorky.

No, this is why I chose these because of the huge openings! Also, the bark busters on the LT model keep everything accessible.

I love handlebar muffs in the cold. Been using them on my bikes for many moons. Dorky but effective. :^)

I'd like to know that as well. I ordered a pair of these, but they did not have quite enough room to fit over my barkbusters.
