Thanks for The Welcomes!

Great to hear from other members welcoming me to the form.
With only 180 miles on my Versys and warm weather in Michigan quickly disappearing, I haven't rode enough hours to truly know my bike well (other than I needed storage).
One area I'm also seeking knowledge in is "Gloves". It seams to me that gloves that do a good job keeping the hands warm when it's cold, stain them black (or the color their dyed) when they get soaked. My latest trail on that note is to use Diver Gloves from the scuba shop for when it raining. I found they felt very comfortable (Temperature) when soaked (plus no staining) but caused a bit of hand fatigue do to their having a molded shape. Has any one else tried these gloves? They also have a great wet grip. But boy, my hands get tired quickly.

I don't believe that diver gloves will offer any protection in a "get-off"....
