So finally got her all cleaned up and took the V to work today. Everything was great except my hands were frozen. To be expected as it was 33°f when I left the house. Is there a cheaper alternative for handguards? The barkbusters are nice, but I don't want to spend $150 on wind protection for my hands.

There is a chinese copy of the Acerbis Rally Pro hand guards on e-bay and they are stupid cheap:

I had the Rally Pro and my friend got the Chinese ones, they look identical. You can add the Rally Pro Spoiler to make them taller:

Or you can go with these, that have an integrated turn signal, although these are just for looks as they don't have any metal backing:

Nice thanks.
I like the ones with turn signals, but it say it doesn't fit our bike.. in fact almost every one I found on fleabay says that. Any ideas why that would be?

Keeping warm and dry

If you want to keep your hands warm and dry, rather than having a pretty bike then either Oxford Handlebar Muffs, or Rainoff Overgloves will do the trick (google search will land you on either).

I've used both. They are both good. I now use the overgloves. I can take them off at any time and stow them away. Take up little room. The handlebar muffs have to stay on the bike for the whole ride (unless you've got unlimited storage capacity on the bike).

Both these items are far, far superior to any handlebar brush guard when it comes to cold and wet.
