I fitted some Bagster muffs to mine but modified them to fit better than suggested. Muffs work well but are awkward.

Givi Universal ones; I hate them but they are really very good.
I've found the trick is to have them loosely connected so they flap around when I haven't got my hands in them.

Too tight and I can't reach the switches and they press on the brake-levers at speed so illuminating the brake-lights.

Muffs? Maybe it's a language thing, but how do you keep her from falling off, and doesn't she block the view through the windscreen?

Over here, most gals nowadays start trimming or shaving their muffs almost as soon as they can grow them.

Shocked affraid

Embarrassing enough to be ridin a scooter over here. These "muffs" would give someone a good reason to pull me over and slap me silly. I wouldnt fight back cause id deserve it.

I'm not and never have been a fan of handlebar muffs, I binned the pair I had when I recently moved house. I wear a pair of HG three finger neoprene over mitts over my three finger HG Pathan winter gloves, they increase the warmth and waterproofing of the very good Pathan gloves, and I can operate the controls as easily as you can in heavily gloved hands.

I can't say I'm impressed with the big furry monstrosities pictured above, they don't look as if they've had any use in bad weather, and a long ride in heavy rain would have water running down the riders arms soaking the fluffy lining. Neutral

Looks like they've not seen much use in bad weather to me also . Nor does it look like he was looking where he was going . If anyone has a few minutes to view this site - WherethehellisMurph.com .

My warmest overall are a pair of oft repaired old snowmobile mitt style gloves, complete with nose wipers on the inner cuff. They were on sale at the time and knowing what I know now should have bought all they had.

Adventure boy, I just got a new set from Ebay, cost £13:49, look for the ones with Velcro fastening and straps. The opening that passes over the switches and mirrors needs to be wide enough ,and these with the Velcro are
