Hands were freezing from the recent cold wave, gloves alone were not cutting it. Found these cool mits from Kwik Tek, fits the SW perfectly and best of all they're cheap. got them for 15 from Amazon. I had them for 2 weeks and love them. No issues, I can operate everything as usual even with winter gloves on.

Problem I, (personnally), have found with those things is that if not kept clear of the brake levers then they can push the brake levers back, applying the brake slightly, (barely noticable if at all) but certainly making the brake light come on!!!

A friend manufactured a 'L' shaped bracket he mounted between the grip and the bar end weight. For me the extra fettling isn't worth the effort.

I use an expensive but proven winter glove. As I haven't found anything as good and they are aging now I am moving towards Gebring's heated glove !!!!!!

As I said - my findings and thoughts.

I put a pair of handlebar muffs I'd had for years in a charity shop bag a few months ago because I never used them. I've got heated grips, a pair of really Hein Gericke Pathan 2x2 finger lobster claw gloves for winter use, and to cover them I bought a pair of their new neoprene lobster claw over gloves in Hannover last month. They're basically handlebar muffs you wear, and I've got some Rain Off gloves in the same style.

Regardless of bike, I never have been able to make handlebar muffs work safely.

Winter use I have pair of Harley leather mitts, purchased in '66, cheap ski gloves in side, they work down into 20's F.

Better is from Aerostich #442 Triple Digit Gloe covers, rise high over wrist and WATERPROOF-$47----I had a pr but cannot find them.

Problem is makers/designer don't seem to ride......windshields/fairing should include hand protection......would make riding in cold/wet better. "Bat-Wing" fairings keep quite a bit more of the weather off you hands.

Have tried "enduro" hand guards....they keep little of the weather off you hands.
