Question Gloves

I need to replace my gloves.

So I am turning to you, the experts, to help me out here. When your looking for gloves what do you normally look for? I want to upgrade from the Walmart specials (which have served me well) to something a little better built and designed.

I know what I need in a glove, but I'm curious to see what you suggest.

Good idea. The hands always hit the asphalt in a crash. I've seen the moto GP riders slide across the track on their knees and hands after a high side like they are on ice.

I would suggest looking on Craigslist for motorcycle specific gloves. If you are patient, some very good quality gloves will come up for remarkable prices. I bought one pair of Olympia Kevlar gloves for $10, a pair of Rev'it summer gloves with an air vent for $15, and a pair of almost new Olympia 340 Kevlar gloves for $20. All the pairs were in good condition with no tears or damage.

The stuff I got for them is pretty nice also. Quick shipping.
I wanted some black decals that you see mostly at night time, as my BR has a good bit of black frames like around the headlights, around the edges of the leg guards, and around my rear extra large rack, thats on.
I also got a small sheet of black reflective to maybe decal the back of my mirrors and brake fluid resevoirs, for some extra night time POP.
Man they go one so nice and easy once you follow their videos. I've not worked decals since the mid 60's when I built model cars and what not.
I also did my helmet mostly as trucks have those hugeass blind spots we can fall into, so I'm thinking all the more reflective I get, the better my chances to be seen.
Once I get back from CON, I'm going to order a set of gloves.

My newest gloves are Shock-Tek MC6080 fingerless gloves. The fingers on my right hand would tingle and become numb if I didn't have cruise control of some sort... These Shock-Tek gloves have eliminated this problem. The padding in the palm of the glove takes some time to become accustomed to, but the end result is well worth the effort. These are not cheap gloves, but not bad compared to regular motorcycle gloves.

I bought a pair at (believe it or not)Harbor Freight! They are not riding gloves but work gloves & they are goatskin instead of regular leather. They require some modifications that can be easily done with a pair of scissors but also have a Velcro strip on the wrist They are not reflective but are very comfortable & soft.Irish
