Have an 06 ABS and was wondering what gloves work best in cold weather with the grips? Have a few pairs and some heat the palms great but the back of the hand gets cold. What's your suggestion?? Thanks so much.

(not using Mirror/Hand Wings in case you read the thread on the other board)

Gerbings. I've tried all sorts of gloves and, like you, the tops of my hands would still get cold (I have grip heaters also). I got a pair of Gerbings and problem solved. I bought the snowmobile type because I like a velcro closure and a bit of a gauntlet to cover my sleeve. BTW, if you have long fingers, get a size larger than normal. See them here:

There is a glove made for heated grips it is insulated on the back but not the palm. Here it is http://www.hotgrips.com/gloves.html

I wear one of Joe Rockets that is light weight but has the protection pading on the knuckles and fingers seems to work pretty good. But then again KY winters are not that bad.

I'm having the same problem. Just got my wing, and the Harley had more hand protection from the fairing. I will be getting mirror wings soon, hopefully that will help.

I use my Olympia gel-palm summer gloves. They breath great --- that's important because the heat makes your hands sweat. I use thin liners if it goes below 30 degrees.
The gel really picks up and distributes the heat.
I have a variety of other "special" gloves but always go back to my summer gloves. I usually don't ride below 10 degrees though.
