... and i have to say they're absolutely brilliant!

I didn't want the hassle of being 'plugged in' so went with a pair of cordless RST Paragon gloves currently £150 at Sportsbikeshop

I don't have heated grips fitted to either bike so these were an ideal solution for both. The coldest i've ridden with them so far was a 'VFR dash indicated' -1 and after a 30 min commute (20 mins motorway) my hands and finger tips remained nice and warm.

Here's an and this guy has done a (same gloves but a earlier design without knuckle protection.)

Not sure how i've managed without them!

They look ace! :D

Very wise move getting those gloves in case temperatures really plummet - I still have bad memories of that very cold winter we had a few years back (can't remember the precise year) - I had an 80 mile commute to work and back in sub-zero temperatures - combined with the 70mph - 80mph wind chill on the motorway made it a horrible experience - I had basic winter gloves but by the time I was entering central London where I worked I could barely move my fingers to work the clutch and a few times couldn't even change gear and had to work the throttle to stop the bike stalling - if the cold snap had gone on any longer I would have been looking at frostbite.

I used to hug the coolant pipe and top of the engine until I got heated grips.

Used to rock some handguards at some point, kept my hands fairly warm with the combination.
