Go ahead and get the jokes out now.:eek:ld:
I have a serious cold hand problem especially at cruising on the hwy
We used these for snowmobiling and they worked great.
Better than heated grips or gloves and keeps everything dry
Only issue i've read about was them pushing on the levers at speed

EZ mittens

I threw some dirt bike looking Bark Busters on Lynn's bike. She has cold hand issues also. They work surprisingly well.

I received a set as a free gift from Oxford when I bought my heated grips. I havnt ever used them but if i did im thinking it would make a toasty warm cavity with the grips on. if they did cause a problem with unexpected brake activation one could form out of some 1 inch wide x 1/8 inch Steele. Attach the end of piece to the part of the mittens where it locks down around the bars and form it so it keeps the front part away from the brake and clutch lever.

On my ride last December, one day it was 23F on the 2nd morning when we left the cozy motel. With heated grips and electric gloves, I was pretty comfortable, but some handguards would have been nice. The Hippo Hands look cozy, but I have enough trouble using all the buttons. The other day, cruising about 80, I hit the kill switch trying to turn off the cruise with the button. Should have just tapped the brake, but when the engine shut down, the rear wheel locked and slid a lurid black snake in the road before I stopped laughing and pulled in the clutch.

Hi I have a hands sweat problem and I used to wear gloves that I purchased from the ski bum..
The gloves are very warm and too comfortable to wear.
I also hope these will also suitable for your hands.

Me and my trusty old KZ-900, many, many, many moons ago. Here I am in Brooklyn using the original hippo hands on my way to Phoenix, AZ, with temperatures in the mid 30's. They allowed me to ride all winter.
