Anyway,on the subject of gloves, can anybody recommend a pair of waterproof, warm gloves.
yes i got these https://www.aliexpress.com/item/2016-New-Netherlan ds-REVIT-Aquila-H20-long-style-winter-warm-waterpr oof-motorcycle-gloves-Racing-gloves-Free/326993576 72.html?spm=2114.13010608.0.0.TWlK6D
which are overpriced in europe and US , got em from china. Its the real deal not a knockoff and works perfect in heavy rain and cold ~5-6 C for about 45 mins . buy a size larger from your current ones . it needed a break in period of a week to take my hands shape
they have got some protection as well.
yes truly worth it

Scotty I used to use a pair of hein gericke Pathan 5 finger gloves, never leaked and warm but protection is a bit light, now I have the muffs in I use summer gloves .. much better but I need some better protection ones, fancy a pair of handroids
better test drive some , not the best for comfort and traveling imho not the best for the cbf style
I'd also recommend 'hand-guards' to keep the wind off, the cheap ones I and others have fitted off e-bay make a lot of difference, just remember to set them up to keep the under draft from the fairing off your hands. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2x-Universal-7-8-22mm-Mo torcycle-Bike-Handguards-Hand-Guards-Protectors-sm oke-/301858464194?hash=item46482aa1c2:g:i8gAAOSwub RXNZJ7
handroids have certainly got protection. Haven't read reviews on them. Been looking at another pair of Knox but reviews weren't that great.
Neil John aye, the Rukka range seem to be pretty good.
I use gloves with Gore-Tex on a bike with heated grips and never observes any kind of problem with this combination.
But there is a typical problem with such gloves, and that is that the Gore-Tex membrane is on the inside of the insulation material.
So when you go high speed throug heavy rain, water will go throug the outer layer - which is not 100% waterproof - and soak the insulation material, so it looses the insulation property.
Hence your hands get utterly cold, althoug staying completely dry.
