    My buddy has some on his CVO. They are kinda close to the levers and my man hands hit them when grabbing for the levers. Those in the above picture look farther back and better suited for guys with long fingers.

    They are universal, and came with a couple extension pieces and hardware to adjust them to your liking. Pretty effective for $25, I've been running mine for a couple of years now with no complaints-or rust!

    I always read the reviews on anything I plan to buy.
    I agree with you that People expect too much from gloves.
    I saw an ad the other day for gloves advertised for -30F
    Reviews were great. I didn't expect them to be good to anywhere near -30F
    I did however expect them to keep my hands relatively warm at 35 above.
    Hell my hands got cold in 40F after 10 min.

    How about snowmobile gloves or mitts? Not that great at being dexterous but they keep your hands warm. And are water proof to some extent. If they’re good enough to wear at 0F at 40 mph they’re good enough for 32F at any speed. Not expensive. Get a pair.

    I got these for my Vegas
    National Cycle N5521 Hand Deflector | eBay

    I got a less expensive set to replace them but the bracket was shorter, so I just straightened the old bent bracket and used the new plastics.

    I've been out on my Vegas in the low 20s, the hand deflectors help to the wind from going up your sleeves too.

    Lee Park Gloves (PCi)

    So cool, yet so warm. The incomparable Lee Parks Design DeerSports PCi gloves provide iconic good looks, legendary durability, and world-class performance and comfort in a crazy-wide temperature range (35°–75°F). They were the first motorcycle gloves on the market to feature the amazing Outlast phase-change lining. Being thin on the palm side allows them to feel almost like uninsulated gloves, and for those with heated grips, they actually absorb the heat and Outlast's conductive properties warm both sides of your hands, without burning your palms like unlined gloves can.

    Proudly made in the USA.

    When I had my GoldWing I had a pair of rechargeable heated gloves. They had a usb cord for recharging and would be fully charged in an hour. Heat had three levels, I never used anything above the first level because it was too hot. They lasted about 4 hrs which worked fine for me if I left early morning it was usually warmed up enough in 4 hrs that I didn't need them. Used them in 18 deg ride in NC in the snow and they worked great. My hands were warm but the throttle cable froze!! LOL I bought them at Cycle Gear for about $100. Don't remember the brand. They sat in a box in storage after I sold the Wing for many years and when I pulled them out the leather was all gummy and falling apart so they got trashed. There are Many of these on the market now.

    Ideally, mittens are the ticket because your fingers help warm each other. When you separate your fingers it stops that.

    The position of your hands has them borderline falling asleep 1/2 the time no matter what the temperature. Warm hands at 30degrees? Naaa...

    Reviews are off the charts, being made in USA is a plus for me. Going to order a pair in yellowish, as when I see traffic down the road that wants to enter the road, I will often throw my left hand in the air and wave to make sure I am seen.

    I don’t put much stock in reviews as they are often bought and otherwise generated. When I do check reviews I look at the bad ones & see if they’re consistent with each other, ie misrepresented, quality issues or just unreal expectations.

    Why spend a lot of money on heated grips or gloves.
    I have for years steering wheel gauntlets and warm hands. In December there was always the custom bike show, which is about 70 miles of driving. Even at -5°(23 °F) I didn't have cold fingers. Even when riding in heavy rain it is good, the gloves stay dry even after 300 km.

    MEDIUM only!
    But I bought a pair of snowmobile gloves that a friend calls lobster gloves. Thumb then portions for 2 fingers each. Work well. About $50.
