    What are the best gloves for cold weather. I ride in Phx area with temps around 30+ In middle of night which is when I drive home from work. I'm looking for gloves that I can still feel and operate controls but provide warmth. Any ideas? I have checked cycle gear all gloves where still thick and bulky. Thanks for any input.

    I use a pair of these from Cableas. They work fine for me up here in <30° weather.

    Patagonia makes polyester glove liners, they are thin enough to fit under your regular gloves and add a lot of warmth.
    Phoenix is a great town, I bought a new 82 CBX there, perfect bike for the desert.

    I like these awfully well. Made by Olympia, Weather King Extra's 4100GT. Just DO NOT use the water proofing crap they send with them. Stuff turns to concrete. I like to never got it off.

    the best way to keep your hands warm is with some type of wind protection. A fairing or windshield.
    I have also found placing those disposable hand warmers (the ones with chemicals inside a packet) on top of the back of my hand inside a glove works pretty well.

    The problem with "warm" gloves is usually the bulk. How about using a thinner glove with grip heaters?? They are cheap and fit under your favorite grips.

    If these won't work, I know they make some the velcro around the outside of your grips for temporary installation as well for a decent price. Check out www.aerostich.com

    Gentalmen, I appriate the input.The bike I ride has a fairing. Its a KZ1000 old police bike. I also test drive current police bikes with heated grips. They work fine in the cold but I hate them all other times not comfortable. I purchased a pair of Joe Rockets gantlet groves from cycle gear 24.99 on sale. They did a good job tonight temp @47. Thin enough to feel controls. I'll give them a try for awhile. Again thanks for the help....

    I tried on a pair of Gerbing heated gloves at a dealership. The most comfortable gauntlet-type glove ever. Seemed warm even without the heat turned on. If I were to get heated gloves, these would be the ones (vs. Widder).
