So, I let a freind borrow my winter gloves and he promtly lost them. Simultaneously I had an issue with my car which forced me to start commuting daily on my 899 (I know, first world problems right). So I was faced with the dilemma of what to do for gloves since it's been in the teens and twenties in the morning and I'm using summer street gloves. After an extensive search and after reading every review I could find, I settled on the Firstgear Kathmandu Gloves, which I purchased from Revzilla. (see pics and watch video review here: Firstgear Kathmandu Gloves - RevZilla )

The gloves are working perfectly, and after being caught in a light drizzle, the rubber visor squeegee on the left thumb turned out to be a cool feature. These gloves protect against wind and water better than my old gloves are definately warm enough and allow much better feel of the controls than my old gloves. If you are looking for some nice winter gloves that won't break the bank, I would at least consider these. Highly recommended.

I also ordered a pinlock (finally!) shield for my Arai, which just came in today. It's my first experience with pinlock and I'll comment on it once I get the chance to use it in the cold.

Love my Alpinestars 365's, on my 2nd pair now, just got them a couple of weeks ago, others lasted from 2008 and had some use in that time, sold them on eBay and still got a good price. Leather with goretex so 100% waterproof! lots of protection and usual Alpinestars quality.

what happened with the Evo? Too boring compared to the duc? :D just playin hope things work out with the car though man
Nothing serious, just a window. The metal cable for the drivers window regulator snapped and it was stuck down. I didn't feel like taping it up and I figured I'd just use the bike till the part came in. It's fixed now thankfully because there's snow on the ground and I need the AWD!

Electric clothing is the way to go. I currently ride with a pair of Gerbings, and love them. They plug in, so the wires are a little unsightly. I just ordered a pair of battery powered liners for a little more flexibility.
