Hello,

The last time I purchased gloves for riding I paid over $100.00 for them and well they didn't last as long as I would have liked

Yesterday I was picking up some stuff for another project at Home Depot..and I found a really nice pair of gloves ,with double palms and knuckle protection..for less than $30.00.

I think they will great for summer riding!

Yup great idea!
I too have a couple of similar type gloves I use as well as MC gloves.
I have found that the construction and protective qualities of some of them can be superior to much more expensive MC gloves of similar materials.

A good place (for Canadian's) to buy gloves and motorcycle gear in general, is at https://www.canadasmotorcycle.ca/street ... loves.html

The do have some great deals and shipping is free for order over $49.

Unfortunately they only ship in Canada, and their shipping policy is:

International Shipping:
Please note we only ship to Canada. We do not ship to the USA or internationally.

My gloves are O'Neils, I think they were only 25 AU dollars, so that's what 5 US bucks? :whistling:

I was in a situation the other week where the throttle went into some slippery mud. I could not for the life of me turn it with my bare hand. But my cheapo glove worked just fine.

On the down side there's not much in the way of blister protection. Though the DR has awful ergos anyway, and the TM40 does increase the throttle force which does not help. The only practical disadvantage is that it makes masturbation slightly less pleasurable.

Another option is Tillman Trufit goatskin gloves. They work great as mild weather motorcycle/work/shop gloves.

I bought a set of FOX BOMBER gloves , off evilbay .

Very happy with them so far , I only paid around $26 for them to my door , they were coming out of asia , I think they were factory seconds being sold , hence the cheap price .

Only thing I can find wrong with them is one of the fingers is a tiny bit twisted due to how they were stitched , but in no way can feel it or affects using the glove , it is purely only a cosmetic flaw.

cheapest link to them I could find , only $25 Australian ,with free postage.

Another good place to find armoured work gloves is Canadian Tire, when they go on sale. Especially when they go on sale for 1/2 price. A good set of Mechanix Wear Pro Impact Glove, or the Mechanix Wear Leather Impact Glove work great. They make great riding gloves if you can find them for a good price.
