Lots of good advice guys.
Thanks!

BTW. the helmet fits good.
I feel a lot better riding it.
And with the boots etc.

For one thing, the full-face
cuts through a lot better.

I'm still getting some numb fingers.
From the low bars?
Maybe just the Sportster vibration?

One trick for numb hands is to move them around frequently. I ride one handed with a very light grip and then switch using the thumb set screw on the throttle when it's my right hands turn.

Also not holding on with a death grip helps... :icon_laughing:


You can have it cheap.
You can have it fast.
You can have high quality.
PICK ANY 2....

That's a good one.
I noticed on the last ride
my hands were real good.
And if I recall,
they started getting numb after I thought about it.
Weird.

I'll try less of a death grip :icon_thumbsup:

I find my full finger electric gloves work great, protect and keep my hands warm on those cold rides
