Well done on the gear Papa...... what works rather than what looks the part. Coming from a farming background, that's how it has been for me. I find a lot of "proper" motorcycle gear is good for riding, but otherwise impractical.

Those "ski gloves" look like they might be mittens rather than gloves with fingers. Back home I use leather mittens that I picked up from a farm supplies shop. When the mercury drops there is room for lightweight woollen gloves under them.

Wool next to the skin... long johns and and top.... do it for me. If there is a drop of rain (and there often is where I have wintered in NZ and UK) wool will take care of any seepage and stay warm even when damp. I don't think pyjamas would cut it!
there are old motorcyclists and bold motorcyclists
but you seldom meet an old, bold motorcyclist
