just wanted to say that motocross gloves don't cut it on the street. I recently lowsided going about 25 wearing motocross gloves, and really tore up my fingers(evulsions to the knuckles, nothing to stitch). basically the the fingers of the glove rolled to the side where it is made of lycra type material. the flack protection on the front of the fingers did absolutely no good. I'm broke as hell right now so I'm wearing some leather work gloves until i can afford some real ones.
have I ridden without gloves in the past? yes. will I in the future? no. cheap lesson I suppose, could have been worse.
