They work great if you have hand guards on your bike to keep them off your levers.

But yeah, without hand guards, they'll press on your levers and cause you issues on both the clutch and brake side.

Hippo Hands + heated grips + summer gloves = Winter bliss!!!

I'm a Hippo Hand snob and have like 6 pairs, but I love 'em. I used a pair this past weekend when it was really chilly while dual sporting on my WRR. Between those and my heated grips, I was the only one with warm hands!

I need the buckles re-sewn onto the boot and the sole re-attached.

The sole will be easy. I can epoxy the crap out of that. The buckles are past my domestication.

Keep in mind this is a last ditch effort to save the $200 I should spend on newer to me boots
what brand boots? some Euro brands have repair facilities here in the US

Sheez, when the duct tape comes off just put some more on, and when it gets too thick, scrape it off then reapply. You can probably make them last forever that way.

How old is that picture?

That picture's soooo old...It's Mose's proverbial burning bush.
