Hippo hands are the business!

Very happy with my purchase! Had to actually turn off my heated grips! Was wearing thin mechanic gloves.

FYI - The hippo hands folks are retiring once present stock is sold out....get em while you can.

Roaming Rally 2014

Anyone thinking about doing the Roaming Rally 2014 Explorer? Any teams looking for another rider? I ride a 2007 Wee Strom for the past 6 years. Been spending most of my time riding north of Kingston on any gravel road I can find.

i'm not sure if I'm going to do the explorer ride.... doubting I'll have the fuel capacity, but I do like the area this ride travels thru.

I'm on a x-challenge.

Thanks for the tip. After years of cold hands and procrastinating I ordered a set today.

winter trail riding?

Awaiting some Kold Kutter ice screws to install and venture out to some snowy trails in the near. Just putting it out there in the event there is someone in the region that may be interested in some exploring. Can't bare to watch the bike sit over the winter and don't have the 1000 bucks to invest without "penalty" on proper ice tires. Planning on just heading out early saturday or sunday mornings after a snow storm. This plan may help me make the decision to store the bike for winter or invest in proper studded gear after the first adventure...

You'd probably guess this is one of my favourite roads... Winter or Summer.

Old rumour. The story was the old Giant Tiger location there, but a survey revealed something on the site that required a hazmat type clean up, killed that lot choice. Haven't heard more since that back a few months.

Haven't been able to get any hard facts from anyone, I consider anything like this to rumour pretty much. Even if it's a car only shop, we should be able to order bike parts at least, same system.

No sweat. After my trip to the rock last summer I would consider these perfect for July in Nfld!
