Just a little something for my rockies friends now that it's getting cold...

Go get a set of these:



No, really.

Tusk bar mitts, $15 from Rocky Mountain MC. I've considered using something like this for a long time and just got around to getting some. Now I can't believe I waited so long. These combined with grip heaters allow me to wear thin gloves in cold weather and have toasty hands. I was amazed at the difference they make. For $15, it's a no-brainer.

Looks like Blake's bike is getting all tarted up.

Kinda wanna put the high-output grip warmers on my sled, probably move the ones on my sled now to the bike if I do that.

Ordered a pair, thanks.

Are they pretty easy to take on and off to switch from one bike to the other?

They're too small to work with my HDB gaurds. (plus the HDB mirrors don't work with them).

Super easy to mount, but I had to make holes for the mirrors. The hardest part about moving them from bike to bike would be dealing with mirrors. Otherwise it should only take a minute.

I'm surprised they wouldn't fit over the guards. Fit over my Acerbis guards with room to spare. In fact, I wonder if they'd hold their shape without handguards.

You could probably poke a hole in the ends for the mirrors.

If my bike sits like that...a superfund site appears due to the massive amount of gas coming out.

Well frack. My washing machine just stopped working.

Is there anyone here that deals in this type of stuff to either repair or replace.

It's a holiday, my next day off is next Thursday, I have dirty laundry.

I am in panic mode here.
