they do make your hands black the first time you ride in the rain with them....

i do also use my 20 year-old Thurlow Deerskins from time to time.... world's most comfortable gloves.

Good sir,

I decided to get a 2 wheel BMW instead of the 4 a wheel BMW (driving a Honda now) and the cost difference is my justification for the money spent on the gear so far (maybe rationalization is more appropriate).

For now, I think the helimot buffalo pro http://www.helimot.com/shopexd.asp?id=67 will be my long distance / touring glove and I will either one of the other more racier helimots or another more sport oriented version with the SPS system (either the velocity gear prodigy or the Kus hitani GPR 5).

One benefit of the helimot glove is that they can custom size the fingers ($7 per finger) and that is something that I have an issue with in the past...so definitely keeping one of the helimots.

Fingers crossed
