An old tip but a good one

Motorcycle Monthly - - Have Your Say -

Hello to all riders out there. I ex­pect this is a well-known tip, but I thought I’d share it with you.

Last Au­tumn I was caught out by a change in the weather and de­spite wear­ing good qual­ity leather gloves, my hands were frozen to the point that I could not feel the con­trols.

I stopped at ser­vices on the M5 and bought a cof­fee to warm up. As a des­per­ate mea­sure I swiped a few pairs of the dis­pos­able gloves from the dis­penser at the fuel pumps - put one pair on un­der my gloves and stashed the rest in my jacket. I con­tin­ued my jour­ney in the bad weather and my fin­gers were toasty! Mark Jef­fery Ex­moor
