I don’t like the look of han­dle­bar muffs but can they re­ally keep out the cold?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

My Honda NC750 has heated grips but the re­cent cold has still left me strug­gling. Are han­dle­bar muffs worth it? I don’t like the look of them, but a cou­ple of mates have told me they rate them. Gary Smith, Steve­nage

An­swered by Keith Rois­set­ter, In­fin­ity Mo­tor­cy­cles They are not just worth it, but in my world at this time of the year they’re es­sen­tial. Look up a wind­chill chart to see the dif­fer­ence. If you’re only bat­tling the am­bi­ent tem­per­a­ture rather than the wind­chill then you’re off to a good start. The long-es­tab­lished Ox­ford Rain­seals work well and al­low good ac­cess to your switchgear. Slightly smaller mod­els such as they Tu­cano R363s and Bike-it Box­ers look nicer, but some peo­ple find ac­cess­ing the switchgear awk­ward. If you re­ally want warmth Tu­cano of­fer a heated model for £119.99.
