Touring Gloves

I ride an RT and I'm looking for mid season touring gloves. I have well used BMW summer gloves and bulky BMW winter gloves but I am looking for a comfortable touring glove that would cover 3 seasons. I'm looking at Lee Parkes gauntlet but not sure. Any suggestions welcome.

Re: Touring Gloves

Like the Held Rodneys. Good airflow and are comfortable.

Revzilla sells them, around 120.00 not the cheapest.

Re: Touring Gloves

For my mid season gloves, I currently use the BMW Allround.

While the fit perfectly and are dry, the only criticism I have is the finger wiper. It tears off. I have never had this happen on a glove before. The first time it was replaced under warranty, and now it has happened again. Even though I trimmed the split rubber, it has continued to split. It will not be too long before I lose the wiper completely.

Not sure if I am the only one who has had this phenomenon, I wonder if others would like to comment.

Best regards
Sleuth

Re: Touring Gloves

Thanks. I wondered about BMW gloves. Just thought I'd look for something different this time but might end up with these

Re: Touring Gloves

I use a set of mid weights from Harley Davidson, and come to think of it my light weights are as well. Whatever works imo

Re: Touring Gloves

I am very pesky about buying gloves. These are good, even a short finger version available. (which is my issue) Held are made in Germany. They know that many folks ride BMW and have heated grips. These work for that. Plenty of protection.

I change your tires $50, you buy them on the web.

Re: Touring Gloves

I use the Held Air N Dry gloves. Very versatile. The same thing is available from BMW. They call them : 2 in 1 gloves.
They must be made by Held because they are exactly the same.

If you can park it, and not turn around to admire it before walking away, you bought the wrong one.

Re: Touring Gloves

I have the BMW Allround glove. Great value, reasonably warm and waterproof. I'm on my second pair and haven't had an issue with the wiper.

Re: Touring Gloves

I normally ride wearing Aerostich Elkskin ropers. I have been using them exclusively for the last eight years. (Same pair) I just decided to try the GS Drygloves. I haven't ridden with them yet as it is only getting to riding weather in the northeast but they are really nice gloves
