Batting gloves

anyone else use batting gloves?

If it smells like cologne, leave it alone.

I do. I have for years. I love the grip & comfort they give me for everyday street riding.

do yourself a favor and don't! I used to wear mechanics gloves, and as you would expect I went down and they did pretty much no good, the thin leather burns right through, I would have saved myself a lot of pain and injury if I would have had my padded racing gloves, my nuckles were tore the f up, muy left hand had several bones broke on the back of it, and my right wrist was serverely broke and battered, probably wouldn't have saved the broke bones, but it would have been a whole lot less painful without the rash under the casts.

I used them years ago. Went down with them and didn't have much of a problem. I probably wouldn't use them again though.

A-star gloves were $70, being able to wipe your own ass after going down = Priceless

lotta newbies, where did all the regulars go?
