Two kinds of folks ride motorcycles: Those who ride year round and those who lock their bikes away during the cold months. Winter is a tough time of year for even the hardiest of riders to enjoy riding motorcycles. First, its pretty dang cold. And when the temperature really drops, roads can get icy. While there’s not much that can be done for the latter other than wait for the roads to de-ice, the former can be helped by wearing riding gear designed specifically for the conditions.

Since so much is done with your digits on a motorcycle, good winter gloves are a must. Here are 10 examples of the variety of winter gloves available from a wide range of well-known manufacturers. Additionally, because of the higher chances of encountering the wet stuff during the winter season, we decided to only include waterproof insulated gloves in this guide. And, because heated gear can increase your ability to ride in the coldest of weather, we’ve included them in the mix, too.

Well I'll say this, and this goes for the thread about the buyer's guide for boots too: if you need to be taught how to buy gloves OR boots, you have less than zero business being on a motorcycle. If you can't figure how to buy boots, good luck learning to ride a motorcycle. A "buyers guide" for boots? Cut me a break...

Um, a "buyers guide" is most times NOT a guide on "how" to buy something. Most times its just a run down of what's on the market... Most "buyers guides" you see online or in cycle magazines are just reviews they have done of products that match a certain criteria. Like waterproof winter gloves. Or riding boots. It's just a "guide" to show you what's available....it is not a "how to"..

You're taking the phrase to literal here.... LOL

What we really need is a finance guide for purchasing such equipment.
So true! I received a gift of a pair of gortex boots and they were expensive. I wore those things in the rain, walked through puddles with no issues. Still, I have no problems with putting plastic trash bags in my boots and still do as my other boots are more rugged looking and more to my liking.
