Has anybody installed hand guards ?
I used to wear "mittens" when I built snowmen in New York, about 50+ years ago! For some reason, eveytime I say or hear the word "mitten." I think of cat's paws. Just messing with ya!I don't see the point of hand guards on a street bike. Hand guards are good at blocking debris and why they should be on off road bikes. Sure, they will help block wind like a wind screen, but it only reduces some. After many years of trying to solve cold hands, I have found out that no single pair of gloves alone will do the job, not even heated or adding insulated gloves, all they do is add a little time extension. The first thing you must do is block the wind off the hands before any combination of hand protection. I have found out that bar mittens are best at this. They are cheap, universal and temporary.
RalphWrecker, can you tell use what model Hippo Hands? I would like to order but I am not sure what model. thanks!now, if you have these babies already installed, check out www.hippohands.com , and you see how both work together for a nice winter ride! I am adding your hand protectors this season, and will use my hippo hands I kept from my previous ride, VTX1800C. They are the same fit. Perfect for cold and wet weather protection
