Need help

I'm looking for riding gloves that are comfortable but will protect your hands if you fall on gravel or pavement at speed. I've gone to many bike shops(Honda,Kaw, Harley) and cant find a decent pair. I like to be able to move my fingers well and have good palm protection incase of a slide out or high side. All the gloves in the shop look like crap, with bad stitching or weak, thin patches of leather. I was just wondering what everyones opinion was on the best gloves made.

Go to and check out their selection. You can choose style and material of the glove you want.

Previous ride was a 2007 KLR Black/Silver, I miss it..
Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.

Sounds like you want the cake and icecream, and then eat them both.

I think you are going to have to give a little on one or the other. To protect you well it will have to be stiff and/or bulky, but to be flexable it will have to be soft and thin. Try and find a pair with a happy medium.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
