If you don't like heated gloves, go to a sports store or hunting store and get those chemical disposable hand warmers. They last about 8 hours, they're cheap and work well for hands and feet. Also good for keeping your camera and batteries warm in your tank bag.



If that's not enough, then just tweak your existing gear: (heated grips, Hippo hands) with gerbing electric glove liners inside army surplus winter arctic mitts. That will let you ride in any temperature you'd ever think of wanting to do. Might need to duct tape the seam between the mitts and your jacket to avoid cold air leaks, but you'd be totally set for anything not completely insane.
