Tip for dealing with wet gloves: silk liners!

Now that the rainy season is upon us, here is a suggestion for the inmates who get out in the rain.

I happened to spend yesterday many hours riding in the torrential downpours in NY and in NJ and the issue is fresh on my mind.

I have been always using silk liners in low temperatures and found them to be very effective. However, a while back, 'xmagnarider' on BMWLT forum pointed out another great idea: using the silks in the rain. As you all know, there is no such thing as waterproof gloves - sooner or later they'll soak through. Then, they become almost impossible to put on or take off wet hands: the interior liner sticks to the skin.

This is where the silk gloves come in: even when wet, they will allow the riding gloves to slide on smoothly. Amazing discovery! It helped me with taking pictures in inclement weather, too: I no longer dreaded taking off the gloves to operate my camera in the rain.

I hope you find this useful .
