Well do it after the campout. At the campout, they'll be plenty of people to give you valuable pointers on what to do and look for. Its an important part of any maintenance effort.

You just had your 44,563 mile maintenance. You shouldn't have to turn a wrench for another four years.

Those look seriously warm. Reminds me of the day I left Yellowstone 37F and raining. F'ing miserable. I didn't think gear existed that would have kept my hands warm but this looks like the deal.

I can't quite read the logo - got some brand info for us? Or better yet a link.

Does it say Tucano? Google says that is a brand.

Only took about a week to get mine. Less than $100 total. Much better than gloves. A couple of things, little tight at first over switches,
so I wedged in a couple roles of paper towels, let them sit overnight and stretched them out.
Second, you really can't stand on the pegs at the angle they sit. Which may or may not be an issue for you.
You have to do a little finageling to get them air tight as possible, but I'm very happy with them.
Mid 30's couple hours, grip heaters on low, nice and warm,,

Didn't that German bike company buy a Swedish bike company and start making them in Italy? And these come from England, right? Makes sense to me. Sort of.

Sounds like they do not go on and off quickly or easily. I'd use them when I'm on the pavement for long stretches at high speed, not so much in the dirt. Wil they come off easily when the sun gets up?

yeah, they do limit the off road possibilities, great for road trips. Really not bad getting them on,
first time 30-45 minutes then a few adjustments after riding.
I've got them zip tied in a few places to minimize cold air coming in around mirrors and support, so no on and off.
On the other hand, you could loosen to get some ventilation if needed. Today, 65 degrees with regular gloves , hands not hot.


Italian company that started making muffs etc for scooters, then expanded. I think some are on fleabay but not the same model for a GS.


PS. Go Stars !!
