I ride all winter. There is no substitute for heated clothing, particularlly heated gloves. Riding cold is riding dangerously. I have Gerbing classic heated gauntlet gloves; they make a thinner glove that is also heated. I also have heated pants liners and a jacket liner. I have been out when its been 17 degree F and I was comfortable.

If you keep the wind off with a good windproof jacket and pants, you can tolerate some very cold temperatures, expecially if you have a full face helmet and a windshield.

I wear heavy leather pack boots in the winter that have removable liners. With or without the lowers on the crash bar, they keep my feet warm and dry in any weather.

I have yet to find a pair of gloves or mitts that I can wear that will keep my hands warm on an extended ride on a motorcycle. Such goves and mitts exist that will stand up to artic conditions, but they are too heavy or thick to allow you to control a motorcycle with them.

Heated cloting and liners let you dress in fewer layers of clothing. This lets you have better control of your bike while keeping warm at the same time.

My Sportster can run all of my heated gear at the maximum setting, which I rarely use, with ease. The only time that the alternator can't keep up is when I am at an idle.

May not fit the 'image' but Held or Frank Thomas ( not the baseball player ) make some serious leather gloves...the idea is to protect your hands...

Update: I had a pair of Frank Thomas kangaroo palm gauntlet gloves. They lasted me a good three years. I cannot complain about them one bit. Fit nice and comfy from day one.

On the newer pair of FXRGarbage gloves that I previously wrote (40 months ago) about I ended up pulling the linings out completely and cutting them out of the gloves. (They were never waterproof anyway.)
I use these as "loaner" gloves. And wouldn't you know it, every time I have loaned them out, I get em back!

Ride Safe,

Don't know how cold it gets in Las Vegas. Maybe you don't need heated.
I have found these Olympia long gloves to be the best for dexterity and still being able to feel the levers.
