I'm so pissed!:mad:
Was oiling up my 10 day old pair of FXRG gloves this morning and noticed that the lining is coming out of them!

I bought a pair of the old style FXRG textile gloves last year. These looked like well built gloves. Until the outside seams came apart.
On the first ride!

I also have the middle weight textile jacket. A nice jacket except for the fact that the snaps for the liner keep falling off. Took it back to a dealer and they had to send it in to get the snaps replaced. Between shipping and logistics, I was without a jacket for over 4 months.

This second pair of FXRG gloves (the new "improved" leather ones) are only 10 days old.

This is the best gear that the MOCO makes?:rolleyes:
A word to the wise. Save your money.

No more Functional Riding Garbage for me!

That stinks Vettster,

I do own one pair of the FXRG Gloves. I'm not sure how many ones there are but mine are the leather winter weight gloves. So far the leather is staying soft and they are staying together after two winters.

Thanks for the heads up. For the price these items should be the finest that there is.

Why oil 10 day old gloves, or any gloves?

Thanks for the Information. I am looking for Cold Weather Riding Gloves. Been looking every where and can not find a pair that is comfortable that still gives you the dexterity needed that are warm enough. If any one has any more info on winter riding gloves please let me know. I want to try and stay away from the heated gloves.

Thanks
Mike

The address below is for battery heated gloves. Not by bike battery but lithium ion packs on each glove. They are not leather but they are the warmest gloves I've ever worn, even with the heat off. Rode at 22 deg F and hands were toasty.

Bought mine at twomorrowssupply.com

Don't forget that most of the HD clothing are made in 3rd.world country's so they can make a hugh profit off of you.

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...:thumbsup

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.:nod

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!:cussing

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.
