    relief for cold hands & feet

    Tried to ride to the Okanagan last weekend. It was cold but sunny all the way to Hope. At least my hands & feet were ok thanks to Mountain Equipment Co-op. They sell neoprene socks that work great. With one thin pair of socks first, then the neopene scocks, then my winter boots - My feet were warm even at 120km/hr in the shade which was below freezing. The neoprene gloves alone were ok but an overglove would have increased comfort a bit. My V-Strom has handguards but no grip heaters. The socks and gloves are inexpensive and fairly well made. As it was I turned back at Hope and took the car the next day

    When speeding run from the cops, it's a lesser infraction.

    Just wondering how much the neoprene stuff costs? I remember I was in Quebec and they were trying to pass off neoprene as goretex and charged over $20 for one pair of socks...

    Hey good old pete, Iwish I could say it was the result of of semi crash with a truckload of flour. This photo marks the spot where I decided riding is over for the year. Made it back home to Port Coquitlam for a nice spot of tea !

    Greetings Obsidian raven, the MEC neoprene paddling gloves are 16.00 and they have rubber dots on the palms fro grip; they are great for winter mountain biking as well and the socks are a bargain at 9.00 and they are quite comfortable. You can check them out www.mec.ca
