    Best summer gloves?

    The BMW summer gloves I bought at the Burlington, Vt. rally in 2006 are worn out.
    Anyone have a suggestion for hot weather riding gloves?

    I use Held Air Stream. Expensive ($129.00), but in my opinion worth it. Great quality and good air flow. Heldusa.com

    I use the Lee Parks short summer gloves, soft as butter, grip like nothing else I have worn. Worth every penny... $80.00 ballpark...

    I picked up a pair of BMW Pro Summer gloves a few weeks ago. Really like them! $100.

    Helmets don't save lives but loud pipes do?

    I ride in 95 degree heat routinely and this glove ventilates well while still offering good protection. You can get lighter shorter cut gloves but you end up with less protection and sun burned wrists.

    If you want the very best for comfort and protection, the Helimot F-108 gets my endorsement. These gloves are safe to dunk in water for those extra hot days.

    Another pair that offers great protection are the Motoport racer gloves made from stretch Kevlar. I don't have these yet, but I am tempted because they never wear out. Maybe when my Helimots wear thin.
