which gloves to get

I'm torn between the Teknic Lightning Pros http://www.calsportbike.com/cgi-bin/...d=1306&count=1

and the MotoGP Nitrous http://street-bikes.ridegear.com/cgi...c88+1111216203
(chaparrall has them cheaper but no pic)

both in red of course. which ones do you guys suggest?

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: which gloves to get

I don't have either of those, but I do own a couple pairs of rs taichi gp max's that are holding up to the daily commute. I think someone on ebay has them for $85, they retail for $160-$180.

Re: which gloves to get

both of those Taichi's are nice (although I think I like the Evo's better). Good suggestions but I kinda wanna stay in the $100 ball park or just under. I do want something that's gonna last though because the Fieldsheers I have developed a hole in the side of the tip of one finger (probably from rubbing against the next finger). And I've only had them for 2 seasons. I know they aren't as high a quality gloves as either of the ones I mentioned or the ones you guys said but a whole from just plain wearing them seems pretty crappy to me.

Anymore suggestions?

What size do you need.
New Enough closeouts

Motorcycle leather exchange Closeouts

It's amazing how stupid some people can be.

hahaha very funny. I'm almost done with my truck driver training. One more lesson monday to try all the cone maunevers that I've learned and make sure I can still do all of them. if that goes well I'll have them set up an appointment for the license test. Then once I get that its off to job hunting (the school has lifetime job placement assistance. Plus there's a ton of truck driving jobs out there)

as flashy as they may be, i still think they will protect my hands very well in a crash... plus they were expensive, so i don't want to just throw them out and buy new ones

I'm not huge on the styling and I worry about the size. they do say they run small so a medium would be a small which is what I'm looking for but I'd be happier buying a small.

why don't I just make it the Bling while I'm at it. Although I like the look of the TiMax gloves I'd never wear them. They're too heavy and I've heard a story or 2 about the metal cutting into your hand in a crash (probably an extreme circumstance though).

I'm kinda leaning towards those Moto GP ones. I figure no one else seems to have them yet so I might as well be the whipping boy and test them out.

Anymore suggestions keep them coming.
I'm gonna hold off until tomorrow evening to order anything so I can get the last few opinions and that way the order can be processed monday morning and get sent out asap.

Re: which gloves to get

FYW I have some JR Phoenix gloves and found them disappointing. I have 2 sets of Tour Masters and like both (one is vented leather, the other is armored)

thats a perfect example of kind of reply I'm looking for.
I have a pair of JR mesh/textile/leather ones. I wear them when its really really hot and I'm not going to far (easier to do just one velcro strap as opposed to 2 per glove) They aren't on the site anymore so I guess they don't make them anymore. I like them but don't wear them a lot. I much prefer a good full leather guantlet style glove. The hands are the first thing you try to break you fall with instinctively so I'd rather have some good protection there.

The Tour Master Robomax's are pretty sweet looking, they might be third on my list. I've heard good stuff about them in a recent thread.

Maybe I should wait till monday night to place an order as the sundays are usually dead around here. See if I can get a bunch of opinions. You people suck, you make me want all this stuff and just make my decisions harder.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Mine are Carbon Comp II and my main glove. I also have some Cruiser Gel gloves very comfortable but not armor/padding. Good for slow riding when your hand is tired.

Re: which gloves to get

My vote would be for the GP Nitrous's. But they do look bulky, and I really dislike bulky gloves.
