Oh I have heated gloves too, but there are several things I don't like about them. First, the cord connectors are awkward and uncomfortable unless you get them settled in just so, and out here on the left coast it rains a lot during the winter. Getting the heated gloves on when your hands are damp is a major PITA! Finally, the California 1100 produces limited surplus current for heated accessories and I want to have enough for Esther to use her heated jacket liner while riding in the sidecar, plus my liner and my heated grips. Wearing heated gloves means no heat for her unless we alternate and that's a hassle. We'll be riding all over the Olympic Peninsula over the Thanksgiving weekend and it's bound to be wet so I am really looking forward to using the Hippo Hands.

I have a pair of those gloves, waterproofed.
But I understand the cable/wire cons...and the battery ones aren't that efficient.
It's just that the guards are simply too ugly to belong on the mighty GRiSO. Laughing Laughing

I agree with that, but on the sidecar rig, in the wind and rain, ugly is the least of my worries.

Picked up a pair of these Hong Kong cheapies on eBay CLICK They work surprisingly well and simply bolt to the mirror mounts (10mm, 1.25 pitch thread). They also allow me to keep my bar-end mirrors.

Thanks for the heads up,

NZ$33.00 arrived in 10 days, bolted straight on, hard to spot

Ya, that would be them. I found they work best if you bend the mounts so that 2/3 to 3/4 of the guard is above the grip. I also picked up a pair of THESE which are far uglier but promise more protection in the winter months.
