I never had a problem with gloves fitting until I got a pair of these. I bought them through their website after reading a review in one of the moto-mags. They suck. The thumb is out of proportion to the rest of the fingers. I called them up and the only thing they had to say was that since they are made from deerskin they will eventually stretch!

They’re collecting dust in my garage.

Let me understand this....you are in the market for a ~$100 pair of gloves, and you are gonna quibble over +- $10 on the price?



I have no opinion as to whether these are worth more or less than the Held gloves, but 10 bucks one way or the other probably ain't gonna be the deciding factor. Comfort and protection are too important, and considering how much I have invested in the rest of my gear (not to mention the motorcycle), why should I scrimp here?



Style is in the eye of the beholder, but what is it that you find ugly?

To paraphrase the old Bell Helmets ad slogan -- if ya got $20 hands, wear $20 gloves.

I think the air cleaner/chip upgrade is the most bang for the buck (based on my father's Ultra vs. my now sold Ultra). The one issue with it was that there was a dramatic increase in intake noise. The extra power was nice however.



I never thought the slip-ons made a huge difference in usable power. I, like longride, preferred to keep mine a little socially acceptable.

They'd look even less gay if, in addition to the chrome knuckles, you cut the fingers off. That wouldn't look gay at all.



You're right--they really are great gloves. I usually go through a pair of gloves every two seasons (I ride a lot in all kinds of bad weather). I think these will be the first to last longer.

Helds are nice. I really like the built-in squeegie (sp). Comes in real handy at times. Bad thing about Held is their support network. Basically, there is none. I scuffed my pair last year and wanted to get them repaired (like Vanson, Z and other swill do), but no dice. Also, Parks gloves are made in the good old US of A.
