Default So anyway, there I was.......

Looking up "Hippo Hands" because it getting down below freezing at night and my Heritage is a little thin on hand protection. My hands are very cold sensitive after years of crappy weather riding so I figure a set of the Canadian Mittens would do the trick, well this vid popped up and reminded me of the ol' Nat. Lampo "Mud splattering Hippo fart" comic..

For your viewing pleasure......

I think there is a company that makes a set of hand guards for your HOG.

They look kinda dirt bike dorky but might suffice for the winter.

Heated grips baby!

I bought a set of Warm 'n Safe 12vdc gloves year before last after freezing my hands during Bike Week. About $120 for the gloves and harness, IIRC. Naturally it hasn't gotten cold enough to use them since.

If I were doing it again, I'd probably go for the new battery powered gloves. It looks like they're pretty good now; 8+ hours ride time, rechargable 100's of times, etc.

Handguards are big help too. They also keep the wind from blowing up your sleeves.
