    Good protective glove deal

    The gloves that I've been recommending here... https://tw200forum.com/forum/performa...ab-themed.html, can be had for a great deal right now. I found them cheapest on Amazon... http://amzn.to/2lfpvN7 I think it's because they are being discontinued, so grab them before they're gone. These are the Alpinestars Masai gloves. It's a short cuff 1-3 season glove that has good protection as well as the palm slider protection that I think is a must for a motorcycle gloves. I run them for all of my dual-sport and off-road riding, and I think they are a great choice for Moab. That palm slider is important because when you go down you instinctively put your hands out to try to break your fall, and on a hard surface like asphalt and slickrock you can end up with broken hand and wrist bones. *NOTE* I find that they run a full size smaller than I usually wear, so go up one size.

    47.00 is a discounted price? How much were they before the discount?

    Some sites like Motorcycle Superstore still sell them for their regular price of $75. Even at that price they are on the cheaper end of the scale for protective motorcycle gloves. At $47 I think they are a steal, as I paid full price for my first pair that I have been using for 2 years.

    These are comfortable, give full "feel" to the controls and are under $20 at Lowes.
    They are my daily riding gloves and are good to temps down to about 40 F.
    At 7,000 feet elevation, about a week ago my hands felt cool at just under 40F.

    i have been using various "work" gloves too, similar feel, pretty heavy duty and way cheaper! Easy to find touch sensitive too. Those Kobalt look particularly good, less touch sensistivity.

    We all have our personal preferences but thanks Wa Larry for sharing the link!

    Thanks Admiral. As someone who has watched me crash on the slickrock in Moab, you know that without the gear I wear, I could have been really injured instead of jumping up and saying "Let's try that again." Every year we have new friends headed for Moab and looking for advice. My advice is to get and wear protective gear. I go to Moab knowing that I am going to crash, so I try to be prepared. So, that was my goal here, not to start a cheapest glove thread, but share a deal on a pair of motorcycle gloves that offer the minimal protection that I recommend.
