    I came home a little richer from Boonville.

    But unfortunately that means someone else came home a little poorer. So who's missing a pair of Tusk Bar Mitts? I arrived there with 2 pairs and came home with three.

    Maybe they reproduce like rabbits and you have to keep the males separate from the females.
    Certainly the pair you loaned me were much appreciated. Many,many thanks Rider21!

    Knowing you'll give an honest answer

    Do these fit well over hand guards, do you like them?

    I hope the owner gets them back..

    I put them over narrow hand guards, the ones about 3" tall and they fit well. Not sure about the full size ones.
    I ordered all female ones, Fred, but I guess I should have checked before I let them sleep together. You're very welcome.

    Well now I'm wondering if the extra pair are the ones I misplaced and couldn't find resulting in my ordering the other two pair. :roll eyes: Hey Fred, when's your birthday?

    Thought I had posted a glowing review of the Tusk mitts last night. I really enjoyed them and was impressed for following reasons:

    1)With less than five minutes from when Rider21 loaned them to me to our Group Ride departure I had little time to install them yet all worked out well. They would fit better with a hole or slot to accommodate rear view mirror stalks
    2)The Tusk Mitts fold flat and can be efficiently stowed on the bike whenever rain or chill threatens. Size is about that of two National Geographic magazines , very flat.
    3)They kept my hands warm.
    4)They kept my hands mostly dry after an hour or so of heavy downpour at sub-40mph speeds ( A little rain rolled down my raincoat sleeves and entered the mitts, lowering elbows helped stop this ).
    5) Price is very reasonable at ~$20 from Rocky Mtn MX

    Note: Rider21 had Scotchguarded the brand new pair he graciously loaned me. This and the newness might have helped with them staying dry inside after an hour or so.

    I would happily buy Rider's spare pair.

    It's not ours but it was a good thought.

    Fred, I'll happily give you my 3rd pair the next time we hook up. Hoping for moab but my sciatica is giving me fits and
    I'm not sure I can handle the long road miles to there and back the way things are at present. I'm trying to get in to see a back Dr. and meanwhile I'm doing exercises specifically for the sciatica but I don't know how long before I can get in. Between that and my restless leg syndrome, which allowed me less than one hour of sleep last night, I'm about to go bat shit crazy. Trying to get in to see a neurologist for the latter malady. Referrals and whatnot take too much time.
