Less Is More
Bob Rutten, from Product Development and Promotions and Marketing at A’ME Grips, has a heated-grip glove tip: “A big heavy winter glove is not ideal because they don’t let the heat get through. There are some watercraft gloves that work well with some neoprene protection against cold and wind on the outside [top] and a synthetic leather on the inside, which allows the heat to get through but doesn’t trap the sweat.”

Learn From An Expert
Auto clutches can actually make you (an experienced or a first-time rider) a better manual clutch user. Al Youngwerth, owner of Rekluse, explains, “You learn that a little bit of slip, at low rpm, at high torque load, really smooths out everything. Hop on a new KTM 500 or Husaberg 501. They chug massively at low rpm. If you roll on the throttle hard in third gear from 2,000 rpm, it shakes the whole bike violently. Just a little bit of pressure on the clutch lever really smooths out everything — the suspension, the traction, everything.”
Honda Clutch Arm: $39.99
