Love the ingenuity....Before all this specialized gear came along, we'd fit several newspaper sections inside our jacket for more insulation....BTW...I, too, am having the same issue with cold hands....the older I get, the more it bothers me....I installed heated grips yesterday and will find out on this morning's commute how they work...Riders with their hands behind windshields seem to do well with them....not so good on other bikes,,,,That's why your post with the milk jugs caught my eye...

With a good pair of Handguards,winter gloves & glove liners I've been good rides at temperatures as low as 34*. Most likely I won't ride below freezing unless a emergency.

Thanks to all for the replies, the Giving guards do seem to make a fair bit of difference, still cold but liveable for up to an hour at 2C.

I'm using a couple thin silk gloves inside my regular alpinestar gp pro gloves and It's not working well! Plus my fingers have some pain if I do long rides -two hours or more- this way probably because too much compression. I'll try handguards and Omni cruise throttle lock when open roads/highways for keeping both hands outside the cold wind. I make pauses every half hour more or less with my hands touching the exhaust for a while, cheaper than heated gear/grips haha! I've looked at muffles as other solutions on the web, but I haven't decide yet.
Have a look at the new Puig handguards for the 2016 year model, can't tell you the price at this moment as I think It's a new product.

check out handlebar mitts. they're big and ugly, but a guy I knew who spent 4 years riding his motorcycle around the world said it was the best thing to keep the hands warm. they're also cheap. I saw some for $20 on ebay.

MITTENS are the big equalizer.

Snow Ski MITTENS to do me for upper 40sF and low 50sF.

Add Liner gloves for upper 30s and lower 40s.

Add those chemical hand warmers between the liners and mittens for lower 30sF.

I seldom ride below 30F, but sometimes upper 20sF (same thing Mittens, Liners, and Chemical Hand Warmers).

Amount of gear I use also depends on how far and how long I am riding.

PS: I am not into Electric Gloves or Electric Clothing, some folks are. Different Strokes for Different folks.
