I have the OEM handguards and like most here with them recommend them for colder riding. With them, I hardly ever use my non-heated winter gloves, the summer gloves I have usually are enough (although I carry the winters just in case). I was going to spring for a set of heated gloves but don't really feel the need any longer. I do need to say that I don't ride much when the temps are below about 40 any more though as I got a touch of frostbite some years ago and my hands hurt something awful if they get cold.

Hippo Hands are a great addition if you have hand guards which prevent the problem chetc described. My HHs will be going back on the bike soon.

Just for the Storm plastics, not including the aluminum backbone assembly.
