Good stuff guys!
As a much younger man, I did an extended lean against a roadside barrier (25+ yards) and only wore out the top layer of leather - both the glove and the jacket - against it. I've no idea why I held onto the bike that long!
Being safety oriented, (I'm a Risk Manager by trade) this really is of interest to me. It does seem that most gloves concentrate on the uppers to the detriment of the palm, pinkie and wrist areas. What is the ratio of palm to back of hand injuries? Never seen any stats, although Workers Compensation stats are all about palm and wrist, they are skewed for our purposes.
