Handlebar muffs
« on: December 15, 2014, 08:36:05 pm »
Has anyone fitted a set of handlebar muffs to the trophy? If so what make?
(Have a little 1500 mile dash to do on xmas day, so want to keep fingers warm as)

I understand your concern about  possibly needing them, but I have found the heated grips to be more than adequate on some very cold rides
Now got Black TTSE
Used to have Pre-Launch Trophy - lowest recorded Trophy VIN

The grips are ok, but if raining outside of hand gets cold, and my left hands not in best condition

Understood

If you cannot get the muffs, plenty of spare gloves then?

Used oxford muffs on the tiger they would stretch over the guards but with difficulty.  They were very good though.  Especially with heated grips on as well.  You have to be careful they don't push badk on the levers that is why i stretched them over the guards.

I bought a set last fall but I don't know what brand they are. I can't find my order & I don't see a brand on them. But they look like the ones at the below web site. The only label I can see on them says Tucker Rocky p/n 65-025-010402-11. I'm not sure this is the part number for the mitts or the fabric.

I put them on & they seemed like they would work. I think I may have used them once or twice. They are a little cumbersome but they keep the wind off when the temperature is down in the single digits Fahrenheit. We got snow & the roads were too icy to ride safely and I had to park the bike until spring.

I froze my hands or nearly so many years ago riding in cold weather and ever since then my left hand especially gets really cold easily.
