Another 4 pairs today.. LOL.

However, we're absolutely happy with 1 set.

Sadly for me, they're more than i wanted to pay for gloves ideally. But as they really do fit beautifully, i think i'll have to bite the bullet and keep em.

Return raised for the other 1000 pairs to send back to Sportsbikeshop.

New gloves time, my old ones are beginning to shed plastic bits , look a bit frayed and are probably 10+ years old. I always like alpinestars gloves, though on this occasion their sizing was a bit skewed (had to go for XL, normally L).

I find they take a while to bed in, but once that happens the fit is fantastic, it’s not helped by my somewhat wonky little finger.

The other little finger is actually a bit shorter due to a door! This one is wonky due to a rather nasty infection and 3 tendon flush ops in 7 days ( I have pictures but apparently they make people ill).
