Keeping your hands safe is extremely important, and the best way to do that is to invest in some high-quality motorcycle gloves. If, or more likely when, you take a spill a sturdy pair of gloves can save you a lot of grief. I know guys who've messed their hands up so bad they had to have someone else wipe their butt for a while. Don't be that dude. Pay for some nice gloves. Here are three pairs I'd recommend.
Milwaukee Premium Leather Perforated Cruiser Gloves
These perforated leather gloves are constructed of tough leather and are attractive, simple gloves suitable for any street riding you do. While they would probably look best with a cruiser-style motorcycle, they're simple enough to be suitable for any motorcycle. The best thing about these gloves? The price. They're dirt cheap for the quality, and while you may need to wear them a while before you break them in, once they're good, they'll last a long time. They do run a bit small, though, so consider ordering a little bigger than you normally would or prepare yourself for a long break-in period where you stretch the leather.
StrongSuit 20300-L Voyager Leather Motorcycle Gloves
Another sturdy, basic option that will look good no matter what or where you're riding, the StrongSuit 20300-L Voyager gloves are form fitted and pre-curved, to make breaking them in even easier. Like the Milwaukee gloves, they tend to run a bit small so consider buying larger than usual, or stretching these gloves out. Also, affordable, these gloves have reinforced leather over the knuckles and some other key areas, to help keep your hands safe no matter what.
Roland Sands Design Barfly Gloves
Roland Sands Design makes some of the best gear in the business and that extends to motorcycle gloves. The Barfly gloves would pair nicely with a number of other Roland Sands products and are made from some seriously tough perforated leather. While the gloves are a bit more expensive than the two options above, they're also much more comfortable, making them the best out of this group of gloves. If you can afford to drop the extra dough, you can get some seriously good motorcycle gloves.
