The textile gloves I believe are the Five RS3.they are more a summer glove but with hand guards to keep the wind chill off are not bad...even better with heated grips.

Oo, they look comfy. I rode without my heated grips on a couple of mornings ago. They were back on at 75% today!

Exactly. But even cars aren't killing as many bugs as they used to--because insect populations have been plummeting for reasons that many people don't like to admit are real. Not to go on a tangent, but I'm a beekeeper and I'm often asked if vegans can eat honey. This is the blog post I wrote last year to try and address the issue: https://www.mitecalculator.com/bee-yard-blog/2019/11/17/is-honey-vegan

Not enough real honey to go round, good news that vegans can't eat it  :001:

It's impossible to be a real vegan. Insects die in food production.  :173: Especially if they come near my food  :008:

I liked that. Very thoughtful. I'm in the honey isn't vegan camp, but not super strongly.
