Hand Guards/Control Muffs Recommendations

After my recent ride to Montana, I realized that I really need something more to keep the wind and rain off of my hands during the winter months. What recommendations do you have regarding hand guards or control muffs that you have tried?

I've been looking at the Memphis Shades hard hand guards and a variety of muffs that fit over the controls but I'd really like to hear your personal recommendations. Thanks in advance all!

Roadspud, I have a set of JD Customs hand guards and they work very well in my opinion.
Here's a link, JD Customs & Fabrications L.L.C. ? Stainless Steel Powdercoated Coffin Cut Wind Guards.
Best of luck on your decision.

Mike,

Thanks for the information! I checked out the link and these appear to be a solid option.

Any chance that you could post a couple of pics showing what they look like installed? Do you have any issues with having enough space to use the clutch or front brake levers?

Thanks in advance!

I have heated grips. They are fantastic, but when it gets really cold, I also wear those heated gloves and jacket from HD. They are expensive but worth. They need installation in the bike and are controlled via bluetooth

Nice picture. I have a 2017 RGS with Low Z handlebars and a clearview curved windshield. When i turn the wheel there is only 1 inch clearance. How far out do the wind guards stick out? Any thoughts would be great. Thanks!

Something about your thread brings to mind Muff Divers Local #69....

The Muff Diver Local #69 is a dedicated force focused on one goal: satisfaction. This group is like the Green Berets of going south of the equator and getting business done. Unlike the Polar Bear Club, the Muff Diver Local #69 rejects jumping into a frigid environment for a short period of time. Instead, they prefer diving into a warm, friendly area and spending hours upon hours there. These trained professionals make sure to get into those hard to reach areas and get the job done. The motto "No Muff Too Tuff, We Dive At Five" is a display of their dedication to their important cause.....


its crazy where my mind goes
