Title: Available in SA?!
Post by: Jacobsroodt on June 12, 2019, 11:40:40 am
I did not even know that these were available in SA - until someone asked. They are.

Pair of hands protector for motorcycles and scooters. Hands protector in rain resistant nylon with an internal lining that keeps the fingers warm in all conditions. The use is universal as the pair adapts to every type of handle-bar and rear-view mirror. The structure is rather rigid for easier and quicker accessibility of the hands.

Not as expensive as you would think. PM sent.

Literally every bike in Beijing has these on in winter

I have seen people try and make these and sell them into the market a few times. I think it s quite a lekker product. Are those the Kappa ones?

Is the price a secret?

Ek sal ten minste eers 5 vingers moet verloor as gevolg van die koue voor ek daai goete aan my bike sit  :pot:

Lyk darem te veel soos oven gloves.

Things like that were widely available all those years ago when I was suffering in England.  And I said to myself countless times that I should get some.

And yet I never did! What is it they say about there being no pill for stupid?  :iamwithstupid:

Hi gents. Of course, the price is not a secret. Ask and you will get. From past experience, it is just better to provide the price on demand and not to publish. 
Nothing to hide, but it just works better. You are welcome to call me and we can have a chat on why it works better, but this is best policy for now. Hope you understand.

I have these and they are the awesome. And in conjunction with the heated grips they work great.

Yeah they might not be as fashionable as you would hope, but they work.

Bought mine last year from them for R750

 ;D :thumleft: Ja. Ek ry ook ander goed. "Horses for courses". In die voorstede ry ek scooter. Hulle is afskryfbaar. Ek huil ($$$$$$) nie as die scooters seerkry nie. Ek sal NOOIT so iets op 'n Guzzi sit nie. Ek het nog so 'n bietjie selfrespek.  :imaposer:

Ohhhh nothing like sticking your hands in a warm pair of muffs early morning on a cold winter's day :biggrin:

Used it for years in the UK every winter. Still got a pair buried somewhere between my winter bike gear.

The fashionista's are worried what they will look like,  :imaposer: when its that cold I could not give two hoots what I look like as long as I'm comfortable , especially in the middle of nowhere.

 :imaposer: People worried about what they look like with handlebar muffs. Yet they're OK wearing suits bulging with armour padding, and carthorse collars around their necks.  :imaposer:

Hell, if I was that worried what I look like I wouldn't be seen on a fucking ugly BMW, and no one would be seen dead on a Ha... er, you know.  :peepwall:

Full marks for an excellent description.

As I said, horses for courses. They are cool for scooters - the full-on Chinese look. The same you won’t see me looking like a cosmonaut on a proper bike.  The latter I leave for the real thing, if ever possible.

Yes!

Handguards is soortvan 'n vereiste want hy moet vastrek teen dit om dit van die instrumente af te hou.

Ek het dit op die nc ook gebruik met sy barkbusters  :thumleft:
