I am pretty much a year round rider here in southern Indiana. Keep everything warm during the cold weather except my fingers. Can anyone recommend a good heated glove. Looking at either battery or 12 Volt from my majesty. Would appreciate anyone's recommendation.
One way to keep your fingers -- and other extremities -- warm is to keep your torso warm. When your core starts getting cold, it shuts off the heat to the rest of your body.

That is so very true. I have been pleasently surprised to find out how "comfortable" I can ride when temperatures drop into the 20's by wearing a leather jacket under my winter coat (ski pants and thermals help the legs, but that's a different topic). Keeping your chest warm keeps you heart pumping warm blood and helps to keep the air in your lungs warm. The warms the rest of your body, a bit. My fingers still freeze, but that's just me. It doesn't take long to warm up once I reach my destination, either.
Do those gloves plug in to the bike or battery powered? I could use some heated gloves sometimes on my commute. 30 mins in the morning is really all I need, so rechargeable battery packs would cover that.
