Some riders love Harley-Davidson for everything they're not-- that is, technologically cutting edge or blatantly future-friendly-- but even the most dedicated traditionalists aren't above bolting a smartphone or GPS unit to the handlebars.
Harley now has that paradoxical demographic covered with two new gloves that incorporate touchscreen-friendly fingertips. The women's Velocity RCS Waterproof Textile Full Finger Gloves ($75, P/N 97346-13VW) and men's Burning Skull Full-Finger Gloves ($55, P/N 98252-13VM) enable touchscreens to be operated without ditching the mitts.
There's no mention of armoring or abrasion resistance in their product descriptions, but if you're willing to ditch some safety for convenience (and gotta have that bar & shield branding), you may want to check them out.
