For a newby are gloves going to make it more difficult to control throttle? will be buying a pair soon, safety first.

No. On the contrary. Gloves help grip the throttle if the palm of the gloves are a soft leather or rubber. You wont have to consistently adjust your grip.

What he said! I rode for a few days without a pair of gloves. My hands were actually getting a little raw from the constant, slight slippage between my hand and the grips. I noticed a big improvement when I got some gloves.

My favorite gloves are my mesh summer gloves. They only have leather on the palm, and it is very soft leather. My winter gloves have insulated palms, and I do lose some feedback with them.

A good pair of gloves are invaluable in my opinion. I have bought motorcycle gloves before that did not feel right, and have never worn them since. Oh well, I would rather spend more coin until I get the right gloves than wear the wrong gloves.

I have a pair of cooler weather gloves that have kept my hands warm when below 40* while doin 80. They also still provide me with excellent feel of the controls. Surprisingly, they were only around $30. Gloves do not have to be expensive to be good ones. Just be prepared to shop around some.

I couldn't imagine getting hit in the hand with a rock or a bug without gloves on. Hurts with them on.

I think I ride better with them on. I've ridden down to the gas station by me without them a couple times and it just didn't seem to be as comfortable.

I gotta say, I hate riding without gloves. My grip is better, and the skin of my hands is protected from rocks, pebbles, and from being rubbed raw if I wasn't wearing them. It just feels wrong to ride without gloves to me.

Bottom line, my grip is worse without gloves.

I use these when it is warm out

And these when it is raining or cold out.

The alpinestars are a true motorcycle glove, they are pre-curved and really comfortable. The mechanix gloves I like they are light and allow airflow, just suck that they are not water proof.
