Check out the Gyde/Gerbings line. They make, or I hope they still do, a line of lightweight heated gloves that have heated elements on both sides (palm and back). I have some and they are fine for cooler temps.
Hope this helps: Jim

Warm & Safe also make great heated gear. You might check on Amazon, also. They have some battery powered gloves that may suit.

Besides heated gloves or grips, I found that long runs were giving me numb fingers from the vibration. I bought one of these moulded cruise clips that fits onto the throttle, it takes a bit of getting used to but it allows me to release the pressure on my fingers and use my palm instead. By getting it in the right place it it easy to accelerate and decelerate without having to grip the throttle continuously. https://www.amazon.com/Monster-Moto...amp;s=gateway&sr=8-2-spons&psc=1

The Beemer has wiring for the optional heated grips. I've never tried them, but I no longer ride in cold weather.
I tried one of those plastic cruise clips a couple of years ago on the ride to Barber. It worked nicely, but fell off the end of the bar on the ride home.


Stepping on others doesn't make you stand tall.
