Tired of dropping your gloves

Tired of dropping your gloves at the gas station, drive through, pay booth etc
I used two strips of "fuzzy half of velcro" with the glue sticky back (fuzzy half is easier to clean, wash and dry then the velcro half with hooks)

LOL clever. I just stick mine together up on the dash in the windshield

That's so when the husband comes home early, Damir already has his gloves ready! LOL >:) You should have bought bigger size gloves and velcro'ed them to the grips! HaHa

Good idea, though a lot of guys cover most of their tank with clear soft plastic material to keep from ever having a scratch, so I don't guess they are going to stick that velcro on there.

Since I also now have an FJR "dash shelf", that makes for a secure place to tuck the gloves in for a moment or two.

I usually toss them on the ignition, between the bars. I usually drop them when I'm fiddling with them to put them on or I've just taken them off.

Tempted to tie a string to each one long enough to route through my sleeves, like my snow gloves when a kid.

Me too!

One thing holds true.... If you ever drop your gloves while sitting on the bike, NEVER lean over to pick them up! You'll be the first to be killed by your own FJR using your cranium as crash protection.

Yikes. I’ve picked mine up while sitting on the bike many times. Good advice though.
