I use winter gloves, they are ultra soft and warm. Feel like two pairs of gloves, one into another.
Downside: no protection. But anyway, who runs and leans on super cold streets? They are fine for commuting.

I would buy some CE approved winter riding gloves.

youll get better feel than having an extra pair of gloves and probably less hassle. alot of people here run them all year as its always kinda cold even in the summer.

I just rest the gloves on my end can between stops haha

Over on the FJR forum, you'll see good comments about Gerbing and Warm'n'safe for high-quality 12V heated gear. Gerbing is the older more established brand, but perhaps a little bit more spotty on quality comments. Warmnsafe gets universally high grades.

If you really start loading up on the heated gear though you might want to add an LED voltage gauge. i don't know what the excess alternator output is on the ZX6R's but heated gear can pull a big load, ESPECIALLY if you're already running HIDs.

The '08 FJR I ride has a few hundred extra watts of output but even with that I run only jacket and gloves, and have LED auxiliary lights to avoid too big a load on the electrical system.

But I totally agree - wish I'd added it many years prior - you can run freeway speeds at 25F and its very nice - warm core and hands with a cool wind flowing up under your helmet is like paradise!
