would like white handle bars work ?

Well maybe, but then there might pop up a new thread entitled "White hands from Handlebars".

You keep referring to handlebars. I know this might seem like a stupid question, but your bars do currently have grips on them right?

I rode without gloves ONCE...

Went down in some rocks (which happens more than i'd prefer) hands got chewed up pretty good!

That will never happen again. To me there is almost nothing worse than open wounds all over your hands.

Takes forever to heal, also makes it a little difficult to get anything done at work.

Been there done that.

 

More than once. I "had to" confirm that it does hurt and is annoying, obviously.

Ok, I guess im being dumb again

Thx

 

Well, I'm guessing by that response you weren't trolling.  Sorry to make you feel dumb.  I usually tell my kids to not be afraid to ask anything, and there's no such thing as a stupid question ;)

 

You might not like gloves at first, but if you keep wearing them eventually you won't want to ride without them.  I HATED a neck brace in the beginning, but felt it would offer me more protection so I forced myself to wear it until eventually it got so that it's like trying to sleep without your favorite pillow, blanket, or whatever.  I just don't feel right riding without it.

 

Some people will tell you gloves don't really offer protection, but they do...

 

Oh, handling metals will blacken your hands...or maybe your grips just need a good cleaning ;)
