Strange cuts on hand's after riding.

Discussion in 'New Riders and Riding Tips' started by thecptn, Nov 22, 2005.

  1. Hey all, I have just recently discovered that after riding my bike for a few hours, I get strange small cuts on my fingers, I have a set of rivet kevlar leather gloves, could these be causing it? any experiences like this? I notice my hands get very dry also.

  2. I usually carry a tube of hand moisturiser around with me as the effects of abnormal environmental conditions for my hands (both with work and riding) wreak havoc with my delicate :LOL: :shock: skin.

    Are the cuts on the palms, fingertips, knuckles or somewhere else?

    You may also have a contact or similar dermatitis (if you are new to riding, try the moisturiser first), or if you've been riding a while it may be a 'developed over time' skin condition.

    :D :D :D
  3. Yep sounds to me like your hands are probably drying out. Try some moisturiser with Vitamin E in it.

    Your local Chemist should be able to help you with an ointment to help you out. Those guys are a wealth of info. :D
  4. :shock: moisturiser for a MANS cracked hands . Soon you will advise lipstick for cracked lips . What ever happened to the AUSSIE bloke. :p :wink:
  5. Midnight's right. It sounds like some chain lube or WD-40 should fix the problem. :LOL:
  6. You know, the "you gotta change at 99" is not a myth :LOL: :LOL: :LOL:
  7. lol ill think ill pass on the moisturizer, I don't wanna bruise my manliness :LOL:
  8. hey cptn, it's for your hands, you know :LOL:
  9. He's sitting on a Ducati, wearing 'guyshadow', and eating an ice cream...
  10. Just be thankfull you don't ride a Hardley. Then you'd have oily feet after every ride.
  11. I can't believe you people. First, everyone wants gloves that keep your hands dry. Now its "boo hoo - my hands get very dry".

    Can someone help him out with a pair of leaky gloves?

    wrists? I've been riding a Virago lately. I understand.
  12. That sounds like someone I know...
