Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Making your gloves work with cellphone

Post by stormbringer on Sun 24 Jan 2016, 7:23 pm

I just stumbled on this info on how to 'upgrade' gloves to work with a smartphone:

The product - a thread containing metal fiber:

The method - get out your sewing kit:

Get the stuff eg. here:

I don't have a smartphone, but I can see the point of this, especially for answering the phone in a hurry, when it's cold.

I was just thinking - it might be a bit more challenging with motorcycle gloves: you might have a few more layers to navigate and leather sewing is a bit of a challenge!

both of my pairs of gloves seem to work with my iphone although didn't when I first got them and definitely isn't a feature of them scratch

pretty good for dismissing messages etc (while stationary) when I'm using the GPS function.

It's amazing just how capacitive pollution is. Wink

I can't say I've ever had a problem with my bike gloves either but they are predominantly leather so it's not surprising.
