After cancelling one too many rides because of frozen fingers, I've decided to get something to warm my digits. But should I get heated gloves or heated grips? I imagine heated gloves will give better all-over warmth but I'm not sure they'd be as protective in an off as proper gloves with heated grips. Heated gloves have the bonus of being easily transferable to any future bikes I might ride. What's the verdict?
Heated gloves or heated grips?

I have to admit to not trying heated gloves but the drawback to me would seem that they will either need to run off batteries, with a limited life span, or be wired into the bike with the wires being routed around your clothing.
I do love heated grips. My VFR800 had them - original Honda items that still worked even when the bike was 14 years old. I also have heated grips on my 1200RT and was out in summer gloves at 6 degrees this weekend. The heated seat on the RT is great too )
How about heated inners?
Can still use your favourite outer gloves but your hands will stay toasty warm.
Keis do some decent heated inner gloves.
Heated grips rule. Also, bar muffs rule in the winter.
