I have summer gloves and insulated gloves for cold weather. What I'd really like is a set of hand guards, but they don't make them for sportbikes
Investigate the handguards used on the Suzuki V-Stroms. I adapted them for my FZ6.

The right went on with almost no modifications, just had to put a few 1/4" washers as spacers, and filed the outboard-ends (for both) to fit the FZ bar-ends.

The left, I had to construct a bracket from a wormgear clamp, 1/4" rod, and a 1/4"x3/4" bolt, and file to clear the clutch-adjuster nut.

You'll need the handguards (about $11 ea., depending on your dealer) and the fulcrum bolt for the brake. If you have a hydraulic clutch, probably won't have to fabricate a thing, but you'll need another fulcrum bolt for that side too.

I have a craptastic pair of gauntlets that I somehow continually fail to replace. And since I haven't really invested in any other serious winter riding gear I generally layer up, hug the engine and freeze my ass off.

Can you show me some pics of how those MSR Wind Deflectors mount on your bars? Do they mount in front of (shield) the clutch and front brake levers? The bike I want to put them on has helibars and good-sized levers.

MSR Wind Deflectors. They strap right on any bike, and, with a pair of cold weather gloves, no worries.

Here's what they look like:

MSR Hand Deflectors - Chaparral Motorsports

They're big pieces of nylon-backed platic that strap-on with a nylon strap and a helmet-type fastener. I do not know if that will work with your bike. I use mine on my Buell Lightning and my dirtbikes. The Concours doesn't need them.

Here's a link to cheap heated grips:

Get some High pipes for that Tuono, should take care of the frozen azz part. The main plus with my brothers old 996, heated seat (though the only temp control was the ignition switch) and he could reach back and grap a pipe with his glove when he really needed to thaw some digits.

It comes with high pipes and idles at about 200 degrees on a warm day :) -- I should bite the bullet and by new gloves, an aerostitch suit and/or some electrics though...
