Drying out gloves - May 28, 2010, 11:05 AM

I left my A*'s on top of my car last night and it rained like a mofo. Is it kosher to throw them into the dryer or should I let them air dry?

air dry, hang them up and get a fan.

Rode in my leathers during a down pour. Dried them up no prob.

dont put them in dryer...Just set them outside let them air dry...good to have backups for when you gloves get wet...

...cough...except most people are RIDING when theirs gets soaked.


What do you value more? Life or Image?

You god damn right I am!

I ended up using a hairdryer on cool setting for about 15 minutes on each hand and they dried out enough to be comfortable for a short ride.

Tucking newspaper into wet shoes and gloves works like a charm. Dry in no time.

Christmas lights work well also. Enough heat to dry and you don't have to worry about it getting too hot.
