Yea - it's not too bad. I commute from Cincinnati to Dayton a few times a week (~50 miles). When it's below 35, riding at 70-80 for 45-60 mins gets really chilly - even with the heated handgrips and fairing!
I took a page from the rain gear I've got - the gloves I recently got (the Tourmaster gloves) have a zipper on the gauntlet that contains an extra layer (kind of like a windbreaker jacket) that goes over the gloves. It works wonders! It does enough to stop the wind from seeping through the glove when it's really really cold out.
I'd still like to get the Rev'It Celcius gloves though - but oh well!
