Other bhpians have already told you to wear proper riding gear. One more addition to that is, buy gauntlet gloves. They offer more protection and overall comfort. Short gloves do not support or give adequate protection to wrists in the event of a crash.

Anyone experienced this before? For this long?

Anyone know what to do, medically?

Please check you cholesterol levels. My dad had his middle finger numb for some time without any reason. His own brother is a doctor and initially we found it funny, but after doing a battery of tests, we found that his cholesterol was quite high.

After good diet and exercise and some medication, it was bought under control. Currently dad has no cholesterol related issue, but has develop a healthy habit of waking 10k+ steps a day. Fitness is definitely keeping him more happy and free from any health worries.

Hi I had the same buzzy numb sensation for quite while after my ride. The KTM D390 does buzz a lot at high rpms.
I was wearing gloves, but after a 4000 km in 7 days I was glad to walk away with a buzzing hand. A lot of rest later (20 days) it is nearly normal, although the finger tips are a bit numb.
Do by all means go to a neurologist and get it checked up.
