Wherever you got your gloves should also have these. Might be available in those OTG/Decathlon type of stores too.

I am currently living in a desert so I don't think there would be any sellers local to me.

If all else fails, Aliexpress will definitely have it for a couple of dollars.

Sorry that I can't be of more help.

Here's some practical advice that I always refer to my friends when they say they don't want to get wet during a rain ride - http://motohive.in/motorcycle-riding...-gear-decoded/

Wow, never knew such a thing existed. Thank you. Aliexpress will take ages to reach, otherwise would have ordered boot covers and over gloves from them. Now the hunt starts to find them some were at Bangalore.

Boot covers are available with bikestuff.in as well, with a gear shifter pad for 999/-

I have got stuff from Aliexpress in 10 days. The mailing service was singapore post.

Never seen one for the glove. Searching for them. Please, do post here if you find them in Bangalore as I would need one too.

Any idea if eastern stores in commercial would have such stuff ?

Thank you. yes, they (AliExpress delivery) hapen fast at times, but can't bank on it. With luck, if I order it now, it will reach me by the end of rainy season

I don't think eastern stores will keep this - may be we will have more luck with Indialetsplay or Decathlon. I am planning to go to Decathlon this weekend, will keep you posted if I could find anything.

You are welcome. Used to live in SE Asia where it rains almost everyday throughout the year. This was the most popular riding accessory there, in addition to many riders wearing windcheater jackets reversed - with the zippers on the back!

Quite a possibility, especially if it was China mail.

I checked IndiaLetsPlay, Sports365 and Decathlon webites and found nothing. hope they have things that they don't sell online.

Else a jugaad might be the order of the day ! Or I wear my snow glove over them

Here is a different source of jugaad to help you guys out.

I use their el-cheapo nitrile gloves during detailing etc.

Good idea. Bit, I have a feeling they might get stuck while wearing them though. Also, feel from throttle might disappear.
I am thinking on different lines. Something that holds on the handlebar and is easy to get it on the handles. Slip the hands in and you are good. Like a tent for your gloved hands . Lets see if I can come up with something.

Finally, a pair of rain gloves that actually work and keep your hands dry. Enjoy the same control feel, and abrasion protection of your regular leather gloves. XXL industrial gloves fit easily over your regular leather gloves to keep your hands dry and they pack very small.
