Anyone know of a source for mitts for a 1500 with CB? Hippo Hands no longer has 'em in stock.

Check a ATV shop for their variant, not sure they will look, but most shops have them in stock and SHOULD allow you to test fit them. Let us know if they work !

Already went the ATV route and they're too small.

Have you considered heated grips? I am installing my HOT Grips this week.
Currently, I have plastic ATV handguards that I modified to fit my GL1500, but even with good insulated hunting gloves, my hands get a bit cold on 20 degree mornings. My HOT Grips will cure that. And they are nice on rainy days, too.
Between the handguards, decent gloves and grip heaters, I am all set.
Oh, and I'm finishing up installing seat heaters, too.

Best wishes.

Doesn't normally get hot enough often enough to install heated grips.

Instead I installed Baker Wings on the mirrors then cut some removeable black foam sanding blocks to fit the holes in the mirror mounts. That, coupled with the new heated gloves and jacket liner, I think I have resolved my problem.

Thanks to all for their suggestions.
