son, yer wrists wont get alll buggered up in an accident...

When you fall and slide your jacket sleve may tend to ride up your arm as you scrape across the ground. W/O wrist guards those boney knubs on your wrists will get torn up. just added protection.

And wind. If you've got guantlet style gloves...your sleeves are tucket inside thus no wind up in your piece.

What's with the Mad Max styling of all the gloves though? Where's a good place to look for solid gloves without the giant chunks and bright colors?

What are you looking for? Straight black or what?

I've got a pair of Icon tarmac gloves, they are non-gauntlet style and super comfy... very good looking. I'm more of a "conservative bling" type of guy.

Right now I guess I'm just finding stuff I don't like...
I like the idea of the extended cuff, and the armor in the knuckles and back. It just seems like most of the gloves with the cuff are really bulky if you try to do anything without taking them off.

I almost like the alpinestar sp-2 in black, but I don't care for the logos and perf.

Well some of those knobs are more then just decoration. Some cover air vents that keep your hands cool and dry, others allow you to hit a brick wall and not feel it (or Concrete) if you're interested in something simple look for Ski gloves, but then they won't offer as much protection.

They aren't made to do stuff with them on other than ride a motorcycle. And maybe knock someone out.

Do you guys ever have the problem of having the sleeve of your suit being too long and thus results in loose fitting of your gloves?

No. In fact I've never heard of sleeves being too long. Too short, yes.

With todays gloves and the straps on them. Long sleeves would just get pushed back. It might be difficult to get the gauntlet strap secure tho.
