ditto on Tourmaster gloves and everything else they make
of all the things that can happen on a bike, messing up your hands would be one of the worst.
Get motorcycle gloves, designed for the slide, not for the ride, with velcro gauntlets covering the wrists, so the pavement cannot pull them off your hands.
And you did not mention boots - designed with ankle protection. If your foot ever gets under the bike, you need some serious armor.
BTW, gloves are one of the things you need to go buy in a local store front. Gloves, boots, helmets.... they must fit well or they are unusable. Once you have one pair that you know fits you properly, you can buy the next (same) pair online in a few years if you need to save a few bucks, but believe me, XL does not equal XL from every company that makes gloves.
