I like the Mechanix brand gloves for motorcycle riding, specifically
observed trials.  They're thinner than most regular dirt bike gloves
so I get better feel with them.

I don't use gloves when I work on bikes, but I will when I'm working
on the tractor, where the parts are heavier and might hurt my hands.
I don't like the lack of feel though, so I take them off and put
them back on when I need them and take them off....

If I were doing mechanical stuff for a living I'd come up with
a better glove solution, and I'd wear gloves (rubber or whatever) when
working with solvents.  A little carb cleaner (or pick your favorite
toxin) now and then isn't a big deal, but 8 hours a day every day
is different.
