BTW, here are a few pictures of the GS750 project. Going to do a streetfigther/cafe on this one.

How is the finger length on those? My normal issue with gloves is that they fit in width but not in length.

For day-to-day wear, this isn't a problem, but on a bike or a motorcycle where you are putting weight on the joint between thumb and forefinger, it gets uncomfortable if the glove is too short.

Overall, the glove is constructed very well but is austere in it's styling. The armor is hidden. These go for $60 shipped to your door.

This is my personal pair after a year of road use, still going strong.

Ah, unfortunate that the armored is not ribbed, really liked the look... definitely will keep them in mind when my bike gets delivered though.

In case anyone is interested, there is still an time to sign up for the Skully beta. They'll start picking people in February. http://t.co/w0CftxXtnQ

Yeah, I got an email recently letting me know they'd received my application.

My sense is that betas will end up with riders who have a strong presence in social media and the 'net.

Do you think posting in the "Would You Hit It?" thread counts?

Down to two bikes now - sold the CBR600RR on Friday. Now the tough part - finding a nice, stock late 70s CB550.

I wonder if the rider was ok? He landed pretty hard on his back...



Anywho... Here's a nice little Triumph.

In that high side video the rider got super lucky and walked away with only some bad bruises, or so Reddit says... Even still, looks like he landed squarely on his back and slid which is damn lucky all things considered.

Found a photo of me from 1982 just after having ridden from Texas to San Francisco and back on my '82 Honda CB750F.

It's frightening to see a grown man just thrown like a doll.
