Ultimate MotorCycling QuickShift ReviewRoland Sands Design’s new Domino gloves feature good-looking top-grain cowhide leather with retro padded fingers, giving them a cross-genre form and function that is appropriate for cruising and sport riding.
A short gauntlet glove with an elastic cuff, there are dual hook-and-loop wrist adjustments for a secure, personal fit. Heavy-duty stitching promises a long glove life.Plentiful rivets give the hard-nosed look a cruiser rider wants, and the metal will protect your hands should they be sliding down the pavement unexpectedly.I wore these gloves on warm days in the 80s, and with thin glove liners on a wet day in the lower 40s. In both cases, and everything in-between, the RSD Domino gloves fit the bill. The venting on the fingers lets just enough air in on warm days and the relaxed fit leaves room for glove liners when the temperature drops.The pre-curved structure and strategically padded palm add comfort on any sort of motorcycle, and I don’t hesitate to don the Dominos when I’m on an Aprilia Tuono V4 or a Harley-Davidson Softail Slim. As unpretentious as the motorcycles that come out of RSD, the Domino gloves are an instant hit.The Roland Sands Design Domino Gloves are available in black or tobocco, and carry an MSRP of $160.

This week, in the first segment Editor Don Williams talks to us about the new Kawasaki Versys 650 LT. It’s the middleweight ADV style machine that uses the same 650 parallel twin motor as the Ninja 650, so it’s an excellent performer in a user-friendly, good looking package.
In the second segment, I chat with one of my dearest industry friends—now retired Honda PR executive, Jon Seidel. Jon’s fascinating career spans some 30 years with Big Red, and gave him some great experiences with some incredible machines. I was fortunate enough to be invited on many of the press launches that he organized. His new project is documenting and saving many of the old archives from years gone by—and incidentally, if you have anything that may be of value to the project, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll pass it all on to Jon.
So on that note, from all of us here at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode!
