Weise Victory Motorcycle GlovesWeise Victory gloves, crafted in supple, rich tan-colored goat leather may look vintage, but pack a host of subtle, modern features.
Creatively designed and rigorously tested, Weise – which means wise in German and rhymes with “nice”- has been manufacturing motorcyclist-specific jackets, pants, boots and gloves since 1987. Recently launched in America, its 75-piece product line of premium, mostly all-weather riding gear is tailored for a great fit on men and women.A standout in Weise’s collection, the Victory gloves’ classy, old-school cool is defined by a lack of raised venting and protruding carbon fiber cladding.Instead, they have sleek, molded knuckle armor under the leather that sandwiches memory foam and additional reinforcement built into the finger joints.Just one of Weise’s 32 gloves, the mid-length Victory’s elemental, tough-yet-soft leather and external stitching provide amazing comfort and break in quickly to form a strong personal bond with clutch and throttle hands of all sizes.For great grip and even more protection, the Victory has an extra layer of Chamude material that goes from palm to wrist and is secured with a Velcro-backed retaining strap. A handy rubber pull-tab allows the gloves to be donned quickly.Victory gloves are available in XS – 4XL, which works out to sizes between 7 and 11.Like all Weise products, they’re backed by a no-quibble, two-year warranty. A black version of the Victory’s look and protection can be found in Weise’s very similar Vagos glove.For more information about Victory gloves and other Weise riding gear, visit TheKeyCollection.co.uk, call 203-597-8686, or email Admin@Fowlers.co.uk.North American dealers wanting to carry Weise Motorcycle Clothing and the distributor’s other great brands – Milano Sport riding gear, Ugly Fish sunglasses and the 150-item Gear Gremlin motorcycle accessory line – can visit FowlersDistribution.com, call 203-597-8686 or email Admin@Fowlers.co.uk for more information.Release submitted by PutterPowerMedia
Suzuki V-Strom 1050 DE + Scott Casey – Living with PTSD and the Rolling Barrage
byMotos and Friends by Ultimate Motorcycle
Hello everyone and welcome once again to Motos and Friends, a weekly Podcast brought to you by the editorial team at Ultimate Motorcycling.
My name is Arthur Coldwells.
The new Suzuki V-Strom DE has just been announced, and Avery Innis, Training and Publications Manager from Suzuki Motor USA, is just the expert to explain its nuances to us. The V-Strom has always been a superb, yet inexpensive platform, and the new DE variant gets more serious about ADV riding. I find out from Avery whether the new upgrades are worthwhile; and the place that the new V-Strom has in the current market.
Our second segment covers a subject that’s a little more serious than usual.
Many veterans and first responders suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, aka PTSD.
Scott Casey—himself a sufferer—decided to try and help his fellow vets, and started a cross-Canada charity ride in 2016 called the ‘Rolling Barrage’. It was—and is—incredibly successful.
It’s not just a tremendous ride. The Rolling Barrage is a place for like-minded sufferers and their supporters to ride together. They get some serious “wind therapy” whether it’s on just a stop, or a leg of the ride, one day, a weekend, or even the whole ride. Scott opens up with Associate Editor Teejay Adams about his personal history, and how he came to create such a brilliant and worthy real-world event that truly helps.
The Rolling Barrage is a supportive network of brothers and sisters. To quote Scott Casey: “this is the family you never knew you had”.
It was a Nation exploding into civil war. In 1992, the collapse of the former Yugoslavia triggered an international armed conflict that would last more than 3 years and eventually see nearly 100,000 people killed. Canadians were thrown into what was declared a peacekeeping mission, but it wasn’t. They were going well beyond the rules of engagement that were provided by the UN. Told by Scott Casey, Former Canadian Peacekeeper.
