Delta 415 Premium Jeans TestWith spring in full bloom, I was finally able to try out the new Delta 415 jeans from Alphyn Industries, Inc. that I obtained over the winter.
Hand made in San Francisco, the Delta 415 jeans are not per se an official riding pant in terms of padding, but they definitely have the motorcycle/cyclist in mind.The jeans are more a hybrid…something you would be comfortable wearing out for an evening with friends as well as a weekend cruise to get lunch.The jeans are a deep indigo color and are made from wax coated 100-percent cotton denim. The thigh area on the right leg actually has an outer zip pocket (3×5 inch) that is designed to store and protect your cell phone.So what you say? Well, when you unzip the pocket (patent pending WEARCOM) and open the flap, you are able to see and control your phone without removing it from the pocket.Access to the screen is made possible through the special advanced touchscreen film and from what I’ve seen so far, it works very well…even after washing the pants multiple times.The pocket also has a button hole so you can thread your headphone wire from the pocket. I didn’t have to use it because my helmet is equipped with Bluetooth.I’ve gotten multiple compliments from other riders, and the Delta 415 Premium jeans seem to be getting better the more I wear them. I find the Wearcom pocket to be an excellent accessory when cruising around town. It’s perfect for listening to music and accessing Google Maps when trying to find that new restaurant I’m meeting friends at.Alphyn Industries, Inc., has other products available so if you are interested in some new denim head on over to alphynind.com and see what you can find.
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.
