Racer Gloves Mikey Do-It-All Motorcycle GlovesRacer Gloves USA, which prides itself on having the best-fitting gloves you can buy, now has a glove that is an ideal fit into several categories.
The Racer Mickey is equally at home on the street, dual sport or as an off-road glove. One glove really can do it all, according to the Austrian glove manufacturer’s exclusive North American agent.The Mickey is a mid-length sport glove featuring a combination of leather and mesh construction. A Clarino palm with silicone finger-grip diamonds makes for a better feel on the controls, even when conditions get a little wet. Better protection comes from Super-Fabric covered scaphoid and knuckle protectors.“With its hard shell knuckle and palm protection combined with leather, mesh and nylon fabrics, the Mickey makes for a great combo of protection and ventilation,” explains Racer Gloves USA’s Lee Block.“We really like the Mickey since it fits into several categories,” adds Block. “For example, we just finished a 300-mile dual sport ride wearing the Mickey and the glove exceeded even our expectations. It provided plenty of protection, was not hot and with its great fit, no blisters!The Mickey is much more than an off-road glove, though. “We have customers who love it for the street due to its tough look and protection.” Don’t forget about the fit: “Our products are guaranteed to be the best fitting gloves you’ve tried, or your money back,” proclaims Block. “The Mickey really is one of our favorite gloves for street use, but we really like it for dual sport/off-road riding with its great knuckle and palm protection.”Racer Gloves Features:

Aprilia Tuono 660 Factory + Steve ’Stavros’ Parrish
byMotos and Friends by Ultimate Motorcycle
Hello everyone and welcome once again to Ultimate Motorcycling’s weekly podcast—Motos and Friends. My name is Arthur Coldwells.
Our first segment features the new Aprilia Tuono 660 Factory. Senior Editor Nic de Sena brings us his report on the flagship version of Aprilia’s upright middleweight machine. He gives us insight into whether it’s worth spending the extra money on the Factory version, and also of course, whether this sporting Aprilia is really the motorcycle for you.
The next guest segment of Motos and Friends is brought to you by the faster and most technologically advanced, 2023 Suzuki Hayabusa—one of the most iconic sportbikes ever. Check it out in person at your local Suzuki dealer now, or visit suzukicycles.com to learn more.
In this segment, Associate Editor Teejay Adams chats with (arguably) one of the most interesting Suzuki race riders of all time. the iconic RG500 alongside teammate double World Champion Barry Sheene. The two were almost as famous for their exploits off-track, as for their success on it. Those were the days! Steve also raced the Isle of Man TT for about ten years where he won 13 Silver Replicas, and got a podium finish. His insight into that particular brand of mayhem are fascinating.
But there’s waaay more to Steve Parrish than his motorcycle racing. He is also the most successful Semi-Truck racer ever, and, little known piece of useless trivia—he’s my birthday twin: 24th February. He is a natural entertainer and you can’t miss his recounting of the world’s most entertaining—and arguably terrifying—double-decker bus ride ever. If any of you were actually on that hell-ride then we’d love to hear from you!
