Pit Bull’s new Pit Crew Tire Wedge is a height-adjustable device that allows one person to easily align and steady motorcycle wheels so axles are easy to remove and install.The Tire Wedge can be used with most Pit Bull front and rear stands made in the last past 20 years. It quickly attaches without hardware with a solid press fit. Once in place below a tire, height can be set between 0.75 to 4.9 inches with a twist of its adjustment knob–even with gloved hands. This positioning allows wheel spacers and brake-caliper mounts to be perfectly lined up so axles slide in and out without binding.
The first of five innovative new products being introduced by Pit Bull in 2015, the Pit Crew Tire Wedge makes changing tires easier than ever. Made from steel, zinc-plated to fend off the elements, like the company’s legendary stands, it’s built to outlast any motorcycle and comes with a lifetime warranty.Designed and manufactured in America, the Pit Crew Tire Wedge is available exclusively from Pit-Bull.com or by calling 256-533-1977.Pit Bull Tire Wedge Defining Features:
Allows axles to quickly slide in and out without binding
Quickly aligns axle spacers and brake-caliper mounts

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!
