Press release by Ultimate Motorcycling partner SpidiAs we enter the hottest motorcycle riding part of the year, it’s important to adapt our riding gear accordingly.
Riding a sportbike on a winding road it’s a pretty demanding activity; muscles try to resist the brutal accelerations, our brain focuses on the turns coming fast and veins get flooded with adrenaline boosts.It’s easy to understand why being able to regulate the body temperature is vital. The Spidi Evorider Perforated has been designed just for this: granting the best ventilation and cooling effect while maintaining Spidi’s famous safety standards.Compared to its competitors, Evorider Perforated offers localized perforations, so as to offer air circulation toward the torso while keeping intact the characteristics of resistance of the hides near the seams.This technology comes straight from Spidi’s Racing Department, after careful studies on the MotoGP and WorldSBK leathers. Moreover, Evorider Perforated has built-in Flex Tenax elastic panels on the inside of the arms and sides, designed to promote a more active riding control and reduced fatigue on the most technical twisties.Spidi’s in-house built Safety Lab selected a combination of EN1621-1 certified Warrior and Forcetech protectors for shoulders and elbows, plus the rider has the opportunity to enrich this jacket with one of the EN1621-2 Lev.1 and Lev.2 certified Warrior Back protectors.On the inside, a cozy moisture weakening lining enhances the perspiration, so that nothing can stop the rider to his most important task: ride with confidence, ride safely. #RideTrue

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 email@example.com 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!
