I’m giving a “whole lotta glove” today with not one, but two, reviews posted up in the past 24 hours with this one coming by way of webbikeworld.com. In this review I take an in-depth look at the Druid D1 Long gloves from Dainese. These track oriented gloves offer good protection wrapped in high quality materials with robust construction.
These gloves have lots of hard parts as befitting this style of glove as well as some smart looking colorways giving these gloves a lot of appeal on the safety and style side of things.
Are they perfect? No.
There are a couple of issues that cropped up in my review but these can be somewhat subjective. Hit the link and view full review to found out if the Druid D1 Long gloves are right for you.
Dainese D1 Druid Long Gloves Hands-On Review
My review of the AGV Sport Podium racing suit has just been published over at webBikeWorld.com. I received this suit from the editor at webBikeWorld when I needed some racing leathers to wear at the Continental Tire Sport Attack 3 press event earlier this year. This turned out to be a great piece of gear for the track day types as well as those sport riders looking for great protection on the street.

Racing got underway here at Barber Motorsports Park today with the first of two rounds of MotoAmerica racing here in Birmingham. It was a hot day here in Alabama and the racing was even hotter. Really sounds like a pun but it’s an accurate description. Competition just seemed a bit more intense here this year versus past years and the new KTM series again was the most fun to watch, and shoot, today. Below are photos from the track today. Enjoy!
MotoAmerica last year 2015
Prepping right now to head down to Barber Motorsports Park in Leeds Alabama. This will be the 6th year I’ve gone down there from Nashville to cover the races. This year is the second year of the newly minted MotoAmerica series which has taken over from the AMA ProRacing flag. Many of the same riders one has watched over the years as AMA racers are still around and now we have the new “kids” running in the KTM RC390 series. This is for me one of the most exciting things to happen in America road racing for a long time. With riders age 14 to 22, this new series will be the incubator for fresh talent to move into serious road racing.
Having all the same base machines a a wide variety of experience makes for some fantastic racing and exciting action. While the skill levels may vary, the desire and passion to win is equally high among all the riders I’ve seen. I’ll be posting photos from these and the other races this weekend here on motorcycleWords. Keep an eye on this space and watch our MotorcycleWords on Instagram and MotorcycleWords on Facebook feeds for all the action.
