Is this an ad or a review? Sounds like an ad to me, and if so, shouldn't there be some sort of a disclaimer mixed in there?

Just wondering....

I've got a pair of the black,guantlet-style and they are great. I own about six pairs of gloves and these are easily my favorites.



And no I don't work for these guys!

Hey Buz, those guys below said your gloves are ugly and gay, just like your Harley! At least they don't leak oil and wobble. I'm glad the under 17 crowd checks in every once in a while.

Yeah well the next time I start worrying about what other people think will be the first time.



I suppose they wouldn't look so gay if they had those chrome knuckles and looked like transformer gloves. Then my 5 year-old or those two would be stealing them all the time.



I'm over the 1000 mile mark so it's time for service, air cleaner and slip-ons.

Default Lee Parks

He was the head guy over at Motorcycle Consumer News up until a couple of years ago. I used to subscribe to that overprices rag but got tired of their Harley bashing. If it was foreign it was the greatest. For instance, just because they were used to the way the turn signal work on all jap bikes when they test road the Harleys they bashed Harley's turn signal switches because they were different. Depends what you get accustomed to. Least ways, that the way I see it. Parks was and probably still is a braggart buttwipe and he can keep his overpriced gloves. I can get a pair of deer hide gloves at the tractor supply store for under $20 and that is good enough for me.

These will probably sell well with the Ducati "chicken strip" crowd.

Let me know how much of a difference the air cleaner and pipes make. Don't forget the ECU remap or Power Commander. I assume it's injected? I haven't done a thing yet, but I am thinking of pipes and cleaner. Contrary to Harley lore, I don't want mine too loud.

What we really wanna know is how well they match with your arm chaps.



I hope your oil leak issue has been resolved.



Cheers
