Gloves

Some gloves that I have used on and off the bike! When I’m out riding the streets of Kansas. I have found that the Buell Bolt Summer Textile gloves and pretty decent. They are a good summer glove with pretty good fit and feel for pretection. I also use another pair of these gloves for wrenching and hand protection in the garage area. They come in blue with white accents and full black. As well as a grey with white accents in full black. These gloves are getting hard to find these days as Buell items in whole are getting are to find as well.bolt glove

Another glove I really like is the Buell Turbulent Leather Full Finger Glove. This also is a short style hand glove. Though made of leather it works well on cooler days. Provides great protection all the way around. I have had the privledge of crashing at 70mph with these gloves on. They protected my hands really well! All my fingers and skin where fine.. Yes alittle sore but the padding did its job well. Like all other Buell items, these gloves as well are getting hard to find mainly because the are all branded with cool Buell lettering and logos. If i could find another pair of these I would buy them right away!Buell GlovesThe Bolt glove sells from any where between $10.00 – $60.00. While the Turbulent glove gos for around $40.00- $85.00. Both well worth the price to me, to saving the skin on my hands!

For the race track you would need to look into a gaunlet style glove. Which is a longer glove that covers past your wrist. These offer maxium protection on the race track for high speed. While nothing will ever save you from getting hurt or killed. Wearing the right protection is way better than having nothing on at all!

About B.J.

Bearracing Facts: Name: Bertus De Jong AKA B.J. Nick Name: Bear Date of Birth: November 17th 1978 Birth Place: Westminster, California (Huntington Beach, Ca.) area Residence: Lawrence, Kansas Email: bearracing@yahoo.com Personal Info: Been riding motorcycles since I was 5 years old... Nothing professional and mainly on the dirt. I have been riding on dirt till about the age of 16. Road my first Harley Sportster in 1994. Got little seat time on some bikes my Step Dad owned now and then. Hadn’t been on a bike since 1999 when the family moved away. In 2008 I decided it was time for a bike again. This time my own! In July of 2008 I bought a Buell XB12R Firebolt. The first time I ever sat on one or even sat on a bike in 10 years. I rode it home and all those great motorcycle feelings came right back like it was yesterday. 2 weeks later there was a Moto-St race at Heartland Park Topeka Kansas. A race track facility just a few miles from my house. I decided to ride my new Buell to the track and check out the race. There I met a great Buell racing team by the name of James Gang Racing. Paul James, Jeff Johnson, the awesome crew chief Mike Kirkpatrick, General Manager John Dahmer. They treated like they had known me for years. All because I was not part of the Buell family. From there on out, the rest is history which you can read more about me in this site.
