Upbeat Bikernet Weekly News for January 2, 2020

By General Posts

Hey,

I like this year already. It’s going to be whacky and wonderful. It’s just the 2nd day of January and the world is back in business. We’re all doing what we did a couple of weeks ago, going about taking the trash out, feeding the dog and heading off to work.

Hell, I have all the Deadlines for Cycle Source Magazine etched into my 2020 Pin-Up calendar. We need to break the mold for 2020. Do something crazy. I’m going to go back to Bonneville this year with something completely different.

And I’m trying to buy a little place in Deadwood, SD and change up my life some. I hope everyone finds new challenges, new hope, new adventures and new love in 2020.

5-BALL RACING LEATHERS ROUND-UP

By General Posts

Check out the entire line at 5-Ball Racing Leathers

http://shop.bikernet.com/

First, all of our leathers come with two deep gun pockets, which are great for cameras, phones, tools, you name it. We also have a media pocket on the inside back. It’s great for a file, taxes, the latest Cycle Source magazine or divorce papers.

Our Jak shirts come sleeveless, 5/8 sleeve and full sleeve. They are cool for the taller guy and for hot temps. I’ve ridden to Sturgis several times with my 5/8 sleeve. It’s a break when it’s hot. When it’s cold I added a sweatshirt and thermal and was still good to go. They have tails, so they are longer.

I worked with Debi at Bartels’ H-D to create the perfect women’s Hoodie jacket (Racy Women’s 5-Ball Jacket). We worked with our manufacturer on a lighter more comfortable leather. It has great curves and the hoodie is complete and able to zip together or into the liner of the jacket. It also has thumb holes for cold nights.

Our Special Opps series with vests and jackets is a more traditional biker jacket with a ton of pockets. The sleeves un-zip from the body to allow the jacket to be a vest.

We wanted a lighter vest for everyday use and came up with this Ballistic Nylon with leather trimmed vest. It’s great for Arizona riders who need something to breathe. I wear one around the shop in the winter and on my bike in the summer. It’s light, cool and has all the right pockets.

We designed the Flat Out vest for club guys. It’s super clean for patches. Like the Jak shirt line, we hide two slip-in pockets. We ever eliminated the waist band for the ultra-chopped and trimmed look.

We also have ultra-soft Speedway leather shirts in brown and black. They are classic and super comfortable.

Nasa’s first all-female spacewalk scrapped over spacesuit sizes

By General Posts

A planned first all-female spacewalk has been cancelled because of spacesuit issues, US space agency Nasa says.

5-Ball Racing Tee-Shirts come in all sizes for your Earthly pleasures.

http://shop.bikernet.com

Anne McClain and Christina Koch had been scheduled to install lithium-ion batteries at the International Space Station (ISS) on Friday.

But Nasa says there is only one ready medium-size hard upper torso spacesuit that fits each of the two women.

The spacesuits available at the ISS are in fact assemblies of several parts put together as best adapted to each astronaut’s body, Brandi Dean, spokeswoman of the Johnson Space Center in Houston, was quoted as saying by the AFP news agency.

Nasa has two medium-size hard upper torsos – considered the “shirt of the spacesuit” – at the ISS but one of the spacesuits has yet to be properly configured for a spacewalk.

NASA says their sizes were medium, large and extra large.

“However, individuals’ sizing needs may change when they are on orbit, in response to the changes living in microgravity can bring about in a body,” she added.

So far only male or mixed male-female teams have conducted spacewalks.

New shipment of 5-Ball Racing Leathers arrived

By General Posts

We ordered just a couple of black Speedway shirts in a light leather without Sleeves. I like mine in brown. It’s become my go-to vest for around town, not so much for riding. When I need a vest to carry my phone, notes, sunglasses, and stuff, it hits the spot. I can wear it over a flannel for additional warmth or over a T-shirt to make up for missing pockets.

They are not in the shop yet, so if you’re interested drop me a line and we’ll make it happen. Or check out the Speedway full shirts in the shop.

Specical Ops Jacket is perfect for long days of riding – designed for the road with heavy duty gun metal grey zipper front, bound leather neck trim and strong double needle seam construction. The 2 conceal and carry pockets will stow your valuables.

Jak Shirt 5/8th Sleeve is a great head-turner when on city runs for daily wear. It features snap front closure with extended shirt-style tail that provides length in the trunk and delivers a slender look. All around one of the best fits. The Jak Shirt Sleeveless is made from strong milled Buffalo leather, a top-grain quality leather – the most common type used in high-end leather products.
