Long Term Review of the D4Vi9A Shorty Gloves by Guy Bolton Greasy Kulture Magazine
Who best to really test the quality, comfort, performance and longevity of our D4Vi9a Shorty Glove than Guy Bolton, a hard core long distance rider and publisher of Greasy Kulture Magazine.
Guy travels thousands of miles every year on his ’52 Panhead riding to shows, rallies and meetings all over Europe. This is Guy’s opinion on our gloves after 3 years of constant use.
“I have been riding motorcycles for around 35 years now and can honestly say these gloves are the best all-rounders I’ve had.
Warm in winter, comfortable in summer, seemingly impervious to the rigours of regular long-distance riding… I mean, what more could you ask for?
I’ve had them for nearly three years and haven’t really worn anything else on my hands, winter and summer.
In the very worst mid-February cold I may have swapped to a beefier pair of winter gloves, but that’s it.
And after all this time the stitching is still tight, they are beautifully worn in and as usable as the day I got them.
If you want a pair of unfussy, traditionally styled, excellent quality gloves, I thoroughly recommend them.” Guy Bolton, September 2015
And where did it come from?
GKM is an independently published magazine about traditionally-styled old choppers and bobbers.
15 years ago, in the era of fat tyres, billet and easter egg paintjobs, it was a rare sight to see a young fella on a funky, chopped old motorcycle; but a few young guns started building bikes in the classic, pared-back style of the fifties and sixties and GKM (in an online form back then) was there to bring these machines to a global audience. In 2007, we bucked the trend by going into print.
And now that custom motorcycles are finally enjoying their day in the sun, with more homebuilt creativity hitting the highways than ever before, GKM is still bringing you the best of the back-street builders, the sexiest street bikes and the best period customs from Europe, America, Japan and Australasia. If you like your motorcycles raw, raucous and regularly ridden, you’ve come to the right place.
