Aprilia (Piaggio Group) officially announced that they will enter the Grand Prix motorcycle racing in the MotoGP class. The Aprilia brand’s return to the top world motorcycling competition will take place in 2015, a year ahead of their previously announced plans.
The intent of the Piaggio Group’s strategy to commit the Aprilia brand in the MotoGP class is to favour a rapid growth of competitiveness, focusing all Aprilia Racing’s technical and organisational efforts on developing prototypes. For this reason, Aprilia Racing will send its bikes onto the track supported by a cooperation agreement which has been reached with Gresini Racing.

A day after celebrating his fourth AMA Pro SuperBike Championship in the past five years, Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha’s Josh Hayes was determined to show why he is the dominant SuperBike rider in the U.S.
And he did just that. The man who had won 47 SuperBike races in just the past six years--and all of them aboard the Yamaha YZF-R1--added a 48th victory to his total, in Sunday’s Race 2 at New Jersey Motorsports Park.
Josh got off to a great start in the race and was in the lead with Roger Hayden, Martin Cardenas, and Josh’s Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha teammate Cameron Beaubier close behind. On lap three of the contest, Josh had a bobble, which moved him back to third, and Cameron took the lead.

World Championship leader Marc Marquez made an uncharacteristic error on lap ten of the Misano race and lost the front end at Rio corner, costing him a chance to fight for the win. Marquez was able to restart but only managed to climb back to 15th and take one Championship point.
After a promising start, Marquez steadily progressed up to second, after battling with Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi. However, as Marquez pushed to try and stay with race leader Rossi, he made a small mistake and lost the front at turn four at a fairly low speed, with the bike spinning out. He was able to pick the bike up but had trouble getting it started again. The race marshals arrived and managed to bump start him, but by this point the pack had disappeared.

Earlier this year I spotted some interesting riding shorts over at the ADVRider forums. One of the members is making his own line of riding underwear designed specifically for motorcycle riders. Being a long time rider himself (of motorcycles and bicycles) he set to work to develop riding underwear for more comfortable distance riding. He also decided to make three different versions for cruisers, sport, and adventure riders to tailor the needs to the riding position. Here's a little bit from the review:
- Moto-Skiveez are truly a functional type of motorcycle underwear made by a motorcycle rider. I’m not saying that they will work as effectively on everyone as they have for me. Everyone’s body, bike, and bike seat combination are different so quite literally, your mileage may vary.
You can read the full review over at webBikeWorld.com, and don't worry, there are no photos of me modeling the MotoSkiveez. No one wants that!!
