AGV SPORTS GROUP: A Quarter Century and Beyond
With 25 years in the making, AGVSPORT products have exceeded expectations in not only providing superior protection for racers and street riders but also in the business world. AGVSPORT leathers are no stranger to the podium and the same winning leathers can be purchased by the public. They are also celebrating the 20th Anniversary of sponsoring the number one superbike school in the nation, California Superbike School, and have recently established a partnership with Motonation, their official U.S. distributor.

This year marks the 20th anniversary celebrating AGVSPORT’s sponsorship of the California Superbike School. Keith Code, founder of the number one bike school, has taught over 100,000 racers including 15 superbike champions who have taken AGVSPORT leathers to the podium. To add on to their historic year AGVSPORT has reached a long term and exclusive licensing agreement with their official U.S. distributor Motonation, a San Diego based company offering products from Premier American and Italian companies. Motonation now has coverage from head-to-toe of the highest quality motorcycle gear from AGVSPORT, SIDI boots, and VEMAR helmets. With a continued relationship with Keith Code’s California Superbike School and the addition of Motonation as the new US license holder and distributor AGVSPORT continues to grow and be one of the most recognized names in racing and sport apparel.

Founded in 1985, this year marks the 25th anniversary of AGV Sport’s Group Inc which is one of the oldest riders owned and operated motorsports apparel companies in the industry. Under the direction of the founder Michael Parrotte, AGV Sports Group makes sure their products are engineered for maximum functionality without compromising abrasion and tear resistance as well as comfort. With the origin of the company being the importation of AGV Helmets from Italy, the company has a strong technical mentality based on the world of helmet manufacturers.

“…Laguna feels as if it had been created by a serious racetrack rider who’d decided once and for all to fix what he didn’t like about wearing leathers.”

Apparel design is always geared to their core market being the serious rider and/or racer. Identical products worn by AGVSPORT professional riders, most notably seven-time AMA Superbike champion Mat Mladin, can be purchased by the general public. Each product is designed by riders for riders and function is never sacrificed for aesthetics. Keeping product development with Road Racers and Sport bike enthusiasts in house, they stay loyal to their dedicated followers who respect the quality and value of AGVSPORT gear and apparel.

The 2010 product line has had nothing but good review, which can be seen on the company’s blog site, most notably from trackdaymag.com regarding their Laguna suit. “Overall, the functionality of the AGV Sport suit was so good that when he switched back to his regular leathers later in the day, our tester immediately felt hot… This is one serious suit and the price is right in line with the cost of similar garments from other top brands.” The review goes on to say that the Laguna suit has immense functionality and comfort even after a tedious day at the track. It can be purchased through Motonation or found at one of AGVSPORT’s vendor displays on an upcoming weekend.

Moving forward this year AGVSPORT will have a display garage in the paddock at the 2010 Red Bull Indy MotoGP at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway the 27th to the 29th of August. In addition to the MotoGP, they will also be present at the New Jersey round of the AMA Pro Superbike Championship at New Jersey Motorsports Park the 3rd to the 5th of September. A full range of 2011 AGVSPORT products will be available at both events.

TrackDayMag.com review of AGV Sport Laguna Race Suit

http://www.trackdaymag.com/Articles/AGV-Sport-Laguna-1-piece-suit.aspx

Track riding is an athletic endeavor. We crawl all over our machines as we do a lap, punishing muscles and gushing sweat. We expect our leathers to be protective, accepting that there will be certain compromises to our mobility and comfort as a result. Now imagine your dream leather suit. You’d be protected, absolutely comfortable, completely unhindered in your movement around the bike and you’d look like a million bucks in the bargain. Do such leathers even exist? Well, now they do.

We tested this suit during an unseasonably hot trackday at Gingerman Raceway in Michigan. After our first session in the new AGV Sport Laguna 1-piece leather suit, we were spouting words like, “Ergonomics! Design! User friendliness!” In use, the Laguna feels as if it had been created by a serious racetrack rider who’d decided once and for all to fix what he didn’t like about wearing leathers. The suit worked so well that we immediately took it back off so that we could study the garment more closely in an attempt to determine its secrets. The Laguna provides a very different experience from suits we’ve tried in the past and we wanted to know how this had been accomplished.

Maryland Tramples Constitution to Crush Men and Ironically Stomps on Women

Maryland Tramples Constitution to Crush Men and Ironically Stomps on Women
Maryland residents were outraged to learn that, in January 2010, their state, in pursuit of big-government control, had trampled the US Constitution with Senate Bill 129 and House Bill 65. They discovered that these unconstitutional twins, birthed by feminists, were intended to restrict “romantic” contact between Maryland men and foreign women. Ironically, by couching the misandrist legislation in gender-neutral language, Maryland lawmakers stomped on all American women in Maryland who date foreign men. Details at http://Maryland-Dating-Law.com.
Not only does Maryland’s HB65 deny Americans all such protections, it unilaterally transfers them to foreigners. What would George Washington say? — Marc H. Rudov, The NoNonsense Man®
Maryland Tramples Constitution to Step on Men’s Rights while Violating the Privacy and Safety of Maryland Women
Maryland Tramples Constitution to Step on Men’s Rights while Violating the Privacy and Safety of Maryland Women
The Maryland bills, as originally proposed, would have required each American citizen, before beginning any communication with potential foreign paramours — even anonymous communication through a dating Website — to provide them fingerprints, criminal and sex-offender records, and a complete marital history. Not only are foreigners, even those located in the US, not required to reciprocate their personal info to Americans, they are free to disseminate and publicize the Americans’ information on the Internet.
Maryland residents thought – “We can’t believe this pernicious government intrusion into private lives and total disregard for American rights. When will it end? This is yet another example of politicians buckling to radical feminists. Our lawmakers were so politically correct that they unwittingly rushed through an unconstitutional monster that will equally punish women. And, when women learn of this, these politicians will become unemployed in the next election.”
The bill’s chief author, Delegate Jeannie Haddaway-Riccio (R), ostensibly modeled it after the federal International Marriage Broker Act of 2005 (IMBRA), which, according to many, is unconstitutional. Apparently, IMBRA isn’t invasive enough — its background-info requirement isn’t triggered until the foreigner invokes it. HB65’s requirement for personal information from Americans, on the other hand, is always active.
Marc H. Rudov, globally known author, radio/TV personality, and men’s rights advocate, opined thusly: “The US Constitution, specifically the Bill of Rights, confers upon American citizens certain protections from tyranny: presumption of innocence, due process, equal protection, protection from unreasonable search and seizure, and protection from self-incrimination. Not only does Maryland’s HB65 deny Americans all such protections, it unilaterally transfers them to foreigners. What would George Washington say? The sole purpose of Maryland’s nonsense is to help radical feminists bash men who prefer non-American women. The solution is to kill these bills, period. Not dilution, not modification, not amendment. Just kill them altogether.”
