SHOEI HORNET X2 Review – The Best Dual Sport Helmet Yet?

Posted by Garrett Galvan on March 17, 2020

Dual sport riders are no doubt a unique bunch. After all, the adventurous bikes we enjoy have to pull double duty when piloted by riders with the skills and knowledge to cover a variety of terrains. As such, the rest of the riding gear we depend on, from head to toe, needs to be appropriate for a wide variety of scenarios we get ourselves into.

The Best off Road GPS Combo That Never Let Me Down

Posted by Adam Eckert on January 20, 2020

When I first began planning the ride that would become a four-month, 13,000-mile trip through the southern United States, nearly all of Central America, and the entire length of South America, one thing I knew was that I would need a solid and 100% reliable means of navigation.

As smartphones now appear to play a significant role in the human experience, more motorcycle riders than ever before are depending on these handheld devices as their primary GPS navigation tool. After all, why fumble around with a dedicated GPS device, when our phones, these tools that do so much more than just GPS routing, can do the same. Often better, and more reliably.

Klim Krios Karbon Adventure Helmet: The 25 Day Thailand Test

Posted by Eric Lange on August 23, 2018

That I'm still a fan of Klim and their riding gear is no secret at all. Perhaps it's more their fault than mine though ... they still make great products for adventure riders.

I picked up the Klim Krios Karbon Adventure helmet just before our recent scouting trip to Thailand and Laos, and in doing so, went against a very obvious and basic rule I've said before: Always take the time to actually ride with a helmet and check fitting before any big trip. Waiting until you're a couple of days into an international adventure to discover that the fitting is wrong may result in a headache worse than that time you said "I'll take the cheapest tequila you've got." Once you're in the destination country, finding a replacement helmet will be an unnecessary and expensive challenge, and since the non-fitting helmet will definitely "used" by then, it'll be worth very little in terms of possible exchange or sale to another rider.

Adventure Motorcycle Boots Review [A Step in the Right Direction?]

Posted by Malcolm Lee on May 18, 2017

It may have been all the rage bouncing around farm tracks in a woolen sweater with your cap turned backwards 100 years ago, but heading off-road on one of today's 500lb-plus dual-sport motorcycles is slightly more demanding on your clothing, thus the need for this adventure boots review.

Alpinestars Gear Review | What You Need to Know

Posted by Lesley Truman-Webb on May 15, 2017

“It’s like catching up with an old friend,” I said with a big smile on my face the other day when I put my Alpinestars gear on for a local ride near home in Central Oregon.

It’s been a few weeks since I returned from my adventure down in Patagonia. My husband and I rode two-up, along with six other rider friends, approximately 2,200 miles from Villarica, Chile down to

In this Garmin Montana 680t review, we'll discuss how the top of the range GPS system has been treated to a new 'ruggedized' shell, specifically designed to take off-road adventures to new heights, depths, and through all the twisty bits in between.

Motocross boots for adventure riding: Why not?

Posted by Sarah Williams on November 3, 2015
Overview 

Admittedly, with the hefty price tag attached to these motorcycle boots came a fair amount of skepticism on my part. I had worn  SIDI Canyon boots prior to purchasing these and to be honest, I was fairly happy and content with them for the entire year in which I wore them. It wasn’t until returning from our research trip to Southern Africa (where I wore my Canyon’s again) that I realized just how much I love and have become accustomed to the protection and comfort that the Crossfire 2’s provide.

Best Motorcycle Chocking System: Beast Racks

Posted by Eric Lange on August 25, 2015

Versatile, secure, durable, and affordable…what more could we have asked for in a motorcycle transport and wheel chocking system?

I first saw the Beast Rack system at a motorcycle rally earlier this year, and immediately noticed the advantages it has over traditional floor-mounted wheel chocks. We went ahead and purchased a Beast Rack system right away, and have since spent the last few months traveling from one motorcycle rally to another, meeting our fellow riders out there in the world. After this extensive testing period, we have nothing but good things to say about this product.
