Yard Sale: Mortal Terror

March 10, 2015 // 0 Comments

By Anna Svagdyzs Well, since my bike is pretty much benched until I can scrape up some decent winter tires and a top end kit, I’m going to tell you a story about the most terrified I’ve ever been on a dirt bike. The scene is Fast Freddy’s Wednesday night motocross ride, and I pretty much have no business being there other than getting in the way of the fast people and ruining the berms for everyone by riding over them and then crashing on the other side. There are three jumps at Fast [Read More...]

Goldentyre Tires & Mouse

November 16, 2014 // 61,120 Comments

By Kevin Novello While in Romania I had an opportunity to try the Goldentyre GT216 90/90-21 front tire, GT216X 140-80/18 rear tire, and Goldentyre 120x bib mousse. The terrain we tested them in varied from dry, rocky cart roads, slick greasy trails, rock and root laced single track, and of course several steep hills that varied from loose gravel to rocks and roots.

The top fits over the helmet just below the visor while the base of goggles rest in the traditional location below your eyes and along the bridge of your nose. When you get past the novel appearance of them, you will find that they work well and have a few benefits over traditional goggles. The obvious benefits are [Read More...]

Task Lighting Kit

Night riding is becoming more popular, especially in the winter around here as visibility is a bit better. If you’re thinking about doing a little riding after dusk, then consider the Task lighting system. We tried the Moto Adventure lighting system, which retails for 99.99 and is significantly less expensive than its competitors. In terms of performance, the Task lights up the trail and offers three settings that range from super bright to less bright and then a flashing mode. I used the [Read More...]

Enduro Spec Suspension

September 11, 2014 // 0 Comments

I am at a point where I don’t see myself getting any faster.  I am not the type of seasoned veteran like  Jeff Pasqua or Mike Lafferty that can meet and beat the speed of the younger throttle jockeys.  Still, I like to do well.  So rather than relying on twisting the throttle beyond my comfort zone, I need to employ all of the available options that help me ride to my potential.  In addition to improved fitness and efficient technique, a good suspension tuner is about the best investment [Read More...]
