We know to put on a helmet every time we ride, but helmets are not the only basic protection that riders need.
Other than helmets, motorcycle safety gear such as riding gloves, boots and jackets will comfort your body and protect your limbs from injury during accidents.Read More
I recently reviewed the new goggles from the Durango, Colorado based company, ICAN Industries. See the video for the full review.
At the moment, ICAN goggles are only available in shops throughout New Mexico and southern Colorado, but you can order by phone or email with your credit card. The goggles cost $25.99 and figure $6 for shipping. If you wish to order the tinted lens they are also available for an additional $9.50. The tinted lens is UV400 rated which means it blocks anywhere from 99 to 100 percent of the sun’s harmful radiation.
For mail order call or email ICAN Industries at 970-946-9974 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure you tell them you heard about their goggles on Spirit Strike!

Recently I was offered the opportunity to sample and review a new VikingCycle leather jacket from Motorcyclehouse.com. I decided it was indeed time for some hide in my motorcycle life again and being a fan of the classics chose the Angel Fire Motorcycle jacket. You know the style. Think Brando in ‘The Wild One’, The Ramones or even Schwarzenegger in ‘The Terminator’. The iconic biker jacket. If I’m going to wear another leather jacket on a bike it’s going to be the standard. Decision made.Read More
The new AFX FX-41 is a Dual Sport/Adventure helmet that AFX has added to its line. The FX-41 is not replacing the FX-39, and will be sold as an additional model. The new FX-41 looks aggressive and futuristic with its sharp lines and many vents. I have previously tested an FX-39 and was hopeful AFX had worked out the kinks of the older helmet.Read More

It wasn’t too long ago that I purchased a used Kawasaki KLR 650 and I was faced with an entirely new style of riding. Now that I could venture offroad I knew my street riding gear was not going to be well suited for that type of riding. I also knew that I would be falling and I didn’t want to trash my street gear by knocking it about in the gravel and dirt.Read More
When I started riding my dual sport bike I found a whole new type of gear was needed. I never had a dirt bike as a kid so I had no idea what offroad riding gear would be best for what I was doing. I also found that the available choices for gear that successfully crosses over between street and offroad is pretty limited.Read More
The Sidi Discovery Rain boot is a multi season dual sport/adventure boot that bridges the gap between a road boot and a full mx boot. The Discovery is designed specifically for riders that need more comfort and flex than most mx boots provide.Read More
As long as we ride hot vinyl and leather seats dressed up in our whale skin suits we will have issues that need to be dealt with. This is one of those uncomfortable topics to talk about, but once you find a system that works its easier to spend more time on the bike rather than cursing your seat, underwear, or Mother Nature. I personally have tried many products in order to find that perfect balance of comfort for long hours in the saddle.Read More
There are many options for a dual sport rider to choose from, but the LS2 MX453 Dual Sport helmet is designed with adventure riders in mind.

A dual sport helmet may be the perfect balance between functionality and comfort.Read More
The Held Evo Thrux is a well made glove that boasts many technical features. At the time this article was written the price for these gloves is about $130. These gloves are not cheap, but after a full season of riding they have proven to be a great addition to my glove collection. These gloves are equally at home on the street or the track.Read More
The Fox Polarpaw glove is an affordable glove that offers good protection, but perhaps it was not named properly. If you are looking for a cold weather glove I would not suggest these gloves, but if you want a glove to transition from mesh gloves to cold weather gloves the Polarpaw will fill that gap. They are reasonably priced at $39.99 so adding these gloves to your arsenal won’t break the bank.Read More

For my readers that ride you know what ATGATT stands for, but for my readers that have not yet discovered the staggering awesomeness of motorcycling, I will explain. ATGATT is an acronym that stands for “All The Gear All The Time”. I am not sure of the origins of this acronym, but if I had to take a guess I would say the MSF (Motorcycle Safety Foundation) came up with it. They use it as a mantra during class to encourage riders to always wear proper protective gear while riding.
The whole subject of ATGATT can get touchy with some people. Personally, I am a believer, and always practice ATGATT. However, I am also a big believer in personal freedom and will always support the right to make your own choice.Read More
