Riding in traffic sucks.  For one, you’re not experiencing what your bike is truly capable of.  But also, you’re clutch hand and forearm are working overtime to keep the bike rolling smoothly between stops.  For new riders, the stop and go can be terrifying.  Without having it mastered, stalling the bike at a busy intersection is a real fear.

We all loved our onesies when we were growing up.  They were all nice and cozy.  And best of all, you only had to worry about one article of clothing.  But as we grew older, we had to give them up to be big boys and girls and wear actual pants and whatnot.  In the snowmobile world, we were left with separate jackets and bibs to choose from.  Wouldn’t it be nice to just be able to throw on a onesie again? Back in the day, the one piece snow suit did rule the roost.  So much so that many of the many sled manufacturers had their own branded offerings.  Whether they were race leathers or made from crude, early textiles, the snow suits of the 70’s were […]

More is better right?  In much of the snowmobile industry, this rings true.  The introduction of clicker shocks over the past few years is a perfect example.  The mass influx of clicker shocks with myriad adjustments has allowed performance obsessed riders to fine tune their sleds handling and suspension to meet their very specific needs.  These shocks have also left plenty of riders confused and put-off on all the options.  The fact is, these high tech shocks just aren’t for everyone.  Clicker shocks require time to ride test the adjustments and many riders just don’t have that.  That being said, everyone does want their sled to handle and ride better for the way they ride. If you crave better handling but don’t have the time or patience […]

“Not Retro.  Original.” That’s exactly how Bell is reintroducing the legendary design of the Moto 3 helmet.  Bell has had plans to bring back the Moto 3 ever since they successfully launched the retro inspired Bullit helmet.  Those plans have now come to fruition. The original Moto 3 was The MX helmet of its era.  The shape and style have now become iconic.  So much so, that the originals have become one of the most sought after lids at swap meets and on sites like EBay. With the boom in the retro motorcycle scene, the number of vintage inspired helmets has also been on the rise.  There are a few brands that have taken on the challenge of creating their own take on the vintage mx lid.  […]
