Adventure, Enduro or Dual-Sport.  Whatever you call it, this riding niche has existed for as long as curious riders on motorcycles have been around, but the niche is booming right now.  One reason for this is that more bike and gear manufacturers are coming out with new products that are specifically built for this niche.  There has never been a better time to give ADV a try, but many riders get intimidated by all of the fancy technology and bikes.  I’m here to tell you that you don’t need that $20,000 decked out motorcycle and all of the gizmos that are associated with the sport.  You can have the best adventure motorcycling trip of your life with just the basics.

What if you were told that you could put a shorter windshield on your bike, but the air would flow higher over your head? You would accuse the messenger of being a snake oil salesman. Well, I’m here to tell you that the new Memphis Shades windshield does just that, but I don’t have any snake oil for sale. The design of the Drop-Top™ windshield allows for the wind to be pushed higher and over the rider’s head. Many windshields need to be in the rider’s line of the sight to be able to completely block the wind. You can either look through them or keep them lower and deal with helmet buffeting. The Venturi Wing™ design on the Drop-Top eliminates this dilemma. This new windshield design […]

No other helmet and intercom combination can compare to the Nolan N104 paired with the N-Com B4 communication system.  The two are designed to be perfectly integrated with each other so there is a streamlined design and seamless integration.  Other modular helmets or intercom systems can be good on their own, but few can match the combination that Nolan has put together.  The Italian based Nolan helmets have always been a leader in the modular helmet world and they continue to lead the way with the N104 combined with the N-Com B4.  One reason the combination is so good is because they are great products individually. The N104 is by far the best modular from Nolan, so far.  Taking the best from their previous models and making […]
