  1. I was trying to get one of these this spring but could not find it in Canada. If it isn’t being carried by Fortnine or Gnarlyparts in Canada already, please get them there soon!

    Riding pants with pockets!!

    Fox Legion pants. The now discontinued MSR Xplorer pants have pockets and can still be found if you look hard enough. Those are the only ones that I’ve found with pockets of a useable size.
  3. I got a pair of these after a get off on a gravel road this spring. I don’t use the cup and don’t wear anything under them. Don’t notice them at all when I’m riding. Found that they were cheapest on amazon. https://ca.shockdoctor.com/shockskin-lax-relax-fit-5-pad-short-with-ultra-carbon-flex-cup
  4. Where do you purchase your GT’s? Availability in Canada isn’t great from what I’ve found so far.

    Red Bull graphics

    That’s for sure...although the radiator shrouds with the embedded decals are pretty sweet.

    You can find them on eBay occasionally, but Red Bull usually sends them a cease and desist order pretty quickly. Other option is to find a vin number for a KTM factory edition of the year that’ll fit your bike and order them from Ktm.
  7. Glad you are OK! I’ve seen a friend get jousted off of his bike just like you, and luckily he was wearing a chest protector too. I don’t understand those people that post that there’s no proof that chest protectors offer any protection.
  8. Ran over a ball of mating garter snakes two years ago! Was pretty disgusting. Bet I ruined the mood!
  9. I just did a google image search and there are definitely much more aggressive enduro soles than the ones I’ve seen. I would still say that for riding in the woods the rewards of an enduro sole will far outweigh the risks of catching the sole on the ground while riding. You’ll appreciate the grip the first time you have to walk or push on a muddy hill.

    Phone in handlebar pad

    Has anybody seen a bar pad similar to the holeshot one? After several years the zipper on mine is failing and I’m just wondering what else is out there. With shipping to Canada the Holeshot gets a little pricey.
  11. I’ve never experienced an enduro sole grabbing. Most (all?) enduro treads that I’ve seen are angled so that you’ll have traction climbing up a hil, but the boot would slide coming down or if you put a foot out in a corner.

    Second chances. (Graphic warning)

    Wow, I would not like to come upon that scene! We had a dog when I was a kid that got run over on the farm and had a similar injury. Crazy glued it’s skull back together and it lived to a ripe old age! Dog was always dumb so I’m not sure if it lost brain cells or not....

    Glad it all turned out well. I had a similar thing happen when I was a teenager teaching my little sister how to ride on her Z50. A stick came up off the front wheel and wedged between the ground and my groin at speed. It drove several inches into my groin but missed the major arteries. I knew it was bad when the nurse in the ER took a look and promptly threw up! All turned out well in the end.

    Phone in handlebar pad

    I have been using the holeshot bar pad for a few seasons now. I’ve crash tested it a lot. Despite shattering my humorous and covering my buttocks in deep laserations and road rash in separate crashes, by phone has not received any damage.
