    Washington 2014 Klim Gear

    2014 Dakar ITB pants 34-36 2 rides Dakar jersey XL 2 rides Mojave Pants 32-34 2 rides Mojave Jersey XL 2 rides All in great condition, all too big for me. Everything runs big so they might fit larger sizes aswell. Jersey has my number on it but that's what chest protectors are for I'd like to get 100 bucks a set Thanks
  2. The weather here in Canada is turning for the worst but I would like to keep riding through the rain, sleet, hail, and cold until the snow stays on the ground. So im looking for a jacket that is designed to work with the Leatt neck brace. So far I have found 4 that fit the bill, but want to see all the options possible, please post up the jackets that you know of that fit over the Leatt. -Troy Lee Designs Adventure -Leatt W.E.C -Leatt Adventure -Acerbis Desertika
  3. Hey guys, Shopping around for some new body armor and need some suggestions. Im running the fox airframe and some cheap elbow pads right now but want something better. I also run a leatt neck brace. I race, trail ride, desert ride, track practice... so something light but protective would be awesome. I kind of like the leatt 3df airfit, but dont like how it has no rib pads at all. https://goo.gl/8pQppB So i looked at the troy lee 7855, and it seems nice https://goo.gl/jbXaph but i have always liked the thor sentinel; just dont like how it has 0 shoulder padding, obviously id run separate elbow pads https://goo.gl/78uLmt and then i saw the new fox raptor, which seems like the best option if i wanted to go for the hard outer shell, and id run separate elbow pads as well http://goo.gl/V5EFC6 any thoughts? recommendations? reviews? reason i want something new is that i dislocated my shoulder a year ago and i think its because of how the leatt and airframe lock into eachother, it created a lever point right at my shoulder where it came out. oh well live and learn. Thanks!

    cold weather gear

    so, i am planning on riding most of the year... i live in new jersey so we get all 4 seasons... i have the icon pdx jacket and love it... the only problem i do have with it, it has NO vents... so its hot in the summer, but when its raining i haven't minded it... now that the weather is 80 during the day and 60 at night, i find myself using my rain jacket as a wind breaker on the chilly ride home.. i know. i am a baby... lol but 60 degrees is not so warm at night doing 60mph... well, at least to me its not... i rode last winter/spring in 40 degree weather.. i had a regular (waffle type) thermals on top and bottom. a t shirt, a long sleeve shirt, my fox titan armor, a hoody sweatshirt over that, then the icon pdx jacket on... now i was comfortable temperature wise but felt a little too bulky... lol i wont be using the armor during the winter this year to cut down on some of the bulk. but would rather wear it if i could... here is my problem... most of my friends all snow board and ski... they are telling my to buy skiing stuff for the winter... its water and wind proof of course.. like the northface 3 jackets in one.. they keep saying that's all i will need... they snowboard at night in 20 degree weather... granted they are not going 60 mph most of the time, but i can believe what the y are saying... is this a route that YOU would consider??? heated gear is an option, but $400 for heated gear is a lot right now for me.. a good jacket can cost $300 though... what do you all do??? layers like i was doing? heated gear worth it? snowboarding attire? i have been looking at some tour master, firstgear, and firstsheer stuff. but mostly for the rain gear, then i would layer under it... does this sound like a logical route??? are my regular waffle type thermals good enough or do i invest in some underarmor type stuff??? after i add everything up, the heated gear seems to fit the bill, but is it diverse enough? the rain gear, thermals, etc... seem to be the most diverse and usable all year then the heated gear... this is my slow season coming up and i have to watch my money... so i want to do this right... and i am hoping that some of you more experienced commuters would have a better idea... like people who have had 50+ bikes kind of experience... lol any help would be greatly appreciated and i am sure this will help others in the process... i hope... i mean, i could be just that dumb and be the only one with this question... i guess i could go and search around about ideas, but i trust you all... we are a diverse bunch of people with a lot of our own ideas about how "it should be"... so lets hear it... oh and to all of you that live where it's warm all year round...
  5. I'm looking for a good place to ride for three days this weekend, preferably mostly single track. Originally was planning on the Naches area just south of Cle Elum, WA, but the temperatures are projected to be in the mid 90s there which is just too hot. Is there any place in WA or OR that typically stays cooler than the rest of the area and would be snow free this time of year? Might just have to go rafting instead.
  6. Ive got the heated jacket liner and gloves from First Gear. (made by Warm and Safe heated gear) I have a duall controller for each. Ive done some searching and it looks like it would be a bad idea to run both at the same.(At full power) Jacket liner 90 watts Gloves 15 watts each I would like to be able to run both at maybe half power for those really cold days. It wont be very often here in eastern NC. I have done the free power mod and have the edge led tail light. Stock headlight and turn signals. I also have battery tenders available at work and home. Id like to install a volt meter to monitor whats going on when riding but have no idea where to install it on the electrcal system. Also what is the minimum reading I can go to without doing any damage. Sorry if this has been covered before but I'm pretty clueless when it comes to electricity and dont want to fry my bike.

  8. I have a set of skullcandy answer gear and the Jersey is wayyy to small now, it's a 2XL I have an XL thor jersey that fits fine, both of these jerseys are 2010. I really like answer gear but I don't know if they're fit has improved, and I've heard good things about TLD gear but I don't know how the sizing runs with them. Can you guys give me input on how different jereys fit please? (for you normal dudes I need to know what companies tend to be more baggy than others)
  9. I just picked up my first dual sport bike, an 2007 KTM 450 EXC and i am in the market to pickup riding gear so i can start enjoying the bike. I was looking at jackets at the local shop and there was a ton of different styles and wanted to know which style is best for someone looking to partake in trail and off-road riding mostly with the occasional ride down the street to the trails. I tried to throw on my old leather jacket from my sport bike riding days and it was a tad to tight so new gear is in need but i no longer live in a cold climate so i am looking for recommendations for gear in the hotter weather of Florida for dual sport riding.

    Knee Braces

    Looking to make the investment on a pair of knee braces. Many choices out there .... I have read many many reviews, forums, individual testing, videos, etc ... I am leaning toward the POD K8's & Leatt ... I was hoping to get some input from you guys who have them, what they like/dislike, if they would switch to another, blah blah blah ... Thanks ahead of time ...

    SM Riding Gear?

    Hey there everybody! Im new to the forums and really new to the supermoto world. Coming from Harleys, Ive always been fine with just boots, jeans, gloves, helmet, and leather jacket and never thought I needed more. Now, 2 weeks into riding my newly acquired 2013 DRZ400sm Ive already looped it and I got scrapped up pretty good. Not bad mind you but just enough for me to step back and go huh...that kinda sucked. So my question is what kind of gear are you warriors of the road rocking on the supermotos (helmet, jacket, gloves, pads, pants, etc..)? I bought a cheap Bilt mesh jacket with the CE pads and crap in it however it only helped my wrists and elbows a little bit. It got tore up worse then I think it should have. Everything else Ive been using is what I normally wear on my Harley. Any feedback would be much appreciated! Thanks you gentlesirs and gentlemams! -Odie
  14. What kind of predilection do you wear while ice riding? What do you think are the essentials that everyone who is ice riding should wear. Thanks

    How to fix Enduro and MX Clothing

    My ortheses rubbed a hole into the knee area of my Enduro Freestyle pants. Here is how to fix this the fast and easy way.. Tools required: - Scissors - Hot Glue Gun - Hot Air Gun (preferably temperature controlled) Materials required: - Old polyester clothing (e.g. old motorcycle pants) Here is a video showing the procedure (link) Step 1. Cut a piece of fabric out of the old pant (with about the size of the area to be patched). Step 2. See if it fits the area to be patched. Step 3. Using the Hot Glue Gun apply a thin layer of Hot Glue on the patch. The thinner the better.. Step 4. Heat it using the Heat Gun. First find the right temperature to melt the glue but not the patch.. Step 5. Apply the patch with some pressure. Be careful not to burn your fingers.. Step 6. Heat the patched area using the Hot Air Gun. Apply some pressure to the patch afterwards. Step 7. Apply a very thin coat of glue around the edges of the patch using the Hot Glue Gun. The thinner the better.. Step 8. Heat the sealed edges of the patch using the Hot Air Gun. Let the glue soak into the fabric. Step 9. Let everything cool down and check the seal. The patch should be as flexible as the original fabric.. Congratulations. You´re done. Now enjoy and go riding.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jfTIlg01V9I
  16. http://www.motosport.com/dirtbike/Klim-2014-Adventure-Rally-Jacket So can anyone tell me if the addition of a hydration system and a few other bits is worth over a grand.......thats $1000 MORE than a sweet $500 model from the same manufacturer? I get that it has more stuff, but a grand?$?$?$?$$$$$$$$$$$$$ Anyone here try this $1500 jacket and want to admit it?
  17. This is something I've wondered for along time and I want some peoples opinions. Why do peoples mx gear not match their bike?? Like with a honda you get red gear and a Suzuki you get yellow gear. I just wanna hear why people don't match their bikes or I'm just the weird one that matches my gear with my bike. Let me know what y'all think!
  18. Does anyone have any experience riding off road, tough trails, etc, with a riding jacket on? Thinking about trying it for inclement weather, but not sure how they hold up? I have a lightly armored Joe Rocket I was going to throw on over standard plastic body armor and give it a go this weekend. Forecast is for a lot of rain, and I thought it might help? Am I just setting myself up for a sweaty mess, and snagging on tree's? Probably. Just wondered if others had tried it. I have numerous cheap old textile riding jackets hanging around, so no big loss if something happens to one. If it works ok, I would buy a dedicated trail jacket, like the one from Moose, for example.
  19. Klim(said Klime as in Lime). Yeah, yippee. Whatever Over-priced crap or good stuff? Or a few really good items and the rest is overpriced, over hyped, oh-daddy-I-have-to-have-Klim-because-it's-the-latest-thing stuff or it costs a lot so people might think I'm rich or cool? Or it's for those old guys that really have money and a dumb enough to buy it. Or, damn this stuff really IS good?
  20. This has been brought up in past threads but maybe there are newer gear and ideas on what to wear and be prepared.. i know some locally just ride with less on.. I've seen guys and girls riding without even riding with a jersey sometimes.. thats a little too extreme for me but the heat is unbearable sometimes..and i can understand their choice. So what are your gear choices to start.. I know some wear downhill full faced mountain bike helmets for instance.. lighter and vented.
  21. Anytime I ride offroad, I wear my Camelback to help stay hydrated. And when it gets hot out, I fill my Camelback with ice cubes before I put water in it. I've tried freezing the bladder when its full prior to going riding, but that has not always worked as well as I would like, as it sometimes doesn't melt quickly enough. A full load of ice cubes seems to last quite well and the cold water it provides seems much more refreshing than water that's warm.

    OffRoad Erzberg 2015

    Interesting finish.
  23. Any good? http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003EROK8Y?keywords=nitrile%20shop%20gloves&qid=1457994988&ref_=sr_1_13&s=automotive&sr=1-13 Recommendations?
  24. Had a hit hare scramble last weekend and I was using a camel back from Walmart, and I ran out of water the first lap and left me without anything for the rest of the race, so I've decided to get a good quality one, your opinion on which one?

    Help! My hands are COLD!

    Hey guys! Winter is coming, along with the cold. Late autumn weather is already making my hands go numb, especially at night, and that's WITH three pairs of gloves (two liners and thick leather winter gloves). This is my first year EVER with a street legal motorcycle. I got a brand new 2014 drz400sm in late June of this year, been riding almost every day since (just turned over 7000 miles), and I don't plan on stopping now on the count of a little cold weather. That being said, this is my first winter with my bike. I have pretty much all areas covered as far as warmth...except for my hands. I have Acerbis rally pro hand guards, but those just do not offer much wind protection. Im trying to devise a way to somehow extend the wind protection of my hand guards, something cheap, easy, and effective, but also not horribly unattractive. I just got finished trying to fabricate something out of sheet metal, but it went absolutely horribly, I wont go into details, but it was bad. Im usually fairly good at making things like this, but this just has me stumped. Does anyone have any ideas? Maybe some pictures or recommendations of what you do to keep wind off your hands? I've seen something called Knuckle Warmers online which looked cool but was $100, little pricey.
