  1. MSR Defeats Dehydration IRVINE, CA – July 6, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Malcolm Smith Racing’s mission is to ensure that riders have the ability to ride longer in adverse conditions, period. From Malcolm Smith’s first Baja 1000 win in 1967 to Team Ox Motorsports/MSR’s 2016 Baja victory, MSR knows better than anyone what it is like to race in arid conditions and the very real dangers of dehydration. This is the inspiration for 2017 MSR High Performance Hydration Systems. Dangers of dehydration are no joke! “Even minor symptoms such as weakness, dizziness, palpitations (feeling that the heart is jumping or pounding), confusion and fainting are compounded when you are on the pegs charging through a wash tapped out in 6th gear or threading your way through the trees at a GNCC,” says Malcolm Smith Racing brand manager Brent Harden. “Riding on the razor’s edge means you need all your faculties… a little dizziness or the slightest lack of focus can result in disaster in the blink of an eye.” To help prevent dehydration from becoming an issue, MSR has introduced four new high performance Hydro packs. From the bare bones H1 Race System to the top of the line A4 Hydro system, features abound. “We took the best bladders in the business and applied 50 years of off-road racing expertise to create a comprehensive hydration system,” explains Harden. Tested by top pros like Coastal Racing’s Craig DeLong in GNCCs and the Ox Motorsports team in Baja, the systems feature secure 4-point harnesses, hands-free bite valves and some unique high tech materials. Based on the racer feedback, the vented mesh chassis allows for air to flow freely while a proprietary heat deflection foil liner transfers hot spots away from the rider. H1 – Secure Race Harness. Compact 18oz. Bladder Helmet. Hands-Free Bite Valve XC – Secure 4-Point Harness. Medium 2.0 Liter Bladder. Smart Device Pocket A2 – Secure 4-Point Harness. Large 3.0 Liter Bladder. Smart Device Pocket A4 – Secure 4-Point Harness. Large 3.0 Liter Bladder. Large Storage Compartment. Smart Device Pocket Malcolm Smith’s legend lives on! Get more details at: http://msracing.com/paks-and-bags/hydration-packs.html DEALERS: MSR products are available exclusively through Tucker Rocky Distributing ABOUT MALCOLM SMITH RACING “We Are Off-Road” Our products bear the name of the most legendary off-road racer of all time: Malcolm Smith.

  2. Chances are that your gear is caked in mud by the end of the day. While a thorough cleaning is necessary, you run the risk of damaging the your outfit in the process. Alternatively, you don’t want to be wearing dirty gear because you’re afraid of ruining the material. Whilst you should always adhere to the specific washing labels your gear comes with, these tend not to be detailed. Luckily, there are basic guidelines you should follow while washing your gear to ensure you get maximum cleanliness with no harm done. Act fast Starting the process early is essential in cleaning your gear. Avoid crumpling your outfit as this allows the dirt to sink in. Instead, try to remove as much as dirt as you can before properly washing it. This can be done by hosing off the mud under a low pressure. For stubborn stains, use a soft brush with cold water and a mild detergent. Avoid using excessive force as this can deteriorate the durability of your gear. Oxygenated detergent You should be wary of using oxygenated detergent when washing your gear. While it’s useful for the extra lift it gives to stains, its active ingredients can dry out the leather knees. Over time, this will make them unsafe due to cracking and splitting. Turning your gear inside out and soaking with a mild, non-abrasive detergent is gentler than using oxygenated detergents without compromising on hygiene. Machine washing After removing as much dirt as you can, wash your gear in the machine under a cold wash and cold rinse. Some riders are tempted to pressure clean their gear or wash it under a more rigorous cycle, but this runs the risk of crumpling or fading your gear. It’s also powerful enough to push the oils out from the leather knees, compromising their flexibility. Also avoid washing your gear with bleach, as this will fade the colour. Drying Tumble drying your gear after it’s finished washing can ruin all the careful cleaning you’ve done to this point. Hang it to dry in a well ventilated area out of direct sunlight. This will allow the material to breathe and protect the colours from fading prematurely. After it's dry, pack away neatly and never iron it out as this can melt the fabric.

  3. During the hot and humid summers here in Atlanta Georgia, I wear my homemade ice vest while riding. Here are instructions to make a DIY Ice Vest: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_20mUcKz5izRWR5NTh3TGJUUVk/edit?usp=sharing I also made an ice pack for your neck and shoulders. I took an airplane neck pillow, took out the padding and replaced it with small plastic 100ml frozen water bottles from Ikea. http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/90235117/ I wear it under my chest protector to keep it from moving around and it also acts like a neck roll. Using the ice vest by itself also acts as a chest protector.

    I've not had enough time on the bike to complete a review. But, I will be in coming weeks/months.
  5. With full riding gear and luggage I am probably 215lbs and I trail ride this bike hard. I'm looking to replace my rear shock soon but I just don't know enough about suspension to know who makes the best product or if I would even notice any difference at all while riding between these products. What do you guys think? I've read that Racetech makes a very nice shock but I haven't been able to find a lot of info on the other two. Are they all basically the same? There is a decent price difference between them so that makes me think that there is some technical difference that I can't see. Thanks for any information!!!
  6. I mean really! The older I get the more gear I find necessary to save myself from permanent or severe injury. I've never timed how long it takes, but it takes so long to suit up with all the gear that sometimes I find myself not riding as planned just because its a pain to suit up! 🤦 I'm planning on going riding after work, but we'll see. 🙄 In no particular order: Polypropylene socks Boot socks Knee guards Boots Elbow protection Jockstrap Body armor Neck brace Riding pants Riding jersey Gloves Helmet Goggles Hydration pack or fanny pack Sheesh!🤣
  7. Hi, I was wondering, where do you guys keep your registration? Their is no rear storage seat. do you guys keep it in your wallets? or find a spot on the bike to hide it?
  8. TT'ers, our goal is to create product reviews that you guys want to read; reviews that are useful in making good buying decisions. That said, I want to get your opinion on length of reviews. We want to be thorough, but we don't want readers checking out early because it's simply too long/in-depth. > If you would, give this sample review a look and let me know how you feel about its length. Too long? Too short? Just about right? > Lastly, prefer all text, all video, or a combo of the two? Sample Review: Leatt GPX Trial WP 2.0 Hydro/Cargo Pack /reviews/product/45662-leatt-gpx-trail-wp-20-hydation-cargo-pack/
  9. Curious what motorcycle gear others are wearing for different riding on the LRP. I'm in need of some summer gear and want a DS helmet too. I just started to look around, for now here is what I use... Spring/Fall Icon 1000 Chapter jacket in grey. Very high quality piece, love this jacket. Couple different pair of gloves depending on temps. Winter Firstgear Kilimanjaro Jacket, nice and warm. Tourmaster Synergy 2.0 heated gear: Jacket liner, pant liner and leather gloves. Firstgear Overpants, I only wear these on the longer rides. A few pair of fleece lined jeans and cargo pants. Summer I want to pick up a new textile/mesh jacket for those hot days. Since I ride 90% street anyway maybe just a mesh street jacket? I'm down to two helmets, an old Shoei RF800 and a new Bell Star Rally Red with monochromatic shield. Unless I'm going to leave my helmet on the bike then I will take the Bell, the auto tinting shield works perfectly, WAY better than some cheaper glasses that I have had that do that. Now am looking to add a DS helmet, maybe the Arai XD-4? Funny thing is I have been riding street for 22 years and had the same leather jacket until 2 years ago when I started to get better gear. I always got a new helmet every 5-6 years but that was it really. I have to say having nice gear really makes the ride for me, never really noticed it until recently though. Anyway, please share what you have or plan to get, and any advice on DS helmets would be good too. Thanks! 👍
  10. Why don't they want to have the gear and bike to match I just don't get it
  11. 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?
  12. I recently got a fox titan sport jacket. It has front and back protection as well as full arm protection (forearm, elbow and shoulder). I'm wondering if anyone has the same thing or something similar and what do you wear over top of it? I tried on an xl jersey, which fit but was just a little snug over the armour(mostly on the arms). Should I just go to a bigger jersey? Or is there another option I haven't seen. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
  13. Looking at a new get up . . . Thinking about trying out the KLIM Mojave outfit . . . it looks like the KLIM gear, even with a good sale is still quite a bit more than I'm used to spending . . . is it worth the price difference?
  14. 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?
  15. 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.
  16. Every year I set an objective over the winter months (ie lighten my bike, etc.). This year it was to rid my bike of all "made in China" goods and support Canadian and US manufacturers to the highest level. I am amazed at the number of quality companies in the US manufacturing excellent parts and offering great service (ie Promoto Billet, Cycra, Rekluse, FMF, etc.) Anyway, I "think" my bike is now "china free" (cannot control where the manufacturers make the parts), so I am now looking at clothing. Already have the boots and helmet covered (OK, not US made, but not China made either). Anybody know of US companies (or other) who manufacturer riding gear (jerseys, pants, etc) not manufactured in China ? I am thinking KLIM off the top of my head ?? Its time for replacement, so I am now looking at options .. "if" they exist ?? PS ... I don't care if you have all Chinese made parts on your bike... .... a Chinese I-phone ... heck even ride a Chinese bike !! ... I am not debating this (save your opinions), just wondering if ANY companies manufacturer riding gear that is made in the US or Canada (or secondly not in China)? Thanks 👍
  17. Looking to get a camelbak for a scramble this month. Anyone have any suggestions of which to buy? I don't need a huge backpack with the ability to carry tools or anything.
  18. 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
  19. Hey guys. I have a '94 xr650l with a mikuni carb and supertrapp exhaust and every time I go for a ride I have to wash my clothes cause I smell like exhaust really bad. Is there anything I can do it prevent that? It's really annoying... thanks in advance!
  20. 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 ...
  21. 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)
  22. 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.

  24. 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.
