  1. I am currently completing my degree project at Autoliv in Sweden, where I will, among other things, find out what wishes/requirements the active in Enduro and Motocross have on protective equipment. Therefore, I have produced a survey on safety protection for the drivers in the relevant branches. I would appreciate if you who train or compete in any of the disciplines Enduro and Motocross answer the survey. Anyone who practices any of the branches is welcome to participate, regardless of level! The survey can be found here: https://forms.gle/gCnQLVQnsyvxoxiu8
  2. I’m a teenage girl and new to riding dirt bikes but I have previously rode atvs for fun. When I would ride the atvs I would just wear a helmet which I don’t think was the safest or the same as a dirt bike. I’m not exactly sure what is a must for riding and staying safe so I figured I would ask for some help on here. I will mostly be riding through grass or farm fields, and dirt/mud/tree trails. So far I’ve been looking at a fox v2 mips helmet and I already have a pair of gloves. I can spend some money but don’t want to be spending a fortune when I’m not that into it yet but also don’t want to be going to the hospital in the first few times I ride my bike either. I’m just looking for some advice on what is a must have and what isn’t really needed to stay safe and be comfortable when riding. Any other tips to a beginner will be helpful too! Thanks to everyone that helps!
  3. I cannot say enough great things about the Fort Bragg CRA California recreational association and the Dirt Bike & ATV Safety program they got going. Incredible instructors that really take the time to teach the kids the proper techniques and all the tools needed to begin this wonderful sport. They have a great training area and if your child need to use a bike or quad they have them. Sarha John and Jason keep up the great work. Check out their web page at https://www.mendocra.org/classes---trainings.html Here is a little video I took of my two sons doing the training program
  4. Hello everyone, I've read all over the forums how to do the safety bypass with the clutch cables to ground, but what I haven't seen is a real list of what safeties exactly this bypasses. I've heard it bypasses the clutch, and kick stand safeties but are there any others? I am switching to a clutch perch that doesn't have these connections and in general would like to ditch the whole hi-beam/turn signal assembly all together. Another thing I don't really care for is the choke at the clutch. I prefer a knob down on the carb to push in/out, looking at it I'm not sure how I could do this with the current setup, is there a specific piece I can order, does anyone have a link handy? THANKS!
  5. So I’m trying to convert my 06 TTR 230 into as much of a rat bike as possible without permanently altering it (so I can still sell it) I’m thinking about removing all the plastics, I’m wondering if removing fenders is dangerous. I ride gravel roads and open fields a lot, I’m just wondering if I’m going to: A: get coated in mud and dust B: get rocks and chunks of mud thrown at my face C: any other way that I would permanently damage my bike or any backpack or helmet I’m wearing also wondering if there’s a place to get replacement plastics that won’t cost me an arm and a leg, also is there any way to make it sound as awful as possible, like removing parts of the exhaust. thanks, just trying to stay safe
  6. I liked around many brands of MX gear to try to find a really good HiViz jersey and found all sorts of stuff with just a little bit of HiViz thrown into gaudy graphics. If I'm laying in the damn dirt out in the desert somewhere I want a big ass blob of HiViz color to stand out and not some small graphic on a black or multi colored jersey. Anyway I found what I needed on Amazon and it was at a damn good price and they have huge sizes to fit over the armor I wear. Sweet wicking mesh with very good reflective tape. I'm 6'4" and the 5xl is a nice lose oversize fit. http://a.co/56kv7Nx
  7. I posted a new how to video on wrapping your spoke crossings with tie wire. I do this to all my rims. It makes them stronger and if you break a spoke it won't go flying off. Also this mod is required to race in the Baja races.
  8. just bought a 2021 Yamaha XT250 and would like to add something to make me more visible like maybe some modulators or aux. lights. Any suggestions? Thanks,
  9. Hi, my boyfriend is a passionate bike racer and his birthday is on this August. When I asked him what gift he wanted for his birthday, he told me that I could gift him anything. I think he would be pleased if I gifted him anything that is related to bikes. Last month, he met with an accident and he fell down from the bike. Luckily, his life was saved. He was left with some bruises on his face. That too could have been avoided if he used any sort of safety measures. He already has a helmet, but he is lazy to wear it. When I discussed this with my best friend, she asked me to purchase custom mouthguards from Mississauga and gift him on his birthday. I think it is a good idea. Is there anybody over here who has used mouthguards before? Was it cost-worthy? Can it be worn while riding bikes?
  10. Just a quick real-time update. If you are familiar with this area and this subject feel free to skip this post. I was at Hungry Valley yesterday and had a nice interaction with one of the rangers (opened a gate to rescue my bike which I broke) and we got to talking. I asked about UTV/ATV's and that it seemed like more of them. "Oh yeah, I don't think they should be legal here, this is a motorcycle friendly OHV and the trails are too narrow for UTV's..." (hard agree) I asked him about accidents and there was a long pause. "I've been airlifting someone out of here on average, once per week and a lot of them are UTV/Moto collisions." That's about 50 per year and in that type of collision the moto rider loses every single time. What's my point? Be safe, there are ton of new drivers UTV folks on the trails due to the pandemic. I'm likely going to avoid HV on weekends from now on. I ride too fast to get into a header with some stupid RAZR driver blasting music and not paying attention.
  11. Back 40 years ago, when I was road racing, Snell helmets were the best for motorcycles. But in recent times, Snell focuses on car racing, which is bad for motorcycle crashes. This video does a good job of explaining the differences. The Snell Helmet Standard is Meaningless?
