RevZilla Rides RawHyde
We sent our most hardened RevZillans to RawHyde Adventures in Southern California for a crash course (pun only slightly intended) in all things ADV. And all in the name of proudly announcing our new endeavor as the official Gear Partner of RawHyde Adventures. We saw lots of rain, a ton of mud and had an incredible learning experience with the best ADV crew in the business. Be sure to check out http://revzilla.com/rawhyde for more info.
Held Phantom II Gloves Review at RevZilla.com
Held Phantom II Gloves Review
The Held Phantom 2 Gloves are the latest generation of the popular Phantom
gloves that received several upgrades for 2013. The Phantom 2 have a new
knuckle construction that is made of a single piece of TPU with a titanium
cover that is bonded to the glove without using screws. The Phantom 2 have
an updated fit with a knuckle construction that better shapes to the hand
and a cuff that eliminates some bulk. The Phantom is fully constructed of
kangaroo leather with additional protection provided by SuperFabric and
Stingray leather. The new cuff construction is better shaped to the wrist
and uses SuperFabric for abrasion resistance. At the palm side, one layer
or kangaroo across the inside of the knuckles was removed to increase grip
feel. For additional comfort, flex areas have been added to the thumb,
index and middle finger. The original Phantom has been a rider favorite
since it hit the market in 2005 and the updates for this year are all
welcomed additions. The Phantom 2 will be offered in 6 color options and in
Held numeric sizes 7-12.
2014 Motorcycle Tires Buying Guide at RevZilla.com
2014 Motorcycle Tires Buying Guide
description&utm_campaign=2014_Motorcycle_Tires_Buying_Guide Wrapping up our
Gear Guide series for 2014, the Motorcycle Tires Buying Guide will
highlight some of our favorite options for the upcoming riding season. In
an effort to simplify this years selections we have broken the guide into
three categories, Sport/Hypersport, Touring/Adventure, and V-Twin/Cruiser
tires. Leading off the Sport/Hypersport category for the second year in a
row is the Michelin Pilot Power 3. Great on the street or the track it is
hard to find a better tire for the weekend warriors among us who still
commute to the office on Monday. The Dunlop Sportmax Q3 is geared at the
aggressive sportbike rider while the Pilot Street Radial opens up new doors
for those riders wanting better shoes for their Ninja 300 or CBR 250R. Two
years after the release of the Pilot Road 3 Michelin raises the bar in the
Touring/Adventure category once again with the Pilot Road 4. With better
grip, better handling, and longer life there is no apparent downside to
this tire. Metzler has designed the Karoo 3 for the dual sport rider that
wants to ride as hard in the dirt as he does on the street and the Heidenau
K60 Scout picks up when the road gets really gnarly. Three for three,
Michelin takes home our favorite tire in the V-Twin/Cruiser category with
the Commander II with a claimed range of 25,000 miles. If you do not feel
like springing for the Michelin, the Metzeler ME888 is a excellent
alternative. For those of you that are looking for American rubber to match
your American iron, the Dunlop American Elite tires are made in New York
and come in a wide variety of sizes both with and without white wall
options. No matter what you ride, we have a tire to suit your style. Let us
help you find it.
2013 Adventure and Dual Sport Motorcycle Gloves Buying Guide at RevZilla.com
2013 Adventure and Dual Sport Motorcycle Gloves Buying Guide
For those who prefer the road less traveled, our Adventure and Dual Sport
Glove Guide showcases our picks for the riders who keep going when the
pavement ends. This carefully selected list of Adventure and Dual Sport
gloves range from the more lightweight-motocross inspired gloves to the
beefed up protection required by the intercontinental adventure rider. The
Astars Dual Glove is our lightest, most comfortable pick that is minimal in
protection and maximum in airflow. The newbie REV'IT Neutron glove is a
medium knuckle that works on and off road that won't inhibit the rider
who's working hard in the saddle. The Klim Adventure glove is an
all-around, comfortable dual sport pick we can't ignore in this category.
The Held Sambia is the only kangaroo option in this line up that offers
superior tactile feel and ultimate abrasion protection. The REV'IT! Sand
Pro is the next gen Sand glove that increases is protection package and is
made from durable, water resistant hairsheep leather. The Rukka Vauhti is
the pinnacle pick with no compromises in protection or waterproofing with
its Gore-Tex X-trafit technology. Any of these options won't let you down
as you ride off into the sunset.
2013 Touring and Commuter Motorcycle Gloves Buying Guide at RevZilla.com
2013 Touring and Commuter Motorcycle Gloves Buying Guide
Rain or shine, the daily commuter and long distance rider put their gloves
through the paces. In this curated collection of gloves, we showcase our
top picks for the touring and commuter that range from bomb proof Gore-Tex
to subtle styled short cuff. The Astars Scheme is sporty but subtle in its
style and offers comfort from day one. The Kilimanjaro Air and the Dirt
glove are designed for warm weather with picks for those who prefer more
protection or a more laid back style. The Turnbuckle glove is a glove that
is welcomed in any riding genre from sport to v-twin to adventure riders
and is made of one of the softest feeling leathers we've seen. The Summit
H2O offers Gore-like performance at an affordable price, comes in a ladies
version, and doesn't skimp on protection. The grandad of the bunch is the
Dainese Contact Gore-Tex glove that is our Italian, sexy, performance glove
that could be the ultimate sport touring, 3 season glove option. Regardless
of your ride, if you are out for a long haul or your daily commute, these
picks fit the bill.

RawHyde Adventure Part I HD.mp4
This is the first album about my trip to RawHyde Adventure School. I took
the Intro to Adventure class and then did the CV ride into Death Valley.
The experience was fantastic! The people I meet (all with similar
enjoyment of the sport and adventure bikes) were a really special group of
people. I have had no idea my bike (1200GS) would be able to handle this
type of terrain. I learned that it can!
Such a beautiful place

Triumph Tiger 800 XC and Tiger Explorer 1200 Review: Cat Video
The Tiger 800 XC and Tiger Explorer 1200 are a direct attack on BMW's
F800GS Siegfried and R1200GS Roy, but the Triumphs are well capable of
standing on their own merits. That raises another question, which big cat
to take home? http://OneWheelDrive.Net puts the two Tigers to the test to

Triumph Tiger 800 Review
Ok so I have had my Tiger 800 a year now so I thought it would be a good
idea to do a review on it. I have tryed to mix it up a little bit with this
video so there are some of my usual helmet cam shots to a little music but
then I get a little creative (only a little mind). I do have to warn you
that on this video I get infront of the camera & talk alot..........
aparently when talking about motorbikes I like the sound of my own voice!
So I appologise that this video is quite long!
Baja in 6 days - Ducati Diavel Strada - MotoGeo Adventures

mile road trip.
Pack your backs and hit the road.
