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.

Icon Airframe Sauvetage Helmet Review
"I hear the drums echoing tonight. The Icon Airframe Sauvetage helmet new
for Spring 2013 is the full face compliment to the Icon Variant Big Game
helmet. This predatory graphic features leopard print topped off with a
Shark-tooth grin. The Sauvetage has us daydreaming about motorcycle safaris
through the African plains while Africa by Toto plays on repeat. For a full
detailed breakdown of the Icon Airframe helmet, check out this video:
REV'IT! Nautilus Jacket Review at RevZilla.com
REV'IT! Nautilus Jacket Review
The REV'IT! Nautilus Jacket is a new offering from Rev'it that is designed
for cooler weather riding and has a sport touring profile. The Nautilus
uses a combination of 600D polyester, wax polyester in high wear areas,
and Lorica at the back of the elbows for additional abrasion resistance.
While there are no vents on the Nautilus, a breathable waterproof Hydratex
lining will help the rider evaporate sweat in moderate temperatures. For
cooler days, a full sleeve detachable thermal liner can be zipped into
place and is easily removed when the temperature rises. CE approved Knox
armor comes equipped in the shoulders and elbows and the Nautilus is
prepared for the SeeSoft CE Level 2 back protector upgrade. Reflective
areas at the shoulders, upper arms and back help increase visibility and is
also prepared to take the REV'IT! Vest Connector HV. Offered in 4 color
options and in sizes XS-4XL.
Bell Rogue Helmet Review at RevZilla.com
Bell Rogue Helmet Review
In a word, Badass. The new Bell Rogue helmet is like nothing we've ever
seen before. The Rogue conjures images of menacing characters like Bane,
Sub Zero, and even Cobra Commander. The Rogue helmet looks like a half
helmet, but offers more protection against the elements than most 3/4
helmets. The adjustable and removable muzzle has been optimized to provide
rider comfort against road debris, bugs and even cold wind with the
separate breath guard in place. The molded TPU structure of the muzzle is
not designed to protect against impact, but would certainly be more
protective than an open face helmet. Multiple shell and EPS liners allow
for a better fit across the entire size range and the removable and
washable interior encompasses more of the head than most 3/4 helmets. A
unique Fidlock magnet makes for easy installation of the muzzle and can be
slipped off by raising the muzzle. For those who typically ride with an
open or half helmet and a bandanna, think of this as your half helmet and
bandanna on steroids. Offered in 4 color options and in sizes XS-2XL.

ADV Spotlight: Jim Hyde - The Man Behind RawHyde Adventures
Recently we visited the headquarters of RawHyde Adventures, the number one
off-road training program for adventure motorcycles in the United States.
During our visit, we got a chance to speak with the man behind RawHyde
Adventures, Jim Hyde, who gave us a tour of their 120+ acre California
training facility called RawHyde Ranch.
Throughout the day, we picked Jim Hyde's brain about different topics like
his off-road training philosophy, what he looks for in his coaches, the
true benefits of off-road adventure riding and more.

RawHyde Adventure Part II - The Adventure CV
This the the second part of the RawHyde Adventure School. After the
Introduction to Adventure course I took the first two day and the day at
Base Camp Alpha, I decided to take the Adventure CV ride. On this ride we
crossed into Death Valley via Goler Pass which is the toughest way to
enter into Death Valley. You will see from this album how tough it was!
What an amazing adventure.

At just $3,195, both the Cleveland CycleWerks Misfit cafe racer and Heist
bobber massively undercut every other motorcycle out there. At just 250cc,
they're also smaller than most bikes. Bargain or bogus? Grant and Wes take
CCW CEO Scott Colosimo riding in the California desert to find out. For

Scooter Crashes Into Guardrail on Mulholland
Click this link To watch all 80 crashes captured over the past four years.
Honda Elite crashes into the guardrail. A CHP officer was a short distance
up the road and on the scene immediately, he bandaged up the riders knee
and sent him on his way. No citation.
Mulholland Highway in Los Angeles has been a mecca for motorcycles & fast
cars for decades. Car and motorcycle clubs are regular visitors every
weekend. Jay Leno can often be found at the famous Rockstore and at a view
point called Lookout talking with fellow motor enthusiasts. Crashes are
common as well as a heavy police presence on most weekends. The Snake is a
two mile section of Mulholland above the Rockstore. Riders usually will
make multiple runs allowing me to move from corner to corner when
assembling rider videos. The speed limit is 45 mph, most riders are not
going much over that so the majority of tickets are crossing the line,
wheelies or equipment violations. Bicycles are up here all the time but
motorcycles and bikes seem to do fine together as long as the cyclists are
willing to stay to the right. Cars passing them are a bigger problem since
there is no shoulder and most turns are blind.
I mainly shoot on the last corner coming up because I can see much of the
road and photogs are expected. The turn gets it's fair share of crashes
but people crash other places also just no one is filming. The top corner I
shoot seem to average one crash every couple weeks in the summer, out of
many hundreds of riders. 911 emergency services are rarely called and
accidents are seldom reported since most riders do not get injured
severely. Google Street View - http://goo.gl/wsMi
