    HOT & HUMID weather jacket recommendation needed

    My preference is also to have NO COLLAR on a mesh jacket.

    HOT & HUMID weather jacket recommendation needed

    Every Joe Rocket jacket I've seen has elbow and shoulder armor, though many jackets like ones from other companies uses a foam back insert rather than actual armor – though the Joe Rocket one is larger and probably more protective than most. Still, getting a back protector that really breathes...

    Best rainsuit?

    That must be the same fabric my Dainese Storm jacket has. Really great stuff, packs almost as small as coated ripstop, has a great streamlined fit without being constricting, seems to be very durable and does not flap in the wind/gusting.

    Best rainsuit?

    Hate inner liners. Too slow/hard to put them in when a sudden storm hits, and most of the rest of the time they are sweatboxes. A lot easier to whip raingear over what I already have on (zip calves on the pants). Since the basis of my riding gear is mesh until it consistently gets below 50F, I...

    Best rainsuit?

    Yeah, Greg, Same with mesh and quick dry underlayers. Here, sometimes up high even when it's been hot the temperature drops rapidly and that's when I hit the raingear. And of course in the other seasons, when it's not only serves as raingear but as another thermal layer as well. I snagged...

    NC700X vs. DR650 Today - Looking to add some dirt to my life

    Could read some DR650 thoughts on ADVPulse.com, as well as using search here. It'll stomp an NC700x's ass anywhere off pavement. More than 110 pounds lighter, no fat 17" wheel on front, dirt bike plastic goodness with more durability and easy to remove for maintenance... If you don't really need...

    Corbin seat

    Well, at least that pillion seat unlike many out there has a concave instead of a convex cross-section. Human anatomy 101 ; }

    NC700X vs. DR650 Today - Looking to add some dirt to my life

    Another bike that I could probably ride anywhere I currently care to go is the new KTM 390 Adventure.

    NC700X vs. DR650 Today - Looking to add some dirt to my life

    I bought a used WR250R that already had a lowering link after riding a dealer demo CRF250L back when it was introduced. My original intention was to buy a CRF as soon as they could get me one but unless someone canceled their pre-order I would be waiting for most of the riding season. So I hit...

    Product Specialization Evidently there is a SeriusXM station for Harley riders that plays only music that cannot possibly live up to "Born To Be Wild" or "If You Want To Be A Bird", with all tunes compressed to be as loud as the laws of physics allow at 20% THD. And another company that makes...

    Two Variations 1. This one hasn't looked in a rear view mirror except when backing up since Mount Vesuvius blew. When you get to a short area for passing they speed up from their otherwise excruciatingly slow pace. It's not that they are trying to thwart you – it's just that they feel capable...

    2020: What did you do to/with your NC700 today?

    I don't think it made it past 88F today. Sure felt moderate. Anyway, for the first part of the day I rode with John from Ohio. He's on a Super Tenere that's been 43,000+ miles in about two-and-a-half years. Got along great. Too bad he was heading out, but we'll be in touch again. Here's a few...

    2020: What did you do to/with your NC700 today?

    Kinda sucky today: tourist hell. Fortunately one can always find a parking place on a bike, or a place where people aren't stacked 10 deep. But when it comes to driving, evidently a vacation means you can forget safety, common sense, courtesy, rules of the road, and how to park ; }

    I could speculate, agree or debate, but I'll just leave you with this as I go out for a ride after skipping yesterday. 2020-08-02 15;21;05 by greenboy, on Flickr

    We could do a ride if you are around. PM your phone # if that sounds good.

    2020: What did you do to/with your NC700 today?

    No help needed with a lot of so-called pro photographers hungry for commissions. I'm glad to not have to play that game : } ...With Montana's initial low Covid figures, everybody figured this was a great place to come. Clueless locals are only lately discovering that masks and social...
