Barkbusters Blizzard HandguardsBarkbusters, whose original handguard design in 1984 has now become the industry standard, is leading the way again with the revolutionary new Blizzard.
The Blizzard is made of a lightweight, semi-rigid material and durable, abrasion-resistant textile fabric that encircles the grip and levers, creating a cave of warmth and protection and making this cool new product unlike any other handguard available for motorcycles today.Unlike other “muff” type products that might hinder the rider’s ability to extract their hands quickly in the event of an emergency, the unique enclosure of the Blizzard is a perfect balance between protection from the elements, good looks, and safety.The flexibility of the Blizzard material allows it to bend when contacting objects such as windscreens and tankbags, thereby allowing almost any motorcycle, snowmobile, or ATV to be fitted with the handguards.The unique flexible, yet rigid design will not flap at speed and even provides some protection against small objects such as stones, hail, or brush.In the event a rider already has standard handguards installed, the Blizzard can be fitted over the existing backbone. They can be attached or removed in minutes via a hook and loop strap on the control side of the handlebar, and a simple screw in the bar-end.Included in the Blizzard kit is a wide range of hardware to facilitate mounting to handlebar weights, hollow handlebars, and existing aluminum handguard backbones. Available now from Twisted Throttle and dealerships throughout North America.
Hello everyone and welcome once again to Motos and Friends, the weekly podcast brought to you by Ultimate Motorcycling. My name is Arthur Coldwells.
Motos and Friends is brought to you by Yamaha. You can check out the amazing YZF-R7 at your local Yamaha dealer, or of course at YamahaMotorsports.com. The YZF-R7 is an amazing supersport machine that is comfortable too!
In this week’s first segment, Editor Don Williams takes the smallest BMW ADV bike on an urban adventure in Los Angeles. The BMW G 310 GS is a full size motorcycle with a modest engine, so of course we wonder if it is a little too underpowered and might struggle. Don put it through its paces and gives us his take.
In the second segment, Neale Bayly and Kiran Ridley have returned from the Ukraine to Paris where Kiran is based.
Kiran is an award winning photojournalist, and as an accomplished documentarian, he has covered stories as diverse as drug smuggling around the Mexican border, to the devastation of the Australian Bush Fires, to the tragedy of the Mediterranean migration crisis. Neale and Kiran reminisce about their motorcycle adventure in the Ukraine, and their observations and experiences with the incredibly resilient people of Ukraine, who have been put through such brutal hardship.
