Federal lawmakers have sent a bipartisan letter to the leadership of a key U.S. House committee to urge support for a bill that prohibits federal funding for motorcycle-only traffic checkpoints, the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) reports.
Novelty motorcycle helmets may look the part, but many – if not all – fail to meet federal safety standards.
These dubious novelty helmets feature a Department of Transportation (DOT) approved label, but most are counterfeit, according to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Youth Motorcycle Helmets
Finding a youth motorcycle helmet option that doesn’t compromise on safety and style can be a difficult process for parents.
One helmet from Z1R that offers a solution and provides maximum safety, protection and attention to detail is the Youth Strike Blitz.
Finding the right three-quarter helmet can be an arduous process. Locating that helmet which delivers the fit and the airflow riders demand can often create more problems than solutions.
One helmet from Z1R that alleviates those concerns, and delivers maximum comfort and great airflow while you’re out on the road is the Ace Transit.
A federal lawmaker has introduced legislation to prevent the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) from giving money to states and local jurisdictions for motorcycle-only checkpoints, the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) reports.
Hand-Pinstriped Moto Helmets
Have you ever wanted to incorporate a handcrafted piece of hot rod nostalgia into your biker lifestyle? If so, Licks has your FIX. Licks Cycles has hooked up with some of the hottest pin stripers in the motorcycle industry to produce custom striped lids that scream smokin’!
Starting Saturday morning, January 16, KTM Ride Orange will provide street demo rides to interested customers free of charge. This event is sponsored by Motohouse KTM. Demo rides will start at 10:00am and go until 4:00pm. The ride will leave from the Motohouse KTM dealership and will run approximately 15 minutes in length around North Phoenix.
Features and Form
Looking for a stylish, safe and reasonably priced lid? Well, we came across the new Scorpion EXO-1000 motorcycle helmet. Aerodynamically styled, the motorcycle helmet is not only lightweight but also advanced in many ways. With its fibreglass and Kevlar composite shell it has a number of interesting features that I was enthusiastic to experience.
Head of the Class
Many motorcycle industry insiders have long regarded Arai as the best motorcycle helmet (period). I guess this comes from experience. For instance, twice bouncing my Arai covered head off the racetrack pavement in the last decade and still having the good judgment to write this story maybe proof enough.
Confirm DOT Standards
The motorcycle Helmet Check website was developed by the Motorcycle Industry Council’s (MIC) Helmet Task Force. It is for motorcycle riders to verify that a helmet they own, or are considering for purchase, complies with the U.S. Department of Transportation’s safety standard (FMVSS 218) is now live. This will assist riders with motorcycle helmets that no longer have the DOT sticker or riders that question whether the DOT sticker is authentic.
Billet Clutch Slave
Personalizing your Ducati motorcycle with billet components can improve durability, reduce weight, improve strength and increase performance. We found a nifty billet clutch slave cylinder in the Ducati Accessories catalog that looks great on any 2001 or later Ducati equipped with a dry clutch. We ordered the red one (also available in gold) for our 2009 Ducati Monster 1100 S project bike.
Hassle-Free Retractable Sun Shield
The days (and hassle) of stopping a ride to either add or remove a tinted face shield are over, thanks to the new men’s Half Helmet with Retractable Sun Shield ($175) from the Harley-Davidson MotorClothes line. When light conditions change, a quick pull or push deploys or retracts the internal tinted shield, allowing you to remain focused on the road. Like most MotorClothes helmets, this one features a removable, washable inner liner, double D-ring chin strap and comes with a protective bag.
