    Hi Everyone. I’m a new rider from Toronto, Canada and I’m specifically looking for reco’s to buy an armoured long sleeve shirt for hot summer days.

    Hey guys. I just got back into riding and I'm used to wearing textile gear, but I decided to go with leather gear this time. I'm kinda confused in terms of how a sports-leather jacket is supposed to fit. The jacket I'm wearing is snug but it looks pretty short. My belly is exposed if I raise my...

    Hi all! I've recently built a Ninja 250 shifter kart using original parts from the bike, i.e. chain and sprocket and the gearing is way to tall, I need to find a much smaller 520 sprocket, around 15 - 25t, but am having trouble finding anything here in Australia. Would anything other than a...

    I took off the cluch lever and brake lever to paint them from silver to black on my Suzuki. I followed a youtube tutorial, since i had never done it before. And it was actually simpler than i thought. But now that i am done, the bike wont go into gear. I have not touched any setting things on...

    My boyfriend is just about to buy his first bike and I want to get him some good quality gear (that won’t break the bank!) He already bought a helmet but that’s it. He doesn’t want to wear a thick jacket since it’s rather hot where we live, I still want him protected though. So any...

    After fixing my '82 Yamaha Maxim, I proceeded to attempt to ride it. I'll be honest, I'm very new and awful at shifting, so PLEASE don't give me crud. I managed to shift into first after a few failed attempts, which usually entailed me having no clue on how to use the clutch, and having a...

    I ride a semi automatic motorcycle. What does it mean, if my bike doesn't go into neutral pushing the pedal down? When I'm in the top gear and press down the shifter, nothing happens. The 4th gears stays engaged. When I'm not in top gear and push down the shifter, it shift immediately. And if I...

    Hey guys! So I've bought a Yamaha drag star 125 (my first bike!) about a month ago, and have recently have started to get issues with it. And as I don't trust myself yet to do any diagnostics myself I want to get your opinions! So the issues are: When I start the bike in neutral and switch to...

    I have several women friends interested in being a passenger. I am looking to buy one set of knee, elbow, back, and hopefully shoulder protection that could work on all of them. This must be freeway worthy. I am currently considering the strap on pads because they should conceptually fit any...
  10. First Bike / New Rider
    Hi, I just got my first bike and have been doing a little bit of Interstate riding and was wondering if a dedicated motorcycle jacket such as an armrored Cordura or leather is superior to a heavyweight casual leather jacket I already own + motocross style upper body armor? Dedicated jackets...

    So I am taking the BRC this weekend and I believe I am buying a used Ninja 250r from a friend. 1. What are some good brands to look for when purchasing a helmet, gloves, etc.? 2. Is it necessary to buy all the gear including jacket, pants, boots? Or can I get away with a helmet and...

    Hi there! I am a newbie, going to be taking the beginners course in 2 weeks. I wanted to buy some body armor for myself, but can only seem to find one's for men. I have looked around my city for any bike shops we may have, but there are none close to my area. And the only one in my town...
