  1. Helmets
    Greeting dear Riders, while searching for a good helmet I stumbled across the FIM Certification but when I look up a helmet that they have listed on their site I can't find the exact name they are listed for. Some are missing a "racing" or have an additional "s" in their name. Now the...

    An imporant reason of many motorcycles accidents is loss of equilibrium, especially during a skid; this applies also to motor scooters. To reduce this risk I propose installing a gyroscope with a vertical axis. This (in the simplest version) would make it difficult to slant on curves. So I...

    Hello, I have a 2003 Honda Shadow ACE 750. Are the top shock mounts on my bike cracking or is this just the chrome oxidizing? I’ve been monkeying around with the shocks getting a new rear fender on and off. Paul

    Hello all, I've recently joined the forums, and was hoping to seek out some advice. I will be newly licensed next month, and I am currently in the market for my first cruiser. The problem is that I am a 24 yr. old, 6'5", 350lb man that wears a size 15 6e shoe. Even my helmet, which was a 5XL...

    I have a KBC VR-1 Helmet that does not have a face shield. I received the helmet from my Uncle. I am confident in its integrity as he used it rarely. Will other face shields fit this helmet? Which ones? I am having a hard time to find a KBC specific helmet. Also are face shields one size...

    While cars keep getting new safety technologies (collision avoidance, blind spot monitoring, etc.), we get left behind. ABS got introduced much later for us. The only electronic safety mod I have is a brake light blinker I got from eBay which makes brake lights blink a certain pattern as soon...
  7. Helmets
    I've been noticing a trend lately where I live about who is going helmetless out here. Almost every single sportbike rider I've seen is wearing at least a helmet. (I think I've seen all but 2 within the past 3 months with no helmet.) Almost every single cruiser rider I've seen is not wearing a...

    Hi Everyone! I was just wondering if I could get some help from some of you. I’m a student in my final year of university studying Computer Science, and am designing a prototype data logger for use with motorcycles to try and improve safety. For the project I need to get some feedback as to...

    Hello and thank you to everyone taking a bit of time to read this. So, I'm relatively young (17) and my mother's boyfriend rides a 2009 R1200 RT. My mom's never been that big on the idea of motorcycles, but he has helped show her that with the right amount of precaution and safety, you can...

    Hey I know I'm not the first to come up with this, but how do y'all feel about LED lights on a motorcyclist's ankles which project 6 ft to his left and right for greater visibility, day and night? Picture it being like large glowing wings on the ground. Thoughts? Comments? Praise? Ridicule? Legal?
  12. Motorcycle Training, Safety, and Riding Techniques
    Hey Everyone. Ever think when you are riding on the roadways 'there are just too many darn car drivers out here'? Its a bit of an uneasy feeling right? I was thinking the other day about what it would be like if I could know which of the car drivers around me were in fact also motorcycle...

    I haven’t been able to find a web site for reliable reviews. Can you please recommend a motorcycle jacket that has great safety features? I have a road bike and prefer something without all the big logo’s and lettering.

    Hi everybody, I am some what new to the forum. This is great!! As a young blond girl everyone takes a double when they see me drive by on my motorcycle. You can imagine what they would do see me wear flippers water wings and inner tube goggles and a snorkel! Or how about standing on the back...
  15. First Bike / New Rider
    I am new rider, been a member here since before I purchased my bike and before getting endorsed. Now that everything is legal and I have my first bike, are there any tips for pre ride inspections? I manually check the brakes and all of the lighting, but should I be checking fluids before EVERY...
