  • AMA Member Tested: Bell Moto-9 Carbon

    August 01, 2014

    For me, the Bell Moto-6 was a milestone in dirt-bike helmet design. Adding to the greatness was the option of the Jeremy McGrath replica graphics by Troy Lee Designs. Having that lightweight, comfortable helmet with the eye-catching signature graphics of Mr. Supercross always garnered attention.

  • AMA Member Tested: Motorcycle Stirrups

    July 01, 2014

    Motorcycle Stirrups are what you think they are—stirrups for motorcycles. Used in place of highway pegs, they are intended to ease leg strain on long rides.

  • AMA Member Tested: BILT Trinity Boots, Sedici Gloves

    July 01, 2014

    Living in Tucson, Ariz., where spring temperatures hover around 95 degrees, the BILT Trinity boots for women hold their own. They are all leather and waterproof—really waterproof. After riding through what I can best describe as a monsoon, my feet were still perfectly dry.

  • Member Tested: Factory Connection Suspension Revalve

    June 01, 2014

    Suspension is one of the most overlooked modifications. Riders instead opt for horsepower-chasing mods, which often just highlight poor suspension setup.

  • AMA Member Tested: Rev’It USA Chronos GTX Jacket

    May 01, 2014

    The Chronos GTX textile jacket from Rev’It USA is a good all-around jacket, but it’s particularly well suited for adventure riders who encounter all types of conditions and can benefit from comfort and comprehensive protection.

  • AMA Member Tested: Fly Racing Stingray

    May 01, 2014

    Fly Racing’s Stingray is designed to be a protective roost guard with a built-in hydration system. I have tried multiple brands of protectors, along with various hydration systems, and I’ve discovered that each was lacking in some area. I was eager to see how the Stingray stacked up.

  • AMA Member Tested: TwistedCore Compression Gear

    April 01, 2014

    At a glance, the idea behind TwistedCore compression gear seems counterintuitive. Designed for warm-weather riding, the base layers promise to make your ride cooler and more comfortable. “I thought layering was a practice for the cold,” you may think. Please read on.

  • AMA Member Tested: Excel TWS-206 Spoke Torque Wrench

    March 01, 2014

    I have been using the Excel TWS-206 spoke torque wrench to build and service motorcycle wheels. It’s a high-quality kit that, in the right hands, can produce professional results.

  • AMA Member Tested: Motion Pro Revolver Throttle Kit

    March 01, 2014

    For decades, dirtbikes have come with different-rate throttles for different applications. Trail bikes would come with a longer-pull “enduro” throttle and motocross bikes would come quick-opening throttles, some going from closed to wide open in just a quarter turn.

  • AMA Member Tested: Arai Defiant

    March 01, 2014

    The main things I look for in a helmet are safety, fit, comfort, distinguishing features, looks and price point. Let’s start with safety. The Arai brand already has an established reputation for the safety aspect of design. The Arai Defiant that I received for testing has the emergency cheek pad release system from the RX-Q line that enables medics to slide the helmet off a crashed rider’s head more easily.
