REV’IT Urban Collection Preview at Beach Moto

In Blog by Abhi2 Comments

I’m ashamed to confess that when I first heard about REV’IT, something about the name made me think it was a cheap in-house brand from a store like Cycle Gear. It wasn’t until I went on a group adventure camp/ride to Death Valley and I saw nearly 50% of the riders with REV’IT suits that I realized I had made …

190 Miles – 1982 Honda CX500 Turbo

In Blog by AbhiLeave a Comment

Post Sale Update: This CX TUrbo sold for $8,722 after 43 bids on eBay. The predecessor to the CX650T, the Honda CX500 Turbo was a confusing bike.

In Blog by AbhiLeave a Comment

As a good friend of mine puts it, “Petrolicious has become the thinking-person’s Jalopnik, and continues to amaze.” After poking around the site (and spending way too much time there), I can’t say I’d disagree – not that I don’t enjoy Jalopnik! Nevertheless, the reason I bring all this up is because Petrolicious just featured some of the most detailed …

For all you that think the big trailies are only useful for on fire roads, Chris Birch proves yet again that the most important factor is the rider. There’s a little bit of repetition in this video, but I assure you that it’s worth it – particularly the bit starting at 1:25 (repeated again in slow motion at 1:41):

Ride to Alaska – For Free! (sort of)

In Blog by AbhiLeave a Comment

In the world of adventure motorcycle rentals and guided tours, few companies have had success like MotoQuest. I’ve only met a few of their employees, but all of them have been knowledgeable, friendly, and passionate about getting people out and exploring on motorcycles. As you might guess, they offer one-way rentals – but that can lead to inventory problems. So …
