more agv helmet news

AGV has stepped it up again for 2010 with some new helmets that are out now and some that will be released over the next few months. The AGV T2 is an evolution of the famed AGV Ti-Tech helmet and features an SSL (super-super light) Carbon-Kevlar shell that comes in 3 sizes. The helmet is available in sizes XS to XXXL. The T2 is light, every light. Lighter than the TiTech by a little and like the TiTech, the T2 falls into AGV's race helmet line-up, providing a snug fit that is ideal for racing and track days. But the cool thing about this helmet is that AGV has released a line they call "legendary racers", with graphics to compliment well known racers including Giacomo Agostini , Barry Sheen and Angel Nieto . Look for more racer replicas to come out in the future. And so far we know about two limited edition Valentino Rossi helmets that will be available this spring. They are the Rossi Donkey GP Tech helmet and the Mugello Rossi GP Tech . As we go to press, the Rossi he

Motorcyclists to the rescue in Haiti

In the midst of the devastation in Haiti, I've read numerous reports where motorcycles have been used effectively in the chaos that followed in the wake of the earthquake. With roads clogged, debri blocking roadways, traffic congestion from other cars and people and mayhem everywhere, motorcycles are being used as the only effective mode of transportation where cars can't go. Motorcycles are being used to carry in supplies to demolished city centers and they are being used as transportation for city officials to survey the area as they try to bring things back together. With communication systems down, motorcycles are also being used to carry messages back and forth in the chaos.

First Aid Kits For Motorcyclists

Picture this familiar scene: you're riding along your favorite twisty back road. You've been riding with your buddies for hours and you're way deep in the thick of it, 30 minutes at least from the closest fire department or medical facility. You reach a part of the ride that is technical, twisty and trafficless and your buddy (who's been on your rear tire for that past twenty minutes) decides he's tired of looking at your arse all day and it's time to make a pass. Problem is, he should have done this 10 minutes ago on that long straight and you watch as he blips by you and proceeds to skid off the road, onto the shoulder and down. How many times has this happened, whether in your party, or another party? The more miles you get under your belt, the more experience you gain, the more stories you'll have or hear of crashes, accidents and calamities. And a very similar story can be told for off-road. You're out enjoying the trail, deep in the woods on some g
