Like a good Boy Scout it's best practice to always be prepared.
That means carrying along some basic tools whenever you wonder off
in the back country, desert, or two-wheeled road trip. This compact
[mageProductLink sku="254-3812-0050" title=""]tool
bag[/mageProductLink] (tools not included) from American Kargo is
perfect for any rider allowing them to put together their own carry
along tool kit. The tool bag features a full 270 degree main
zipper, strong dual-layer webbing for secure tool placement, and a
large pocket. Toss it into a storage compartment or secure it to
your frame or roll cage with the Velcro straps.
A battery maintenance device is by far one of the most valuable
items you can give any motorsports enthusiast. The [mageProductLink
sku="321-2100" title=""]Super Smart Battery Tender
Plus[/mageProductLink] will keep just about any motorcycle, ATV,
UTV, boat, car, or truck battery fully charged and ready to go at a
moment's notice. Just connect the Tender to a battery, plug the
Tender into a power outlet and you're done. Leave it for a day, a
week, or a season, you don't have to worry about overheating or
overcharging, the Battery Tender will automatically switch to Float
Mode when the battery is fully charged to keep the battery safe and
Off roading with your children creates great family memories. The
problem is, often times their helmets can be too heavy or
cumbersome making them look like bobbleheads as they motor down the
trial. A neck brace like [mageProductLink sku="110-724091"
title=""]EVS' Youth RCS Race Collar[/mageProductLink] can make a
huge difference, filling the space between the shoulders and bottom
of the helmet, thus keeping the child's head from wobbling around
and potentially causing injury. This collar is easy to get on and
off and the front secures together with a combination of Velcro and
a clip. It also has connection loops to attach to chest protectors
and has a removable/washable liner.
Believe it or not, but teenage and adult dirt bike riders can get
just as much enjoyment out of some new stickers as a young kid can.
The difference is, rather than placing the stickers all over your
refrigerator, the "elders" like to affix new stickers to their dirt
bikes. Factory Effex has a wide assortment of [mageProductLink
sku="fx17-50204" title=""]sticker kits[/mageProductLink] for just
about all dirt bike makes and models. A sticker kit can help a
tired and beat up motorcycle look fresh and clean a gain.
You could make someone's year just buy giving them a simply piece
of paper. Attending a Supercross event is an awesome experience,
and with reigning SX Champ Ryan Villopoto heading overseas this
season to compete it will make the race for a new champ all that
more exciting. Tickets can be had for as little as $39 for events
like the San Diego race while you can pick up a ticket for one of
the three highly popular Anaheim races starting at $50.
This kid's KTM backpack is the space shuttle of backpacks. It
features a larger main pack with a smaller detachable bag connected
to it. Actually, the secondary bag is a lunchbox. The
backpack/lunch bag combination makes it easy for kids to keep up
with their school work and nutrition regimen.
Speaking of bags, this [mageProductLink sku="124-5005"
title=""]Ocelot gear bag[/mageProductLink] is perfect for hauling
riding gear from track to track or taking on long trips. This bag
measures 28"W x 18"L x 16"H, is constructed of 420 denier nylon and
has a large easy-to-access main compartment to store your helmet,
jersey, and riding pants. There's a separate compartment to store
your boots and two large exterior pockets for items like your
gloves, wallet, keys and phone.
This [mageProductLink sku="03-8211-1305-00" title=""]helmet
bag[/mageProductLink] can come in very handy in those sketchy areas
where it's not really safe to leave a motorcycle helmet behind on
the motorcycle. It can also be useful for students who commute to
school on two wheels or motorcycle riders who travel a lot and need
to take their helmet with them. The bag has a messenger style strap
to make for easy hands free carrying with a large main compartment
big enough for most street helmets. The inside has a soft liner so
it won't scratch the helmet and there's also a pocket to carry an
extra face shield.
Bicycle riding is low impact and quickly gets the heart pumping,
therefor more and more dirt bike riders and fitness enthusiast are
taking to pedal power to supplement their training and exercise
program. This [mageProductLink sku="tl1754-0808" title=""]Skyline
bicycle Jersey[/mageProductLink] from Troy Lee Designs is ideal for
hardcore cyclists because it's extremely lightweight, form fitting
without being restrictive, and made from a highly breathable
moisture wicking material to keep the rider cool and dry. This
jersey is available in an assortment of colors and there are
versions to fit both men and women.
You could actually save someone's life by gifting them this
[mageProductLink sku="353-018116" title=""]mini air
compressor[/mageProductLink]. Okay maybe it's not that drastic, but
this little puffer could really get someone out of jam if they end
up with a flat out in the middle of nowhere. It comes with a sturdy
carrying case which measures only 6"H x 6"W x 2 1/4"D and holds the
compressor along with several accessories like fuse alligator
clips, a lighter adapter, and a direct pre-wire lead. Best of all
the 8-foot main harness power cord will allow the user to get the
compressor to most tires on their vehicle.
