    CB500X Launch

    These little bikes are sweet. I am a bit confused... Why would you not consider this CB500X a "Real" Adventure bike? So many RTW riders choose the BMW 650 due to it's light weight nature, durability and reliability... Others take DR650's and even Vstrom 650's. What about the "small displacement" makes them seemingly not so adventurous to you? What makes an "Adventure Bike" and adventure bike per se?

    CRF1100L Coming?

    Having been on the Adventure Sport for the past month... I totally agree about the Ergo's. It is a VERY comfortable bike!

    Michelin Anakee Adventure Tire

    Having spend two weekends on this tire and hitting nearly every terrain possible... This is a SOLID Adventure Tire. Check out the Full Length Feature Film showcasing this tire in Fast Paced Freeway, Tight Twisties, Dirt Roads, Mud, Deep Sand and even Snow! Shop these tires at Chaparral Motorsports: Front Anakee Adventure: https://www.chapmoto.com/michelin-anakee-adventure-front-tire-parent-190-08568 Rear Anakee Adventure: https://www.chapmoto.com/michelin-anakee-adventure-rear-tire-parent-190-30431 These Michelin Anakee Adventure Tires fill perfectly the void between the Anakee III and the Anakee Wild. Similar, but much more advanced technologically than the "Original Anakee," the "Original Tourance," or the K76 ADVENTURE tires from years past... This tire Excels at what Michelin says it will do. It is slated as a 70 to 80% Road Tire with a splash of off-road-ability capable of most anything you can throw it into. Well, we tested that theory. Here is my 5 Star Rating for each Terrain: ***** Highway : This tire was quiet, smooth and did not get headshake at any speed. ***** Bi-way : 1 or 2 lane twisty roads this tire ate up. Hammering full throttle, braking hard into corners and full throttle out... this tire excelled. ***** Hardpack Dirt Road : Handled like it was on the highway throwing a good roost. ***** Wet Pavement : Was able to pull the front wheel off the ground without wheel spin and was able to hammer twisties. Loved it. **** Gravel Roads : Backed in a bit... but was to be expected. Front tire needs to be "straight up and down." **** Deep Sand : Compared to a knobby tire it would be a *** but as compared to other tires in its class... it moved the bike forward well. Did not like the front tire here... but the rear performed well above my expectations. ** Larger Loose Rocks : This was the worst performing "normal terrain" we encountered. When the tire was kicked sideways, it did not "regrip" on the landing. This was a factor in 1 decent crash and many more pucker factor situations. ** Snow : This tire did not do well in Snow. The tread groves got filled with snow / turned into Ice and well.... that was the end of it. Michelin says that this tire fits into its Adventure Touring tire range between the 50/50 Anakee Wild tires and the 90/10 Anakee 3 tires. I totally agree. It really did well in most settings. 80% on-road, 20% off-road 2CT and 2CT+ compounds Fitment for popular ADV bikes * 13 Sizes by the end of 2019. I would run this REAR tire for sure and would probably run the Anakee Wild up front... for Maxium Traction Off-Road with Maximum Longevity in the rear. My 2 Cents...

    Taste of Dakar 2019

    I love the CycleWorld rides! Attended the event at China Peak several years in a row... Best "Group Ride" / event I have ever attended.

    Motoz Tractionator RallZ

    These Motoz RallZ tires really are amazing. I have been running them for just over 3k miles now... and at 30 psi they just work - EVERYWHERE. Watch this video in which I show you how this tire works in most types of terrains including 100+ mph on the highway, fast twisty corners, dirt roads and even our arch nemesis Deep Sand! I picked mine up from Chaparral Motorsports: https://www.chapmoto.com/motoz--tractionator #Motoz #tractionatorrallz #adventuretire #ktm1190 #ktm1190adv

    ICON Helmets Statement

    This is a very interesting topic. ANY helmet which as been in an crash should be thrown away and replaced, regardless of what the "outer shell looks like." So, to ban a type of helmet that does not show external damage when there might be hidden internal damage sounds strange to me... I have personally been down in Arai, Icon, Shark and even Z1R and all have "protected my head" the same. Ironically... the only accident I received a concussion during was the 3rd most violent of the 4... and I was wearing and Arai Profile helmet. Go figure.

    Motoz Tires

    Desert HT's are off and the RallZ tires are mounted! In this video you will see my used up Desert H/T tires, next to a brand new set... next to the RallZ tire next to the Tractionator Adventure Tire. Three different tires for three different riders. Pretty neat. What do you think? Take a look:

    Motoz Tires

    I ride 90+ MPH on a daily basis. In this video you can see 95 mph is my cruising speed on the highway with a top speed of 135mph. My freeway speed every day is between 80mph and 95mph for stretches of 25 miles to 70 miles depending on my destination which equals 200+ highway miles a week. I am currently running Motoz Desert HT Tubeless tires. They do well at high speeds, but off- road is where they excel and why I have them mounted. The 150 miles of OFF Road riding I do on the weekends demands a good and reliable knobby tire.

    Motoz Tires

    I used to have that problem too... 1.5K was the most I have ever gotten out of a TKC 80 or a Rally Raid tire. The Motoz tires, do last longer. Longer on my KTM 950 Super Enduro. Longer on my BMW R1200GSA. And longer on my KTM 1190 Adv R then any other tires I have run previously. Well, except for the K60 Scouts... but those were sketchy!
