• Hilleberg Brings Out New Models for 2021
    by Wenling Pan on September 22, 2020 at 9:18 pm

    Published in: NewsHilleberg is proud to introduce two new tent models for 2021: the Black Label Soulo BL, a very strong, remarkably roomy and fully freestanding all-season solo tent, and the Yellow Label Helags, available in a 2 and a 3 person version, a very light, two vestibule tunnel tent built for the snow-free months of the year. Based on the original, Red Label Soulo, first introduced over 10 years ago, the new Soulo BL is Hilleberg’s first true Black Label solo tent. Fully freestanding, including an integrated vestibule, the Soulo BL is remarkably roomy and excels in any terrain and any weather condition. “Our original Soulo is very strong,” says Petra Hilleberg, CEO of the Hilleberg Group and president of Hilleberg the Tentmaker. “For over a decade, it has been the solo tent of choice for demanding trips, from Greenland crossings to Himalayan climbing expeditions. The Soulo BL adds even greater strength, security and margin of safety.” Weighing 2.8 kg/6 lbs 3 oz, just 400 g/14 oz more than the Red Label Soulo, the new Soulo BL features the Kerlon 1800 outer tent fabric (which has an 18 kg/40 lb tear strength) and DAC NSL 10 mm poles found in all Hilleberg Black Label tents. “We have long wanted a true Black Label one-person tent, and given both the performance and popularity of our Red Label Soulo, it seemed that a Black Label version would be the most elegant solution,” says Petra. “The new Soulo BL is our strongest solo tent.” Available in May of 2021, the Soulo BL has an MSRP of $825 USD. Hilleberg Yellow Label tents are ideal choices for the snow-free months of the year, and the new Helags 2 and Helags 3 are no exception. Patterned after the Black Label Keron and Red Label Kaitum, they offer two vestibules, spacious interiors with vertical ends and near vertical side walls, and generous inner tent height. “The new Helags models are outstanding backpacking tents for the snow-free times of the year,” says Petra. “Both are roomy, airy, very light, and very comfortable.” The Helags has curved, catenary patterning on the outer tent walls and large, all mesh inner tents doors for constant venting, and both outer tent doors can be rolled either partially or fully to the side for even more air flow. And, like all Yellow Label models, the Helags is built with Kerlon 1000 outer tent fabric – offering an 8 kg/17.5 lb tear strength – and DAC NSL 9 mm poles. “The Helags – and all Yellow Label tents – are remarkably strong,” says Petra. “Their 9 mm poles are the same ones we use in the all-season Red Label series, and they provide excellent strength to weight ratio.” The Helags 2 and 3 will be available in May of 2021 and have MSRPs of $985 and $1065 USD respectively. For more information on the Soulo BL and the Helags, contact tentmaker@hilleberg.com, or visit our website hilleberg.com.

  • Mystery KTM Model Leaked Alongside Norden 901
    by Wenling Pan on September 18, 2020 at 7:15 pm

    Published in: News   Unveiled as a concept bike at the 2019 EICMA show, Husqvarna’s Norden 901 stirred the proverbial ADV pot with its possible 890cc entry into the adventure motorcycle market. Filling a space between its sister company KTM’s 790 Adventure and the larger 1190 Adventure, the Norden 901 was just what the doctor ordered for many enthusiasts. It is important to note, however, that the 901 was nothing more than a concept, which left a lot of doubt as to whether the Swedish brand would actually bring the Norden to market, and what the final product might look like. But now, thanks to a PowerPoint presentation posted online by Pierer Mobility AG, we get a look at the final product, or so it seems. Listed under the Product Portfolio for the Husqvarna brand in the leaked document, we see the Norden 901 highlighted in the ‘Explorer’ category sandwiched between their ‘Enduro’ and ‘Dual Purpose’ offerings for the 2020 model year. Featuring an 890cc iteration of KTM’s parallel-twin powerplant used in the 790 Adventure, the Norden 901 seems more focused on long distance travel than overall off-road performance. Additionally, we can expect the 2021 Norden 901 to carry a more substantial price-tag than its KTM 790 brethren, which are currently available for $12,700 MSRP. Why the price bump? Husqvarna was showcasing some interesting technological updates on the Norden they unveiled at EICMA, to include a Bluetooth integrated smartphone mount on the dash, as well as host of accessories such as upper crash bars, soft luggage, yellow LED auxiliary lights and more. And while the Norden 901 was set to debut at the 2020 EICMA show, which has been canceled, we do expect to see the final product within the next few months.   More interesting is a curiosity we found heavily blurred out model featured under KTM’s Product Portfolio for 2020. The bike is listed under the ‘Supermoto / Dual Purpose’ category, directly above the 690 SMC R. From what we can tell, the mystery motorcycle’s silhouette resembles the newly introduced 390 Adventure but has side extensions which reach further towards the headlight to reduce the “bug” like appearance some riders didn’t appreciate. This leaves us to speculate that perhaps KTM will be releasing a larger displacement iteration of the new light-weight ADV machine. A 490cc variant has been anticipated and would fill a vacant space in their lineup between the 390 and 790 models. Another possibility would be a 590-690 single-cylinder based adventure touring model. Either way, we’re always happy to see more  middle-weight motorcycle options. What do you think it will be?  Read more …

  • The Rekluse RadiusX for KTM 1190R Review
    by Dan DiMaio on September 15, 2020 at 9:22 pm

    Published in: Gear“Look Mom, No Hands!” The name Rekluse is well known and highly respected within the off-road communities worldwide as the leader in auto-clutch technology. Over the years their designs have been slowly ebbing their way into the ADV world. A few years back ADVMoto helped in the development of the Rekluse for the BMW F800GS with great success. Fast forward to now there are more offerings for the ADV segment as well as street and Harley markets, with new products coming off the line on a regular basis. The Rekluse system essentially turns your bike in to a semi-automatic, giving you the ability to come to a full stop without ever pulling in the clutch. The magic is the EXP disk that slides and expands as the RPM increases to either engage or disengage the clutch automatically. The technology became popular within the off-road racing world since it allowed riders the ability to concentrate on their lines instead of the distractions of clutch control. And since the early days of this technology it’s been refined and polished for just about anything on two wheels. Photo Credit: Rekluse For this revie we’re testing the RadiusX system in a ADVMoto KTM 1190R. This system includes the all-new TorqDrive friction plates as well as all-new metal disks, and of course the magic of the EXP auto-clutch disk and adjustable clutch slave to adjust the auto-clutch engagement. Installation was a breeze and took a little less than an hour start to finish, with an additional 30 minutes to nail the adjustments. The initial test ride requires a little brain retraining in that you always want to pull in the clutch when coming to a stop. Once the newly-learned habit sets into place it was awesome being able to pull up to a light and not having to think about the clutch. But the real magic happened once I got off-road! Having the ability to pick lines and ride technical single-track without worrying about stalling was game-changing! It’s sometimes difficult enough riding a 500 lb. bike off-road, but now there’s no fear of stalling in tricky situations. Over the years I’ve never really wanted a Rekluse set-up for my off-road bike. But, after living with it on the big ADV bike, I may have to revisit this incredible technology. This setup will make most any adventure rider better at off-road, especially those who haven’t been able to spend the necessary time to learn the techniques. If you’re looking to add a little magic to your ADV/dual-sport bike, look into installing a Rekluse on your machine. I’m now a believer in this incredible technology. Rekluse.com MSRP: $849 PROS: Super easy installation No pulling in clutch when coming to a stop You can still use clutch to feather in corners CONS: May be pricey for some That I didn’t install one sooner    Read more …

  • LEAKED – Black Dog Cycle Works KTM 390 Adventure Skid Plate
    by Alex Marsh on September 7, 2020 at 5:00 pm

    Published in: NewsWhen KTM released their long awaited 390 Adventure, the tin sheet of a skid plate attached to the frame seemed like the first upgrade the little adventure bike would need. And while KTM is preparing to release an assortment of Power Parts accessories for the 390, our friends from Black Dog Cycle Works (BDCW) have been busy prototyping one of their bullet-proof ULTIMATE Skid Plates for the new ADV machine. Tipping the scales at 6 lb., the 1/8-inch thick 5052 aluminum plate is no featherweight. But powertrain protection is probably the most important addition to an adventure motorcycle, so the added weight shouldn’t be an issue for most riders looking to do some serious all-terrain exploring on their new KTM. Like all their products, the prototype ULTIMATE Skid Plate is made in the U.S. and comes in a Silver-Vein color powder coat finish. In addition to the skid plate, Black Dog also unveiled a prototype Rear Rack for the KTM 390, which bolts to the frame, replacing the small pillion seat on the back of the bike. The rack is made of 3/16-inch aluminum and will be offered in a hard-anodized black finish with a BDCW logo etched into it. It, too, will be made in the U.S. While these are only prototypes at this time, we are very excited to see aftermarket companies taking the initiative to produce parts and accessories for the latest offering from KTM, a bike destined to change the ADV industry. • Skid Plate Prototype Specs: Frame mounted Absolutely burley protection Only 6 lb. Made from 1/8-inch 5052 aluminum Removes with 6 bolts for maintenance Protects exhaust resonator The production version will be modified slightly based on testing of the prototype Silver-Vein powder coat Made in the U.S. • Rear Rack Specs: Bolts to the frame Replaces the passenger seat Comes off with 4 bolts Made of 3/16-inch aluminum Production version will be improved from prototype. It will not have such an extreme curve at the rear of the handles. Grab handles are fully accessible Production version will be hard anodized black with the Black Dog logo tastefully etched into it.

  • All-New Trail 125 Joins Honda’s 2021 Lineup
    by Wenling Pan on September 4, 2020 at 3:51 pm

    Published in: NewsThe model honors the past while offering modern on- and off-road trekking performance Sixty years after Honda introduced customers to the joys of casual on- and off-road riding, the all-new 2021 Honda Trail 125 ABS (CT125) resurrects a revered brand by injecting a healthy dose of practical design and hassle-free technology to create a miniMOTO that—much like the Super Cub and Monkey—pays tribute to the past while adapting easily to modern lifestyles. Debuted in 2019 as a concept model at the 46th Tokyo Motor Show, the CT125 received rave reviews, along with requests for a production model. That wish is now granted with the introduction of the 2021 Honda Trail 125, which expands upon the scope of the popular Super Cub C125 to include casual riding in rural settings, including two-track roads and trails. This was accomplished by strengthening the C125 chassis, increasing suspension travel and improving fuel range. The engine is the same 125cc four-stroke, single-cylinder overhead-camshaft design operating two valves, but with a high-mounted air intake and upswept exhaust that enhance low-end and midrange power. As with the Super Cub, the Trail 125 has a four-speed semiautomatic transmission. The engine guard adds protection from obstacles like large rocks and tree stumps. Honda’s designers maintained the distinctive look that propelled the purchase of hundreds of thousands of CT-series machines over six decades. With the launch of the Trail 125, Honda taps into the success of similarly nostalgic miniMOTO models to introduce riders to the joys of trekking on roads and trails. “When American Honda was established in 1959 and began offering the Honda 50, Idaho dealer Herb Uhl started modifying it for off-road use, resulting in Honda producing the Trail 50,” said Lee Edmunds, Senior Manager of Powersports Marketing for American Honda. “That model became ubiquitous in American campgrounds and on motorhome bumpers in the ’60s and ’70s and led to a number of successors. For that reason, the CT brand has a special history with the U.S. market, and it’s great to see it return with the Trail 125 which, like the Super Cub and Monkey, harkens back to a golden era of American motorcycling but with modern technology and reliability.” The 2021 Honda Trail 125 is scheduled for release in November and will be available in Glowing Red. The MSRP is $3,899. Watch the annoucement on ADVMoto Live! #14,  with Jenny Morgan and Juan Browne share their excitement over this new model: {youtube}TqHIDiaTPcg{/youtube} About American Honda American Honda Motor Co., Inc., is the sole distributor of Honda motorcycles, scooters, ATVs and Side-by-Sides in the United States.

  • Fresh Fall Colors Come to Klim’s Off Road Lineup
    by Alex Marsh on August 25, 2020 at 8:50 pm

    Published in: NewsIn an exciting fall season move, KLIM has released a brand new lineup of colors for all three off-road lines, the Dakar, Mojave and XC Lite. The Idaho-based company typically releases all their new off-road gear in the spring, so this is an exciting surprise for those shopping for new gear in the fall. People who’ve paid attention to KLIM’s social channels may have noticed they teased some colors prior to the release, but at that point nobody knew the full extent of additions. The Dakar series gets a full new kit (matching pant, jersey, glove) plus one more new jersey, the Mojave series also gets a full kit (matching pant, jersey, glove) plus one more jersey, and the XC Lite series gets two new fully matched kits. The Dakar series gear is a blend of durability and airflow, featuring massive adjustable vents on the pant legs in addition to multiple stretch panels, leather overlays, and heavy duty 840D Cordura in key areas. The recently redesigned Dakar Jersey, with tough sleeves, vented sides, a zippered sleeve pocket and a lightweight body, is equally focused on durability while still maintaining good airflow for off-road riding. The Mojave series focuses big time on airflow while maintaining solid durability, with pants featuring the same burly materials as in the Dakar Pant, but with fully open mesh panels for full-time airflow in hot weather. The recently redesigned Mojave Jersey also features a more open mesh body material for more airflow, while upgrading to the same durable sleeve material found in the Dakar Jersey. Topping the charts for mobility is the XC Lite series. Engineered with the aggressive trail rider and racer in mind, the XC Lite series puts extra focus on comfort in extremely demanding conditions, where airflow, moisture-wicking materials and highly flexible fabrics can make or break the experience. Still, durability isn’t pushed aside with leather overlays and durable fabrics in high wear areas. Wherever you ride, and whatever you ride, KLIM has your entire season of trail riding, racing and dual-sport adventures covered. See the new kits at KLIM.com  Read more …

  • Kriega Announces New TRAIL9 and TRAIL18 Backpacks
    by Alex Marsh on August 17, 2020 at 5:00 pm

    Published in: NewsSerious adventure bike and trail riders have been attracted by Kriega’s reputation and world-renowned build quality for years; the introduction of the TRAIL range sees a pair of backpacks with specifications more closely tailored to their demands. The TRAIL9 is the most compact adventure backpack ever produced by the British specialists, and is favored by riders for whom weight, speed and agility is key and comfort is essential. The bigger TRAIL18 shares much of the same class-leading features, but has twice the load-carrying capacity. Both the TRAIL9 and TRAIL18 have two main compartments: one is fully-waterproof with a roll-top, the other has zip-access and is designed to take a choice of different removable hydration reservoirs. A distinctive, elastic, hexagonal Hypalon net adds additional storage. Kriega used their 20-plus years of experience and the feedback from elite-level, extreme enduro champions in the development of their TRAIL backpacks, and thanks to this they have no hesitation in offering a 10-year guarantee with the new packs. It wouldn’t be a Kriega backpack without the firm’s revolutionary Quadloc-Lite harness. This design is a vast improvement over traditional straps because the weight of the pack is taken by the rider’s torso, not their shoulders. Kriega’s original design minimizes fatigue, which is especially useful for ADV and trail riders facing long days and challenging trails. 100% waterproof, roll-top, storage body (11 liters or 5 liters, depending on model) constructed from extremely durable 420D Cordura and integrally mated to Kriega’s unique Quadloc-Lite harness system, adjustable for just about any body shape. Auxiliary zip-access compartment (7 liters or 4 liters, depending on model) to transport essentials and house one of Kriega’s hydration packs (sold separately). Additional, versatile carrying capacity offered by a Hypalon cargo net, backed with one of three colored panels offering optional injections of hi-viz lime or safety orange. It wouldn’t be Kriega if there wasn’t a trademark all-black option too. See the TRAIL18 in action with Pol Tarrés in THE SEEKER as he pushes the bounds of reality on a Yamaha T7. {youtube}eDxBGc9TD4c{/youtube} • FEATURES QUADLOC-Lite™ harness transfers weight from the shoulders to the chest and body, giving all-day riding comfort, even with heavy loads.

  • MIC Reports Dirt Bike and Dual-Sport Sales Soar Over 50%
    by Alex Marsh on August 14, 2020 at 5:00 pm

    Published in: NewsWe didn’t really think we would see a benefit to the pandemic, but it seems there has been at least a little silver lining within this year. With the world scrambling to find things to do it seems our favorite kinds of motorcycle sales are up. The folks at the Motorcycle Industry Council (MIC) have crunched the numbers and have the good news for us. IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 11, 2020 — Off-highway motorcycle sales rocketed 50.3 percent in the first half of the year compared with the same period last year, while dual-purpose motorcycle sales jumped 20.9 percent in the same time frame, according to the Motorcycle Industry Council Retail Sales Reporting System. “Riding dirt and trail bikes has always been one of the best ways to spend time with family and friends,” said Erik Pritchard, president and CEO of the Motorcycle Industry Council. “Now, with the pandemic, it has amplified what’s positive about getting out on motorcycles. You can get out of the house, have fun with your loved ones, and still maintain social distancing.” Off-highway motorcycles include dirt bikes, trail bikes, competition motorcycles, and other motorized two-wheelers that cannot be used on public roads. Dual-purpose motorcycles are street legal and are also designed to be used on off-road trails. On-highway motorcycles saw sales dip 9.6 percent, while scooter sales rose 4 percent. Combined with off-highway and dual, this puts total motorcycle sales in the first half of the year up 6.4 percent compared with 2019. The MIC recently launched a Commuter Distancing campaign to encourage people to consider motorized two- and three-wheelers as transportation alternatives. “There are many benefits to motorcycles and scooters,” Pritchard said. “In normal times, studies have shown that they help alleviate congestion. During this pandemic, being on a motorcycle means being able to avoid crowds and lessening the chance of spreading and picking up germs. And many riders say it adds fun to a normally mundane commute. Our Commuter Distancing social media posts are a reminder of these benefits.” The Commuter Distancing posts point people to FindYourRide.org, where they can quickly find information on how to get rider training and where to find a bike. “It’s just a first step, and many in the powersports industry are waiting to help riders-to-be explore their options,” Pritchard said. “Sales from the first half of the year indicate growing interest in powersports products and we’re excited to help them on their journey.” The MIC Retail Sales Reporting System gathers new motorcycle sales data from the 14 leading manufacturers and distributors in the U.S., providing a strong indicator of sales trends. The Motorcycle Industry Council exists to preserve, protect, and promote motorcycling through government relations, communications, media relations, statistics and research, aftermarket programs, data communications standards, and involvement in technical and regulatory issues. As a not-for-profit national industry association, the MIC seeks to support motorcyclists by representing manufacturers, distributors, dealers, and retailers of motorcycles, scooters, ATVs, ROVs, motorcycle/ATV/ROV parts, accessories, and related services, and members of allied trades such as insurance, finance and investment companies, media companies, and consultants. The MIC is headquartered in Irvine, Calif., with a government relations office in metropolitan Washington, D.C. First called the MIC in 1970, the organization has been in operation since 1914.

  • Yamaha XT500 H2O Water Powered Concept Art
    by CrazyCarl on August 14, 2020 at 2:40 am

    Published in: NewsJust when we thought Yamaha’s Tenere 700 was making waves,  digital art prototype images from artist and industrial designer Maxime Lefebvre tease a water powered Yamaha XT 500 H2O motorcycle.  Although it looks nothing at all like a traditional XT500 (or anything resembling a functional dual-sport for that matter),  the idea itself of a water powered engine and bike is fascinating. Increased amounts of electric motorcycle news in recent years has overshadowed discussions of other alternative powerplant systems.  Accompanying illustraions show the artistic evolution and intentional off-road spirit of this machine, athough almost none of that made it into the color 3D modeled version.     Several obvious functional problems with the artistic renditions as well as complete lack of details on how such a revolutionary engine would work, place this firmly in unicorn-dreamland territory for now. That said, we LOVE creative motorcycle artwork here at ADVMoto which you can see in our FarRider Comics series and the Suzuki DRZ400 Rally concept art projects. It also begs the question: Are other forms of power aside from electric practical for small vehicle transportation? Also, are adventure/daul-sport bikes becoming de rigueur for new models of bikes?   The engine described here is unlike anything we’ve seen before, and quite the opposite of Suzuki’s water producing hyrdogen powered fuel-cell scooter.  Artwork text describes,”The concept is equipped with a water engine. Basically this engine just needs water, but to be effective it needs a water pump. With almost no loss, this engine fit perfectly with the XT philsosophy. Go far, everywehere, and with simplicity.” Two of the hefty claims in the power plant graphic are “mute” and “inexhaustable.”  Even if this is a super high ressure water jet propulsion system, where would the power come from?  Also, what are the chances that it would be any more silent that an electric motor?  Maybe it would have a crazy turbine like hum?  Also interesting is Maxime’s Honda brand concept that appears to be 100% inspired by the little known motorcycle anime series Rideback by Tetsuro Kasahara. If you’re into Manga and motorcycles, Rideback is a must watch.     We don’t recommend anyone hold their breath for this but in a strange science fiction sort of way, it’s neat to dream! Although the relationship between Yamaha and Lefebvre appears to be official (we’ll check and update here), claims of the Dyson Vacuum visually inspired new XT500 becoming a reality is tanalizingly close. Rumors of this going to production by 2025 would also seem far fetched, but crazier things have happened.   Until then, we’re happy sticking with Yamaha’s Tenere 700 which is still new to us in North America and looks to have a nothing but promising future only using water to cool it’s traditional combustion engine.  Read more …

  • Tusk Pilot Pannier Saddlebags Review
    by Nakia Johnson on August 13, 2020 at 5:00 pm

    Published in: GearFor adventure motorcyclists, the stuff we carry is important, whether that be cook sets, clothes, tents or camp chairs we can’t be without. But what good is stuff if you have no way to carry it? Luckily, Rocky Mountain ATV/MC has you covered with their budget-friendly Tusk Pilot soft pannier bags. The panniers measure 16″L x 7″W x 13″–21″H (40.6cm x 17.8cm x 33cm–53.3cm) with a roll-top offering 8″ (20cm) of height adjustment. Although the panniers are not waterproof, two hi-viz Tusk Defender dry bags are included, making it a solid choice for a soft pannier set-up. Plus, if you already own the Tusk rack and hard boxes, it’s a great alternative for shorter trips or for routes where you’re likely to bang up the metal boxes. Initial installation can be tricky, and the appearance of the resultant mounting wasn’t exactly inspired. But, after 2,000 miles on my KLR650, including a Mid-Atlantic BDR trip where a rocky section snapped off a tool tube, the attachments points turned out to be sturdy. Capacity is 35 liters per side via a single large compartment. While big enough for a multi-day trip, a concern with the Pilot is the absence of bottle holsters, meaning any extra fluids which need to be carried will have to be stowed away inside the bags themselves or in some sort of attachment purchased separately. Attempting to mount third-party bottle holsters brings to light another issue: the lack of webbing loops. Not only would such loops enable you to attach a holster or small storage pouches, they would allow for easy routing of a cable lock to ensure a little peace of mind security-wise. Even with a few minor shortcomings, I found the Tusk Pilot soft pannier bags to be a worthwhile investment in that their durability hints at a long, useful life. MSRP: $333.98–$463.97 pannier/rack combo (application specific) | $119 soft luggage mount (to allow for use of quick release) RockyMountainATVMC.com • PROS: Affordable price point Goldilocks size (not too big, not too small) Quick-release option (albeit at additional cost) Heavy-duty dry bags included • CONS: Lack of bottle holsters Lack of webbing loops Initial install can be frustrating Read more …

  • Giant Loop Round the World Panniers and Mounts Review
    by Aaron Demo on August 6, 2020 at 6:37 pm

    Published in: GearWhen it comes to soft luggage, there are many options on the market, with a wide range of prices and features. Having returned from a weeklong trip with hard panniers and struggling with packing issues, I went looking for a set of soft luggage with more room than my current hard bags. I also wanted something with compartmented storage options that are easy to get on and off the bike. Enter the Giant Loop Round the World Panniers and GL Pannier Mounts. Attaching the soft bags to the GL Pannier Mounts was fairly straightforward following the clear instructions provided, but having an extra set of hands was a plus and definitely eased the process. These bags are heavy duty and the construction quality is on point. Once the bags were mounted to the GL Pannier Mounts, it only took a couple of minor adjustments to the mounting brackets and they locked up perfectly to the pannier racks already installed on my Africa Twin. There is a barrel lock on the latch to keep someone from walking off with the bags that I wish was a little heavier duty, but when leaving the bike outside overnight I would remove the bags anyway, due to the ease of the mounting system. To remove the bags, it’s a simple one-handed operation and all it takes is a pull of the lever on the top of the mount, and they lift right off with the handle built into the luggage. The total weight of both bags and mounts comes in at 15 pounds, about five pounds less than my current hard panniers, which don’t have a quick-release mount. These 90+ liter waterproof bags have amazing versatility. Outside of the main compartment, there is one external five-liter dry compartment and one external five-liter wet pocket on each bag. I went ahead and bought two inexpensive five-liter dry bags from my favorite online retailer that fit the wet pockets perfectly, allowing me to have more dry storage if needed; it just depends on what you’re packing. There is a removable waterproof liner for both main compartments that can be pulled out easily if you don’t want to remove the bags from your bike when you stop, but the GL Pannier Mounts make removing the actual panniers so simple, I don’t foresee ever having to remove the liners, except maybe to bring my clothes into the tent. During a recent week-long trip to Vermont, I had both my hard panniers filled, with large dry bags strapped to the top of them. To my surprise, I was able to pack all the gear from that trip into the Round the World Panniers and had a little room to spare! The ballistic nylon compression wings on the outside of the bags do more than just stabilize your gear. They also make a great place to strap down items that don’t need to stay dry, like sandals, tent poles, camp chair, or any other item you want to have readily available. Overall, this is the best quality and most versatile soft luggage I have used to date, and I expect this will be my go-to luggage for years to come. The GL Pannier Mounts will work with other soft luggage systems, as well as coming pre-drilled for RotopaX mounts. Giant Loop does offer a discount if you order the complete pannier and mount package. GiantLoopMoto.com MSRP: RTW Panniers—$675 | Pannier Mounts—$249–$299 PROS: Ease of installation and removability Exceptional versatility with lots of packing options GL Pannier Mounts work with most manufacturers’ luggage racks CONS: Barrel lock could be improved Read more …

  • Hawaii Adventures – The Novelty of Riding Aloha
    by Kelly “Throttle Girl” Quinn; photos by Pablo Espinosa & Kelly Quinn on August 4, 2020 at 5:00 pm

    Published in: RidesHawaii, the Aloha State. Known for its beaches, surf and popular destination resort ambiance; I set out with ADVMoto Staff Contributor, Pablo Espinosa to defy the typical and experience Maui on two wheels. Once we landed, we headed straight to Maui Dual Sport, the only dual sport motorcycle & guide outfitter on the island. We found ourselves welcomed with bikes prepped and ready to go. I would be riding a KTM 390 Duke with wheels skinned in knobby Continental TKC 80’s. Admittingly, my first thought had my ego chuckling, the tires were the only thing ADV about it. That said, I was in Hawaii and up for anything this trip; in this moment I realized this adventure was likely to have many interesting chapters. It took me about 45 minutes into riding to realize Maui doesn’t necessarily call for my usual H-D Road Glide or BMW R1250GS. Such bikes could be perceived as overkill for what the island and its infrastructure supports. Maui is just 48 miles long, 26 miles wide and totals 728 sq. miles. It hosts several different and diverse microclimates which I find fascinating given its size. From the ocean shores that gradually climb their way towards fruitful plantations, we found ourselves navigating through mazes of thick bamboo forests and passing waterfalls cascading down mountainsides of lush flora. Many descend directly toward the road but flow under one of the countless bridges we crossed. We rode through arid desert and uncanny volcanic landscapes that made it feel like we were in the middle of a sci-fi movie scene. Rising above the tree-line and peaking at 10,023 feet of elevation, Haleakala is the world’s largest dormant volcano and centerpiece of the island. It provides several microclimates in and of itself. Every 25 miles it felt as if we were somewhere else in the world; this island is a whole lot of riding bang for its mileage. Maui is not thought of as one of the most accessible off-road riding meccas and for good reason. Between protected lands, state and private owned land as well as land regarded as largely sacred by native Hawaiians; if you don’t know someone who has access, it’s hard pressed to find. When you do find off-road areas, the terrain is volcanic and can at best be classified as a no fall zone to avoid feeling like you got in a fight with a cheese grater. If you get through those challenges, the mineral rich soil that makes up the majority of the island is known as Red Ice, getting its nickname from its literal translation. Pablo and I knew this going into the adventure and accepted the challenge knowing that any excuse to ride Hawaii was worth whatever experience we may find. Two stretches of road stand out in my mind as must shares from our Maui adventure. On the north side of the island is the Kahekili Highway or Highway 340. Snaking between Waihe’e-Waiehu and Kapalua, the one-lane winding road traverses the cliffs high above the ocean.’ Tourists who rent cars are told not to travel “The Deadliest Road in Maui,” which we all know is code for motorcycle dream road. Between the laid-back pockets of local communities of farmers, fishermen and artisans; vast beauty and unrivalled exhilaration had my smile spilling out of my full face helmet. On the southeast side lies the Pi’Illani Highway, stretching between Highway 37 and Highway 360. Night and day from the topography of Highway 340, it isn’t the most common route either.  This road has both the longest, straightest stretch of tarmac on the island from Keokea to Kaupo and the longest stretch of non-paved primary road between Kaupo and Oheo Gulch (Seven Sacred Pools). You’ll find expansive ocean views, working cattle ranches and volcanic scars left the last time Haleakala ignited the fire that once lived in her belly. The Huialoha Church and the Charles A. Lindbergh grave site are found in this region too, it’s worth making the time to explore. Andrew from Maui Dual Sport rode with us one of our days. A guided tour was fascinating; we learned from his knowledge of Maui’s geology, history and gained perspective from his local point of view. Deviating too far off a ‘main route’ while exploring the island on your own is not recommended, but with Andrew as our guide we knew where to go and we were able to experience an area we wouldn’t have seen otherwise. This is a sacred land rooted in deep tradition and culture; it should be respected always. After a week of riding, I found the 390 Duke to be a perfect set up for the island. Clearly Maui Dual Sport knows what their market dictates. I was impressed how the Duke made smoothly paved tarmac and the 620 curves that lead to Hana pure riding nirvana. Where pavement ended the TKC 80’s added the perfect amount of additional confidence in handling. It was extremely responsive, had more than enough power for zipping around in traffic and was a dream when threading the needle across one lane bridges or down glorified bike paths disguised as roads. However, taller riders would have a hard time enjoying it as I did. It even took me a few miles to get used to how small the Duke was. I’d joke with Pablo that I felt like the figurehead on the bow of an old schooner; nothing in front of me, just my head cutting through the wind. Once I adjusted to the sporty feel, I felt like I went back in time, carving butter like turns in a wide-open Giant Slalom course. Nimble and sassy, the Duke proved the lesson of never judging a book by its cover and that it’s always good to get out of your comfort zone. If you choose to experience Maui on two wheels, Maui Dual Sport has a plethora of different bikes to choose from. You’ll be outfitted to meet your desires while enhancing your island riding experience. They aim to please with a welcomed twist of Aloha Spirit. When planning your trip to the island, consider how much saddle time vs. tourist time you want to spend. Once you’ve figured that out, I suggest tacking on a few extra days. Trust me, if you end up with extra time, you won’t be hard pressed to fill or ride it. By the end of the trip both Pablo and I agreed that given a few more days and we would have been able to check off the few boxes we had missed.   Nature’s pure essence is exceptionally alive in Hawaii, depending on the time of year, you may be fortunate enough to catch whales breeching and sea turtles nesting. Another way to take in nature is by zip lining. Flying across the canopy of the Puukukui Nature Reserve, Kapalua Ziplines is the largest course on the island. Vistas overlook the Marine Conservations of both Mokule’ia and Honolua Bay, while looking down to the tropical floor below reveals Wild Boar doing Wild Boar things. With seven different ziplines covering 9,750 feet of go big or go home, I highly recommend the experience.   One must not overlook the reality of eating your way around the island. It seems rather sacrilegious to not gorge yourself on fresh fruit, guava smoothies, Hawaiian BBQ, banana bread, fish tacos and popping a fresh coconut to hydrate. If you ride Highway 340, stop by Braddah Chic’s roadside stand located on ‘the big bend’ in Kahakuloa and order the fresh-off-the-boat Ahi Poke Bowl. It’s so good we had to go back a few times and I can’t lie, having to ride an amazing stretch of road again to get there was a win/win! It goes without saying that both Haleakala National Park and the three State Parks should be on top of the hit list; Iao Valley, Papalaua Beach & Park, and Waianapanapa with its black lava sand beach. My favorite was Iao Valley; with its tropical hiking trail along a river rushing its way through Koa and Banyan trees, steep mountains, and over waterfalls falling hundreds of feet to the valley floor. There’s literally no end to the amount of diverse experiences you can have while riding the island, use that GPS and go! Mother Nature is another reason to tack on a few extra days to your planned trip; she had her way with us on this visit, becoming a prominent chapter of our adventure. Don’t let the sunshine filled photos fool you; we only had two full severe clear days. I’m usually prepared with my trusty go-to kits, but in this case I wanted to travel as light as possible. I pulled a rookie move of assuming “It’s Hawaii, how bad could it be?” BIG mistake, I wished I packed my KLIM Altitude Jacket and puffy on more than one occasion. Instead I thought I could get away with my KLIM Avalon mesh riding jacket and layering up if I needed to. Certain times of the year I could have gotten away with it, but I found out that not all showers are refreshing in the islands. Next time I go in late February, I’m packing like I’m going to Patagonia. We just so happened to catch a once-in-a-decade weather pattern that even surprised the locals. Most our days were filled with chasing holes amongst the storm clouds and dodging torrential flash flood producing down pours. High winds, mass power outages and temperatures plummeting below 50°f on the beach, causing an average 20-degree difference up high before wind chill. Freezing rain and snow ended up closing the road leading through the National Park to the top of Haleakala. Our window of opportunity closed…we got skunked. Make no mistake though, the mountain’s presence was felt even through the cloud covered blanket she wore while riding around her. Take away? Don’t ever say, “How bad can it be?” Honestly, I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to experience Hawaii by renting a car again. For me, the experience of being able to carve twisties and zip around cars bottlenecked in long lines waiting for right-a-ways, the smells of pungent tropical foliage, and the feisty, unforgiving weather was all part of the adventure. What started as a novelty trip, ended up being a ‘Mahalo Maui’ I’ll be back. Until I can stand on the summit of Haleakala in all her glory and ride the road leading to her, I now have unfinished business. I look forward to the day I can say ‘Aloha Maui’ once again with even more time to explore, surf, ride and smell the Plumeria, Kupala, Naupaka and Pikake flowers along the way. • Special thanks to:             Maui Dual Sport – MauiDualSport.com             Kapalua Ziplines – KapaluaZiplines.com             KLIM – Klim.com Kelly ’Throttle Girl’ Quinn is a born and raised Alaskan who calls the Lake Tahoe area her home basecamp.
