Re: FS: size 12.5 & 13 boots and Rev-It XL gloves

Updated OP w/ the name of the low-cut boots.
Here are pics of the gloves. The Fly Racing gloves are a little worn in the tips. They are 2X sized but fit more like a XL. $10/pr. The Rev-It H2O gloves are XL. (I have 2 pair of these but only took pics of one.) $20/pr

Re: Fantic History

unsure how to feel about this, but some pretty impressive riding to say the least In twisty flat stuff the SR will keep up. Its just a big mountain bike. On it, I weigh less than some (fat) downhill guys do on their big rigs. FWIW, a top of the line DH bike is north of 35#. Some are QUITE a bit mor...

Re: Fantic History

The Segway/Ninebot X160 for $3k has about half the battery, half the motor, small wheels, and a single crown mtb fork. The X260 is more like the present Sur-Ron LBX (with bluetooth comms added) and has a list price of $5k. Will have to see how much below MSRP they sell but IMO the Sur-Ron version lo...

Re: More options

I've looked into the Smart Carb a bit now that I'm playing with a Lectron. They both work on the flat tapered rod metering approach to do most of the heavy lifting. They differ in how the top end enrichment is done. The Lectron uses a 'Power Jet' that uses engine vacuum (derived from air flow across...

Re: More options

All good points. Reality is I sold my e-start only FI 4-stroke that performed great after a close call out west where me and bike about went scuba diving. Realty sunk in fast what I would need to do to flush and bring back to life when 30 miles from any 2 track road. It was replaced with a carb 2 s...

Re: More options

I can tell you from first hand watching a Vertigo be kicked over and over to start that a FI smoker has a long way to go to be anything reliable. So a FI KTM and a carb KTM running the same mix ratio will make that much diff? EFI on a kicker only bike is its own problem. Within the duration of one ...

Re: More options

KTM only makes injected smokers now? Yep. All ktm enduro bike are injected as of 2020 - both 2T and 4T. The 2T motox bikes are 'closed course' and can continue to be carb'ed (for now). Euro4 emissions pretty much mandates it. Will be REALLY interesting to see if anyone can continue to build 2T and ...

FS: size 12.5 & 13 boots and Rev-It XL gloves

Picked up a bike on Craigslist and the sellers conveyed some gear. I'm doling most of it out to the new guys at the office (3 took and passed the MSF course this weekend!) I have size 12.5 regular boots and size 13 lower cut boots as seen in the pic. No one we know has feet that big. Everything was ...

Im happy to see HD making something other than cruiser style bikes. I hope it works for them
Agreed. I also like they are trying electric mountain bike things. Not sure if any of it will be successful but I wish them the best.
