14 Great Africa Twin Upgrades from Twisted Throttle

The long maintenance intervals, electronic aids, innovative materials and go-anywhere attitudes that make our modern adventure bikes such a joy to own are still lacking features on the showroom floor. Should every modern ADV bike come fully loaded with a skid plate, crash bars, lever guards and luggage? I think most would argue "no!" — part of the fun is getting…

Lems Boulder Boots: Minimalist Camping Footwear

You might be asking yourself, “What does this minimalist boot have to do with adventure motorcycling?” The fact is, ADVMoto will review anything we think you would enjoy. I first placed an order for the Lems Boulder Boots not knowing I’d be writing a review for them, but I’ve grown to love them so much that I felt inclined to…

Shoei NEOTEC-II with SENA SRL Comms System Review

Shoei just released the North American version of the NEOTEC-II long-distance modular touring helmet. Although available in the EU last year, Shoei held up production in the U.S. for additional refinements, most notably is the newly designed “micro-ratchet chinstrap” mechanism and an improved visor system. I’ve been a fan of modulars for over a decade. Although they tend to be…

MOESOF Gen 2 Endurance Seat Review

After a few days on the Trans-America Trail, the limiting factor for how long I could ride each day wasn’t the range of my gas tank, or how much daylight remained, but how much my butt hurt. My Yamaha WR250R was equipped with an aftermarket seat, which was worlds better than the rock-hard stocker, but the slim profile of a…

Gear Review: Moto-Skiveez Traveler Shirt

Practicality. This is the word I keep in mind when selecting what gear comes with me on a trip and what gear stays at home. I’ve always packed a separate dry bag for all my clothes when traversing on two wheels, but Moto-Skiveez newest piece of technical riding apparel changes that. The Traveler Shirt is quite literally the only shirt…

Zox Z-DS10 Dual-Sport Helmet Review

Today’s ever-growing market of feature-rich helmets theoretically makes it easier to find helmets with features you like, but with so many options it can be difficult to choose the best one. Even in the field of dual-sport helmets there are those that tend more toward street or dirt in their intended use. The new Zox Z-DS10 helmet hits the mark…

Black Dog Cycle Works KTM 690/Husqvarna 701 Enduro Skid Plate

Asked to evaluate the Black Dog Cycle Works ULTIMATE Skid Plate, I wondered, “What’s to review?” A skid plate has no moving parts and should perform an apparently simple function. But, as it turns out, not all skid plates are created equal. Black Dog chose 3/16-inch ASTM 5052 aluminum alloy plate for their ULTIMATE Skid Plate structure. The alloy’s properties…

Mosko Moto Nomad Tank Bag Review

My first impression of the Nomad is that it’s standard Mosko Moto: high quality materials, workmanship, and attention to detail. As you begin to explore all 24-plus inner compartments and storage points, you’ll understand just how much forethought and engineering the Mosko crew put into the Nomad. On the outside, the Nomad offers a MOLLE top for attaching the included…

SIDI X-3 Lei Women's Boots

Searching for a protective and functional off-road boot is tough when you are a woman. There are few options out there that are tailored specifically for a female foot. Often, we are left wearing overly bulky men’s boots, which do the job, but only while wearing the thickest pair of socks available. SIDI stepped up this year, offering the Women’s X-3…
