 Just how good is Race Tech Suspension on Dual Sport? Read Dirt Bike Magazine KLR650 Race Tech Suspension Review

 

No matter if your Adventure Riding is across the Urban Jungle or across the Globe Race Tech Suspension will make your ride better! Have you added Accessories such as Tour Pack or Fuel Cell? Carrying Camping Gear? Passenger? If so you really need Suspension Upgrades! 

Who could have imagined the 100-400cc 'Street Trail' bikes we grew up with riding to school or work during the week and cow trailing on the weekends would become the 'Adventure Bikes' we enjoy today that start at 650 and go to over 1200cc! When BMW introduced the R80 G/S in the 80's (yea, we have that one covered too!) it would start a trend that has become one of the most popular styles of Motorcycles. 

 Call us with inquiries for your bike or view the products available in the Product Search.

Today's high-horsepower superbikes, large-displacement cruisers and super-heavy-weight touring bikes and tall heavy adventure bikes makes your riding skills are more important than ever for safe, fun motorcycling. Unfortunately for experienced riders, there is a large gap between the Motorcycle Safety Foundation's Experienced Rider Course (ERC) and the many racetrack schools around the country. Many riders are interested in improving their skills but are unwilling to take on the additional risks associated with a high-speed environment. If you fit into the "I'm interested, but" group, you're not alone. In fact, if you add up all the attendees of all the race schools together, they only represent a tiny percentage of street riders. This is not to say they are not good schools. To the contrary, they have much to offer. But they are not for everyone. Fortunately, Lee Parks' Total Control Advanced Riding Clinic (Total Control ARC) has a solution for those experienced riders "caught in the middle," as well as those track-day junkies and racers who want to be able to further enhance their skills in a controlled environment with expert instruction. ►Read More!
