Updated Product Section/New Spots Feature

If you haven’t already checked out the new Spots feature, then you are missing out on a pretty cool feature. We have developed a Google-powered mapping system to post all the moto-related spots out there that we all should know about; everything from tracks to trails to shops. The best part is that it is all user-generated. If there is a really fun spot out in the desert that you think people should know about, add it to the map. Also, if there is already a spot added that you frequent, share some of your favorite photos or videos. CLICK HERE to check out the SPOTS

In addition to the Spots feature, we have improved our PRODUCTS section thanks to help from our good friends at Now, you if you like a product, you may click directly to a purchase page. If there is a CLICK HERE TO BUY button, then you can be redirected straight to the porduct page on the online store. We are doing our best to add lots of products, so check back frequently for additions to our favorite products.

It’s that time again. Movember, or November with a moustache, is an awareness month for men’s health issue and raises money for charitable organizations, mostly focused on prostate cancer. The Movember Foundation is an Australian based, not for profit, charitable organization that implements the Movember event each year across the globe.

“Since its inception as a formal charity in 2004, Movember has raised over $29 million (USD) globally and is continuously working to increase awareness of prostate cancer within the community and change the attitude men have about their health.

Movember’s beneficiary partner in the United States is the Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF), the world’s largest philanthropic source of support for prostate cancer. Founded in 1993, the PCF has raised more than $350 million and provided funding for more than 1,400 research projects at nearly 150 institutions worldwide. All funds raised by Movember in the US stay in the US and go directly to the PCF.

The PCF has a simple, yet urgent goal: to find better treatments and a cure for prostate cancer.” (
