NEW FULLY SYNTHETIC ENGINE OIL FOR SCOOTERS AND MAXI-SCOOTERS
(Press release edited by WebBikeWorld) - Motorex offers a high-tech lubricant to comply with all manufacturer specifications: the new, fully synthetic four stroke oil "Scooter Forza 4t" in SAE 0w/30.
Scooter giant Piaggio places especially high requirements on the oils for the i-get engines of its Liberty and Medley models.
Now, Motorex offers a high-tech lubricant to comply with all manufacturer specifications: the new, fully synthetic four stroke oil "Scooter Forza 4t" in SAE 0w/30.
With their great performance and large wheels, scooters like the Piaggio Liberty and the Piaggio Medley easily deliver the same levels of riding fun as many motorcycles.
In addition,these scooters are often used as practical transport for urban commuting, quickly and comfortably getting their owners where they need to be and saving them any trouble finding parking spots.
However, such short range use with a lot of stop-and-go traffic is hard on any powerplant, especially engines with start-stop systems that have a hard time reaching their ideal operating temperature as it is.
MOTOREX counters the increased wear caused by frequent cold starts with a special four stroke engine oil, the fully synthetic SCOOTER FORZA 4T, previously offered in the viscosity SAE 5W/40.
Now also available in SAE 0W/30, thanks to a new formulation, the lubricant complies with the stringent Piaggio oil specifications for the liquid-cooled i-Get engines with multi-valve cylinder heads, for which the manufacturer stipulates the performance levels ACEA A5/B5, VW 503 00, VW 506 00 and VW 506 01.
Already at the lowest temperatures, MOTOREX SCOOTER FORZA 4T SAE 0W/30 forms a perfect lubricating film, minimising wear in the warm-up phase.
This means the MOTOREX range comprises a high-tech oil to allow low wear operation of highly stressed four stroke scooter engines, increasing their durability. The new lubricant is available at specialist dealers in the award-winning 1-liter bottle with integral spout. MOTOREX - Oil of SwitzerlandMotorex USA... See MoreSee Less
(Press release edited by WebBikeWorld) - Second Annual woman-led ADVWoman Rally dates Announced for July 20-23, 2017, at Flying Heels Rodeo Arena in Granby, Colorado
Dates are announced for the second annual adventure rally organized for women and families.
To be held July 20-23, 2017, in Granby, Colorado, the event will include a variety of self-guided rides, Geocache scavenger hunt, classroom training sessions as well as on-range adventure and dirt bike rider training.
All instructors are women! Men are welcome too-- this is a female and family friendly rally.
“We are building on last year’s success with several key changes,” said Pat Jacques, Rally Director. “BMW Off Road instructor Caroline Stevenson has joined the teaching staff, plus the rally is expanded to four days, Thursday through Sunday.
We have obtained indoor convention space, and have hotel accommodations available. We will teach on-range rider training ‘Adventure Essentials’ and ‘Dirt Bike Essentials’, and we’ve added the advanced level ‘BDR Essentials’ class.
This will support riders in successfully completing the Colorado Backcountry Discovery Route teaching steep ascents and descents, hair pin turns, water crossings, and rocky terrain skills.”
Last year’s Rally was a great success with several participants traveling over 1800 miles to attend.
“I knew the ladies would have a blast, but I was most surprised by how much the gentlemen enjoyed themselves,” said Jacques.
“They were thrilled to see their spouses and partners quickly gain confidence and skill, which translates to more opportunities to enjoy riding together and also strengthens the industry.”
Classroom Sessions are open to all attendees and will run Thursday & Friday 3:30PM-4:30PM and 4:45-5:45PM, with several classes running simultaneously in different locations.
Topics include trailside maintenance, trailside first aid, intro to GPS navigation, fitness and training for off-road riding, truck & trailer motorcycle loading and unloading, flat tire repair, how to pick up a bike, moto-camping and travel photography.
“Women teaching women is natural and transformative. We’re excited to have Canadian GS Trophy Candidate and BMW Off-Road Certified Instructor Caroline Stevenson joining our all-woman staff this year.
Caroline’s quiet, confident manner and considerable skill is sure to resonate with many women,” said Jacques.
Immediately following the Rally there will be a “First Ever” All-ladies Colorado Backcountry Discovery (COBDR) Tour led by Jacques and fellow adventure rider Alisa Clickenger.
All classes are taught Thursday and Friday so participants can enjoy a full day of adventure riding on Saturday.
About Pat Jacques, Rally Director: Pat Jacques is a groundbreaking woman who raced men’s motocross professionally. Retired from racing now, she still enjoys spirited single track riding and adventure touring.
Jacques’ passion is empowering women and getting families out riding motorcycles together.
She is a Keynote speaker appearing at the Steel Horse Sisterhood Summit, Women Creating Our Futures, and a personal coach. ... See MoreSee Less
Evan Kay1) With that large chest piece on the R35, did you notice that it made you warmer/hotter/sweating across your chest?
2) Is the effect of the strap system really that different from using a daypack with a properly adjusted waist belt and sternum strap?
Darren Pritchardon my second r35 in 15 years
simply a top piece of kit.
for starters, they take a huge amount of abuse for many years,
the fastening system helps spread the weight of a heavy load,
the bag doesn't wobble at speed ,
comes with a handy laptop bag,
they are good at keeping the rain out,
have so many pockets and places to stash things such as a water bottle.
the chest zipper has two pockets- perfect for your passport and money for tolls/ parking.

Evan KayHi, I realize you have a long-term supply of the Grippers, but you may find that the Moldex Goin' Green (there used to be a NASCAR marketing tie-in) will work for you (and many others). I've been using these for about 10 years. They have a NRR 33 rating (why choose anything else?), and have very similar measurements to the Grippers (28mm long, 14.5mm tapering to about 11mm). The ends are slightly flared making them easy to grab for removal. I find them very comfortable for all day use (and all night--I sleep with them!). Moldex makes several models exactly the same as these but with different colors (including camo for all you hunters).
Aside from size, the big difference between the Hearos and the Macks is Urethane Foam (UF) vs. poly-vinyl chloride (PVC) material. The UF is softer and more form-fitting to the ear canal. The PVC (the Macks seem to be the same as the ubiquitous yellow E-A-R Classic plugs that everybody wore at the racetrack in the '80s and '90s) are firmer and tend to become uncomfortable over time.
As for washing these? Hmm. I think I tried that once and it was a fail. I find that by keeping my ears clean, I get as much as a month's wear out of a pair. But the real limiting factor isn't cleanliness, but that the foam breaks down over time from the repeated "rolling down" (i.e. squishing) of the plugs before inserting them and they reach a point where they start to lose their maximum effectiveness (you can tell because they feel mushy at that point and take longer to expand inside your ears).
