Motocross really is hero’s work. If you can do laps on a dirt bike at a decent pace, you’re a bad dude. Maybe not bad compared to Ryan Dungey, but how many people in your neighborhood can even catch some air on a bike? Yup, you looked damned impressive compared to the average person, until your moto is over and it’s time to park your steed. Real men just lift their…bikes…onto…a…stand…wait hold on a second please, let’s try that again.
Riding a dirt bike is tiring and after a long moto sometimes it’s tough to get that perfect hip/leg/hand leverage to sling a 250 pound motorcycle (covered in dirt, with some gas in it) onto a stand. Whatever credibility you just got from riding will be over if you get caught flailing.
System’s Power Lift saves you back and your pride. It’s a battery-powered device that you slide under your bike and use to lift. Much easier than throwing bike onto a stand, plus it gets both wheels off the ground with ease, making maintenance much easier. Don’t let the batter-powered part fool you. This thing is light and maintenance free, with 100 lifts per charge. That’s a lot of riding, and a lot of pride-saving. Cost is $359.95. Go to powerliftsystem.com.
Hey, remember what I said about your hands being tired after a long moto? Check out Renthal’s Ultra-Tacky Grip. The compound was developed exclusively for Renthal and constantly produces and renews a sticky surface coating, which, when combined with the Renthal soft compound, offers an incredibly grippy yet comfortable surface. Softer grips used to just tear up instantly. Now you’ve got something even tackier that will also last. Available now in half waffle dual compound and tapered half waffle dual compound, $19.95 at renthal.com or for all Renthal Grips go to Motorcycle-Superstore.com
