RiDE magazine already does a TOP 5 on most things from bikes/gloves/leathers/rucksacks etc how about members review there own gear/equipment and submits it in its own section that way your getting real world reviews from people using the stuff on daily basis
oh yes i would be upfor this i would conduct real world test and do youtube reports on the good bad and ugly no brand loyatly allowed or to be paid. love to do my own crash helmet tests sod the sharps test just watch me lol:w00t:
110% upfor this send me the items and i will test em beyond repair
yep, yep, yep if you’ll be in the video testing the kit yourself and yep again. btw how about putting a hot red head or brunette in your avatar for once in fact f*ck it that’s what i’m goint to do now, i’ll put up some ginger girl up
something like that dude…;)…jet wash…or even a full on car wash…the skys the limit…:w00t:.Now lets not get carried away you phuckers!!!:w00t:…remember the staff here all have to beg like hell to gain any type of product so we can reveiw it…because of the current climate, people are very very reluctant on giving away free chit to us so here at LB, we are trying our damdist to try and get on par with all the heavy weights …(on a personal note, this means having too give up time with my daughter so i can stick my ore in to places and tickle their balls for just a free bug wipe solution…just to reveiw it for you lot!!!).Im just trying to asertain what you would like reviewd …what would you like to see…and what format you would like to see it in?also…we’re talking about a bike of the month video section were a members bike gets featured with a nice peice of footage…nice review…!! and the great part of that is …it dosent have to be the latest sports bike…could be a GT 750 for all we care…the more random the better…!!!:w00t:…just thought it would be a nice addition too the site…what ya think?..is it something you would actually look at regularley?smiled.
I’d like some decent testing for Rain / Waterproof gear - gloves, over trousers, gortex etc - which is the most efficient product and lasts all day without leaking - and anything regarding decent products that prevent visors misting up such as Fog City / rain resistant spray etc
I’d also like some testing done on crash helmets - after I got the Boxer Roof I heard it was not considered as safe as some other brands - so would like a comparison.
Seriously though this would be good. Even simple things like chain lube, you always see them advertised as non fling yet it still manages to end up all over your rear wheel.
Should have some long term tests too. Any forum member who have just recently brought some new kit could comment on their first thoughts then update after x amount of time using it… Such as my tech 10’s which where nice and shiny untill i went on a ride with the Jets :w00t:
Not everyone can afford top brand names so it would be good to get reveiws on less known names with a lower price tag.
Im actualy doing a reveiw for a company on a mouth guard. Suposed to make you more relaxed when riding. Im actualy starting that tomorrow with my initial veiw looking at it and moulding it to my mouth. Going to be doing a trackday using it then give the guy my final report. Im only actualy doing it because he tried promoting it on the KTM forum and there was alot of critisism on it including from myself and i sugested he got some unbiased reveiws on it so he sent me one to test out.
Oh and i like the idea of having a members bike featured each month. I think thats a top idea, im going to play in the sand near the end of the year so… :hehe:
ere what about tests on kit and bikes that are over 5 yrs old not everyone can afford brand new bikes etc
would love to see a sharps test or the like on helmets that are 5 yrs old or over and see if they realy mean what they about" sorry sir yr helmet is weakened coz its old now" . or wash a helmet for a year with washing up liquid or the like and then test it and see who is lieing or not etc
