Even with no regard for the bike, I couldn't do that in my best days, which, btw, are long since gone

Maybe if I got an outfit, I could do it?

The jacket and pants look great in the catalogue. Claim to be waterproof and so forth.

They could really increase their market acceptance by eliminating the "sponsor" logos and doing an "adult" color option. I guess, that's why Parts Unlimited has the Moose line.

They have a standard Patrol line without all that stuff.

The ads mention the Dakar dream and so forth. Us old guys could do without the sponsor stuff but I think they are trying to get the younger crowd interested in adventure riding.
They do well with the gixxer crowd, stunters and such. They certainly are making a stab at adventure riders.

I hadn't seen that before. Looks like it's fairly new, to the lineup. I like the "Camelbak" feature.

It's actually been out about 3 years now.

I thought the 'patrol' line was from FLY RACING. Which BTW is pretty good cheap gear. MSR has a couple of pieces that are decent as well.

Out here it's Klim country. Any given ride it's like a sea of klim klones.
I have to admit though, they do a pretty good job with their features and construction. Only their high-end stuff is out of sight price-wise. The rest is on the high end of reasonable.

I did not realize Icon was actually going to put all the sticker shit on their gear. I'd be more willing to try it out without all that hoopla.

Scott is another one to check out. Even alpinestar has something once in awhile.

Not sure if you can get Dririder there, but they have a Rallycross Pro 2 I think it's called... with a hydration bladder pocket built in too.

Geez, I feel like I'm way out of the loop, as I left the industry ~7yrs ago.

I've been throwing my Camelbak bladder in a tankbag, as I didn't care for riding with a backpack. However, these jackets look like a nice compromise.

IMO using the bladder built into the jacket sucks. They pull the jacket back and it's anoying as all hell. just my 2c

Eh? Position of the Handlebar Risers

After almost two weeks of ownership now I've been bothered by two things about this bike: The aerodynamics around the screen and the ergonomics while standing.

The wind blast off the stock screen hits me in the arms, shoulders, and top of the helmet. Annoying. And Loud. Very loud. When I duck behind the screen or stand up to get out of the blast things quiet down considerably. Which brings up point number two...

While standing I've noticed that the footpegs seem like they're too far forward. The reach down to the bars is awkward, almost like reaching in your back pockets for the handlebars. (Oddly I remember the "pegs forward" comment from one of the magazine reviews as well.)

After installing my center stand the other night I got to thinking about the pegs forward issue, and was thinking that maybe it wasn't the pegs forward but the bars rearward that bothered me. I loosened the stock risers (damn, they're tall!) and rotated them around 180 degrees to the forward position.

Revelation! The tank is still damn wide between the knees, but the bar to peg relationship is much better now while standing.

How does this relate back to the windscreen? Well, I was thinking about cutting it short or removing it altogether. I imagine this will go with the bars forward mod like peanut butter and chocolate, each making more sense when the other is nearby. Think I'll have to go check out that short PowerBronze screen I saw awhile back so I can get my noggin out into the breeze and quiet things down. Either that or the MadStad (which is too ugly, so I'll probably do the former).

I usually hear about people moving the bars rearward or installing other risers. Have other people rotated the bars to the forward position and liked it? Is this actually the factory position and I just got an odd setup?

I rode the Triumph tour screen and it was good. You may try to find a dealer that'll let you demo one. Also, there are adjustable windscreen mounts available. Putting one on my 1050 made a world of difference. However, I've always worn earplugs, too.

Going from my 1050 to the 800 definitely felt like the 800's pegs are forward. Not bad; just different. I didn't try to stand up, as I had my GF with me.

After taking my trip and standing on the pegs on occasion I want wider pegs. Any options out there you folks have tried?
