Have any of you guys ordered gear online from the US? Gotta make a border run soon so I'm looking for a DOT dirtbike/dualsport helmet. Or with the dollar the way it is, any suggestions for Canadian suppliers? Shops in Kelowna have stupidly jacked up prices.

I've purchased gear from canadasmotorcycle.com . Great selection and prices. Cheaper than Revzilla with the exchange rate. Hey look, their ad is right on this page.

With the dollar right now you're not going to save much in the states in my opinion. Canadamotorcycle or motorstarz is going to be very close to Revzilla prices once you factor in exchange.

I agree. And honestly - in my experience there are a number of shops that will BEAT US prices right here in Vancouver. You just have to ask. They are happy to take the business. In fact - one I use beats the U.S. price straight up.

I won't be back in Vancouver for a while, and in my experience the shops in Kelowna have terrible pricing and aren't terribly knowledgeable.

On a related note any suggestions on brands at the lower end of the price scale? Obviously I want something that's safe but I don't want to pay for a bunch of fancy extras that I don't really need.

Was he just riding way beyond his capabilities? Maybe it's because I've never actually ridden before, but I don't understand how it happened. I mean I get that he crashed because he ended up on the soft shoulder, but did he target fixate or something?

Absolutely riding beyond his means. In the sense that riding at all was beyond his means. He had no control of his motorcycle at any point. He did not know the roads, he went far too fast. In parts after he fucked up a turn, you could see him shake his head. What he should have done is immediately pull off to the side and assess the situation and clear his head. Not keep gunning it and solve the problem with speed

Just riding beyond his capabilities.

He was going in too hot in pretty much every turn. Many bends before his crash, he was missing his braking points by a lot causing him to overshoot his turn and have to do a severe correction to make his turn (sometimes even almost coming to a complete stop to be able to correct his turn - that's how bad he'd miss it).

However, that's not just a motorcycle thing though. You don't even do that even if you were driving a car, so I really have no clue what that rider was thinking/doing.

the only reason for this poor riding is *************** he did NOT take a course*****
this is a typical guy who hops on a bike and starts riding cause his friends taught him.

1) no concept of where you look is where you go.
2) counter steer is not even a concept for him
3) improper lines....
4) improper acceleration

but all in all, clearly showing that he didn't take the course is the winner here

Couldn't take the course cause after motorcycle purchase all left over funds were spent on a helmet cam to catch all the epic riding and stunting he's gonna do.

That was painful to watch. It's amazing he didn't go down braking while turning or hitting an oncoming vehicle.

He also needs to learn what a double solid yellow means.

That's not totally fair. I haven't yet taken a course, and I'm god damn Rossi compared to him.

I Spotted Raid3n Crossing Lougheed a few blocks East of North Road. I was running along the road and saw him crossing through. I don't think he saw me.
