Today’s customer review on the Fly Racing Barricade Body Armor Suit








Display Name:JC in NC
Title: Excellent upper body suit
Cons: Wrists are a bit too small
Date Submitted: July 15, 2014
Pros:  Protective, breathable, stays in place, pricing


Fly Racing makes some great offroad gear with most, if not all, of the features you want and at a price the average Joe can afford. This suit fits great and provides all the right armor in all the right places. When in place the suit doesn’t shift, but still allows all of the dexterity you need on a bike. The mesh fabric allows air to flow right on through, which is welcome on these nasty summer days in NC. This suit will work under a street jacket too. I bought this for my son and the only sizing con is the wrists are a bit small. That’s an easy fix though, so 5 stars. I’ve got an Impact Rigg SE suit and I find this Fly Barricade to be just as good at a lower entry price.

WRR53: Riding the Mighty Kawasaki ZRX

I’ve had several requests over the past few years for more information about my ZRX, which has been featured in quite a few of our WRR videos as well as other product tests that we’ve done. So, I guess it’s finally time to pay homage to what is the Mighty Kawasaki ZRX.

I’ve had my ZRX for about 5 years now, and that was after patiently saving and waiting to get exactly the one I wanted. When I had first laid eyes on a ZRX it struck a chord with me – I knew I had to have one some day. I’m sure most of you have had that happen. You see that bike and it’s just YOU. The ZRX is everything I want in a motorcycle. It is capable of long distance rides in comfort (compared to a supersport), and yet it’s capable of fairly high paced riding in the twisties or even track duty. Heck, a team a ZRX at Pikes Peak last year! Then there’s the torque – oh the glorious torque. This is probably one of the most well known traits of the ZRX, if you twist the throttle you better HANG ON. The ZRX makes it’s peak torque at 5500rpm, with nearly half its rev range left to go, it just pulls and pulls and pulls and… well, you get the picture.

Jack of all trades, master of none is definitely a very apt quote for describing the ZRX (as well as many sport-standard bikes). It’s certainly not the best sportbike, or the best touring bike, or the best drag racer – but you know what? It’s pretty darn good at all of them. And what’s really great about it, is you can modify it to suit your individual needs and purposes that you desire. I went several years with my ZRX as my main form of transportation.
