    I use D30 in the elbows of my jersey and knees of my Dakar pants. As I mentioned in PBR #12 that's all I use anymore for trail riding

    So last night I found myself lying next to my dirt bike again. This time my right hip had the displeasure to land on a rock. The standard foam hip pad wasn't quite up to this blow and I have a sore hip bone today. It got me thinking about a D3o hip pad.
    Has any one used them with success?

    Got me a Klim F5 for the tour. Love this helmet. Light and so much airflow I can't believe it. I took the liner out to install my communications equipment and was disappointed to see it was Made in China. I guess even Klim outsources to China.

    I really like the chin mount for a camera. It gives the most realistic view and doesn't get caught on low hanging branches. I took off the camera (old helmet) when I put a gps on the bike because it was in the way of seeing the gps. I do plan to try the chin mount again, with the GPS off to the side instead of center mount on the bars. I haven't decided if I want to try and capture video in the dark or not, so that will dictate if I can just replace the gopro with the light.

    I bought the oxbow voyager helmet light. I've never used a helmet light before so I am looking for info about the best place to mount it. (Top of helmet, under visor, side of helmet, chin mount) What works and what doesn't.

    I mounted mine on top of the helmet and the visor prevents reflection back at you.

    I have the Oxbow but I use it primarily for back up or if doing a long after dark session in the evening (save the battery in case something goes wrong and you need to get out). It supplements the bike head light well. I also carry a backpacking headlamp around my neck when I leave in the morning so if I have to check something on the bike or drop something whatever, it is always handy and I am not searching for it.

    I am pretty set on the XL version for my tender backside.
    Pros, Cons, does it come in pink?
    For you I'm sure they will make a pink one ;-)

    I got the non-super wide version. I am surprised at how narrow it is. I would go wider next time.

    Oxbow is the best... turns night into day... a must have for night riding. I have mine wired into the bike (and I carry the battery as a backup) so it's always full brightness.

    GL Mojave is bullet proof and simple, but smaller then you would think... I have both the Mojave and the Coyote. We use the Coyote for MotoCamping and we really put them through the paces with MotoCamping (carrying about 27lbs with all camp gear) whilst riding single track... on our 4th trip of the year and no issues, except they are not waterproof, but they do come with dry bags. The biggest thing is they are TOI supports so it's a no brainier! I have yet to decide on the Mojave or the Coyote for the tour.

    There are a couple of reasons beyond weight to consider the F5. Both are great helmets and you can't go too wrong with either. However, the F3 carbon is currently only available in Black and Black with Flow Yellow trim. The F5 is available in a variety of color options and although many of them are still highly dark colors, there are a couple lighter options. The other bigger thing in my opinion is that the F5 has more venting. So if you're worried about heat, it will vent better than even the new F3. The F5 also comes with a Gore Windstopper liner in the event you run into colder temperatures. So you may look at what dates you're doing your attempt. If it's during peak heat, light and vented would be better. If you're going late and colder temps are more likely, that might not be as big of an issue. Both have Fidlock and both are very comfortable. I'm very happy with my white and light gray F5 and am super happy I picked it for the Tour.

    Klim F5 helmet, again in the lightest color possible. The F5 is the lightest in the line up so again going for light weight to reduce fatigue over the duration of the tour.
