HCI Helmet Review

Twin Cities Rider First Issue David Harrington
April 2011 - The Helmet Issue

Thanks for taking a look at Twin Cities Rider. This is our sixth issue of what we hope will become your favourite source for motorcycle, scooter and moped information in the Minneapolis & St. Paul area.

Royal Enfield Bullet C5 Long-term Review
In December of 2010, we reviewed a Royal Enfield G5 motorcycle. We liked so much that we purchased a similar model, the Royal Enfield C5. In the coming months, we will let you know how it runs and what it's like to live with on a day-to-day basis. CLICK HERE to jump to the first posting about this bike.

It's April, tax day is fast approaching, and most of the snow is gone. Every day I see more and more motorcycles and scooters on the road. We know (believe me, we KNOW) how much you want to be back on two wheels. We know how sick and tired you are of winter and how completely ready you are for it to be riding season. We also know that you are at increased risk when riding this time of year. You are out of practice and need to give yourself some time to get your "motorcycle legs" back. The other drivers on the road (the ones who are trying to kill you every single day) are NOT used to seeing you on the road. That's not to say they EVER pay attention to you, but it's particularly bad in the spring. The roads are filled with potholes and covered with sand. Suffice to say that a lot of things are conspiring against you in the early spring.

Wearing a good helmet is one of the simplest things you can do you help protect yourself from potential injury when facing this myriad of springtime dangers. CLICK HERE to jump to our Spring 2011 Helmet Guide article.

Jordana Whyte HCI Helmet ReviewHCI "Copter" Style Helmet Review
Jordana is back with us, this time sharing her thoughts on the HCI series 15 copter-style helmet. This is a fiberglass three-quarter helmet with an integral visor of the pilot style (cut-out by the nose to allow for breathing apparatus as used by pilots). CLICK HERE to jump to the review.

Several features of this website are not necessarily associated with any single issue of Twin Cities Rider, but are here as resources for you. Our calendar page features a list of events in the Twin Cities area. The links page includes lists of area dealers and shops as well as groups & clubs. If you just can't get enough blather about motorcycles and scooters, check out the Two-Wheels-And-A-Motor podcasts or the Just-Gotta-Scoot podcasts. We have recently added a "Sales Corner" for local readers looking to sell (or buy). It was empty when I wrote this, so please let me know if you have something you want to post there.  Of course it goes without saying that we desperately hope you will visit our sponsors and give them a chance to earn your business.

Twin Cities Rider will be published (more or less) monthly during the riding season and as appropriate during the winter. You can SUBSCRIBE HERE to receive email notification of new issues. Please CONTACT US if you have any questions or comments.
