Troy Lee Designs Steve McQueen HelmetThe Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil/Honda Racing Team wore attractive looking helmets at the opening AMA Supercross race in Anaheim, promoting a limited-edition design.

The design of these helmets Wil Hahn and Cole Seely donned? The first editions in a series of Steve McQueen helmet styles that will be offered over the next three years.

The motorcycle helmet, which is on display at the Troy Lee showroom in Corona, black porn Calif., retails for $525, the first edition having a production run of only 700 units. Troy Lee Designs has entered a three-year partnership with the Steve McQueen estate, making the limited-edition helmets possible for production.

The first helmet in the line will be available at select retailers in the U.S. and internationally, and at troyleedesigns.com in June 2010.

It seems every time I'm on my bike, a woman asks me how I learned to ride.  She'd love to join me, but the process seems so mysterious!  How can she start?  In my case, I took a Motorcycle Safety Foundation class (I'll admit it – simply to  avoid the California DMV test!).

But there is a huge difference between two days of drills with MSF instructors and being out on the road.  Christine Firehock's Kickstart Beginner Rider Instructional DVD helps fill the gap.  Geared to novice or re-entry riders, the two hour DVD introduces the main controls of a motorcycle and shows step-by-step riding techniques with clear, easy to follow demonstrations. Christine also discusses safety techniques and how to manage traffic.

Christine Firehock is an MSF RiderCoach who has been teaching a beginner's course at her school, The American Motorcycle Driving School, since 1986. AMDS boasts that 98% of their students pass the NYS DMV road tests, and her training style translates successfully to the DVD.

Produced in 2003, the graphics and production are a little dated, but the principles remain valid, and Christine's warm, enthusiastic personality encourages new riders to practice with confidence.  For me, the best part of the DVD was being able to watch it over and over again.  I must have watched the chapter on slow speed turns 50 times! If you're a beginning rider looking to improve your skills, buy this DVD.  It's well worth the $25, and is available from her Web site, ckskickstart.com.
