    Motorcycle Hand Protection

    By | blog | No Comments

    Handguards don’t often show up on the Motocross track because well-groomed and often loamy dirt negate their use.

    Off-road riders generally equip their dirt bikes with handguards because of the varying obstacles that somehow always find fingers and hands.
    However, on tracks saturated with rocks especially those pellets that feel more like shotgun spray when peppering your hands, equipping your dirt bike
    with guards offers a significant advantage over those who ride bare. Even the thickest gloves prove no match to a rapidly incoming rock.

    Motocross handguards save your hands for the next Moto, protect your levers from damage and on rare occasions help prevent larger stones
    from lodging in between your pressed brake or clutch lever and the grip. It’s not the coolest thing to race Motocross with handguards
    especially when not needed but if the track’s reputation precedes itself or you notice during practice an unusual amount of painful roost then buck up and grab a pair.

    Any protection helps but if you’re looking for the sleekest and stylish while maintaining versatility, durability
    and ease of installation then check out the best Motocross handguards below.

    Grossi Brothers

    Billy Grossi in the pits.  Admiring a pouch for Tear offs that I gave him.  I always enjoyed being around “Sugar Bear!”

    Billy Grossi, an AHRMA and AMA member, was severely injured in the Sears Point race the weekend of April 27 & 28. He suffered a leg broken in 5 places, cracked ribs, dislocated shoulder and concussion, and spent 3 days in the hospital. Any one knowing Billy knows he is a fine person, an excellent racer and an all-around nice guy.

    Bill and Bob Grossi: The Grossi boys from Santa Cruz were both factory riders at one point, and both have outdoor national wins. Bob won the ’73 Daytona race on a Husqvarna, which actually counted as the opening round of the ’73 AMA Motocross Championships; Billy, otherwise known as “Sugar Bear,” won the ’74 opener at Hangtown on a Honda.

    My favorite picture of “Sugar Bear” is on the Trans AMA Poster that Mid Ohio would use.  It is on our Home slider.  Billy is wearing the original “Mud Muckers”
