HJC IS-MAX II Helmet Review

HJC IS-MAX II Motorcycle Helmet

Greg Drevenstedt
February 2, 2015

Flip-up helmets have won me over. I love being able to quickly raise the chinbar—during a roadside stop, at a gas station, wherever—and have a chat with my passenger or co-riders, or drink water or eat a snack or take a selfie or apply sunblock or blow my nose, all without having to remove my helmet. HJC... Read more »

Kenda K676 RetroActive tires, mounted on a 1974 Kawasaki H2B. Not long ago, options were few and far between when it came to re-skinning your 1970s or ’80s-era motorcycle. With time, more tire manufacturers have begun to provide options to those with older bikes, and it makes sense—there are a great... Read more »

TwistedCore Summer Base Layer Compression Shirt

Greg Drevenstedt
December 31, 2014

TwistedCore Summer Base Layer Compression Shirt I’m a base layers true-believer. For the past several years I have sworn by the benefits of wearing synthetic base layers under my riding gear.

Corbin Vintage Gunfighter Seat for Triumph Bonneville Review

Corbin Vintage Gunfighter Seat for Triumph Bonneville

Jerry Smith
December 30, 2014

A bike like the Triumph Bonneville practically cries out for customizing. My own Bonnie suggests it to me now and then, but I usually ignore its pleas. Still, I have to admit the café-racer look appeals to me and, as long as it didn’t affect the function of the bike, I decided to dip a toe in the... Read more »

Bill Stermer
December 30, 2014

While motorcycling remains a primarily male activity, more women are riding their own bikes and as passengers. Still, it’s often difficult to find riding wear that is cut specifically for women, and especially top-line gear at a reasonable price. That’s why I was enthused to find this new Tour Master... Read more »

Arden Kysely

New tires always dress up a bike, and the Michelin Anakee IIIs that I slipped onto my BMW F 800 GS more than 5,500 miles ago were no exception. An upgrade of Michelin’s popular Anakee 2, the IIIs are a 90/10 on-/off-pavement tire designed for big dual-sports and adventure machines. Initial testing... Read more »

Sedici Distanza Slant Saddlebags

James Parchman
November 11, 2014

Riders who want to mount the same luggage on several motorcycles or leave it off entirely can go with hard-sided bags at great expense, or take the inexpensive way out and use soft luggage. The Sedici Distanza Slant soft saddlebags from Cycle Gear ring the register at just $149.99 but are quite fully... Read more »
