BMW GS Dry Suit Review

BMW GS Dry Suit

Mark Tuttle
February 28, 2014

BMW offers an amazing riding suit called the Rallye that is the envy of many adventure riders, whether or not they ride a BMW. The design is such that it’s suitable for on- and off-road riding in all kinds of weather, and the styling and construction really are a cut above. Trouble is, together the... Read more »

Bushtec Quantum Sport Trailer Review

Bushtec Quantum Sport Trailer

James Parchman
February 28, 2014

Bushtec is a name you’re probably familiar with. It was the first example of a “big wheel” style of motorcycle trailer, invented in 1974 by Bill Bushling for a friend who was unable to find a commercial model to his liking. Word of mouth kept Bill busy producing trailers at his little workshop... Read more »

Dainese Long Range D-WP Boots Review

Dainese Long Range D-WP Boots

Greg Drevenstedt
February 27, 2014

These days, motorcycle boots are as specialized as motorcycles themselves, with different styles for sport/track riding, touring, dual-sport/adventure riding, full-on motocross and all points in between. A high-quality pair of waterproof touring boots offer the most versatility, as I’ve found with... Read more »

Book Review: The Essential Guide to Motorcycle Travel (Second Edition)

The Essential Guide to Motorcycle Travel (Second Edition) by Dale Coyner

Clement Salvadori
February 18, 2014

Had I had the benefits of this book back when I took my first real motorcycle trip, I would have been a good deal happier. Here we were, two 17-year-olds tearing around for two months on a pair of used 250s, and I think the closest thing we had to rain-gear was my old army poncho. We didn’t even... Read more »

Suiting Up for Road or Trail—Adventure Motorcycle Gear

Paul Beck at Hadley Butte

Greg Drevenstedt
February 3, 2014

In our October 2013 issue, we introduced you to Paul Beck, an experienced adventure rider whose 2007 BMW R 1200 GS served as a project bike (Über-Adventure Upgrade). In addition to kitting out Paul’s bike, we kitted out his body. Since he’s a big guy (6-foot, 4-inches and 300-plus pounds), we sought... Read more »

Before taking on the Oregon Backcountry Discovery Route, we spooned Metzeler Karoo 3 tires on our 2014 BMW F 800 GS Adventure test bike and Paul Beck’s 2007 BMW R 1200 GS project bike (Rider, October 2013). Route 5 of the ORBDR is a 750-mile off-road track through central Oregon, from California to... Read more »

NoNoise Motorsport Hearing Protectors Review

NoNoise Motorsport Hearing Protectors

Greg Drevenstedt
January 31, 2014

Just as I’ve always worn a full-face helmet to protect my entire head, I’ve always worn earplugs to protect my ears from the potential damage caused by wind noise. Even with a windscreen, a fairing and a full-face helmet, wind noise can be unpleasantly loud at highway speeds. Whether from attending... Read more »

Joe Rocket Speedway Motorcycle Jacket Review

Joe Rocket Speedway Jacket

Mike Vaughan
January 30, 2014

“No skulls, no chains, no pointless noise,” is how Joe Rocket describes its Speedway jacket, and that’s a pretty good description. This is a well made, 1.2mm, drum-dyed, classic black leather motorcycle jacket. The only nods to decor are the optional red or ivory stripes that run along the sleeves... Read more »

Screaming Banshee Horn System Review

The Full Banshee Horn System includes a 120-decibel air horn and proprietary Screaming Banshee control unit.

Ken Aiken
January 6, 2014

The Full Banshee Horn System includes a 120-decibel air horn and proprietary Screaming Banshee control unit. Stock motorcycle horns are often rather pathetic little tooters, and most motorists driving with windows rolled up and the radio blasting won’t even hear your warning cry. The Screaming Banshee... Read more »
