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. Hot days, cold days, wet days, mild days; whatever the forecast, before long rides I suit up in full-length... Read more »

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 »

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.

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 »

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 »

Dynaplug Pro Tubeless Tire Repair Kit Few motorcycle breakdowns are as common or as irritating as a flat tire. Even if you’re packing a plug kit, too often the glue has hardened from disuse and you’re still dead in the water. The beauty of the Dynaplug Pro Aluminum tire plug tool is that it can plug... Read more »

Race Tech Gold Valve Cartridge Emulators Review

Race Tech Gold Valve Cartridge Emulators

Jerry Smith
November 6, 2014

If motorcycles could be ordered like cars, with a long list of options and trim packages to choose from, odds are some current equipment would all but disappear from the motorcycling scene. Damper-rod forks, for example, have long since been obsoleted by cartridge forks, and yet survive in many bikes... Read more »
