Dunlop Elite 3 Multi-Tread Motorcycle Tires

Dunlop Elite 3 Multi-Tread Motorcycle Tires

October 4, 2013

Honda’s GL1800 Gold Wing is a well-balanced machine, combining comfort and performance in a bike whose size and heft seem at odds with its eye-opening acceleration and handling. One area in which that balance is off, however, is tire wear. Rack up a lot of highway miles and you’ll often reach the... Read more »

Olympia Moto Sports Avenger Suit Review

Olympia Moto Sports Avenger Suit

Greg Drevenstedt
October 3, 2013

Not long after I evaluated Olympia Moto Sports’ Stealth suit (Rider, October 2008), the predecessor to the Avenger tested here, I crashed while wearing it. Mercifully, we rarely crash-test apparel, taking it on faith that the manufacturer’s claims for protection will hold up should we have trouble... Read more »

Öhlins TTX Shocks for BMW R 1200 GS

Ohlins TTX36 front shock

September 26, 2013

The stock front and rear shocks on the BMW R 1200 perform well most of the time, but their range of adjustment is limited and they can become overwhelmed by heavy loads or extreme riding conditions. Paul Beck, whose 2007 R 1200 GS project bike was featured in our October issue, is bigger (6-foot-4, 300-plus... Read more »

Years ago, when I got my first set of custom-made racing leathers, the first time I put them on I thought something was terribly wrong. The arms were too long, the seat hung down like a full diaper, I could barely stand up straight––they just didn’t fit. The tailor listened patiently to me freaking... Read more »

Riders need to stand out, especially when visibility is reduced—and stand out you will in a Harley-Davidson Genuine MotorClothes Hi-Vis Rain Suit. It is available in orange or yellow, although the orange somehow seems a better complement to the huge, reflective Harley logo across the back. There’s... Read more »

Mark Tuttle
August 10, 2013

Adventure-touring riders are faced with a potentially bewildering variety of tires for their bikes from which to choose. Fortunately, most of us have a pretty good idea how much off-road riding we actually do with these versatile but large and heavy motorcycles, and can use that as our guide. Serious... Read more »

2013 Buyers Guide: Touring and Sport-Touring Tires

Bill Stermer
August 7, 2013

Tires seem to be a pretty simple proposition. They’re round and they’re black. All we ask of them is that that they grip well, last a decent number of miles and don’t cost too much. However, beneath this rather bland exterior lies a tremendous amount of technology born of relentless research. To... Read more »

Bill Mayer Saddles Custom Motorcycle Seat for Triumph Bonneville Review

Bill Mayer Saddles Custom Motorcycle Seat for Triumph Bonneville.

Jerry Smith
August 6, 2013

I’m at that age where the things I enjoyed when I was younger exert an irresistible pull on me. One result of this is that I bought a 2012 Triumph Bonneville earlier this year. The bike’s styling drew me to it, and its performance and handling reeled me in. But one part of the classic experience... Read more »

Racer Limes Gloves Review

Racer Limes are high-quality goat and cow leather gloves designed for sport riding in mild to hot weather.

Greg Drevenstedt
July 29, 2013

First things first. The name of these gloves, Limes, is pronounced lee-mas, not like the fruit. And second, yes, they also come in black only. Even though the white-black color scheme is a bit flashy for me, sliding the Racer Limes gloves onto my hands makes me forget all about such vanity. Racer Gloves... Read more »
