Happy Trails SU Rack and Teton Clif-Cut Panniers for Triumph Bonneville

Happy Trails Teton Clif-Cut Panniers

Jerry Smith
July 9, 2014

You don’t have to ride an adventure bike around the world to appreciate sturdy metal panniers, nor does the bike you ride need knobbies and a sky-high seat to take you on an adventure. Triumph’s street-going twins earned their adventure merit badge at the hands of well-known riders like Ted Simon,... Read more »

Joker Machine Motorcycle Ignition Switch Relocation Bracket for Triumph Twins

Joker Machine Ignition Switch Relocation Bracket for Triumph Twins

Jerry Smith
July 8, 2014

I love my 2012 Bonneville, don’t get me wrong. It’s just that some things about it drive me crazy, like the absence of a toolkit or a place to put one, the bolt-on seat that requires a hex key to remove, and the ignition switch’s location in the left headlight bracket. That last irritation became... Read more »

Rox Pivoting Risers Review

Rox Pivoting Risers

Arden Kysely
June 4, 2014

Bar risers are just as handy for the custom or cruiser rider wanting to tailor a motorcycle’s fit as they are for dual-sporters and adventure riders looking to be comfortable while standing up. Standard risers work great if all you need is a higher hand perch, but they don’t let you adjust the fore/aft... Read more »

Aerostich High Tech Cot Review

Aerostich High Tech Cot

Clement Salvadori
May 6, 2014

Sleep is important, especially when traveling, and gone are those days when I could dig a shallow hip-hole, roll up in a five-dollar Navajo blanket and have a pleasant night. Nowadays, I prefer a good mattress on top of box springs—but those are a bit difficult to bungee to the back of a bike. In recent... Read more »

Progressive Suspension 444 Series Shocks Review

Progressive Suspension 444 Series Shocks

Jerry Smith
May 5, 2014

Motorcycle suspension technology has moved beyond the era when a pair of limp, price-point rear shocks was state-of-the-art, and nobody is happier about that than me. The problem is that now I expect modern suspension performance from every bike I ride, including my 2012 Triumph Bonneville, which came... Read more »

Ride Like a Pro DVDs and Book: Review

The New Ride Like a Pro DVD

Greg Drevenstedt
April 30, 2014

Since joining the Rider staff in 2008, I’ve attended riding schools on racetracks, on the street and off-road. Every school has taught me valuable lessons on how to ride more safely and proficiently. A few simple techniques that I learned early on, when I reviewed Jerry “Motorman” Palladino’s... Read more »

Nelson-Rigg Sport-Touring Soft Luggage Review

Nelson-Rigg Sport-Touring Soft Luggage

Greg Drevenstedt
April 30, 2014

Lockable hard luggage isn’t available for all motorcycles, and when it is, a set of cases and mounting hardware can cost $1,000 or more. Although it provides less security and weather protection, soft luggage is lighter, cheaper and can be mounted to almost any motorcycle. California-based Nelson-Rigg... Read more »

Motion Pro BeadPro Review

web-BeadPro

Arden Kysely
April 11, 2014

Motion Pro BeadPro Roadside tire repair just got easier, especially for those of us running tires with tubes. Repairing a simple puncture in a tubeless tire is easy, but fixing a tubed tire, like those on my BMW F 800 GS, means breaking the bleepin’ bead. Until now, the best “portable” bead breakers... Read more »

Nelson-Rigg Sport Tank Bag and Expandable Sport Tail Pack Review

Nelson-Rigg Sport Tank Bag and Expandable Sport Tail Pack.

Clement Salvadori
April 3, 2014

Nelson-Rigg has been making soft touring luggage for more than 30 years, so it pretty much has the art of making tankbags, seatbags, saddlebags, etc., figured out. Including ease of use. Take its CL-1025 Sport Tank Bag. It is about a foot long and 9 inches wide, with an average height of 6 inches, for... Read more »

National Cycle Plexifairing GT Windscreen Review

National Cycle Plexifairing GT

Jerry Smith
April 2, 2014

Split personalities are nothing new to motorcyclists. Mild-mannered drones by day, toiling away at school or in the office or at the job site, then, as soon as the whistle blows at the end of the day, we turn into two-wheel adventurers. Your bike can reflect that shift in mood, too, with a full-coverage... Read more »
