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

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 »

The Essential Guide to Motorcycle Travel, 2nd Edition – Book Review

Essential Guide to Motorcycle Travel, 2nd edition

Clement Salvadori
March 11, 2014

Had I had the benefits of Dale Conyer’s book, The Essential Guide to Motorcycle Travel, back when I took my first real motorcycle trip, I would have been a good deal happier. There 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... Read more »

motoPockets Review

Topcase motoPocket.

Mark Tuttle
March 3, 2014

We all carry around a lot of personal stuff these days, often small things that are easily dropped and seem to multiply like tribles—wallets, keys, cell phones, reading glasses, sunglasses, lip balm, sunscreen, garage door openers, etc. Lacking center consoles and sun visors, there just isn’t a good... 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 »

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 »

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 »
