High-Tech Motorcycle Gadget Buyers Guide

May 30, 2012

When I was a kid, one of my favorite after-school cartoons was Inspector Gadget, about a quirky cyborg detective (think of a clumsy, incompetent Terminator with the personality of Maxwell Smart and the attire of Inspector Clouseau) who, along with his niece Penny and Brain the Dog, embarked on zany... Read more »

Running out of gas on a motorcycle is annoying. Running out of air in your tires, though, is an emergency, especially if it happens fast, and at speed. But while you can––and should––check your bike’s tire pressures before every ride, it’s a lot harder to know what’s going on during... Read more »

I’ve never really been much of a gadget guy. Yet, thanks to the demands of our on-street training tours, I rely quite heavily on electronics these days. Minimally, my bike is equipped with an intercom, a broadcasting radio, a GPS unit, satellite tracker, cell phone, iPad and video camera. As a result,... Read more »

Bluetooth Helmet Headset Buyers Guide

Among our many reasons to ride, lots of us like to get away from the constant communication involved in daily life, to be alone in our helmets with just our thoughts and the rush of the wind. Others among us wear helmets but regret the isolation that they and wind noise bring to the motorcycling experience,... Read more »

[This TeleType WorldNav 3500 GPS Product Review was originally published in the October 2011 issue of Rider magazine] Even though I derive special satisfaction from spreading out a cartographic representation of the world and plotting a route by dragging my finger along the squiggles of intriguing, promising... Read more »

[This Throttlemeister gear review was originally published in the July 2011 issue of Rider magazine] by James Parchman Cruise control is so commonplace on today’s autos that we hardly give it a second thought. That wasn’t always the case. Early drivers sought accelerator pedal relief with a dashboard-mounted... Read more »

Chatterbox XBi2 Communicators

Rider Magazine
July 19, 2011

Riding time is “me” time, with the plush interior of my helmet providing sanctuary from email, phone calls and deadlines. No iPod, rarely a GPS, just the voice in my head. I compose Pulitzer-winning stories on such rides, but something always gets lost in translation when I finally put words on paper.... Read more »

Joe Michaud
July 19, 2011

[This Cardo Scala Rider G4 PowerSet gear review was originally published in the October 2010 issue of Rider] I’ve had three on-bike communicator systems and they’ve all fallen short of their promises. Pervasive wind noise, intrusive VOX controls, buzzy static, insufficient volume and uncomfortable... Read more »

SPOT Satellite Personal Tracker Review

SPOT Satellite Personal Tracker

Greg Drevenstedt
December 31, 2010

Paul was the Ennis Del Mar to my Jack Twist as we rode our trusty steeds up to Brokeback (Sawmill) Mountain. His BMW, my KTM and our unbridled bromance on the trail. We stopped occasionally to send “all OK” messages via satellite, to take happy snaps and to take in the grand ridgeline views under... Read more »
