Rider Magazine

[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 »

Throttlemeister Motorcycle Cruise Control Review


Rider Contributor
September 14, 2011

[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.

Chatterbox XBi2 Communicators Review

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 »

[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.

September 20, 2010

Just as carrying an umbrella or rain gear has a way of warding off inclement weather, packing tools and a patch kit seems to help prevent the inconvenience of roadside repairs. Or it could just be that today’s motorcycles are reliable and tires are durable. Nonetheless, whether you uphold the Boy Scouts’... Read more »

Arden Kysely
August 20, 2010

One thing a helmet cam has to be is simple to use, and the ContourHD1080p has that down. This rugged little tube of anodized aluminum starts recording when you slide the long top switch forward and stops when you slide it back. It’s easy to do with gloved hands and built-in stops at either end let... Read more »

Review by Reg Kittrelle [This GoPro HERO Motorcycle Helmet Camera Review was originally published in the April 2010 issue of American Rider magazine] At about the size of a couple of matchboxes, the GoPro Hero video camera is just what you need when a nonrider asks, “What’s it like to ride a... Read more »
