Rider Magazine Staff
October 13, 2014

With the 2014 riding season drawing to a close and the holidays approaching, now is the perfect time to take stock of your motorcycle gear and decide what needs to be replaced. Has your favorite riding jacket mysteriously shrunk, or have its seams or zippers blown out? Is your helmet showing its age,... Read more »

Butty Buddy Motorcycle Passenger Seat Review

Butty Buddy

James Parchman
September 5, 2014

You’ve seen the video: A willowy blonde standing on a lonely stretch of highway with her thumb out. A chopperesque motorcycle slows to a stop and the rider nods for her to climb aboard. There’s no pillion so she perches on the rear fender, smiles and hangs on. They roar off as the music plays. If... Read more »

Air Hawk Comfort Seating System Review

Air Hawk Comfort Seating System

Air Hawk Comfort Seating System Seats are perhaps the most replaced factory parts in the riding world. I have replaced a few myself. There must be a better way! One of my bikes has a stock seat that is “pretty” comfortable for 90 percent of my riding miles. It’s not enough of a butt pain to replace,... Read more »

Motorcycle Camping the Lazy…Er, Easy Way

Adventure touring bikes camping

Mark Tuttle
August 6, 2014

Adventure touring bikes can take you into some pretty remote places, but on a busy motorcycle comparison test we look for a lazy man’s campsite with running water, toilets and a picnic table, perhaps even a camp store. Motorcycle camping is an absolute blast, and the cost savings over hoteling can... Read more »

Roadhouse Motorcycle Seats Review

Roadhouse Seats

Joe Michaud
August 5, 2014

The custom leather rider and passenger seats on my BMW R 1150 RT were built by a popular saddle maker years ago. It was a fine combination that worked well for a long time, but then I needed a replacement. Roadhouse Seats in Las Vegas offers an intriguing way to upgrade seats for most cruisers and touring... Read more »

Clearwater Voltage Sentry Review

Clearwater Voltage Sentry

Erik Munck
July 31, 2014

Clearwater Voltage Sentry No-maintenance batteries will start their die-off process the moment they are put into service. Often they will go from fully functioning to dead with little or no warning. Replacement is the only remedy, but that won’t help you much if you’re stuck in the middle... Read more »

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 »
