Sena 20S Motorcycle Bluetooth Communication System Review

Sena 20S Motorcycle Bluetooth Communication System

Scott A. Williams
July 2, 2015

I’ve been disappointed by the sound quality of wireless, in-helmet communication systems. Sena’s 20S Motorcycle Bluetooth (4.0) Communication System has the best sound quality I’ve found in a wireless comm system, plus sophisticated features. You can make hands-free calls from your iPhone or Android... Read more »

Anyone that’s used a T-handle driver knows how versatile they are. Motion Pro’s spinning handle makes them handier yet. Their Spinner T-Handle Bit Driver has been at the top of my toolbox the last few months and I’ve reached for it often while working on my bikes. So far it’s been handy for body... Read more »

BMW Pannier Protection by Wunderlich America

BMW Pannier Protection by Wunderlich America If your liquid-cooled BMW R 1200 RT tips over, contact with terra firma gets expensive. The valve covers and panniers stick out, and damage from parts gouged or broken due to impact quickly runs into four figures. Ouch. Engine bars that protect the jugs are... Read more »

Bilt Explorer Dry Bag Review

Bilt Explorer Dry Bag

James Parchman
June 2, 2015

Maybe it’s a bit of literary stretch to claim that Jim Bronson was a famous motorcycle explorer. But after chucking a newspaper job, then duffeling his earthly possessions to his Sportster, Bronson’s stoplight conversation with a traditionally suited motorist resonated with an entire late 1960s generation... Read more »

Clearwater Lights and CANopener for BMW Review

Scott A. Williams
April 8, 2015

If you want to see better at night and be seen better by day as you ride your BMW tourer, consider installing super high-output LED auxiliary lights from Clearwater Lights. And use a CANopener. Unlike auxiliary wiring harnesses that are designed to circumvent BMW’s sophisticated CANbus wiring network,... Read more »

Touratech Desierto 3 Motorcycle Fairing Review

Touratech Desierto 3 Motorcycle Fairing

Arden Kysely
March 5, 2015

I knew from the get-go that wind protection was not a strong suit of my BMW F 800 GS. Earplugs sufficed while I made busy fitting other aftermarket parts. When I finally looked up from my accessorizing, the screen options had multiplied. Touratech’s Desierto 3 stood out from the crowd as a complete... Read more »

Race Tech G3-S IFP Custom Dual Shocks Review

Race Tech G3-S IFP Custom Dual Shocks

Bill Stermer
March 5, 2015

If you own and ride an older bike, obtaining upgrades for it can be frustrating. A year ago, I had Race Tech rebuild the fork on my 1976 BMW R75/6 (Rider, June 2013), and experienced a renewed joy in riding it. Not only was the ride improved, but it no longer leaked fork fluid on the front brake disc.... Read more »

Nelson-Rigg CL-2020 GPS Tank Bag Review

Nelson-Rigg CL-2020 GPS Tank Bag

Jerry Smith
March 4, 2015

Just about everyone needs a way to carry a few things––gloves, a sweater, a phone––when they ride more than a few miles. For years, tankbags filled that role, but the time is long past when you could just toss all your stuff in a big open compartment and rummage around for items when you needed... Read more »

DP Brakes Sintered Brake Pads Review

DP Brakes Sintered Brake Pads

Ken Lee
March 2, 2015

DP Brakes Sintered Brake Pads Going fast is fun, but the ability to stop quickly is essential. Because when a bad situation arises, the capacity to brake hard, scrub off speed and come to a safe halt will save your bacon. In a related thought, as motorcycle technology marches onward, it’s the brakes... Read more »

Dirt-Bagz Ranger Saddlebags Review

Dirt-Bagz Ranger Saddlebags

Clement Salvadori
February 3, 2015

A lot of aftermarket companies make saddlebags and panniers for dual-purpose motorcycles. I’m a proponent of simplicity and softness—simple mounting and soft bags. I needed to give the Kawasaki KLR650 New Edition some luggage capacity for the Lost Coast story on page 36, and DBz Products has what... Read more »
