DP Brakes Sintered Brake Pads Review

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 »

Corbin Vintage Gunfighter Seat for Triumph Bonneville Review

Corbin Vintage Gunfighter Seat for Triumph Bonneville

Jerry Smith
December 30, 2014

A bike like the Triumph Bonneville practically cries out for customizing. My own Bonnie suggests it to me now and then, but I usually ignore its pleas. Still, I have to admit the café-racer look appeals to me and, as long as it didn’t affect the function of the bike, I decided to dip a toe in the... Read more »

Sedici Distanza Slant Saddlebags

November 11, 2014

Riders who want to mount the same luggage on several motorcycles or leave it off entirely can go with hard-sided bags at great expense, or take the inexpensive way out and use soft luggage. The Sedici Distanza Slant soft saddlebags from Cycle Gear ring the register at just $149.99 but are quite fully... Read more »

Dynaplug Pro Tubeless Tire Repair Kit Review

Dynaplug Pro Tubeless Tire Repair Kit Few motorcycle breakdowns are as common or as irritating as a flat tire. Even if you’re packing a plug kit, too often the glue has hardened from disuse and you’re still dead in the water. The beauty of the Dynaplug Pro Aluminum tire plug tool is that it can plug... Read more »

Race Tech Gold Valve Cartridge Emulators Review

Race Tech Gold Valve Cartridge Emulators

Jerry Smith
November 6, 2014

If motorcycles could be ordered like cars, with a long list of options and trim packages to choose from, odds are some current equipment would all but disappear from the motorcycling scene. Damper-rod forks, for example, have long since been obsoleted by cartridge forks, and yet survive in many bikes... Read more »

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

Joe Michaud
August 14, 2014

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 »
