Condor Pit Stop/Trailer Stop Wheel Chock Review

Condor Pit Stop/Trailer Stop Wheel Chock Review

Greg Drevenstedt
January 29, 2013

Dozens and dozens of motorcycles pass through our doors every year. Test bikes arrive in vans, get transferred on trailers, get stored in “the cage” at the office and in our garages at home, and leave in the beds of pickup trucks. We’re awash in Battery Tender wires and tie-down straps. Typically,... Read more »

Splitweight Waterproof Motorcycle Seat Cover Review

January 29, 2013

It’s the day of your big ride, and you awake to the sound of rain falling gently outside. You gulp down a cup of coffee and, with the skies clearing, you suit up, walk out to the bike—and find a pool of water on the seat. Now is when you’d usually go back inside, grab a wad of paper towels and... Read more »

Progressive Suspension 465 Shock Absorber and Fork Springs (2002 Honda ST1100) Review

Clement Salvadori
January 3, 2013

A lot of things wear out on a motorcycle. Oil gets old, tires need changing, and the longer you keep a bike the more things need replacing. Like suspension units, which generally involve springs and damping devices. Despite the minor miracles of modern metallurgy, springs do get a little less springy... Read more »

Ninja 1000 Touring Accessories

Overlooking Yosemite’s Half Dome.

Greg Drevenstedt
January 2, 2013

Kawasaki Genuine Accessories can transform the Ninja 1000 from a day-ride sportbike into a days-on-the-road sport tourer. The Givi-made, 35-liter-each saddlebags ($594.95, plus $534.95 for mounts) with color-matched trim panels ($129.95) look like they were made for the bike, and they are easy to open,... Read more »

Yamaha FJR Suspension Upgrades from Race Tech

Tony Marasco, Race Tech’s ace suspension tech, at work. One final suspension adjustment before rolling out the door would include setting the bike’s static sag front and rear.

Rich Cox

Some things we are sure of. First, there are a lot of FJRs running around out there; second, with the sagging economy, FJR owners are probably holding onto their beloved bikes longer than ever; and third, many would welcome a tightening-up of their bike’s suspension systems. So, in conjunction with... Read more »

Doubletake Mirrors Review

Doubletake Mirrors

Greg Drevenstedt
November 26, 2012

The stock mirrors on my 1998 Kawasaki KLR650 died honorably, in the line of duty. The left one bit the dust when my KLR tipped over after a challenging hill climb. As three of us stood around catching our breath, the small foot of the kickstand sank into the soft dirt and the bike fell over, shearing... Read more »

How to Ride Off-Road Motorcycles (Book Review)

How-to-Ride-Off-Road-Motorcycles-web

Greg Drevenstedt
November 21, 2012

No matter how many times street motorcyclists are told that riding off-road will improve their on-road skills, many of them brush it aside. Street riders and dirt riders are often like oil and water. You’re either one or the other, and never the twain shall meet. However, I can attest first-hand, having... Read more »

Cargol Turn & Go Flat Repair Kit Review

Cargol Turn & Go Flat Repair Kit

Jerry Smith
November 7, 2012

Along with better handling, cooler running and longer tread life, one of the less-appreciated advantages of tubeless tires is that if you get a flat, you can put in a temporary plug without even taking the wheel off the bike and ride slowly to a shop to have a permanent plug installed. Of all the emergency... Read more »

The Condor Pit Stop/Trailer Stop holds the motorcycle securely in place, allowing it to stand up on its own.

Wunderlich BMW GS Bolt-Ons Review

Wunderlich BMW GS Bolt-Ons: Lever Guard

Mark Tuttle
October 5, 2012

There is some irony involved in riding a heavy adventure tourer offroad that is fitted with scads of bars, plates and screens to prevent damage when you inevitably dump it…rather than just riding a lighter dual-sport or dirt bike in the first place. Adventure touring usually means connecting long stretches... Read more »
