Kicking up dust on the Arizona Backcountry Discovery Route (AZBDR). (Photo by Jon Beck) A couple of years ago, with two friends, I completed Route 5 of the Oregon Backcountry Discovery Route (ORBDR), a 750-mile, north-south mostly off-road route from California to Washington through the central and eastern... Read more »

National Cycle Street Shield EX Review

National Cycle Street Shield EX

Arden Kysely
July 10, 2015

A bike like the Honda CB1100 is ready for action right off the showroom floor, but that doesn’t mean it can’t use a few accessories to customize it for an owner’s purposes. A lot of riders would start with wind protection on a naked standard. Why beat yourself up when a securely fastened slab of... Read more »

July 9, 2015

Battery Tender Digital Voltage Indicator Buried deep inside (some much deeper than others) your motorcycle is an invisible countdown clock, otherwise known as your battery. Ride regularly, and/or keep your machine hooked to a slow charger, and the clock ticks very slowly. Don’t ride or maintain a charge... Read more »

AltRider Hemisphere Soft Luggage

AltRider Hemisphere Soft Luggage Pulling the fuses under the seat is the easiest way to disable the ABS on a Suzuki V-Strom 650XT, but I found out you can also do it by crashing in 4th gear. Such was my fate when, cruising down a gravel road in Death Valley, I hit a pit of deep sand and started swapping... Read more »

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 »

Nolan N104 EVO Modular Helmet Review

Nolan N104 EVO Modular Helmet

Mark Tuttle
July 2, 2015

The words revolution and evolution only differ by the letter r, which could very well stand for rate, as in rate of change. Revolution is usually rapid and risky, while evolution is slower, continuous and more reliable. The Nolan N104 modular helmet, for example, is a good lid its Italian makers felt... 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 »

Olympia Moto Sports Horizon Rain Jacket and Pants Review

Olympia Moto Sports Horizon Rain Jacket and Pants

Jerry Smith
June 4, 2015

Riding in the rain is either one of the great joys of motorcycling or one of its biggest hassles. Either way you look at it, you need a good rainproof outer layer to keep the rain out. Some riders choose riding gear made of waterproof material, but many others, especially those who don’t ride in rain... Read more »

The Sidi Company has been making motorcycle boots since 1970, and has a men’s and women’s range covering everything from motocross to touring, even pit boots. Liking simplicity and ease of use, I ordered up a pair of Sidi Tour Rain boots in size 11.5. Putting them on the scale, the pair weighed three... Read more »

BMW Pannier Protection by Wunderlich America

BMW Pannier Protection by Wunderlich America

Scott A. Williams
June 3, 2015

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 »
