Aerostich Transit 2 Suit Back in 2008, Aerostich released the first-generation Transit suit, made of Gore-Tex Pro Shell leather—top-grain leather fused with a breathable, waterproof inner membrane. During tanning, the leather is treated with repellents so it won’t absorb water like traditional leather,... 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 »

Olympia Moto Sports Horizon Rainsuit Review

Olympia Moto Sports Horizon Rainsuit

Jerry Smith
April 3, 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 »

Dainese Fulcrum C2 Gore-Tex Boots Review

Dainese Fulcrum C2 Gore-Tex Boots

Greg Drevenstedt
April 2, 2015

Elastic bellows on the Dainese Fulcrum C2 Gore-Tex Boots allow the foot to flex naturally. To get my seal of approval, touring boots need to be comfortable, durable, waterproof, easy to get on and off (yet stay securely on my feet while riding), and capable of protecting my feet and ankles, with their... Read more »

Joe Rocket Women’s Trixie Waterproof Boots Review

Joe Rocket Trixie Waterproof Boots are for women, with a low-cut design and laser-etched detailing. Motorcycle boots are always a compromise between style, comfort and protection. We want them to look good, to feel good on and off the bike, and to prevent or minimize injury in a crash, but few boots... Read more »

JunoJumpr Portable Jump Starter Review

March 31, 2015

JunoJumpr kit shown with iPhone 5 (not included). It’s amazing what can be fit into small packages these days. The micro SD memory card in my GoPro camera measures 1cm x 1.5cm and isn’t much thicker than a business card, yet it has a 16GB capacity. Even more remarkable, micro SD cards are available... 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 »
