Nelson-Rigg Sport Tank Bag and Expandable Sport Tail Pack.

Clement Salvadori
April 3, 2014

Nelson-Rigg has been making soft touring luggage for more than 30 years, so it pretty much has the art of making tankbags, seatbags, saddlebags, etc., figured out. Including ease of use. Take its CL-1025 Sport Tank Bag. It is about a foot long and 9 inches wide, with an average height of 6 inches, for... Read more »

National Cycle Plexifairing GT Windscreen Review

National Cycle Plexifairing GT

Jerry Smith
April 2, 2014

Split personalities are nothing new to motorcyclists. Mild-mannered drones by day, toiling away at school or in the office or at the job site, then, as soon as the whistle blows at the end of the day, we turn into two-wheel adventurers. Your bike can reflect that shift in mood, too, with a full-coverage... Read more »

With the performance, technology and comfort of today’s adventure touring motorcycles, one bike really can do it all. Load up the panniers and trunk with a week’s worth of gear, then head off on a two-up tour with your spouse. Spoon on a set of knobbies, pack the camping gear and head into the national... Read more »

The Essential Guide to Motorcycle Travel, 2nd Edition – Book Review

Essential Guide to Motorcycle Travel, 2nd edition

Clement Salvadori
March 11, 2014

Had I had the benefits of Dale Conyer’s book, The Essential Guide to Motorcycle Travel, back when I took my first real motorcycle trip, I would have been a good deal happier. There we were, two 17-year-olds tearing around for two months on a pair of used 250s, and I think the closest thing we had to... Read more »

Gaerne G-Midland Boots

Greg Drevenstedt
March 5, 2014

World renowned for its history, art, food and wine, Italy is also a motorcycle-crazy country that’s home to some of the most revered riding destinations (Alps, Dolomites), motorcycle manufacturers (Ducati, Moto Guzzi), racers (Rossi, Agostini) and makers of apparel (Alpinestars, Dainese), helmets (AGV,... Read more »

Dunlop Trailmax TR91 Motorcycle Tires Review

Dunlop Trailmax TR91 Tires-Front Tire

Dexter Ford
March 4, 2014

One of the great things about getting older is that things I knew—or at least should have known—decades ago are now amazing new discoveries. Here’s my latest brainstorm. New, modern tires are better than old, worn-out ones. My 2009 Suzuki DL650 V-Strom came stock with Bridgestone Trail Wings, which... Read more »

motoPockets Review

Topcase motoPocket.

Mark Tuttle
March 3, 2014

We all carry around a lot of personal stuff these days, often small things that are easily dropped and seem to multiply like tribles—wallets, keys, cell phones, reading glasses, sunglasses, lip balm, sunscreen, garage door openers, etc. Lacking center consoles and sun visors, there just isn’t a good... Read more »

BMW GS Dry Suit Review

BMW GS Dry Suit

Mark Tuttle
February 28, 2014

BMW offers an amazing riding suit called the Rallye that is the envy of many adventure riders, whether or not they ride a BMW. The design is such that it’s suitable for on- and off-road riding in all kinds of weather, and the styling and construction really are a cut above. Trouble is, together the... Read more »

Bushtec Quantum Sport Trailer Review

Bushtec Quantum Sport Trailer

James Parchman
February 28, 2014

Bushtec is a name you’re probably familiar with. It was the first example of a “big wheel” style of motorcycle trailer, invented in 1974 by Bill Bushling for a friend who was unable to find a commercial model to his liking. Word of mouth kept Bill busy producing trailers at his little workshop... Read more »
