Gaerne G-Midland Motorcycle Boots Review

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 »

Dainese Long Range D-WP Boots Review

Dainese Long Range D-WP Boots

Greg Drevenstedt
February 27, 2014

These days, motorcycle boots are as specialized as motorcycles themselves, with different styles for sport/track riding, touring, dual-sport/adventure riding, full-on motocross and all points in between. A high-quality pair of waterproof touring boots offer the most versatility, as I’ve found with... Read more »

Suiting Up for Road or Trail—Adventure Motorcycle Gear

Paul Beck at Hadley Butte

Greg Drevenstedt
February 3, 2014

In our October 2013 issue, we introduced you to Paul Beck, an experienced adventure rider whose 2007 BMW R 1200 GS served as a project bike (Über-Adventure Upgrade). In addition to kitting out Paul’s bike, we kitted out his body. Since he’s a big guy (6-foot, 4-inches and 300-plus pounds), we sought... Read more »

Metzeler Karoo 3 Motorcycle Tires Review

Metzeler Karoo 3 Motorcycle Tires

Greg Drevenstedt
February 3, 2014

Before taking on the Oregon Backcountry Discovery Route, we spooned Metzeler Karoo 3 tires on our 2014 BMW F 800 GS Adventure test bike and Paul Beck’s 2007 BMW R 1200 GS project bike (Rider, October 2013). Route 5 of the ORBDR is a 750-mile off-road track through central Oregon, from California to... Read more »

NoNoise Motorsport Hearing Protectors Review

NoNoise Motorsport Hearing Protectors

Greg Drevenstedt
January 31, 2014

Just as I’ve always worn a full-face helmet to protect my entire head, I’ve always worn earplugs to protect my ears from the potential damage caused by wind noise. Even with a windscreen, a fairing and a full-face helmet, wind noise can be unpleasantly loud at highway speeds. Whether from attending... Read more »

Joe Rocket Speedway Motorcycle Jacket Review

Joe Rocket Speedway Jacket

Mike Vaughan
January 30, 2014

“No skulls, no chains, no pointless noise,” is how Joe Rocket describes its Speedway jacket, and that’s a pretty good description. This is a well made, 1.2mm, drum-dyed, classic black leather motorcycle jacket. The only nods to decor are the optional red or ivory stripes that run along the sleeves... Read more »
