Harley-Davidson Genuine MotorClothes Hi-Vis Rain Suit

Scott A. Williams
September 3, 2013

Riders need to stand out, especially when visibility is reduced—and stand out you will in a Harley-Davidson Genuine MotorClothes Hi-Vis Rain Suit. It is available in orange or yellow, although the orange somehow seems a better complement to the huge, reflective Harley logo across the back. There’s... Read more »

Continental TrailAttack 2 Motorcycle Tires Review

ContiTrailAttack 2 Tires

Mark Tuttle
August 10, 2013

Adventure-touring riders are faced with a potentially bewildering variety of tires for their bikes from which to choose. Fortunately, most of us have a pretty good idea how much off-road riding we actually do with these versatile but large and heavy motorcycles, and can use that as our guide. Serious... Read more »

Bill Mayer Saddles Custom Motorcycle Seat for Triumph Bonneville Review

Bill Mayer Saddles Custom Motorcycle Seat for Triumph Bonneville.

Jerry Smith
August 6, 2013

I’m at that age where the things I enjoyed when I was younger exert an irresistible pull on me. One result of this is that I bought a 2012 Triumph Bonneville earlier this year. The bike’s styling drew me to it, and its performance and handling reeled me in. But one part of the classic experience... Read more »

Racer Limes Gloves Review

Racer Limes are high-quality goat and cow leather gloves designed for sport riding in mild to hot weather.

Greg Drevenstedt
July 29, 2013

First things first. The name of these gloves, Limes, is pronounced lee-mas, not like the fruit. And second, yes, they also come in black only. Even though the white-black color scheme is a bit flashy for me, sliding the Racer Limes gloves onto my hands makes me forget all about such vanity. Racer Gloves... Read more »

Deep Lube 2

Ken Aiken
July 26, 2013

It’s easy to excited by this product—if you’re a mechanic. Compared to the familiar product in the blue can, Deep Lube 2 has better penetration and far greater lubrication properties. Furthermore, it contains no Teflon, silicon, graphite, fluorocarbons, or turpentine, which makes it suitable for... Read more »

Book Review: Motorcycle Journeys Through New England, Fourth Edition

New-England-cover

Clement Salvadori
July 19, 2013

I got back from a ten-day trip to New England and found a copy of Ken Aiken’s book in the mail. Dang! I wish I had brought it with me! I would have made some deviations in my brief six-state ride. Ken knows his territory well. Not that I’m a stranger to New England. I grew up there, perfected my... Read more »

Wunderlich Symmetrical Luggage Kit BMW R 1200 GS Review

Hepco & Becker Xplorer 40-liter side cases and 45-liter top case look the part on the R 1200 GS.

Mark Tuttle
July 9, 2013

BMW’s R 1200 GS is almost ideal for extended solo trips. For two-up riding, however, the factory’s expanding Vario luggage option doesn’t quite cut it, particularly if you’re camping. Space is robbed from the left bag by the bike’s upswept muffler so that, even fully expanded, the saddlebags... Read more »

Olympia Moto Sports Renegade Jacket and Pants

Greg Drevenstedt
July 8, 2013

When it’s hot, it’s hot. No point in quibbling over heat vs. humidity or the effects of global warming. All that matters is getting some relief. That’s where Olympia Moto Sports’ Mesh Tech line of apparel comes in, which includes updated versions of its popular Airglide two-piece and Avenger... Read more »

Qwi Nerve Protector Motorcycle Gloves Review

Full Finger Spandex Top Gloves

James Parchman
July 8, 2013

Most motorcyclists have, at random times and for unexplained reasons, experienced periods of hand numbness while riding. We usually shake it out and carry on. This product is designed to alleviate the tingling that can disrupt and bring an early end to an otherwise enjoyable riding day. Having spent... Read more »
