One of the best ways to start the riding season earlier in spring and extend it later into autumn is heated grips, seats, jacket/pants liners and gloves, even socks! As wonderful as heated gear is, most of it doesn’t work unless you’re on the bike or tethered to it by a black electrical wire. Mobile... Read more »

TKD stands for Tough Kevlar Denim. These Kevlar-lined pants are handmade in Australia and feature the world’s first removable protection system for denim jeans.

Imelda Marcos, the former first lady of the Philippines, was infamous for having 3,000 pairs of shoes. I don’t have that many, but I’ll admit it: I have a problem. And not just shoes, but boots. Like a lot of guys, I can’t seem to throw anything out. Even if a pair of boots has been buried in the... Read more »
