Melissa Holbrook Pierson and John Ryan

Greg Drevenstedt
October 4, 2011

In his 1929 short story, Chains, Hungarian author Frigyes Karinthy hatched the idea of six degrees of separation, whereby every person on earth could be connected to every other person on earth through a “friend of a friend” chain with six or fewer links. Nearly seven decades later, in 1997, American... Read more »

Dunlop Roadsmart Sport-Touring Tires Review

Eric Trow
July 8, 2011

The Buell is a filthy mess. But the Dunlop Roadsmart tires shine. [This Dunlop Roadsmart Sport-Touring Tires Review was originally published in Rider magazine] About three years ago the folks at Dunlop Motorcycle Tires took on the seemingly impossible challenge to develop a tire that would meet the... Read more »

Snider’s Paint Guard

Joe Michaud
January 28, 2011

Motorcycle bodywork, especially fuel tanks and color-matched luggage, is prone to getting scratched. We climb on and off motorcycles hastily, we bump into them, and, of course, there’s the occasional not-my-fault tip over. The realities of motorcycle ownership being what they are, I decided to give Snider’s... Read more »

Kaoko Cruise Control

Arden Kysely
January 24, 2011

In 1975 I bought a new Honda CB400-Four and rode it to Chicago from southern California, pretty much as fast as I could. The trip included several 500-mile days between free lodgings with relatives, and a butt-busting 750-mile finale. The little Honda ran like a top, but hanging on to the low handlebar... Read more »

Wolfman Expedition Dry Duffel Bag

January 11, 2011

In need of a catch-all bag for a ride-and-camp to eastern Oregon last summer, I picked out the Dry Duffel from Wolfman’s Expedition Dry Line collection. I was impressed by the heft of the bag just lifting it out of the box. Turns our that Wolfman doesn’t mess around with flimsy fabrics for these... Read more »

SPOT Satellite Personal Tracker Review

SPOT Satellite Personal Tracker

Greg Drevenstedt
December 31, 2010

Paul was the Ennis Del Mar to my Jack Twist as we rode our trusty steeds up to Brokeback (Sawmill) Mountain. His BMW, my KTM and our unbridled bromance on the trail. We stopped occasionally to send “all OK” messages via satellite, to take happy snaps and to take in the grand ridgeline views under... Read more »

DVD Review: The Ride: Alaska to Patagonia

Rider Magazine
December 28, 2010

Oh, the perils of technology. Way back in April, the folks at GlobeBusters, a U.K.-based motorcycle tour company, sent me a copy of The Ride: Alaska to Patagonia on DVD for a review. Founded in 2002 by world-record holders Kevin and Julia Sanders, GlobeBusters specializes in extensive, exotic adventure... Read more »

DVD Review: Hard Miles: The True Story of the 2007 Iron Butt Rally

Jerry Smith
December 15, 2010

It can’t have been easy to make a video of an event like the Iron Butt Rally, which has been described as an 11-day, 11,000-mile, cross-country scavenger hunt. There’s very little of what you could call “action” during the course of the rally, unless your adrenaline gets pumping watching people... Read more »

Icon Airframe Helmet Review

Rider Magazine
December 6, 2010

[This Icon Airframe Helmet review was originally published in Rider magazine] I found a good way to see how well the venting system on my Icon Airframe helmet really works: Hair was still wet from the shower, vents were open and off to work I went in 47 degrees. Twenty-five miles later when I arrived... Read more »

Bridgestone Battlax BT-023 Sport-Touring Tires

Rider Magazine
November 23, 2010

Motorcycling paradise, with the right tires... Following the introduction of the new Bridgestone BT-023 sport-touring tire line in Japan and my factory tour and tire review from that trip (Rider, August 2010 issue), for a real-world follow-up I sent two pair of BT-023s to my buddies Dick and Bryar,... Read more »
