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 »

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.

Motorcycling paradise, with the right tires...

November 9, 2010

Therm-a-Rest NeoAir I’m always looking for the lightest gear I can find for motorcycle camping, and if it comes in a small package, so much the better. For a camp bed, nothing is as light or packs as small as an air mattress. And in the newly competitive arena of air beds, the NeoAir from Therm-a-Rest... Read more »

Alt Rider Potentiometer Guard

Rider Magazine
October 26, 2010

The big ol’ BMW R 1200 GS is certainly a tuff-nuff adventure-touring bike when your adventures are paved or mostly paved, and can even handle 75% of the places you’re likely to ride a dirt bike, given you slow down some. Until you drop it, that is. You don’t have to crash–just drop it. A stick-your-foot-out-and-find-air... Read more »

[This Park-n-Move Motorcycle Cruiser Stand Review was originally published in the July 2009 issue of Rider magazine] Park-n-Move Cruiser Stand All of my bikes sit on centerstands except my American V-twin.

Stop & Go Mini-Air Compressor

Greg Drevenstedt
September 20, 2010

Just as carrying an umbrella or rain gear has a way of warding off inclement weather, packing tools and a patch kit seems to help prevent the inconvenience of roadside repairs. Or it could just be that today’s motorcycles are reliable and tires are durable. Nonetheless, whether you uphold the Boy Scouts’... Read more »

Arden Kysely
August 20, 2010

One thing a helmet cam has to be is simple to use, and the ContourHD1080p has that down.
