TKD Motorcycle Jeans Review

TKD Jeans

Ken Aiken
April 3, 2013

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. How do they compare with other riding jeans that are on the market? Exceptionally well, it turns out. TKD jeans first caught my attention... Read more »

Adaptiv Technologies Glowrider Jacket

It’s wonderful to be seen on a motorcycle—especially at night. The Glowrider Jacket goes beyond passive reflective material to make riders more visible in low-light situations. Wearing gear with strips of highly reflective material is critically important, but Adpativ Technologies takes this one... Read more »

Aerostich Falstaff Jacket and Pants

Aerostich has been around for more than 30 years and is definitely an innovator. Back in 1986, I tested its two-piece Roadcrafter suit, which was a very forward-thinking design made of Gore-Tex and Cordura nylon that is still being made. Recently, the company has gone retro-innovation with a Falstaff... Read more »

Wearing boots on a bike is a no-brainer, but there are times you don’t want a few pounds of leather and rubber hanging from each hoof. Like when you want to tootle into town, then take in the scene on foot. OK, you could ride in your favorite low tops and sacrifice your feet in a get-off, but you’re... Read more »

Waterproof, textile riding jackets and pants are convenient. Rather than having to don a rainsuit, you can just keep going when the sunshine liquefies. Two approaches are generally used to make a textile garment fend off water. In pricier ones the shell is often a breathable, abrasion- and water-resistant... Read more »

Alpinestars Apex Drystar Gloves Review

December 21, 2012

Winter is upon us, and if we all survive today’s Mayan-predicted apocalypse, we’ve got three long months of cold weather ahead of us. Some of you may think Southern California doesn’t get cold, but with lots of mountains in the area, even if the weather is mild near sea level it can get really... Read more »

Tourmaster Transition 3 Motorcycle Jacket Review

Clement Salvadori

An all-purpose, multi-season motorcycle jacket has a near-impossible list of requirements to fulfill. It needs to keep you warm when it’s cold, cool when it’s hot, dry when it rains, protect you in case of an accident, and be comfortable…after all, you could be wearing that jacket for many hours... Read more »

We’re all aware that the economy has been in the tank for several years, and the result is that many of us are being much more careful with our money. We want to stretch it, to get good value for every precious dollar, and of course we want to take advantage of the fuel economy available from our motorcycles... Read more »

Silver Eagle Outfitters Kula-XD Cooling Vest Review

The Silver Eagle Kula-XD Cooling Vest is worn over a base layer shirt and under a jacket.

August 9, 2012

Vests aren’t cool, at least not in a sartorial sense. They haven’t been since the days of Saturday Night Fever. (Recall that soon after the disco craze, John Travolta’s career slipped into a coma, only to be revived 15 years later with Pulp Fiction, and Vincent Vega wouldn’t be caught dead in... Read more »

Alpinestars Tech Performance Underwear and Touring Summer Socks Review

Alpinestars Summer Performance Tech Short Sleeve Top

Greg Drevenstedt
July 26, 2012

Riding in the summer is great, with long days and a few ready-made three-day weekends that encourage us to pile on the miles. But summer riding can also be physically demanding, with our bodies sometimes exposed to the extremes of heat and humidity, or perhaps tropical storms or monsoon rains. Many riders... Read more »
