I knew from the get-go that wind protection was not a strong suit of my BMW F 800 GS. Earplugs sufficed while I made busy fitting other aftermarket parts. When I finally looked up from my accessorizing, the screen options had multiplied. Touratech’s Desierto 3 stood out from the crowd as a complete... Read more »

If you own and ride an older bike, obtaining upgrades for it can be frustrating. A year ago, I had Race Tech rebuild the fork on my 1976 BMW R75/6 (Rider, June 2013), and experienced a renewed joy in riding it. Not only was the ride improved, but it no longer leaked fork fluid on the front brake disc.... Read more »

Americans, even those of generation Baby Boomer, seem to be changing their lifestyles for the better: No smoking, moderating alcohol intake, and…we even eat our broccoli. Motorcyclists also seem better at safely suiting up, too. More wear helmets, protective jackets and boots. The one lapse is from... Read more »

Held Air n Dry Gloves

February 2, 2015

In many of the best riding areas, “summer” doesn’t always mean dry and sunny all of the time. In California, for example, it’s possible to ride from 90-plus F temperatures in the Central Valley into misty, 65-degree weather on the coast in less than an hour. The Southeast, Midwest and Alps in... Read more »

Kenda K676 RetroActive tires, mounted on a 1974 Kawasaki H2B. Not long ago, options were few and far between when it came to re-skinning your 1970s or ’80s-era motorcycle. With time, more tire manufacturers have begun to provide options to those with older bikes, and it makes sense—there are a great... Read more »

Corbin Vintage Gunfighter Seat for Triumph Bonneville Review

Corbin Vintage Gunfighter Seat for Triumph Bonneville

Jerry Smith
December 30, 2014

A bike like the Triumph Bonneville practically cries out for customizing. My own Bonnie suggests it to me now and then, but I usually ignore its pleas. Still, I have to admit the café-racer look appeals to me and, as long as it didn’t affect the function of the bike, I decided to dip a toe in the... Read more »

Tour Master Trinity Series 3 Women’s Jacket

Bill Stermer
December 30, 2014

While motorcycling remains a primarily male activity, more women are riding their own bikes and as passengers. Still, it’s often difficult to find riding wear that is cut specifically for women, and especially top-line gear at a reasonable price. That’s why I was enthused to find this new Tour Master... Read more »
