Rider Magazine Staff
October 13, 2014

With the 2014 riding season drawing to a close and the holidays approaching, now is the perfect time to take stock of your motorcycle gear and decide what needs to be replaced. Has your favorite riding jacket mysteriously shrunk, or have its seams or zippers blown out? Is your helmet showing its age,... Read more »

Aerostich Darien Motorcycle Riding Suit Review

Aerostich Darien Motorcycle Riding Suit

Clement Salvadori
October 3, 2014

When I get a riding suit I look for protection against the elements, such as cold, heat and rain, but its primary purpose needs to be protection against injury during an accident. There are some awfully posh outfits that look great, but should I be tumbling down the road at 60 mph, perhaps I am less... Read more »

Legal Speeding H.A.R.D. System Review

Legal Speeding H.A.R.D. System

A lot of the things that can mess up a ride are easy to spot before they become a problem, like distracted drivers and poor road conditions. But one hazard—police radar—is usually impossible to see until it’s too late. Even with a radar detector, the unit’s warning light and audible alert compete... Read more »

Olympia Moto Sports MotoQuest Guide Suit Review

Olympia Moto Sports MotoQuest Guide Suit: The rainsuit can be worn over the jacket/pants as shown, or underneath.

September 5, 2014

For four years, I wore Olympia Moto Sport’s X Moto jacket and pants on countless adventure rides (Rider, August 2010 and on ridermagazine.com). The extremely versatile, durable gear held up well over thousands of rough-n-tumble miles, close encounters with rocks, cacti and terra firma, and a wide range... Read more »

Air Hawk Comfort Seating System Review

Air Hawk Comfort Seating System Seats are perhaps the most replaced factory parts in the riding world. I have replaced a few myself. There must be a better way! One of my bikes has a stock seat that is “pretty” comfortable for 90 percent of my riding miles. It’s not enough of a butt pain to replace,... Read more »

Motorcycle Camping the Lazy…Er, Easy Way

Adventure touring bikes camping

Mark Tuttle
August 6, 2014

Adventure touring bikes can take you into some pretty remote places, but on a busy motorcycle comparison test we look for a lazy man’s campsite with running water, toilets and a picnic table, perhaps even a camp store. Motorcycle camping is an absolute blast, and the cost savings over hoteling can... Read more »

Roadhouse Motorcycle Seats Review

Roadhouse Seats

August 5, 2014

The custom leather rider and passenger seats on my BMW R 1150 RT were built by a popular saddle maker years ago. It was a fine combination that worked well for a long time, but then I needed a replacement. Roadhouse Seats in Las Vegas offers an intriguing way to upgrade seats for most cruisers and touring... Read more »

Clearwater Voltage Sentry Review

Clearwater Voltage Sentry

Erik Munck
July 31, 2014

Clearwater Voltage Sentry No-maintenance batteries will start their die-off process the moment they are put into service. Often they will go from fully functioning to dead with little or no warning. Replacement is the only remedy, but that won’t help you much if you’re stuck in the middle... Read more »

Happy Trails SU Rack and Teton Clif-Cut Panniers for Triumph Bonneville

Happy Trails Teton Clif-Cut Panniers

Jerry Smith
July 9, 2014

You don’t have to ride an adventure bike around the world to appreciate sturdy metal panniers, nor does the bike you ride need knobbies and a sky-high seat to take you on an adventure. Triumph’s street-going twins earned their adventure merit badge at the hands of well-known riders like Ted Simon,... Read more »

Joker Machine Motorcycle Ignition Switch Relocation Bracket for Triumph Twins

Joker Machine Ignition Switch Relocation Bracket for Triumph Twins

Jerry Smith
July 8, 2014

I love my 2012 Bonneville, don’t get me wrong. It’s just that some things about it drive me crazy, like the absence of a toolkit or a place to put one, the bolt-on seat that requires a hex key to remove, and the ignition switch’s location in the left headlight bracket. That last irritation became... Read more »
