We all carry around a lot of personal stuff these days, often small things that are easily dropped and seem to multiply like tribles—wallets, keys, cell phones, reading glasses, sunglasses, lip balm, sunscreen, garage door openers, etc. Lacking center consoles and sun visors, there just isn’t a good... Read more »

Mark Tuttle
February 28, 2014

BMW offers an amazing riding suit called the Rallye that is the envy of many adventure riders, whether or not they ride a BMW. The design is such that it’s suitable for on- and off-road riding in all kinds of weather, and the styling and construction really are a cut above. Trouble is, together the... Read more »

Book Review: The Essential Guide to Motorcycle Travel (Second Edition)

The Essential Guide to Motorcycle Travel (Second Edition) by Dale Coyner

Clement Salvadori
February 18, 2014

Had I had the benefits of this book back when I took my first real motorcycle trip, I would have been a good deal happier. Here we were, two 17-year-olds tearing around for two months on a pair of used 250s, and I think the closest thing we had to rain-gear was my old army poncho. We didn’t even... Read more »

In our October 2013 issue, we introduced you to Paul Beck, an experienced adventure rider whose 2007 BMW R 1200 GS served as a project bike (Über-Adventure Upgrade). In addition to kitting out Paul’s bike, we kitted out his body. Since he’s a big guy (6-foot, 4-inches and 300-plus pounds), we sought... Read more »

NoNoise Motorsport Hearing Protectors Review

NoNoise Motorsport Hearing Protectors

Greg Drevenstedt
January 31, 2014

Just as I’ve always worn a full-face helmet to protect my entire head, I’ve always worn earplugs to protect my ears from the potential damage caused by wind noise. Even with a windscreen, a fairing and a full-face helmet, wind noise can be unpleasantly loud at highway speeds. Whether from attending... Read more »

No matter what time of year, it’s tough for motorcyclists to stand out in traffic. As winter closes in, daylight hours diminish and overcast skies become common, it’s even harder to be seen. Hi-viz apparel and riding gear is the first line of defense against careless and inattentive drivers, and... Read more »

Bunkhouse Queen Camping Trailer The choices motorcyclists have among on-the-road lodgings differ as much as their choices in motorcycles. Many prefer comfort and choose a motel or bed-and-breakfast; others opt for rustic pleasure and pitch a tent in some idyllic setting. We recently evaluated a product... Read more »

Dynaplug Pro Tubeless Tire Repair Kit Few motorcycle breakdowns are as common or as irritating as a flat tire. Even if you’re packing a plug kit, too often the glue has hardened from disuse and you’re still dead in the water. The beauty of the Dynaplug Pro Tubeless Repair Kit is that it can plug... Read more »

Vertix Raptor

Ken Aiken
November 26, 2013

The Raptor-i from Vertix does all that’s expected of a top-quality Bluetooth helmet communication system, and a bit more. The lightweight control unit fits onto the side of a helmet using a very strong type of hook-and-loop fastener that is claimed to be secure up to 130 mph. The control unit has four... Read more »
