Nelson-Rigg Sport Tank Bag and Expandable Sport Tail Pack.

Clement Salvadori
April 3, 2014

Nelson-Rigg has been making soft touring luggage for more than 30 years, so it pretty much has the art of making tankbags, seatbags, saddlebags, etc., figured out. Including ease of use. Take its CL-1025 Sport Tank Bag. It is about a foot long and 9 inches wide, with an average height of 6 inches, for... Read more »

National Cycle Plexifairing GT

Jerry Smith
April 2, 2014

Split personalities are nothing new to motorcyclists. Mild-mannered drones by day, toiling away at school or in the office or at the job site, then, as soon as the whistle blows at the end of the day, we turn into two-wheel adventurers. Your bike can reflect that shift in mood, too, with a full-coverage... Read more »

Topcase motoPocket.

Mark Tuttle
March 3, 2014

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 »

Greg Drevenstedt
February 3, 2014

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 »

2013 Hi-Visibility Buyers Guide

Jerry Smith
January 3, 2014

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 »
