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 2 Women’s Motorcycle Jacket Review

Tour Master Trinity Series 3 Women’s Jacket

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 »

Behind closed doors. This is where BMW apparel is first conceived. BMW is stepping up the presence of its riding apparel and helmets with an extensive lineup for 2015.

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 Aluminum tire plug tool is that it can plug... Read more »

Race Tech Gold Valve Cartridge Emulators Review

Race Tech Gold Valve Cartridge Emulators

November 6, 2014

If motorcycles could be ordered like cars, with a long list of options and trim packages to choose from, odds are some current equipment would all but disappear from the motorcycling scene. Damper-rod forks, for example, have long since been obsoleted by cartridge forks, and yet survive in many bikes... Read more »

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.

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

Jerry Smith
September 5, 2014

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 »
