Arden Kysely
June 4, 2014

Bar risers are just as handy for the custom or cruiser rider wanting to tailor a motorcycle’s fit as they are for dual-sporters and adventure riders looking to be comfortable while standing up.

These days I tend to favor textile apparel... Read more »

Heidenau K60 Scout Tires

Arden Kysely
May 7, 2014

Choosing a tire for a multi-surface tour isn’t always easy. You want a tread that’s aggressive enough to grip anything you might encounter, yet wears well enough to last the ride. Do you choose one of the street-oriented dually skins and hope for minimal sand and mud along the track? Or do you spoon... Read more »

Aerostich High Tech Cot Review

Aerostich High Tech Cot

Clement Salvadori
May 6, 2014

Sleep is important, especially when traveling, and gone are those days when I could dig a shallow hip-hole, roll up in a five-dollar Navajo blanket and have a pleasant night. Nowadays, I prefer a good mattress on top of box springs—but those are a bit difficult to bungee to the back of a bike. In recent... Read more »

Progressive Suspension 444 Series Shocks

Jerry Smith
May 5, 2014

Motorcycle suspension technology has moved beyond the era when a pair of limp, price-point rear shocks was state-of-the-art, and nobody is happier about that than me. The problem is that now I expect modern suspension performance from every bike I ride, including my 2012 Triumph Bonneville, which came... Read more »

The New Ride Like a Pro DVD

Greg Drevenstedt
April 30, 2014

Since joining the Rider staff in 2008, I’ve attended riding schools on racetracks, on the street and off-road. Every school has taught me valuable lessons on how to ride more safely and proficiently.
