Arden Kysely

Aren’t tank bags about the handiest piece of luggage you can put on a bike? They sit there, out of the way but within immediate reach, holding all the things you need to keep at hand. Dowco’s tank bag from its Fastrax brand’s Backroads collection did just that for me on a three-day, 1,600-mile... Read more »

Throttle Brakes, the Next Best Thing to Cruise Control


Jerry Smith
September 8, 2015

Unless you ride a bike with standard-equipment cruise control, you’ve probably gotten an urgent message from your right wrist at some point during a long trip telling you it’s time to stop and take a break. Throttle brakes are a cheap and easy way to give those aching muscles some relief without... Read more »

AltRider Hemisphere Soft Luggage Pulling the fuses under the seat is the easiest way to disable the ABS on a Suzuki V-Strom 650XT, but I found out you can also do it by crashing in 4th gear. Such was my fate when, cruising down a gravel road in Death Valley, I hit a pit of deep sand and started swapping... Read more »
