June 26, 2013

The perfect traveling companion for any sport tourer is a versatile tankbag and a set of saddlebags liners. The former sits on the tank and holds extra gloves, a snack, energy drink and your map—or increasingly, a GPS unit and much more. The liner bags fit snugly inside your saddlebags, utilizing much... Read more »

Omni-Cruise Motorcycle Throttle Lock Review

Omni-Cruise Throttle Lock.

Jerry Smith

There’s a difference between twisting a throttle and holding it open for hours on end. The first is part of the fun of riding, and the second can be a real pain. If you want genuine cruise control, start looking at high-buck sport-touring bikes. But if all you’re looking for is some temporary relief... Read more »

A vintage bike is a two-edged sword. On the one hand is the joy of having other riders come over and say, “Nice bike! What year is it?” On the other are the problems associated with vintage electrics, vintage reliability, vintage suspension and anti-stop brakes. My old bike of choice is a 1976 BMW... Read more »

Touratech Motorcycle Suspension Review

Touratech’s hydraulic preload adjustment spans 15mm (vs. the typical 8-10mm) to handle a greater load range.

Adventure-touring motorcycles are often burdened with heavy luggage and accessories, then subjected to a fair amount of abuse when they’re taken to all of those adventurous places. In most cases, the bike’s original-equipment suspension is just barely up to the task; in more extreme instances it... Read more »

HyperPro Motorcycle Shock and Fork Springs Review

HyperPro Motorcycle Shock

Arden Kysely
May 7, 2013

It’s the rare motorcycle that leaves the showroom with stellar suspension, and my 2009 BMW F 800 GS is no exception. The stock male-slider fork is non-adjustable and the rear shock allows fiddling only with spring preload and compression damping. The kicker (literally) is that BMW’s ideal rider weighs... Read more »

Harley-Davidson’s H-D1 Program

I found the two-up seat to be very comfy, but the rear part did not get high points from my passenger.

Clement Salvadori
May 6, 2013

The Street Bob is the least expensive of Harley’s big twins at $12,999, but it and the Sportster 1200 Custom can be ordered with enough options using the HD-1 program to take them in many directions, be it even more custom cruiser, cruiser tourer or something in between. You choose from the factory... Read more »

Arden Kysely
May 3, 2013

Adventure bikes like my BMW F 800 GS roll out of the factory ready to blast into the boonies loaded with camping gear, food and spares—or so you would think. Truth is, they need some accessories to be fully functional. The top items on my list are crash protection for the inevitable rough-country tipovers,... Read more »

High-Tech Bags: Motorcycle Luggage Buyers Guide

Motorcycle Luggage Buyers Guide.

Bill Stermer
April 5, 2013

Some years ago, as part of the seminars I conducted at motorcycle rallies, I described how it was possible to carry many useful items on tour in a small bag affixed to your bike’s fuel tank. There would be a map displayed right there under your snoot in the convenient map pouch, and inside the tankbag... Read more »
