    AGV AX-8 Dual Evo Helmet Test and Review

    II’ve been wanting to try one of those cool ADV helmets with the neat dirt-bike style brim ever since watching Ewan and Charley ride around the world. I finally got one!

    Single Sided Swingarm Chain Adjustment Tool

    Bikes with single-sided swingarms may not be all that common, but even less common are quality chain adjustment “spanner” tools. Some bikes will come with a chintzy stamped spanner in the tool kit. But some bikes don’t even give you that (Ducati).

  • Nelson Rigg Trail Bag

    Nelson Rigg CL-1060-S Tail/Seat Bag

    Tankbags are amazing but come with a whole batch of problems. First, unless you are extremely careful, and even if you are meticulous, the risk of scratching or damaging your paint is fairly high. Unless you have a metal tank and are able to use a magnetic tank bag, you need to find ways to attach mounting straps and half ...

    Pirelli Angel GT Sport Touring Tire Test & Review

    For years we’ve been saying the same thing; we’ve said it so many times now that it’s starting to sound repetitive, but it’s simply, totally and unequivocally true. Tires just keep getting so much better and better, so much so, that it’s rare for us to be unimpressed with a tire’s performance. Almost every tire we try these days is ...
  • Suzuki V-Strom DL1000 Test Ride and Review

    GenII Suzuki V-Strom DL1000 Test Ride

    If you compare the Suzuki V-Strom to the other 1000+ cc liter bikes available, it seems to fall short. But our experience has been that so many times a spec sheet doesn’t tell the whole story.
