    Continental Trail Attack 2 Motorcycle Tire Test

    ADV bikes are all rage these days and for good reason. They provide superb street-bike handling characteristics with a very neutral seating position that is easy on ones back but also allow riders to go off the beaten path and discover what lies beyond those tree’s after the pavement has ended. The problem, however, is choosing the best tire. It ...

    Continental TKC-80 Twinduro Tire Review

    The Continental TKC-80 “Twinduro” was designed and developed as a competition off-road tire for heavy off-road/enduro bikes. It was developed in collaboration with Richard Schalber. In case you aren’t aware of Richard Shalber, he holds multiple world championships in Enduro and Motocross, finished fifth in the Paris-Dakar, has raced virtually every brand of motorcycle and has spent the last several ...

    Carhartt Double-Front Dungarees

    We fully understand the need for protective gear, but the best gear in the world does you little good if you never wear it. Finding good motorcycle riding pants is pretty gosh darn hard. We know; we’ve tried lots and lots of ’em. Seems like they are all too specialized. Most are bulky, cumbersome and just a hassle to deal ...

    Pirelli Diablo Superbike Pro “Red Stripe” Review

    There are basically three types of people who ride on the track. Dedicated racers, be it club racers or the pros, the occasional track day rider and track-day junkies. For the dedicated racer, there are multitudes of race-compound tires available to choose from. Again, for the occasional track-day rider, just about every hypersport tire on the market provides more grip ...

    The Amazing Honda Hawk GT NT650

    The Honda Hawk GT holds a very special place in my heart. It was the first bike that truly captured my attention and my imagination. It was, for the most part, a sales flop in the United States, but the fact that it has turned into a wildly popular cult bike tells me that the design was ahead of its ...

    Bridgestone BT-023 Sport Touring Tire Test

    While most sport-touring tires tend to be “sport” based tires with added features to help them last longer, Bridgestone has always taken the opposite approach by taking a touring tire and modify them to provide the greatest amount of grip. This thinking made the BT-021 one of our favorite long-life tires. While most “sport-touring” tires from other manufacturers would be ...

    Distant Suns by Sam Manicom

    This could easily be Manicom’s best book yet! I was riveted right from the very beginning and enjoyed every minute of the 3-year adventure the book details; containing a little bit of everything, from Africa to South America, a few short break downs and a handful of hospital stays in between. The adventures start with Africa but for only about ...

    Continental Road Attack 2 Sport Touring Tire Review

    Sport Touring riders tend to be highly proficient riders (i.e. we like to go quick), yet we ride on a wide array of surfaces ranging from crumbling asphalt to pristine concrete and we ride in any kind of weather from bitter cold, torrential downpours to sweltering heat. But, at the same time, we Sport Touring riders need the tire to ...

    Grease Ninja Chain Lube Assistant

    Oddly enough, one of the most common products we get sent here at CanyonChasers have something to do with chains and chain maintenance. We never fully realized how much people must hate taking care of their chains. Now, granted, most of these products are so bad and so cumbersome that they rarely make it onto the site, but the most ...

    Skwoosh Gel Seat Pad

    The motorcycle seat usually carries most of the rider’s weight, so it has a significant impact on rider comfort. However, this is an area where motorcycle manufacturers tend to fall short. If you take a test ride, ride mostly around town, or take short day rides, you probably won’t take particular notice of the seat. Motorcycle characteristics such as riding ...
