    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 ...

    Continental Sport Attack 3 Review

    In order to keep up with the rapid pace of tire development, Continental has just wrapped up three and a half years of work on their newest hypersport tire; the Sport Attack 3.

    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. We’ve ridden bikes that spec out at the top of the heap but were dreary to ride, and other bikes that don’t spec out ...

    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.

    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 ...
  • Ducati 848 Superbike Pirelli Red Stripe Race Track

    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 ...
