    Tour Master Ladies LNX Leather Jacket

    This jacket touts that it is “designed, patterned and styled specifically for women” and truly this jacket fulfills its promise! At the beginning of my riding career, there simply was not any women’s gear to choose from and as a result, I was left with wearing the smallest men’s motorcycle gear I could find. With time, the industry has finally ...

    Arai RX-7 Corsair Full Face Helmet Review

    We’ve probably all heard “if you have a $10 head, buy a $10 helmet” – I believe Bell Helmets even used that as their advertising campaign. But the Motorcycle Safety Foundation says that as long as helmet meets DOT standards it’s going to provide the same level of protection regardless of price point. So is there any reason to purchase ...

    Under Asian Skies by Sam Manicom

    Under Asian Skies picks up right where the Into Africa left off; with Manicom’s journey on a container ship with only five other passengers, somewhere in between Africa and Australia. After a stint in Australia and short medical stay in Germany, Manicom returned to re-start his Asian adventure in Bali with his bike ready to roll, a passenger/cost-sharing partner and ...

    Alpinestars SG-1 One-Piece Leather Suit

    Alpinestars SG-1 leather suit ($649 MSRP) is billed as an entry level street motorcycle leather suit and is priced accordingly, but it has the features you’d expect to find on much more expensive suits. 1.2 – 1.4 mm thick leather, removable mesh liner, multiple stitching for tear resistance, armor in the knees, hips, shoulders, elbows and a “back protector compartment” ...

    Tour Master Ladies Trinity Textile Jacket

    Finding quality ladies gear is a lot easier than it used to be. It wasn’t that long ago that the lady CanyonChasers were forced to look for the overly small men’s gear and deal with the frumpy shoulders and an overall bulky feel that did nothing for the feminine form. There are more options today, but many of them seem ...

    Shift-Tech Carbon Fiber Hugger

    Why Pierre Terblanche decided the Multistrada did not need protection for the rear shock is beyond me. Leaving the precious rear suspension component exposed to road cheese and rocks flying off the top of the tire at speed double the bikes forward velocity was a serious oversight. I can only assume it was so overprotective new-bike owners (like myself) would ...

    Dunlop D616 vs Pirelli Sync Motorcycle Tire Comparison

    If you own one of the 17-inch shod quasi-dirt bikes, such as the Triumph Tiger 1050, Buell Ulysses or Ducati Multistrada, you probably want a tire that is a bit more capable of the occasional dirt road. I mean, if you have a bike that looks like it can tackle the occasional dirt road, it’s nice to think that your ...

    Triumph Tiger 1050 Test Ride and Review

    So, back when I bought the Suzuki V-Strom, what I was really after was a tall, comfortable road bike that was fun to ride. I had no delusions of it being a dirt bike. Well, maybe a little delusion…but a couple of dirt rides over some pretty gnarly terrain cured me of that right quick. Yet, the VStrom is a ...

    Into Africa by Sam Manicom

    Into Africa takes off full blast into a crazy motorcycle adventure with nothing more than a short introduction describing Manicom’s decision to learn to ride a motorcycle, before he jumps head-first into riding into the throat of Africa. Within the first couple of pages, he ends up in an accident in Tanzania that leaves Manicom sitting in a jail cell ...
