• Sam Manicom Into Africa

    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 ...
  • Continental Sport Attack Z1000 Mountain Road Canyon

    Continental Sport Attack Tire Review

    We’ve never tried to hide the fact that we believe the Continental Road Attacks to be the best road tire on the market today, so when Conti released the Sport Attack in the spring of 2006 we were anxious to get our hands on a set. We must not have been the only ones amped to give them a run, ...
  • Triumph Speed Triple Michelin Pilot Power Racetrack

    Michelin Pilot Power Motorcycle Tire Review

    I was serving overseas when the move Twister, starring Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton came to theaters and as I prepared to come home it was the movie everyone was talking about.  “amazing special effects” and “compelling characters” and “engrossing plot-line” were all used to describe the film.  I couldn’t wait!  I wasn’t back in the U.S. of A. for ...
  • Ventura Luggage Rack on Ducati Multistrada

    Ventura Luggage Rack System

    We were so impressed with the Ventura Rack the first time, that we picked up more than one set for our own bikes. On the Ducati, the mounting system is significantly easier than on the Triumph, but the installation could vary significantly based on the type of motorcycle you are attaching it to. Plus Ventura makes racks for just about ...
  • Scorpion EXO-700 Full Face Helmet

    Scorpion EXO-700 Full Face Motorcycle Helmet

    In the spring of 2005, I went to an open house at my local dealer to have my ECU remapped, and it turned out to be an open house day. There were vendors there pushing new products, bikes to ride, free food and a fun atmosphere. I dropped the bike off to the service department and decided I was going ...
  • Glen Heggstad

    Two Wheels Through Terror by Glen Heggstad

    While the thought of riding through South America sounds like great fun, I can’t imagine wanting to do it solo. And while I’ve heard Columbia is a strikingly beautiful country, I can’t imagine wanting to ride a motorcycle through the tumultuous nation. However, riding solo through South America and even Columbia is exactly what moto nut Glen Heggstad set out ...
  • Army Green SV650 Dunlop Sportmax Tire

    Dunlop Qualifier Hypersport Motorcycle Tire Review

    The Dunlop Qualifier was never really on my list of tires to have. I’ve run several Dunlop sport tires of yesteryear and never really felt much love for them. I always felt like the profile was too tippy and the wear too rapid and the front tire too prone to cupping to really fall in love with the Dunlop. And ...
  • Lois Pryce Lois on the Loose

    Lois on the Loose by Lois Pryce

    We must confess that had we seen this book sitting on the shelves, we probably wouldn’t have given it a second look. It’s cheesy, cartoon cactus back-dropping a photo-chopped outline of a gal wearing a BSA t-shirt astride a 225cc Serow does not scream “pick me up and read me”. (Not that we have any kind of aversion to attractive ...
  • Long Way Round Ewan McGregor Charley Borman

    Long Way Round | Ewan McGregor & Charley Boorman

    After reading the book, Long Way Round, documenting Ewan McGregor and Charlie Borman’s global circumnavigation, we here at corporate CanyonChasers [the wife and I] decided that we really wanted to see the television program. When Ewan and Charlie (we feel we’ve gotten to know them so well that we’re now on a first name basis)When Ewan and Charlie did their three ...
