The Alpinestars Air Street Vest is no different. However, right now you can get this vest with state-of-the-art, race-proven airbag technology for $150 off. That works …

Icon Airflite Inky Helmet side view with FliteShield down and Drop Screen up

Some First Impressions I was really looking forward to testing out the Airflite Inky from ICON, and had it out of the box and ready for a test ride as soon as it arrived. I took a short ride on city streets to get the feel of the helmet, learn to locate the controls for …

SIDI REX BOOTS HEEL AND SOLE VIEW

Some First Impressions In all honesty, I was wondering if I had requested something that was going to be far beyond my level of appreciation for riding footwear. I had researched the SIDI line for a best-of article and was super impressed by the Tecno-3 Push Closure System and the ability to replace many parts …

Sena Prism Tube WiFi Action Camera

Introduction Years ago, GoPro essentially created the action camera market by offering small and lightweight devices that could take a beating and deliver good quality video. Since that time, many other players have stepped into the “action camera” arena including Sony, Garmin, and others. A large majority of action cameras followed GoPro’s lead and designed …

Pullstart Racing League

Pullstart Racing League’s Inaugural Race The rider to my right leaned toward me and said over the sound of the engines, “Let’s not kill each other today. Okay?” I nodded. The three of us pulled up a little closer to the starting line of the track outlined in cones behind Duke’s Indy—a honky-tonk bar on …

REV'IT Bastille Gloves

My Glove Experience Everyone that knows me understands that I have a mild glove fetish. At one time I had over 20 pairs of motorcycle gloves, including a pair of fingerless gloves I don’t recall ever wearing.

Halley Helmet Stand

I gotta say, I didn’t think that when I sat down to write this review that the angle I’d take would be one of sex appeal and beauty. Yet, here I am about to write exactly that… about helmet stands, of all things. Disclosure: Halley sent me their helmet stands at no cost for the …

Nolan N100-5 helmet with N-Com B901L installed.

My first helmet back in 1987 was a bright yellow Nolan dirt bike offering. Maybe some of you reading this had the same one too? It left an impression on me, yet for some reason, I’ve never worn another Nolan product until today. I’ve been missing out! This Italian brand has been building high quality, …

Motorcycle helmet

Adding a Couple More Years Helmet laws are a controversial topic in many states.

helmet press

You Might Be Surprised At the Results Crushing a motorcycle helmet with a hydraulic press isn’t the most scientific test of a helmet. That said, it does demonstrate the weak points of a helmet when that helmet is put under extreme amounts of pressure. The team over at the Hydraulic Press Channel on YouTube recently …

Triumph 1000

Not Your Typical Bike for the Race I don’t cover many motorcycle competitions, but this story is too good not to share. Apparently, Ernie Vigil took fifth out of 13 contestants at the Mexican 1000 Rally on a Triumph Scrambler 1200. The Triumph Scrambler isn’t the first bike I or many others would have chosen. …
