Test rides can be a bugger to get a hold of when coming out of restrictions. Sure, you’ve got your eyes set on that beauty of a peanut tank online…but whether or not it’s available to demo at your local dealership is another matter altogether.  In light of this annoyance, Triumph is integrating itself into …

It was a hot July summer evening, and this chikita had just finished her beginner’s motorcycle course. I was stoked, sure…more importantly, I was desperately in need of good gear. I beelined for the nearest local moto dealership, on a mission to find something that fit better than the horror I had MacGyvered for the …

For those of you who were able to squeeze into a theatre in the past couple of weeks, you might have seen the new action movie ‘Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins’. 43% on Rotten Tomatoes…not too bad, but you know that’s not why we’re writing this.  We’re more interested in the beautiful electric machines that …

From the dusty hills and rolling valleys of California comes a motorcycle that, to be honest, would have flown completely over my head (pun intended), had I not checked the morning’s lists. WebBikeWorld, meet THE SPEEDER – the world’s flying motorcycle, the brainchild of JetPack Aviation, and all-around contender for man’s new best friend. Check …

The Right Gearing For Your Hearing Taking the bike out for a long ride is a joy we share with millions of people around the world.

Being relatively new to motorcycling, the idea of special base layers was a bit foreign to me. As a fan of Powersports, I knew that MotoGP and World SBK riders had their base layers to go under their one-piece leathers, and being familiar with the Dakar rally, I knew that multiple layers for riders was …

Introduction With the Summer of 2021 fast approaching (or already here depending on my publish date), I found myself looking for a new hot weather riding jacket.

With countries like America and Canada promising net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, it’s no wonder that more and more motorcycle companies are getting on the energy-efficient bandwagon.

Corndogs, live music, tattoo contests…what’s not to love about a motorcycle rally?

Harley Davidson has given us a sportbike – and not just any sportbike.  World, meet the Sportster® S – a trick in HD’s hat that’s been blessed with the Revolution Max powertrain and, like the Pan America, boasts enough torque in the lower powerband to feed a small family for a week. The reveal came at 10am …

Introduction I will start by saying I am all for All The Gear All The Time (ATGATT). However, I’ll be honest and say that I often wear most of the gear all the time, as I often switch out riding pants for jeans. I am hoping the Gryphon Moto Indy pants change that. The Indy …

Kyle Wyman has had his hand full (pun intended) since he crashed at Road America, sustaining multiple fractures to his left elbow.  Given his new title of King Of The Baggers a scant four weeks after seven shiny titanium screws were introduced to his Olecranon bone (elbow), we’re pretty sure he’s not keen on sitting around. The …

Way down, south of dear Carolina, comes a motorcycle course to Greer, SC.  It’s a bird, it’s a plane – it’s BMW, and they slapped the state with a fully stacked motorcycle course stuffed with the world’s best of the best.  This past Sunday, the BMW Performance Center housed the BMW U.S. Rider Academy – …

Got the itch to put some miles in? Fear not – there’s still a couple of things to do in the country before pockets are emptied into gas tanks, and parking receipts are exchanged for plane tickets.  The Peterson Automotive Museum in Los Angeles has a treat that they have installed for July 3rd – …

A big announcement came from LiveWire today that has given Harley-Davidson a second shot at the EV motorcycle crown – introducing the LiveWire One. Earlier this year, Harley-Davidson announced the LiveWire brand to help give the electric models a chance among ‘non-HD’ folks. It also gives future EV models made by Harley-Davidson a chance, without …

The motorcycling community is made up of millions of riders worldwide. And this community has been built on the foundation of past generations – like most sports, groups, or communities.  Since 1995, Dave Moss Tuning has had one transparent goal, in fact, it’s clearly stated on his website – “Dave Moss has been on a …

If there’s one thing I love, it’s that the motorcycle community is openly accepting of all shapes and sizes – and the Veterans Charity Ride is a key example.

Arcimoto Inc. and Lightning Motorcycles have just made a pact to create the world’s fastest tilting trike – and both companies are stacked to succeed. The collaborative effort is live as of today, with both companies hoping to blast through a few records in the process. I know what you’re thinking.  “Why on earth would I want …

Every riding enthusiast appreciates versatile motorcycle gear. When I reviewed the Alpinestars Andes V3 Drystar Adventure Tourer jacket through the month of April, 2021, at the time the weather was, for Calgary, Alberta, seasonal. Varying between 5 C and 20 C (41 to 68 F), it was perfect weather that the jacket was designed for. …
