Let’s get this out of the way now: I’m seated firmly on the retro helmet bandwagon. Visually, they seem more at home on my dome than the likes of most other helmets out there. Take a look at the back wall of any motorcycle gear shop and you’ll see what I mean. 90% or more …

Yikes, here we are, already riding in Fall 2021—although the extended trips and long distance-based adventuring opportunities are destined, it seems, to remain on the longer-term planner for now (c’est la vie). But many enthusiasts in other parts of North America and around the world are in motion, and as they continue to document and …

Leg protection is critical when you’re riding, and regular jeans won’t cut it if you end up in a slide. That’s why every rider needs tough pants that won’t come apart if they hit pavement. This week, Revzilla’s offering 21% off select Iron Workers pants for men and women. Check out these deals below or …

Every day, I celebrate the diversity of the motorcycle community.  Whether a cruise-inclined tourer, a track-lover, or “they’re just in it for the aesthetics”, our community accepts riders for who they are, uniting wise and wacky alike under the umbrella of undying love for the ride. One of the addicting things about riding (I can …

Let’s face it; in a perfect world, we’d have everybody understanding how to get low and lean into a curve (we’d also perhaps have cheaper ARCH Motorcycles and a surplus of race tracks available to scoot top speeds for free, but I digress).

When running errands or short rides, my default is to wear jeans. I don’t like walking around in heavy and hot riding pants. I am all for All The Gear All The Time (ATGATT), but I don’t always put it into practice.  I am hoping the Richa Softshell Mesh WP Pants change that. Over the …

Richa Airstorm WP Jacket: Warm Weather Comfort with a Waterproof Liner I can be a bit of a YouTube junkie when it comes to motorcycles.

The original iASUS EAR3 Amplifier Review, done by Rick and published January 2016 had lots of good information on how to get the best helmet audio (with or without an amplifier of some sort), and how to also protect your hearing—all of which is still applicable today.

REV’IT! Kryptonite 2 GTX Gloves: Aesthetic & Styling REV’IT! is headquartered in Oss Netherlands, a country well known for its love of two-wheel transportation, but not a country that leaps to mind when I think of high fashion or style.

There are plenty of warm-weather short cuff motorcycle gloves out there, but the REV’IT Sand 4 Gloves make a pretty strong case for picking them over the competition.

Despite the love I have for my REV’IT! Arc Air mesh jacket, I soon learned through the month of July that even a “warm weather” jacket could get suffocatingly hot when a heatwave decides to arrive. It was just through sheer timing, then, that REV’IT! asked webBikeWorld if there was anything out of their recent …

As I ride a sport tourer, a 2012 Kawasaki Ninja 650, I have often focused more on the tourer part of the equation.
