Motorcycle gear


My Riding Gear History Like many including myself when I first began riding, I had no issues spending money on a jacket. Back in the day how it ‘looked’ seemed more important to me than how much protection it offered. Textile riding gear was not a big thing and the only company who ‘seemed’ into …

My Marrakesh Introduction Ugh, jackets. I have searched long and hard for a 12 step program for jackets. Bags too. The problem with both is they are legal to purchase, carry and wear be it in public or in the privacy of my own home. One of the only reasons I’m happy with my age-failing …

Fieldsheer Mobile Cooling Long Sleeve Shirt: Versatile Cooling Base Layer A friend recently asked what I had in the pipeline for reviews. When I mentioned the Mobile Cooling T-shirt, he looked at me oddly and said sarcastically, ‘that should be exciting.’ I must admit we here at WBW get to review some pretty cool stuff, …

For me, motorcycle gloves are almost as important as my helmet. In 2001, I was looking at a pair of Held gloves at Helimot’s shop since Helimot sponsored our team. When I asked him the price and he said “Mark they are $450.00.” GULP WTF did he say!? When he saw my expression he simply …

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 …

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 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 …

Raven Rova Falcon Pants The Raven Rova Falcon pants are a textile and leather hybrid that offers a fantastic combination of more unique features than I was expecting. I live in Phoenix, AZ, and I am ALWAYS on the lookout for gear that I believe will combine the airflow I want with the safety and …

Freedom of expression is so incredibly important to the motorcycle community – without it, riders wouldn’t be who they are today.  Vic Bath, a Sikh, Canadian motorcyclist and creative lead at marketing firm Zulu Alpha Kilo, grew up with a father who saw the Harley Davidson motorcycle as a symbol of that freedom – and …

The title of this article has been changed to better suit Klim and In&Motion’s airbag payment methods. Despite the diversity of the moto industry, the one thing that unities the industry is a unified concern for road safety. Klim, a motorcycle gear and apparel company, struck gold when they partnered with In&Motion – a company …

Background Not that many years ago we were getting ready to go on our first extended motorcycle trip and I decided I needed to buy myself some dedicated motorcycle pants. Up to that point, I had been riding in heavy jeans, mostly because that’s all they had for women riders. I went down to my …

Overview Here in the heartland spring has sprung, the snow has melted, and it’s time to get the motorcycle out and ride! It’s also time to check out new gear and what better way to start than the gorgeous red leather Phoenix Jacket from Raven Rova. Background It wasn’t that many years ago that finding …

Background It seems I’ve accumulated quite a number of helmets in the last few years. My husband keeps asking me why I don’t give some of them away but they each serve a specific purpose. For rides to work through rush hour traffic I like to wear my GMAX OF77. It has an LED brake …
