It comes with a calibration compliance certificate that certifies the wrench to MIL STD 45662A and ANSI/NCSL Z540-1-1994 with accuracy traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology. It’s accurate to ±1% from 20% to 100% of its capacity in either direction.  One percent calculates to plus or minus 0.25 ft/lbs. at its maximum …

BMW Motorcycle Underwear Review Comfortable, breathable and seems to work as advertised. I’ve had mixed feelings on this motorcycle underwear thing. And that goes double when it comes to motorcycle underwear for summer. Sure, the pioneers in the Old West wore Long Johns under their wool bloomers…but what did they know from Coolmax? I mean …

Motorcycle Tire Air Pump The search for the perfect motorcycle tire air pump continues.  Our goal?  To find a motorcycle tire air pump that has these characteristics: small, light weight, reliable, easy to stow on the motorcycle and easy to use. The correct tire pressure is crucial to the safe operation of a motorcycle, but many …

Holofiber Motorcycle Underwear Review Holofiber is claimed to “modify the spectrum of visible and invisible light, interacting with certain wavelengths, and altering them into energy. When Holofiber is worn as clothing, or placed near a person (in a bed sheet or pillowcase) it transmits the altered energy to the body”. Hard to prove, but we …

River Road Balaclava Review Editor’s Note:  A balaclava (aka balaclava helmet) is defined as “a cap that is close-fitting and woolen and covers all of the head but the face.” I did some research to try and find the origin of the word, but to no avail.  However, I did come across some interesting British …

Heartech Earplugs – Ear Plugs: SilentEar, QuietEar, FliteMate Earplugs I’m a big believer in wearing earplugs.  I lost part of my hearing as a result of what could basically be called ignorance on my part.  Plenty of rock concerts in the ’60’s and ’70’s, working in a really loud machine shop and riding motorcycles! But …

Polar-Optics Motorcycle Helmet Face Shield Lens  There are probably too many less-than-satisfactory methods to get some sun protection while riding.  You could choose a tinted replacement helmet visor, but they can be expensive, and it’s usually a pain to remove the clear visor and replace it with the tinted one (or vice versa) when the sun plays fickle.And …

REV’IT! 2014 Fall/Winter Clothing Preview I made a quick stop at REV’IT! USA headquarters last week to check out the Fall/Winter 2014 lineup. Yes, you read that right! It’s time for winter clothing. Hard to believe, now that summer has just begun its hot and moist grip on most of us in the northern hemisphere. …

LED Headlamp Flashlight My garage has three big windows and a combination lighting scheme that includes overhead incandescent, fluorescent and halogen lamps.  But I never seem to have enough light when I’m working on a bike. Now it could be because I’m getting old and my eyesight isn’t quite as sharp as it was, say, 20 …

Quick Anchor Motorcycle Trailer Tie Down I found an advertisement for the new Quick Anchor “movable trailer tie down” in a print magazine and it looked intriguing, so I figured we’d give them a try. The Quick Anchor is cut from a flat sheet of 1/4″ plate. I assume that the material is stainless steel. …

Motorcycle Tank Pad I visited the Motografix motorcycle tank pad booth at the recent motorcycle Dealer Expo this spring in Indianapolis.  The Dealer Expo is the single largest show for U.S. motorcycle dealers to see new products, clothing and accessories and to place their orders for the big spring rush. Motografix specializes in motorcycle tank …

A Motorcycle Tour in France “Give us a kiss – you’re in France now!” The first words John Eggleton spoke to me were typical of the relaxed, fun way he and his wife Jeanette run Bike Normandy. From the moment I rode off the ferry and into the French sunshine, I knew I was in …

Raising the fork tubes in the triple clamp is a simple adjustment that can help make a motorcycle respond faster to steering input and can lower the motorcycle. This trick won’t be found in your owner’s manual, because the manufacturers spend a lot of time working out the best compromise for the motorcycle’s suspension, and …

Installing Progressive Fork Springs on a BMW R65 After installing the Progressive Suspension 420-Series rear shock absorber on our 1986 BMW R65, we wanted to also revitalize the front end with a set of Progressive Fork Springs. The new-found control at the rear accentuated the front end’s slightly vague feeling, so we checked the Progressive online product lookup …

GiMoto Custom Motorcycle Leathers It was just about this time of year, long ago and far away, when Mom would drag me to the nearest department store to poke through the new crop of fall clothes for the upcoming school year. But we ran into the same problem every fall. I wasn’t short, fat or …

Choosing and Purchasing a One-Piece Leather Motorcycle Suit I finally got to the point in my track riding where my two-piece Dainese Rock leather suit just wasn’t cutting it any more. Not that I am all that fast on the track… But when I originally purchased the suit I had no idea whether I would …
