arai xd-4 vs shoei hornet x2 vs klim krios pro

A Three Helmet Showdown Is About To Go Down Search the internet today using the words “Best (insert topic here)” and you’ll get plenty of opinionated claims popping up from a myriad of sources touting their impartiality and honesty. But who can you really trust? It’s getting harder and harder to know whether the source …

Need an Adventure Machine? The SUVs of the motorcycle world are adventure bikes. They’re the motorcycles that are designed to do anything and pretty much everything. They can take you across the country comfortably, traverse difficult terrain, and they even handle much better than expected on a twisty canyon road. These motorcycles are the Swiss …

The Klim Cow Tagz XL rally poster

Challis, Idaho…  Have you heard of it? Maybe it’s just me who hasn’t, I’m not sure.  What I know now is that I can’t wait to go back to visit in 2020 so I can enjoy virtually unlimited, prototypical adventure motorcycle riding trails in the area. At the same time, I’ll participate in another Cow …

Confederate Motorcycles

A Unique American Motorcycle Company Confederate Motorcycles is a company that stands out from other motorcycle companies in the world.

Minibike race winners

Becoming More Official, Sort of When I pulled up to Duke’s Indy Honky Tonk on the south side of Indianapolis on October 27, I saw cones sitting where I usually park. They’d expanded the track.  By they, I mean the organizers of the Pullstart Racing League. By track, I mean the dirty, cracked, and ugly …

I’m sure it’s no surprise to hear one of my favorite things to do is to see and test new motorcycle products.  I want to give honest and open feedback to the manufacturer and consumer based on my observations and experience. I really love writing for wBW for that reason. Whenever someone tells me they …

wBW Visits Snell

I recently wrote a review of the Bell SRT Modular helmet that was, in my eyes, pretty standard wBW quality and unremarkable.
