Triumph ISDT Motorcycle Jacket Review

web-TriumphJacket

I like my riding gear like I like my motorcycles––simple, classic and functional––and when I got a Triumph Bonneville I developed a yearning for a jacket like the old waxed-cotton Belstaff I had in my lost youth. It was a foul green and smelled so bad my roommates wouldn’t let me come in the house wearing it––they made me hang ...

Sena 20S Motorcycle Bluetooth Communication System Review

web-PIECE-IMG_5786

I’ve been disappointed by the sound quality of wireless, in-helmet communication systems. Sena’s 20S Motorcycle Bluetooth (4.0) Communication System has the best sound quality I’ve found in a wireless comm system, plus sophisticated features. You can make hands-free calls from your iPhone or Android phone, listen to stereo music, share music with another rider, hear GPS voice prompts and have ...

Olympia Moto Sports Horizon Rain Jacket and Pants Review

web-Olympia

Riding in the rain is either one of the great joys of motorcycling or one of its biggest hassles. Either way you look at it, you need a good rainproof outer layer to keep the rain out.

Joe Rocket's Alter Ego 3.0 All-Weather Riding Suit Review

web-front-IMG_5254

Two weeks on tour in Italy and 8,000 miles away from home, one hopes to have made the right gear choices. Big temperature variations and the occasional rain shower are best addressed with a bit of layering. Rather than taking a rainsuit, I chose to wear Joe Rocket’s Alter Ego 3.0 multi-layer all-weather system. Two layers in the jacket, one ...

web-_DEB5966

BMW is stepping up the presence of its riding apparel and helmets with an extensive lineup for 2015. This new, aggressive stance is to draw attention to the fact that the German manufacturer doesn’t merely purchase its gear from apparel manufacturers and slap the BMW name on it but, in fact, has a dedicated R&D facility at BMW headquarters in ...

Aerostich Darien Motorcycle Riding Suit Review

web-lede

When I get a riding suit I look for protection against the elements, such as cold, heat and rain, but its primary purpose needs to be protection against injury during an accident. There are some awfully posh outfits that look great, but should I be tumbling down the road at 60 mph, perhaps I am less interested in how I ...

Macna Oasis Motorcycle Jacket Review

web-Macna-Oasis_1

A jacket can make or break a ride, especially a long one. Comfort, weatherproofing, cooling and body protection all come into play as the miles roll on. Months of testing the Macna Oasis jacket, which included riding with Patrick Kant, owner of the Dutch company that makes Macna clothing, gave me an in-depth experience with their mid-priced jacket. With that ...
