Stop & Go Mini-Air Compressor Review

Stop-Go-Mini-Air-Compressor

Just as carrying an umbrella or rain gear has a way of warding off inclement weather, packing tools and a patch kit seems to help prevent the inconvenience of roadside repairs. Or it could just be that today’s motorcycles are reliable and tires are durable. Nonetheless, whether you uphold the Boy Scouts’ motto or believe an ounce of prevention pays ...

Book review: Harley-Davidson Everything you Need to Know

HD-everything-you-need-to-know

[This Harley-Davidson—Everything you Need to Know Book Review was originally published in American Rider] Like “new and improved,” the phrase “everything you need to know” packs a lot of implications. Aside from promising to deliver information that is both all-inclusive and necessary, the phrase also promises to tailor this information to “your” needs. While in most cases grandiose claims of ...

CruzTOOLS RoadTech M3 Tool Kit

Tools. Isn’t that one of the things that separates us as motorcyclists from the lower species like, say, politicians? A few days ago a friend of mine called to see if I could get him a tool kit to replace the one that now lay on the side of the road somewhere. A quick look at the CruzTOOLS website  and a ...

Giant Loop MoJavi Saddlebag

Carrying stuff on a dual-sport day ride is easy, right? You toss it in a backpack or bum bag and head for the hills. Or maybe you bungee it to the back or drop it into saddlebags.

TCX Competizione RS Boots

Tango Charlie X-ray. Totally Cool Xylophone. I don’t know what TCX stands for, but I have come to love their boots. Formerly known as Oxtar—a name that was probably abandoned because it invoked images of livestock drenched in black goo, or because it sounded too much like “Oxcart,” something that is decidedly slower than a motorcycle—TCX is an Italian manufacturer of ...

After April showers bring May flowers, June is bug season. Lately I’ve noticed a thicker than usual crust of splattered bug guts on my bike, my gear and—above all—my faceshield.

Aerostich LP Bag

One of the most memorable and hilarious comedy routines was the late George Carlin’s “A Place for My Stuff.” With his signature irreverent style, Carlin probed right to the heart of the American obsession with accumulating stuff, and our ever-growing need for places to put that stuff. By necessity, motorcyclists pack light. But we still need places to put our ...
