Scorpion Leather Motorcycle Jacket and Pants

Scorpion started making women’s riding gear last year, part of its EXO clothing line. I tested the leather Elektra jacket and Haley pants. The thick cowhide leather jacket feels broken-in right off the rack. Even without the full-length liner zipped in, the jacket kept me warm on cool riding days. The medium jacket I tested […]

MDM Cycle Enclosures Harley Cover

A recent turn of events beyond my control has made it impossible for me to put a motorcycle, or anything else for that matter, in my garage. To address this potentially catastrophic problem, I called Don Skoldberg, general manager at MDM Products for some advice. Good move on my part, because Don’s company had an […]

Chase Harper Motorcycle Tailpack Review

When you need a way to carry stuff on a motorcycle, there is nothing quicker or easier than strapping a tailpack to the back of your ride. The beauty of this type of luggage is that it comes in all shapes and sizes and can fit almost any type of bike. I have been using […]

Vertigo Mega GORE-TEX Motorcycle Boots

Over the years, my brick-like feet have destroyed many different types of footwear. Knowing that I would be spending extended time on a Buell Ulysses XT, I decided it was time to get a pair of on-road, sport-riding boots that were befitting the Uly. Because I wanted only the best quality, I turned to SiDi […]

Gator Skins Cold Weather Riding Gear

Like a salmon going back to its breeding grounds, every year I ride from the frozen Northeast or Dallas to Daytona, Florida, for Bike Week. If I’m riding down the coast, I have to be hermetically sealed in gear and wearing electric gloves, vest, and socks to keep from freezing my butt off, since the […]

EAR Inc. 3-1 System For Harley Riders

I’ve been wearing custom earplugs ever since I met the folks from EAR Inc. My first set was a pair of Insta-Molds made for me on the spot at the Sturgis rally. After getting molds made of my ears, I graduated to a pair of Chameleon Ears. From there I upgraded to Acoustic Filtered Chameleon […]

Helmet Accessories – How To Secure Your Motorcycle Helmet

If you’ve ever met me at an event, you may have noticed that I travel light. By that I mean no chains, pins, rings, etc. Heck, I don’t even like loose change in my pockets. With a mindset like that, the last thing I want to haul around with me is a helmet! But what […]

Harley Ramble Motorcycle Boots

When I picked up street riding this summer, I knew I needed a boot that was designed for the kind of riding that I wanted to do. Flipping through the Harley-Davidson Footwear catalog, I stopped on the Ramble. It’s a conservatively styled boot, so my gear wouldn’t speak louder than my minimal street-riding skills. But […]

ACC Carbon Motorcycle Helmet Review

Honestly, sometimes the last thing we at AIM want to put on when going for a ride is a helmet. This could be because we fancy ourselves a bunch of dashing, windswept heroes whose rakish good looks should never be hidden, even by a hat, much less, a burdensome bauble — protective though it may […]

Harley Skyline Helmet For Women Riders

Does a woman have a differently shaped head than a man? Harley-Davidson thinks so, and it’s now offering a helmet designed exclusively for women: the Skyline. According to Harley, women say helmets generally sit too high on their heads because they have more hair than men, resulting in poor fit. The Skyline comes in half-shell, […]
