K&L Bearing Packer Harley Tool

Ever pack a bearing by hand? It’s a messy pain in the butt. Why I did it for so many years I don’t know. Maybe it was because I was too cheap to buy a manual packer. Now that I’m older and much lazier, I don’t want to bother with that crap any longer. Or […]

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 […]

American Motorcycle Girls 1900 to 1950 Book Review

The American Motorcycle Girls 1900 to 1950: A Photographic History of Early Women Motorcyclists is a book I’m excited about because it’s a professional presentation of a topic I’m passionate about: women riders.
