Icon Motorcycle Boots

Talk about a long-term test! I was asked to review a pair of boots two years ago, and I’ve finally got the word that the story is due. We’ve been through a lot, these boots and I; we’ve climbed mountains, tackled the badlands, and ridden from sea to shining sea. Ah, memories. But the important […]

Titan Bulldog Motorcycle Review

I know what you’re thinking: seen one motorcycle wheel chock, seen ’em all. Not true! While there are several models available, some have better features, which is the case with the all-new Titan Bulldog ($239). Made of steel, it weighs in at a hefty 33 pounds. The extra weight — plus the four large rubberized […]

Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Knives

A wise man once told me “Always carry a knife.” Well, over the years, I’ve taken that to heart and carried a plethora of knives. But these days I usually carry one of the Harley-Davidson knives shown here. There are about a dozen different Harley-branded knives to choose from, and the two shown are the […]

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 […]

TECHLINE Donny’s Technical Guide Book

There are two primary ways to become skilled at bike wrenching: go to tech school or learn on your own. The amount of available material is infinite, and it could take a lifetime to sort the good from the not so good, if you choose the latter route. Thankfully, however, there is one printed resource […]

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 […]

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 […]

Fix My Hog Motorcycle Tech Video

If you’ve checked your wallet lately, you know that the good old dollar ain’t what it used to be. We’re all feeling the economic crunch, and splurging is a thing of the past. And let’s be honest, it’s getting tougher to afford any form of dealership service for our beloved cycles. But the belt tightening […]
