Trans America Trail: Moab to Salina (Home of the World’s Best Chicken Dumplings!)

Aug 21, 2014 View Comments by Joseph Trey

This morning I’ve turned the parking area outside of our room into a garage; opting to rebuild the rear and front brakes just to be thorough. When my fingers prove not to be an adequate vice, I head to the local Ace Hardware store to acquire the “magical C-clamp.” I cannot help feeling like I […]

Dramatic views back down the valley and the vistas of the Absaroka and Beartooth ranges include […]

I Sold My Bike

Aug 19, 2014 View Comments by Wayne Peterson

After all my advice in a previous blog “So, You Want To Sell Your Bike?,” I ended up having to wholesale mine to a dealer. Lost some money, but I was able to get the bank off my back with a few bucks to spare. There were no “separation issues”; I was glad to see […]

Review: Scorpion EXO-R2000 Helmet

Aug 18, 2014 View Comments by Steve Mauk

The old adage “you get what you pay for” isn’t always true; in some cases you get more. Premium helmets generally command a premium price, but the feature-packed Scorpion EXO-R2000 offers a long list of amenities for less than $400. Starting with performance ratings, the R2000 meets both Snell M2010 and DOT standards. The R2000’s […]

MotoMojo: 3M Paint Defender Kit—Protect Your Bike’s Finish and Save Money!

Aug 17, 2014 View Comments

Up until just recently, about the only thing you could do was apply a coat of wax or pay to have a costly clear film applied by a professional detail shop. Those clear plastic films are tricky to install. Even pros have a tough time as lots of prep work is required, and the film […]

Review: Firstgear Women’s TPG Monarch Jacket and TPG Escape Pants

Aug 16, 2014 View Comments by Christa Neuhauser

With more and more women taking to two wheels, women’s gear is finally starting to come into its own. Female riders have more choices than ever before (though still nowhere near as many as men), and we’re not just talking about downsized men’s apparel with some pink butterflies thrown on. Perhaps one of the best […]

City Escape: Los Angeles Northbound

Aug 15, 2014 View Comments

A great northern escape from Los Angeles is through Ojai and the Los Padres National Forest, which is commonly considered the “better way” of getting to the Pacific Coast Highway from LA (between Cambria and Carmel). Best rides are in the fall when central valley temps drop below 100 degrees.

Trans America Trail: Ouray to Moab

Aug 14, 2014 View Comments by Joseph Trey

Just loading the bike this morning is a bit challenging. My foot continues to swell, but once forced into the boot, it is a little more bearable. After missing portions of the Alpine Loop, I am determined to make it up to Luke. My plan is to get us to Moab tonight and catch up […]

American Road Trip: Too Young to Ride a Gold Wing?

Aug 13, 2014 View Comments by Florian Neuhauser

It’s true. Sarah and I aren’t Honda’s typical target market for the Gold Wing. We’re both in our twenties. Does that mean we can’t enjoy the luxury of the Gold Wing? I’m very lucky to have access to all types of bikes, and I have ridden a wide variety of motorcycles. So I know what […]

Trans America Trail: Happy Birthday Luke!

Aug 09, 2014 View Comments by Joseph Trey

As we leave the trail and enter Salida, I’m fully tempted to call it a day. Bearing any weight on my foot is not an option, but letting my boot hold the bones together is. There are those that say the KLR doesn’t have a very comfortable seat for long distances, but in my present […]

Sarah & Flo’s American Road Trip

Aug 08, 2014 View Comments by Florian Neuhauser

When I first met Sarah six years ago, we instantly bonded over stories of travel and all of the places we wanted to see. Yet, just like most peoples’ lives, busy schedules got in the way and before we knew it, time passed, having never checked off any “must see” items. For me the past […]
