An Appalachian Autumn Adventure – Having RoadRUNNER’s headquarters in North Carolina, our staff benefits a lot from the extra one or two months of riding season that living in the South allows. If you’re not so lucky, you might want to consider a guided tour such as the Appalachian Autumn Adventure Motorcycle Tour led by […]
Supporting the Motorcycle Community – The Progressive International Motorcycle Shows (IMS) recently launched its Summer of Sponsorship program in an effort to support the motorcycle community by sponsoring bike nights, events, and rallies all over the U.S, including the 43rd Annual BMW Motorcycle Owners of America (BMW MOA) rally, which was held in Billings, MT […]
It’s been more than a few years since the rise of the “Adventure” bike and several more since Bell Helmets developed the first full-face motorcycle lids back in 1971. In that time the “bucket” that (hopefully) protects our noggins has come a long way in terms of design, materials, and safety. Fast forward to present […]

The Rust and Redemption jacket from Speed & Strength has a simple, classic look yet provides the rider with a versatile and protective […]
A Factory Sponsored Custom – Shockingly the latest factory backed custom creation from Indian does NOT involve Roland Sands. The builder behind this black beauty is Jeb Scolman, who also built the Spirit of Munro for the debut of the Thunder Stroke 111 engine. The Black Bullet Scout isn’t really a modified Indian Scout as […]
Another Look at Shoei’s Modular – We’ve reviewed the Shoei Neotec before, and quite favorably. However, after I recently wore it during a 1,700-plus mile, eight day tour in temperatures that reached 115-degrees, I thought I would report again on how it faired. It was hot. Really hot. So hot that opening the visor felt […]

3400 Miles and a Mountain of Memories – It was amazing. A ride along the Great Divide has been a goal of mine for years. The fact that it was a tribute for my father and a fundraiser for Alzheimer’s research made it extremely significant to me personally. You can see the details in my […]
What Should You Bring? – If you’re like me, you don’t want any type of mechanical problem to deal with during a motorcycle tour. And, of course, the best way to keep that from happening is a heavy dose of preventative medicine before your bike ever leaves the garage. But unforeseen mechanical malfunctions can and […]
