Sep 08, 2014 View Comments by

When fellow RoadRUNNER editor Florian Neuhauser returned from a tour of Florida on our 2014 Indian Chieftain press bike, he had a few complaints about the bike’s stock seat, though, as far as OEM seats go, Indian’s is certainly one of the best. Still, after a couple thousand miles it was obvious that this was […]

Review: Joe Rocket Reactor 3.0 Mesh Jacket

Aug 25, 2014 View Comments by

Joe Rocket’s website lists the Reactor 3.0 as a hybrid mesh/leather jacket, but that’s not really true. This is a mesh jacket that has a few nice leather accents. Since it is a full mesh jacket, you may well imagine that the Reactor 3.0 offers excellent airflow and is ideal for hot summer riding weather, […]

Review: AeroMoto Sport Leather Motorcycle Jacket

The combination of clean, simple styling, good materials, and low price doesn’t come around too often so when it does you’ve got to take a look. AeroMoto is one of the in-house brands of motorcycle gear distributor Competition Accessories, and the elimination of the middleman is why the price is so reasonable. That old saying […]

Review: Harley-Davidson Ranger Boots

Nov 29, 2013 View Comments by

Touring boots are fantastic. They offer great protection and comfort on long motorcycle rides, and many are, or at least claim to be, waterproof as well. Where their luster fades is on shorter rides, commuting for instance. For quite a while I wore my touring boots to work every day and changed into a pair […]

Montana Jacket from British Motorcycle Gear

Sep 04, 2013 View Comments by

The BMG Montana is a classic-looking, vintage-styled jacket. The leather is a rugged 1.4mm grade A cowhide, but it is also quite supple. It’s the type of leather that one might expect to find on a nicely finished dress jacket. It wears, smells, and feels like a quality leather garment should. Once worn the leather […]

BiLT Pro Tourer Leather Boots

Jun 07, 2013 View Comments by

My first impression of these budget-priced touring boots was that they were too stiff and would be difficult to walk in. Though this is expected of boots more dedicated to protection (like MX), a good pair of touring boots should be a compromise between walking comfort and riding protection. Fortunately, I was wrong. It only […]
