Santiago Boots

Jan 01, 2007 View Comments by

In combination with a dual-sport bike, these boots are a perfect fit. They come with decent shin protectors, an important feature for off-road use. Anyone who’s been hit by a stone flipped by a front wheel knows the feeling. Heel and toe reinforcements help protect the foot from pain, and the sturdy ankle construction could […]

RATCO 3rd Brake Light System

Jan 01, 2007 View Comments by

To say that being visible to motorists in lower light situations is important to motorcyclists is an extreme understatement. While plenty of eye-catching options are available to boost our visibility from the front, not many have come along to protect the rear flank.

Gerbing Cascade Extreme Riding Suit

Jan 01, 2007 View Comments by

A late October ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway, with its explosion of reds and yellows, is one of the most beautiful rides imaginable. Yet, the higher elevations and the autumnal temperatures can conspire to make for a frigidly unpleasant affair. Such was the case several months ago. Thankfully, Gerbing’s Cascade Extreme riding suit was […]

If you ride, then you know that bookbag-style packs are easy to carry, practical, and can handle anything from lunch to gear for a few days on the road – if you travel light, that is. As my old favorite was in tatters, I was happy to grab the Day Pack Deluxe from Marsee as […]

Triumph Hard Carbon Gloves

Jan 01, 2007 View Comments by

These gloves are among the most comfortable we have tested, in a category where comfort is sometimes sacrificed for aesthetics and protection. They feature full-knuckle, carbon weave Keprotec® abrasion panels, double leather impact panels, raised wrist padding, 3M® night reflective piping, and ventilated finger sections. The leather is very soft and supple. The carbon weave […]
