Condor PS 1500 Pit Stop / Trailer Stop

May 01, 2008 View Comments

A good wheel chock is one of those items I’d always wanted, but never got around to procuring. But having recently gotten a Condor® PS1500, I’m wondering how I managed so long without one. The first thing noticed during the simple assembly was the unit’s adjustability. According to the company specs, the PS1500 can accommodate […]

BMW Comfort Shell Suit

May 01, 2008 View Comments

Touring the Alps for nine days with RoadRUNNER as chase rider and photographer, I knew the correct motorcycle gear was going to be very important. Though I knew I would need a rain suit, I really didn’t want to take up precious saddlebag space carrying one along. After explaining my needs to Anja Kuechler at […]

2007 Tour de Pink

May 01, 2008 View Comments

Inspired by the exploits of Tour de France legend Greg Lemond and other Americans racing in Europe, I was a rabid, but not very rapid, cyclist in the 1980s. It was exotic stuff to me – wiry cyclists battling over impossibly brutal Alpine passes, the frenzied crowds threatening to swallow them whole, and then in […]

Say what?

It was a beautiful late spring day. I had just crossed the border from California into Arizona, piloting a big, bad cruiser: Yamaha’s Road Star Silverado.

2006 KLR 650 – Makeover Madness

May 01, 2008 View Comments

I’ve never owned a car or motorcycle that didn’t prompt me to “make it better” by modifying the original machine with a few – OK, many – aftermarket parts. Annoying as it sometimes is to others, it cannot be helped. This “I can’t leave things well enough alone” compulsion probably took up residence in my […]
