Questions and Answers

Have a question that you just can't seem to find an answer to?

How to be Faster and Safer

Being a fast rider doesn't mean you have to be unsafe and being a safe rider deosn't mean you have to be slow. The two concepts are not mutually exclusive. We'll cover our top seven tips to becoming a better, faster and safer rider.

How Should I Prioritize Safety Gear Purchases?

What is the most important piece of motorcycle safety gear? How do you know how to allocate your budget when purchasing new motorcycle gear, particularly for the first time or new rider. We rank motorcycle safety gear in order of importance to help guide your decision making process.

Do I Need to Dyno Tune After Installing a Slip-On?

Is it important to have your motorcycle tuned when you add a slip-on exhaust system and/or a free-flow air filter to my motorcycle, or is it only necessary to have a bike dyno-tuned when I fit a full exhaust system?

Is a More Expensive Helmet Safer?

We try to tackle the age-old question: Does a more expensive motorcycle helmet provide more protection than a cheap helmet? There are several helmet certifications from DOT to SNELL and even BCI/ECE/Sharp. Which one(s) need to be on the next helmet you buy?

WorkShop

Our WorkShop section is designed to help you get the most out of the motorcycle ownership experience, but simplifying some of the more common maintanance tasks and upgrades motorcycle riders face. We start with basic tools needed to work on your own bike and move on from there.

Riding Techniques

Below are some riding technique articles that we've put out over the years. Tips and tricks we've learned that we hope can help you better enjoy the riding experience.

Packing List

We've been asked so many times, "what should I pack?" that we finally decided to put something on the website. This list is intended to cover a rider for about three to five days on the road. Longer rides require appropriate adjustments in clothing etc (or plans to stop and do laundry).

Group Riding

If you are even remotely social you will find your self in various size groups from time to time. Plus, if you ever take advantage of an overseas group tour, you may be thrown in with riders you've never met.

Waving

Long ago before motorcycles were as common as they are today, waving was a time-homored tradition, largely because motorcycles were so unreliable back them. But things have since changed, and we feel like it's time to tweak the old tradition of waving.

We've been extremely fortunate to have recieved some very positive feedback. Check it out and see what others are saying about us.
