Beat The Heat Roadtrips

Beat The Heat Roadtrips

Here we are, September, and in many places in North America – yes, even in Canada, it’s hot. Down South, the mercury routinely touches the century mark, and even my friends up in the Midwest are complaining about hot temps and humidity that’s off the charts.  The problem, of course, is that bikers like to […]


Starting Them Out Safely

Starting Them Out Safely

One of the things that’s frustrating about riding is the lack of options for learning about bikes unless you’re born into a family that rides.  I can’t tell you the number of young people that ask me about riding, and – if they’ve got an adult with them – the adult is usually quick to […]


Most of Us Can’t Use This Tip

Most of Us Can’t Use This Tip

But I’m going to tell you anyway.  A few weeks ago, a buddy of mine was bemoaning the way the old plastic on his street bike was faded and oxidizing.  He’d tried everything – the old school stuff like polishing compound, the latest gimmick on YouTube, and he’d even considered how he might be able […]


Fuelly Tips

Fuelly Tips

It seems freakin’ weird to be writing an article about fuel economy for motorcycles, but here we are.  Gas is through the roof and what once was a pleasant way to waste $30 on a weekend is now more like wasting a day’s pay on the weekend. Nevertheless, here goes: Get your tire pressure right. […]


Nevermind the Prices

Nevermind the Prices

First things first, prices on EVERYTHING are through the roof.  It doesn’t matter if you’re fertilizing a field, getting a tank of gas, or buying a drink at the store, it’s ALL gone up. Plenty of folks are struggling, and I’m willing to bet a few bikes are going to be sold off this year […]


Conquer the Chaos

Conquer the Chaos

Right now, it seems like the closer we get to riding season, the crazier the world will be.  Gas prices through the roof, inflation is making every-damn-thing expensive, and at this rate, I figure we’ll either be forced to sit on our bikes in the garage and make motorcycle noises with our mouths or be […]


Spring Start Up

Spring Start Up

Alright!  It’s drying out down here and, according to my friends up North, a lot of ya’ll are chomping at the bit to get on the road.  Let’s get riding season off to a good start… First of all, long before you try to turn that engine over, take a look at the battery.  If […]


The Low Down on Motorcycle Spark Plugs

The Lowdown on Motorcycle Spark Plugs

Now that many of us have our bikes put away for the winter and might be deep into projects for those same bikes, it’s a good time to talk about some maintenance items that you probably don’t think about. Spark plugs. Sure, a lot of riders don’t even think about them – they’ll leave their […]


A Few More Motorcycle Cleaning Hacks

A Few More Motorcycle Cleaning Hacks

In our last post, we talked about a few easy ways to keep your bike clean and protected during riding season and even though we covered a lot of ground, I realized that I hadn’t mentioned a few important ones. If you wear a full-face helmet or have a fairing/windshield, you have got to get […]


5 Top Tips For Buying A Second-Hand Motorbike

Choosing and buying a new motorbike is no easy feat as there are so many out there but, with a second-hand bike, there’s a lot more to consider.   Motorbikes don’t come cheap and, because safety is of paramount importance when riding, it’s essential that you carry out certain checks before you hand over your […]


I’ll Bet You’ve Never Thought of This…

Eventually, you’ll try anything to clean your motorcycle parts with. It could be because you’re out of your favorite product and can’t get it locally that weekend, it could be that you’ve finally gotten tired of all the elbow grease needed to get some kinds of cleaners to actually polish chrome or stainless, or maybe […]
