The British Touring Jacket You’ve Always Wanted

I’ve wanted a Belstaff Tourist Trophy motorcycle jacket for a while. That classic, British, belt-waisted jacket made famous by just about every American actor who’s thrown a leg over a motorcycle. Most notably, Mr. McQueen (see: here). My good friend Andy has one, something he scored from a smelly thrift shop in the Pacific Northwest….

Moto Guzzi Unveils V85 TT

More and more manufacturers have been embracing the adventure bike concept as of late, and it has certainly created plenty of buzz. I mean who expected Harley Davidson to step up to the plate with their Pan America? But out of all the amazing bikes entering the arena, this new release from Moto Guzzi is definitely one…

Video of the Week: Ural’s Insane Product Testing

When most people see a motorcycle and sidecar rolling down the street, they think it’s a bit of a toy.

For a very long time, Harley has been selling loud and ostentatious cruisers as their one and only trick. Sure, they had an…

The 2018 Northwest Overland Rally

The NW Overland Rally, held in Plain, Washington, brings in overlanding enthusiasts from all across the Pacific Northwest and parts of Southwestern Canada—and occasionally places much farther away. Celebrating its eighth year, the NW Overland Rally (also known as NWOR) has grown from a small gathering of adventure-seeking attendees to a mid-sized rally that just…

Field Tested: Klim Artemis

With an improving industry standard in women’s motorcycle apparel, I was excited when the senior product developer at Klim asked me to scrutinize a two-piece set of their latest offering for women, made by women, the Artemis. As a full-time location independent rider, I require a suit that employs excellent protection and day-long comfort in the saddle…
