What if you were told that you could put a shorter windshield on your bike, but the air would flow higher over your head? You would accuse the messenger of being a snake oil salesman. Well, I’m here to tell you that the new Memphis Shades windshield does just that, but I don’t have any snake oil for sale. The design of the Drop-Top™ windshield allows for the wind to be pushed higher and over the rider’s head. Many windshields need to be in the rider’s line of the sight to be able to completely block the wind. You can either look through them or keep them lower and deal with helmet buffeting. The Venturi Wing™ design on the Drop-Top eliminates this dilemma. This new windshield design […]

If you have never packed for an extended motorcycle trip, the idea of fitting everything that you need on your bike can be overwhelming.  You start thinking of all the things that you use on a daily basis and wonder how it could all fit in your saddlebags.  With some careful planning and strategic packing, you can get everything that you need in one set of saddlebags.   So where do you start?  First you have to determine what you will actually need on the trip.  Notice the word is “need” and not “want.”  A motorcycle trip is about stripping back the unnecessary and hitting the open road.  If you want to bring with more than can be carried on your bike, you might want to just […]

If you’ve torn your bike’s engine down and built it back up, you probably have respect and love for the inner workings of the powerplant.  You know what the business end of your clutch looks like under the derby cover and you can picture the chain turning under the cam cover.  There’s just one problem.  When it’s all back together, you’re only left with your imagination to picture it all working behind the covers.  That is unless you install the products from the Roland Sands Clarity Line. Roland Sands Design has always been on the cutting edge to make your bike stand out from the rest.  RSD has a knack for making a bike go from just another one off the factory line to a one of […]

Working on your motorcycle isn’t always putting in an aftermarket cam or rebuilding the top end.  Those big projects may make big differences to your bike, but sometimes the little things can build into big projects if they are left unattended.  Many of us just ignore doing the little things, thinking that we can do it later because it’s not so important.  While it may not be as pressing as re-ringing that cylinder with low compression, the little things can add up pretty fast, especially if that Murphy guy has his way.  So take the time and do the small things to keep your bike in the best running condition that it can be.  Here are some of the small things that you can do in little […]

In the United States, our military is constantly being outfitted with the best gear possible.  Their gear is made to endure the harshest of environments with soldiers’ lives on the line.  So what does that have to do with motorcycling?  One brand bridges this gap.  Bates.  Bates boots are known around the motorcycle industry as some of the most durable and comfortable boots on the market, but Bates is also one of the largest suppliers of footwear to the U.S. federal government, the Department of Defense and public service departments throughout the country.
