Track days are growing in popularity as the word is getting out on how much fun they can be.  In the past, the thought of doing a track day was intimidating for many riders.  It still is for some, but the myths about riding on the tracks are slowly being dispelled every time a new comer leaves with a giant grin.  Riders are learning that you don’t need to be the best rider and racer to participate.  In fact, the track is a perfect place to hone your skills and become a better rider without ever having to race anyone.  With a few simple modifications to your bike and with the right gear, you can be ready to hit the track. When you do a track day, […]

Yes, that little pillion on the back of your sport bike can hold a passenger. Not everyone wants to ride their own bike, but a lot of people still want the experience of riding a sport bike.  Being a passenger is the next best thing to actually controlling the sport bike.  You might know someone close to you that falls into this category.  Once you’ve become a solid rider on your own, you can ride two-up on your sport bike to share those experiences with that someone. Now that’s not to say that you should just tell that person to hop on and head for the nearest twisties.  Riding with a passenger is a whole new experience for the passenger and you as well.  Before you hit […]

Doing track days on your bike can really test your skills and help you develop as a rider.  You get to push yourself and your bike to the limits.  You will also be pushing your gear to the limits.  That’s why it’s important to have outstanding motorcycle gear that you can trust. The only problem is that the price tag can add up when you have track specific gear.  To cut down on the costs, you can find gear that can be worn both on the street and on the track.  Alpinestars is known for their racing gear, but they also make gear that is at home both on the track and the street.

Don’t let all of the cruiser guys fool you.  You don’t need a big Bagger with air ride suspension to see the countryside comfortably.  That same sportbike that you love cracking the throttle on can be used to cruise on for the long rides as well.  No matter what bike you ride, a rocket or even a Goldwing, you will eventually feel some aches and cramping if you put in enough saddle time.  With some mods to your sport bike, you can make it just as comfortable as a cruiser and you will be able to put on the miles that you want. Adjustable Rearsets So often when you are riding a sportbike, your knees begin to ache from being stuck in a crouched position.  Your body […]

Let’s face it.  Most protective motorcycle gear is not all that comfortable to wear.  The armor can bunch up and it can feel like you’re wearing a turtle shell.  Then there is the dilemma of having to do something with your jacket when you make stops.  Many times we see riders just forget about their gear all together and ride in their casual apparel with no protection at all.  Speed and Strength has recognized this problem and has created riding gear that has the look and comfort of casual apparel, but the protection of armored riding gear. Moto Mercenary Armored Hoody We have all seen the guys that love to ride in their hoodies.  These riders just want to be comfortable and look casual when they ride.  They […]
