Gain Ultimate Control with ATV/UTV Power Steering Kits

Posted on 10 Apr 2018 in Powersports | 0 comments

Power steering on an ATV or UTV may not be a feature that you think is a ‘must have’.  And for a lot of riders it isn’t a must.  But power steering is for sure something that can make your rides a lot more pleasurable and less tiring. The fact that many new wheelers now offer electronic power steering as an option is proof enough that it can improve your riding.  Understandably so, though, the box for EPS on the order form often goes unchecked in an effort to save some dollars on a new machine.  You’ve been riding without it for so many years already, so why get it now?  You’ll find the answer to that the first time you ride someone else’s machine that is […]

Posted on 09 Feb 2018 in Powersports | 1 comment

Who doesn’t love performance.  We love to talk about it and we love the way it feels when we twist the throttle.  But not everyone knows where to start in order to maximize the performance of their machine.  Knowing what parts to get and what adjustments to make can be a challenge. Many riders start with a Stage 1 upgrade, which is a great first step.  But what if you want more than that?  The next step is a Stage 2 upgrade consisting of swapping cams along with doing the Stage 1 upgrade.  This step does require some internal work and in turn, you need to have a bit more confidence in your wrenching skills if you are to do it yourself.  If that is too much […]

New Motorcycle Jackets for Fall Riding ‘17

Posted on 06 Oct 2017 in Powersports | 0 comments

Fall. Is there a better time of year to go riding? Of course, the changing foliage makes for some of the most scenic views. But the average temperatures are what really makes it great. You no longer have to melt your skin as you race from one stop to another to escape the summer sun. And you don’t have to weigh the consequences of choosing between breeze on your skin versus the protection of a motorcycle jacket.

Posted on 25 Jul 2017 in Motorcycle, Powersports | 0 comments

Who has your back when you’re out riding?  Unfortunately, the answer is not really anyone.  Motorcycle riders need to have a heightened sense of awareness, especially with today’s distracted riders.  Knowing what’s around you at all times is crucial in keeping the rubber side down.  That includes what’s coming up behind as well.  But with the wrong mirrors, you could be oblivious to what is actually back there.  By choosing mirrors that best fit you and your bike, you can better watch your six to be able to get the hell out of Dodge if you need to. Motorcycle mirrors aren’t always at the top of everyone’s aftermarket list.  And many stock mirrors are chosen to best fit the “average” rider.  You’re not average, though, are you?  […]
