Your Friends Will Love These – 5 Insane Motorbike Christmas Gifts

The holidays are near.  And for better or worse, ‘Tis the season. For better because you’re going to receive gifts from other people. For worse because, well, you’ll have to spend on gifts for other people. Just kidding. Jokes aside: it doesn’t matter if it’s for Secret Santa at work or your family and friends back home- gifts matter to people. Including the people giving them. I love seeing my nephew’s little face light up when he unwraps the video games I gift him that his parents didn’t. I love surprising my friends with the occasional bottle of wine and…

How To Best Listen To Music On A Motorcycle?

Now there’s a question you don’t get to see every day. “Listening to music while riding?” Yes. “Seriously? Yes. “There are so many things wrong with that I don’t even know where to begin.” Cool, let me begin for you. Why you think listening to music on a motorcycle is dangerous: The problem “I’ve read up on all those crashes on the highways. A lot of them were idiots with headphones. I don’t need to read mass-produced pamphlets by safety experts to know how dangerous riding with headphones is”. This is a valid fear to have – and an important…

Worried About Budget? Worry No More | Uclear AMP Go

I remember checking out the newly released 2017 Road King at the New York City Flagship store in Long Island, two years back.  There were two groups of people present.  Those of us who were infatuated but had financial constraints.  And the rest who were infatuated without financial constraints. As the salesman conversed with those in the latter group, I started a conversation with this kid from Stony Brook. He was in group 1 too. He had been riding for two years with a hand-me-down Honda DN-01 he got from his older brother.  “All I could afford after tuition was…

Love riding videos? Halocam M1 vs Blueskysea Motorcycle Dash Cam

Life isn’t fair most of the time. Back in 2011, my brother got t-boned by a car that ran a stop sign onto a country road. It wasn’t exactly a hit and run…but the driver did leave after 2 minutes of them exchanging verbal blows. And exchanging their number plate details. My brother was lucky to be in full-body gear (reminder), but his motorcycle wasn’t. The frame on the right side was damaged and his front forks and radiator were bent hard. He took the guy to court, but his lawyer didn’t have a lot to work with.  There were…

The Best Bobber Motorcycle Kits – Why Are Bobbers So Beautiful?

In a postmodernist culture, most things are rejected with irony and sarcasm, dismissed as ‘fake’. This is the reason why vintage engineering holds so much power. Leather jackets. Tuxedos. Young men pretending to enjoy whiskey because their friends in frats drown in beer. This is one of the reasons the bobber motorcycle is making a comeback. A staple among hardline motorcycle enthusiasts back in the 90s, the bobber motorcycle is the physical embodiment of authenticity. Stripping away unnecessary kilograms of vanity, the Bobber does not concern itself with trying to look cool.  And that makes it look much, much cooler.…

10 Best Women’s Motorcycle Gloves That Look Incredible

I stared at my Ninja ZX-11. Barely any scratches, it was a week old. “How long until I get good at riding?” “You do it for about 5 years until you get a false sense of invincibility.”  That was over two decades ago. Even though my brother was joking, he was right. Especially about the false sense of invincibility. I’ve ridden thousands of miles ever since I hit the road. Accustomed myself to all the riding conditions. I’ve also acquainted myself with hundreds of riders along the way.  And I’ve got into a lot of accidents, armed with different levels…

Checking Your Phone Every 10 Minutes? Garmin Zumo 595LM vs TomTom Rider 550 Review

Do I really need GPS? I don’t have amnesia… but my memory isn’t exactly photographic.  Neither is yours. Which is a problem. You can’t afford to go by your non-photographic memory. Especially when you’re riding through the city.  Did I miss the right turn? Or turn right at the wrong turn? Do I turn right at this turn? And if I catch a signboard or a landmark at the last minute, I can’t switch lanes.  Outside the city, the state of affairs is even worse. Unless you like having awkward conversations with strangers you don’t know for directions.  Or ride…
